Clear copper-amber color topped off with a nice white head that stays just right and leaves a subtle lace. Nice floral hop aroma dominates the nose, backed by sweet and grainy malt. Hops and malt combine beautifully to create that classic unique Sam Adams flavor. Floral and slightly spicy hop character, a bit oily. Some would say metallic, but I would attribute this to the hops. Malt is again sweet and grainy, a great character. Exceptional balance and a great malt and hop pairing. Flavorful medium body that almost seems like a full body. Sweet and hoppy dry, crisp finish. This beer is a classic in so many ways. A crossover beer that converted many palates and created many beer advocates, as well as being a wonderful beer in itself and a great session brew. The world of micro/craft brewing owes a lot to this beer and this brewery. Appreciate it and enjoy it!
