Well, had this one before in the bottle and on draught BUT never did a review on it. Came in with one of the seasonal 12-packs I bought earlier this year. Sampling right now on 8/20/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "Samuel Adams Boston Lager' pint glass. Just LOVE drinking a brew out of that brewery's glass if possible! :)

Pours a pretty amber in color with a good 1/2+ finger off-white foamy head. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped that actually leaves some rings even. The aroma is of roasted malts for the most part. The taste is right up front with the sweetness of the roasted malt followed by a very slight hoppy finish. It isn't bad actually and doesn't linger. Even better on draught. Overall a decent beer though many of their seasonal beers are better.

Am I the only one who thinks this beer's recipe has changed from let's say 10 years ago or so.

I used to like this beer ,but had a couple recently and it's just downright bad. From two different stores.

Anyone know the answer to this?
