In a pilsener (also had in a pint glass, nothing changed):

A: deep golden amber colored body with a lumpy foamy white head that leaves some of the foamy lacing in rings down the glass

S: fair amount of malts up front with some light caramel and toffee that are very faint

T: malts and caramel come back but are once again pretty faint, gets hoppy as it warms

M: light to medium, excellent choice for a session, no aftertaste, no finish, carbonation is barely felt

O: well this is Sam Adams' flagship, what can I say, I don't speak bad about this one, its good for the style and good for me
