A great beer from the largest American brewer that brews its own...

Pours with a full head that sticks around a while.

Smell and taste of hops and slightly tea-ish with a hint of herb.

Mouth feel is nice and smooth. Not too hard or creamy.

Could hold it own against many imports.

Nice.

Great copper orange color that develops a good head of thick bubbles when poured in the center of a pint glass. Yeasty maltiness and some good hop scents jump from the glass. Good refreshing carbonation. This one is a great standby and will always satisfy. This is about the only lager that I enjoy. Good example of the Samuel Adams lineup.
