This is not beer. This is why I can't buy Sam Adams' variety packs. I always end up with 3 of these nasty bastards. Sorry for that profanity...but it is appropriate here. Don't waste your money, even if you your looking for something that's a flavored brew.

(review #500 - and an extra special one, at that)

this may very well be one of the first, if not the first, "craft" beers I ever had...perhaps preceded by Sam Adams Boston Lager... haven't had this beauty but maybe once since I first went bonkers over it back in 1997... this possibly being the first time I've had it in 15+ years...it tastes exactly the same!!! way to go Boston Beer Co.!...

A: light golden, slight haze...white head, minimal lace, little retention

S: cherry extract / cough drop - very potent....graham cracker - potent enough itself.... no hops

T: cherry: extract, cough drop, candied (as - in a chocolate-covered cherry)... graham cracker, grainy, cereal-like malt flavor, but not malt sweetness....brown sugar, fresh-baked brown bread, toasty....grassy, "beer" flavor in the finish

M: fullish and smooth for what it is - the wheat and probably crystal malts have much to do with it.... if it drank thin, I'd probably puke

O: still tastes the same after all these years - amazing!....I loathe to admit it, but it's not all that bad a brew.... quirky and gimmicky - yes.... but, despite the quasi-artificiality of the cherry flavor, the balance and flavor profile is quite fine and, I dare say, I could have another...Lord knows, I downed a six pack just about day before noon on that spring break....
