I poured this Carmel colored concoction right after I finished a Dogfish 60 Minute IPA. It was a terrific transition. Sam Ale had a cherry, malt, sweetness that I don't think I would have enjoyed if I didn't start with an IPA. Great head and lacing. Sudsy mouthfeel. An all around great brew. I will keep it in the fridge at all times.

Appearance - Pours dark orange-amber color with an inch thick head that lasts for a while. Has very nice lacing.

Smell - Toasted malts with caramel. Nothing else really..

Taste - Caramel with a sweet, toasty flavor. Has a slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Has a pretty thick body with a decent amount of carbonation.

Overall - I was excited to try the original beer made by Samuel Adams.. it's not bad.
