Let me say first, that one thing that bothers me about this website is that the site asks people to rate a beer based on its style. Sam Adams is, in my opinion, has more taste and better attributes than any light beer out there. If it isn't your favorite, it is probably in the top 3. But people rate it lowly because it doesn't have the same great tastes of a Double IPA. Well, it is a light beer, not a Double IPA and should be rated like one. Anyway, my rant of the day is over, on with the tasting...
Appearance is darker than almost all light beers. It has an amber, copper color with a nice white head that fades fast, but leaves a nice lacing.
Aroma is of toasted malts, but there is a nice floral smell to it as well. A lot of good smells that one normally does not get out of a light beer.
Taste is similar to the aroma. A nice biscuit taste with a good caramel malt taste as well. A bit of a hop taste, but the caramel taste is very stront. Much more taste than most light beers.
Mouthfeel is very light and refreshing, which is the most important aspect of a light beer to me.
Drinkability is awesome. Great taste and the refreshing style of a light beer. Definitely the best I have had and you can read more about my opinion above.
