3.35/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Paid $13.99 as part of the "Brewmaster's Collection" 12-pack.

The apperence deserves some light beer award, it's got a nice dark color for a light beer, but no retention and though however some nice lacing, all-in-all good stuff... The aroma is a alright, it's a little hoppy in the nose!

The taste, pretty average, it's definately a Sam Adams, watered down about 20-25%, so I can live with it. Mouthfeel and Drinkability don't change from the original, good from the movement of the glass, down the throat, and in my tummy, yummy...

Final Thought: It's damn good from a light beer standpoint, but it's pretty average from a beer standpoint!

Best by Aug 2014, poured into a pint glass

A- pours a clear dark golden color with an orange hue, small creamy white head that retains nicely, due to some carbonation bubbles shooting to the top

S- toasted cracker malt with a subtle bready sweetness, faint grassy hops

T- light bready sweetness continues into the flavor with hints of a cream ale, small traces of grassy hops mix with a bit of yeast, lightly toasted malt on the finish

M- light-medium body with moderate-but-biting carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp and dry finish, high drinkability

O- the best light beer I've had to date, this certainly isn't a style that I enjoy often, but SA did a good job with this one
