3.25/5  rDev -9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

I was quite happy to finally find some of this available as singles. On the pour, a half finger head formed atop the clear amber liquid. Nice. A lot of promise.

Aroma was a lively blend of hops. Mostly floral, but some citrus as well. Very good.

Taste let me down. It started out as quite bitter, which transitioned into some hop resin flavor. But that was just about it. It faded quickly, and there was so little malt flavor I had to get halfway through the glass before I could find any. Just a wisp of toasted malt. It was completely out of balance. I expected much more from Sam Adams.

Mouthfeel was just OK. It did have some body, it wasn't watery. There just wasn't anything there to support.

I would give this average drinkability ratings. I would choose this if the only other choice was an adjunct lager. However, even though I am a hophead, I'd pass this over for a regular SA Boston Lager.
