Attractive golden color on the darker side. Sweetish malty nose, not hoppy like I'd expect. Smooth, unintrusive taste. The first impression I had of this beer was that it seemed to be more in the English Pale Ale style. The beer had some of the metallic characteristics of other English pale ales, like Samuel Smith's. This is as good as any other Sam Adams beer, but also what some people may interpret as being middle-of-the-road and forgettable.
