Slightly malty, slightly bitter, slightly sweet, slightly hoppy. Pours a clear amber. Not really heavy on anything but that doesn't stop it from being flavorful. Not super complex by today's standards but far from dull. If your favorite modern craft brew is a vibrant young bombshell, this is her sexy milf of an older cousin.

Solid lager not as good as a golden road but hard to say it's anything but good/great for a lager. The competition in this category is mostly garbage. Well done.

I have never been disappointed with this one; it became available around here just about the time I became legal. Worth the extra money for rare occasions.

A perfectly balanced beer. Big, bold flavor. I have a hard time not gulping down the first three or four in rapid succession. Undoubtedly one of my top five favorite beers.

An American classic. Sam Adams helped blaze the craft beer trail with this lager. It looks very nice in the glass. Bready, earthy with good bitterness. If this was the only lager on tap at my local pub I would be very happy to have it. I haven’t had this in years but found it at Total Wine in 12 pack cans for $11.99! Hell yes! I’ll be keeping this in the fridge more often at that price. Cheers.
