I mean its samuel adams lager, its one of those commercial lagers that taste better as you drink more of them, i prefer it on tap depending on which place you go (some bars taps just straight up suck). I would like to note that the patriotism that comes with drinking this lager is where it is at. oh but it is nice to have one of these if you kinda dont want to have a craft beer but kinda dont want to have a budweiser, beats that pisswater yueling by a long shot.

Great look, golden colour with a nice white head.
The aroma is all right with floral hops honey and bread
The taste is less exciting with less hop character and more malt sweetness. The mouthfeel is not great either

Overall an alright lager
