look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a Samuel Adams signature pint.

Appearance: A darker gold, thin white head coming off maybe 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Hints of light pine, and floral type of feel when you smell it.

Taste: Robust in flavor and simply complex, light bitterness and feeling of toasted hops.

Mouth: medium to full carbonation, just freaking smooth!

Overall: Pound for pound one of the best beers, I have had it religiously especially when I hit the bar it is the best fail-safe out there. It has everything to offer, Salud!
