Maple Syrup In Color With A Creamy Head. (Almost A 2 Finger Head)
Medium Lacing.
Taste is Slight Citrus And Slight Honey With Prominent Hops, Balanced With Caramel & Malt.
Hoppy Aroma Between Sweet & Bitter.
Samuel Adams Is Definitely Steps Ahead Of Your Typical American Macro Lager.
- A must try for anyone who is entering the world of craft beers or who wants a lager with better taste, scents and mouth feel.
This lager is excellent on its own or paired with pork and beef dishes. It's highly drinkable and a great brew in my opinion.
Well Done Boston Beer Company!

Deep amber color with an ample white head after the pour. Gives off a decent hop aroma, but nothing spectacular. Flavor begins malty with some hop bitterness increasing in prevalance over the finish. Thin mouthfeel. A well balanced beer, but nothing remarkable.
