nice looking golden red color

better smelling than your average lager, but still not much going on, sweet malt and slight hops

tastes like it smells, good for a lager, but not too much going on

just the right amount of carbonation and density, very good for a lager

haven't tasted a ton of beers the world over, but this is one of the best lagers I have tasted, getting a decent smell and taste into a lager is a nice accomplishment, good job sam adams

Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass

A- Pours a golden hue with large pillowy white head that sticks around just for a little bit before heading off to other adventures in Jim Koch's world

S- Quite malty but still clean very slight hops in the background. Smells like the typical lager, not a ton going on but smells nice

T- Hoppier than the smell but thats not saying much. Still get the sweet malty taste you'd expect and it finishes when it leaves your mouth, not a lingerer.

M- Best part about drinking this beer, super smooth with just the right amount of carbonation.

O- Best thing about this beer is if I'm in a shitty bar in the middle of nowhere I can find this on tap and be happy with it.

Defnitely a good beer. Perfect balance between hops and malts. Pours a nice frothy head. Immediately notice hops and finishes with nice malty sweetness. This beer is good for just about any occasion. For sure an American classic without too many peers.

I have had this beer many times but finally decided to review it. Served in a bottle.

A: beer was amber in color with a decent head.

S: The beer is very floral ( due to the nobel hops). There was a slight toasted malt taste

T: Smooth with a good balance between hops and malt.

O: This is a good beer. It lives up to the hype behold the success of the Boston Beer Co brand.
