look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

appearance - 5/5 - Pours a an attractive orange/red with a creamy looking one finger head.

smell - 4/5 - A pleasant and fairly mild malt aroma.

taste - 4.5/5 - Both surprisingly and not-so-surprisingly similar to Boston Lager, only in Ale form. The malt aroma becomes a mild sweetness balanced by subtle earthy hops.

mouthfeel - 5/5 - Perfect level of carbonation that helps this beer be refreshing while still offering flavors to the palate.

overall - 4.5/5 - Seems to be what Bud's American Ale was aiming for, but of course, done to Samuel Adams level of quality. All I would ask of this beer would be a tiny bit more hops, but it's quite wonderful as is.
