I had this beer months ago, but i do remember that i couldn't get enough of it. Great taste, mouthfeel, and drinkability! If you ever find this one on tap i think it makes for a great session beer!!! While in Boston this is all I drank... when available of course.

On tap somewhere in Massachusetts. Rusty head with excellent retention. Nice malty aroma with a hint of hop. Very smooth with a subtle hop bite that balances out perfectly with the beers malt. Some chocolate malt? A nice, smooth Irish red. Great for the style. I could drink this all afternoon!

Had on tap at Union Ale House

Appearance: clear, red-brown in color, 1/4 inch head, medium carbonation

Smell: toasted malt and caramel

Taste: toasted malt, caramel, small citrus hops in the back

Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation and body, nice balance between sweet and bitter

Drinkability: A hoppier Boston lager...A very good beer that I could sip all day. One of Sam Adams better offerings and one of the better I have had in the style.

As far as I still know you can only get this in Boston. I had this on my trip to Boston in '11. Can't remember the bar name but it was right by the Oyster House.

Second Favorite Sam Adams beer next to Noble Pils. If you can only get this on tap around Boston, I suggest getting it and you won't regret it.
