Are you serious? A-? This is a joke...

Appearance - thin yellow water with a flimsy carbonated head that disappeared as fast as you can say 'Bobs your uncle!"

Smell - stale corona, or urine.. depending on the weather

Taste - Miller lite, but id rather have that for the pice

Mouthfeel - just plain horrible, theres nothing there

Drinkability - It was awful just like the rating I gave this beer, it was like carbonated water.. but its my fault because I didn't use that awesome glass in the commercial with the laser doop de doo line in the bottom that brings out all the secret hidden flavors in this bad beer.

I had this at a local Italian pizza shop.

This was very weak beer. The hops were barely there. It reminded me of Budweiser with a bitter blah-ness. It was just awful. I tried to like this beer. But Sam Adams is just putting names on stuff to make the beers sound like they may taste good. They failed here.

You want a good pilsner? Drink a Warsteiner.

I just don't get it. I don't enjoy a single thing about this beer and it's lauded as one of the best Sam Adams has to produce. Oh well. Okay, fine. I enjoy the colors on the label (no I don't).
