I don't usually drink Sam Adams but a friend brought this over yesterday so I gave it a try. Unlike St. Peter's Old Style Porter, this beer is a nice medium colour beer to go with pizza. I was concerned because I often find Sam Adams a bit too fruity, but unlike the official description I found it to be a bit hoppy, not too bitter and what I would describe as muddled (as opposed to clean).
Overall, ok but I would never rush out to buy this one.
According to Sam Adams website:
Samuel Adams® Brown Ale is a study in flavor, body, and style. Supported by an interesting blend of malts, it shines with a deep mahogany luster. The roasted malt blend is complex and deep as well, with notes of biscuit, nut and caramel. The hops are imported from Europe; Noble Spalt from Germany and citrusy Goldings, a traditional British ale hop selected from a single farm in East Kent. With moderate hop bitterness, a deep malt body, and a fruity ale fermentation character, Samuel Adams® Brown Ale satisfies the soul and doesn’t overwhelm the tongue.
