This beer can be compared to going to the prom with a pretty hot girl, who's rumored to put out pretty easily, but she gets so drunk she ends up puking all night and you end up holding her hair out of the vomit path. Sure, it may have been a fun evening, but the overall product was disappointing. Was Sam Adams better than Saranac and UFO? Absolutely. Was I expecting something more from Sam Adams? Again, absolutely. They really didn't put the kind of effort into getting the style right that Capital, Brooklyn and Shiner went through. Which just goes to show, if you want to get some at the prom, go with the girl that's not as well known, not as good looking, but came to the party ready to rock and roll.
