Samual Adams Imperial White

Td61 Apr 13, 2009 11:56 AM

I'm sorry to say, "This beer is a loser."
I should have guessed that a 10+ abv White beer just wouldn't work, but
I had to give it a try. EXTREMELY HARSH! Almost undrinkable.
Just my opinion. How about yours!

    I'm shocked by this. Oh wait, no I'm not.

    Have they ever made a good specialty release? I guess the Chocolate Bock was good, but outside of that I'm at a loss to think of one.

        I like the Hallertau Imperial Pils. I'm looking for the Longshot Series, cause I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy the IIPA. I also think they do a pretty good Octoberfest.

          I just paid 10 bucks for a four pack today. Hated it. Now I have to choke down three more of them. Ewww.

            I agree with you about the Imperial Pils. That, in my opinion, is the best beer the BBC has ever done.

            I thought the earliest editions of the SA Oktoberfest and Double Bock were good. I don't like what they've become.

            Their Octoberfest is pretty good.
