I like brown ales, and have liked this beer for quite awhile. BUT it just
changed -- bought a 6 pack of bottles in Vons supermarket (big chain grocer) in
L.A. California and suddenly it tastes like Budweiser, though still looks brown!

Simply the best beer I have ever had.

America so my fellow citizens might enjoysomething a little better for a

Samuel Adams Light for a light beer.. but, if I hadone beer to drink for the
rest of my life (or one last beer before Idied), this would probably be it.

I recently saw an ad for Newcastle that said "goes down easy, like thefat kid in

I would expect that kind of ad for Budlight, not Newcastle. It actually makes

saw the adon a billboard on US 1 in Raleigh, NC. Thank you for your
