    That's good to know KJ, as I was considering picking up a 6'er to give it a second chance.

    I picked up the Midas Touch a couple weeks ago and will report back once I try it. I also have the DFH "Aprihop" which should be interesting, as well as their "Raison D'extra". I had their "Burton Baton" not too long ago and was pretty impressed. That was a barrel aged Imperial IPA if I recall. Their "Olde School" barleywine was a bit of a letdown, but their "90 Minute IPA" is among the best out there, while their "60 Minute IPA" is pretty solid too.

    Just remember the Midas touch is an ancient style beer before it was discovered that adding hops to beer added flavor, etc.

    It's going to be very different from any beer you have ever tried

    I will also say that Sam Adams Summer Ale sucks donkey balls this year. I bought a sixer, and the woman at the counter said "you know, it's only a few dollars more for a 12 pack". I had an already large assortment, and just wanted the six. I'm glad I saved the few bucks - because It's going to be slim pickens before I go back to the remaining few bottles. Here's hoping that some people I don't like come for a visit this summer.

    On the other hand, my wife wanted a light beer for summer, and I see that Belgium's Skinny Dip qualified quite well. I snuck one the other day, and wow I was pleasantly surprised the taste of this so-called light beer. It wasn't spectacular, but it was very refreshing and impressed me a lot.

    I guess I'm the only that liked Sam Adam's Summer Ale. Not my beer of choice, but drinkable. Usually, I don't like their Summer Ale due to too much of a lemony taste. It was more subtle this time around.

    I personally cannot stand Sam Adams. The only one I sorta liked was the black one. There are just too many other great beers available everywhere now. SA used to be a good choice when the selection was poor. Now it just tastes syrupy to me.

    I wonder what's up with SA nowadays? they used to be the beer of preference.

    I second AB's take on their Black Lager. that beer is something.

    I think the people at SA are trying too hard.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    I agree with AB$ that the industry passed them up. I was at the Yardhouse last week and the other Black Lager on the menu(forgot the brewery) is better than Sam Adams

    I really like the SA Winter Lager and Boston Lager. The rest are ok, better than BMC and a good choice to go with if you're ever stuck having to go to Chili's, Applebee's, etc...

    I thoroughly enjoyed their White Ale this year, which I think might be a reason for my strong disappointment for their Summer Ale. I've always been a fan of their seasonals.
