12oz brown bottle. Poured copper coloured. Decent white head, lasted well. Flowery hops aroma. Good malt, slight touch of caramel. Nice hop malt balance as the bitterenss kicks in near the finish, leaving a little dryness.

Not too sweet or watery, nice for a lager. Bit sweet, and not up to ana verage craft beer. Some creamy mouthfeel and balance, crisp and dry aftertaste. Hint of floral aroma.

Hands down my favorite beer to drink on a regular basis. I just can seem to get past it when I’m pushing my cart through the walk-in cooler at the grocery store. I always drink this one from a pint glass to savor the aroma.

I like Sam Addams. It’s one of the better beers widely drank up here in Massachusetts.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 You know this beer is good right when you pour it in the glass. Dark amber color with thick head. The aroma is exceptional, sort of sweet and hoppy. Definitely one of the best lager’s around!

Deep amber color, clear. Lots of nice carbonation. Head looks very creamy, lacing looks great on the glass.

Caramel malts up front, along with floral hop. There’s some little orange citrus in the middle with dash of spiciness. Light-medium bodied. Carbontion is about medium.
Finish & Aftertaste:
Crisp hoppy finish with semi-sweet floral aftertaste.
Very good! A true American craft beer!

Light brown - caramel in colour; shows good depth. Surprisingly no nose to speak of. Excellent mouthfeel and flavour; strong malty notes, good length and ’strong’ flavour tones. Good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 oh snap, I forgot all about Sam Adams Boston Lager until now. Many times this past summer I was glad to see a few Sam Adams hiding around at parties/peoples houses to save me from B, M, and C.
