I like the ale better, but this is still a good crossover beer. Not bad when it's ice cold.

alright we've all had this a hundred times when you go to the bar/restaurant and they have a terrible selection and samuale adams. amber hue. good hop aroms follow through on a toasty, medium palate. with aromatic hop finish. seems like the recipe has changed over the years to me. i dont know what class this is in amber, its pretty good for a macro.

Pale golden with thick white head and lacing.Looks like another macro-swill, but surprise, it has nice hop and malt aroma. Good hop bitterness with some malt sweetness, but this is a little thin-bodied and gets watery after a while.Depending where your Sam Adams Boston Lager came from, it may not be that good. But this is a good step away from the bland macros, but this is a little expensive.

This lager pours a orange colour with a frothy white head.
Very metallic scent to it. Doughy scents to the nose along with some malts. Initial taste is a little watery but then kicks in with a sharp taste of hops and malt. The palate is a little bitter with a strong hop flavour.

Certainly better than any other mass-produced lager. Nice crisp taste, with slight bitterness.

Decent for a Lager. Easy to find and doesnt fail. Better than most other lagers. Not much more to say about it.

Turn on Friends and chug it! But seriously, don't. Very ordinary American lager. Ordinary in beer just doesn't cut it.

The appearance and smell of this beer are better than its taste and drinkability. So far, I have not been impressed with a single Samuel Adams beer, finding them to be quite plain and/or average, this beer included. It's got a nice amber color, and decent smell, but a very ordianry taste that I cannot see myself yearning for.
