This is pretty good icey cold in a frosted mug. As it warms tho the carmel flavor seems off. Better than Bud or Miller anyday tho.

Samuel Adams Lager is vastly overrated and has a name recognition due to its big marketing effort, which goes to show you - if you spend enough money in promoting anything it will often come out looking great in the end. The nicest thing that I can say about Samuel Adams is that it is drinkable. Unremarkable taste, nice aroma and a bite you could do without. Yet some of my friends just love this beer, and love to be seen drinking it.

People just rave about this beer so I decided it was a must have...2 days later I was wishing I had never bought it. i’ll take it over bud, coors or miller anyday but that’s as far as I’ll go.

Carelessly poured, this stuff makes a head that you could use for sculpture. It’s an acceptable drink, a step or two above the BIG breweries’ lagers... but nothing exceptional. It’s a good companion to a restaurant meal.

Back when this first came out and it was the yuppie beer of choice as a psuedo micro I never could figure out why. It must have been the limited choices. To me this is an overrated lager just a step above the macros. If I drink anything from Sams it is likely a seasonal or the ale.

decent aroma of caramel malt and light european hops. better-than-average lager appearance, nice amber. very drinkable, very caramely and a little bitterness mixed in.
