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!

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2010 Appearance:
Deep amber color, clear. Lots of nice carbonation. Head looks very creamy, lacing looks great on the glass.
Sweet caramel malts, floral hops, hint of citrus.

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.

When there is nothing else available there is always Sam Adams. A hearty lager witha nice golden brown color and a hoppy aroma. I nice lager after a long day. Not all that refreshing and not a summer time beer.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 The widely-available Sam Adams has saved many an evening when no favorite craft brews were on hand, being about as good as it gets in the average supermarket (or in the macro-market, for that matter). Overall, a very good, malty lager.

Flavourful, hearty lager. Moderate head, good finish. Slight coffee, heavy caramel making for a sweet initial impression. Very good for what is now a macro.
