1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(on bottle) A dark orange brew with a sweet yeasty sent. Creamy mouth with very strong flavors of peach. Very much peach infact. No hopping at all in the fin ish. Soft, uninteresting beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper color, rocky white head that does a bit of lacing, sweet malty aroma with some lemon zest, tart malt flavor with some citrus noyes and a slightly bitter hop finish, water palate, not the worst lager I’ve had but certainly not the best

I am surprised this beer ranks so highly. To me it tasted of baked beans, maybe I got a bad batch. Looking to eventually re-rate.

This beer could simply not impress me after a Boston ale. It has a OK creamy head, but it disapears rater quickly. Disapointing aroma. The taste is to plain and is slightly metalic. Weak finish...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A high quality lager, half-dark in colour (deep golden, orange, reddish) with strong aroma of caramel. Full-bodied, malty with light background of hops and spices.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Cafe Blue Fish, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Disappearing white head, clear orange body. Nice and sweet hoppy, flowery and creamy aroma with toffee tones. Very flavorfull for a lager. Mostly hoppy with malty, fruity and a good spicy tone. An excellent lager.

One of the better lagers, way ahead of bud and miller. Some citrus in the start of the aroma, flavor crispy, ceraels.

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.
