UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Review: Bottle of Samuel Adams Lager 4.90%ABV
I was eager to try Samuel Adams, a beer that has a good reputation, an American craft beer classic. Comes in a lovely looking bottle, so lets have a look at what this Boston beer is all about.
The appearance is great. It pours a nice dark golden colour with a good sized frothy head that hangs around a while leaving decent lacing. It has the look of a real beer, cant wait to drink it while standing back and admiring the froth.
I got a faint smell of malts and a bit of floral hops. The smell was pleasant and not overbearing.
The Samuel Adams taste had a variety of strong flavours from the hops and malt which were well balanced, all tingling away at my taste buds. Caramel was one taste that stood out. The finish is strong with a long lasting heavy aftertaste. Overall a nice solid beer. and a great delicious taste. Samuel Adams is a beer that you will remember.

355 ml bottle.Now Its in Turkey, thanks for the efforts of Efes Brewery. Dark yellow colour like copper and fuzzy white head. Great caramel smell on nose with strong and intensive malty taste. Better to drink with fresh fruits or salty snacks.

draft that poured a reddish copper color with eggshell white head. decent lacing on the glass. sometimes you just cant always get the proper glassware. the aroma was medium malt base and some hops. nothing offensive at all. the flavor is just so for me I know this is a great representation of the style but leaves me wanting more. a little caramel in the flavor along with the mildness of the hops. decent beer.
