I gave Sam Adams Boston Lager a try a couple months ago and was surprised that it was so good. It has real flavor and body, unlike some other American brewed beers I tried when I was younger (I’m looking at you Bud).
I only drink beer for the taste, not to get wasted, so I try to be on the lookout for good, widely distributed beer. Sam Adams is probably my go-to beer when I’m out somewhere that isn’t a brewpub. It’s really good beer and I’d place it up there with any good Brown Ale or Stout I’ve had (yes, I know the styles are different!). Really glad to see some good brewing being done that’s widely available for those of us who don’t have a pub with 200 beers on tap.

Beer gets a bad rap from too many people because it is everywhere, not overly hoppy, and not high alcohol . However, like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, this is a classic and one of the few good beers you could find in the USA 15 years ago. It is well balanced, with both a slightly hoppy and malty smell and aroma. Crisp, clean, and a good everyday drinker.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark gold color with a finger width head that’s just off-white. Aroma of malt mostly, with a bit of hops. Flavor is sweet malt that carries into the finish. Good beer that’s safe as a "go to". Good beginner beer into the craft world.
