From a bottle. Very heavy in flavor like they claim. Bitter taste but not overly obnoxious and extremely hoppy. Dark amber color and keeps a great head. I get fruity tastes once in a while on my taste buds.

Finally a great lager!Arousing aroma and refreshing taste and a foam that stays!Absolutely great beer,although,as any lager the pate was not something exceptional.Totally refreshing anyway,surprised me.

My favorite beer of all time. This beer started it all. It is just awesome. The flavor is very unique and enjoyable. Very smooth. The well balanced use of hops and malts create an attractive candy feel. This beer gets better as it warms because all the flavors seem to come out in a breathtaking encore. If you have never had any Sam Adams yet, try the Boston Lager first!

I always seem to enjoy this one. Probably one of the best lagers that I can get in these parts. Taste has some bite. No too hoppy which is good.

Full malt body which is complemented by the mild hop finish. One of the greatest of go-to beers when you’re undecided at the liquor store or bar.

She is an orange amber in color...she gives good head and leaves lots of lace. She has a hoppy flavored snatch with a mild finish. Solid.

Had a robust hops, and malts aroma. Not a bad lager. Not my favorite beer though. Sticking with the ales, and pilsners.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2003 a nice beer but nothing extraordinary. this beer offers some interesting points to me because it is somewhere between pisswaters and , i guess you can call em, real beers. its like a good handjob; it's better than your hand, but it leaves you craving the real thing. i like it though. a step in the right direction.
rerate: this is much better on draft. much more stout and tastes more like a real beer. had to give her a few more points

Sam Adams is a great alternative to "lawnmower" beer, since it's available anywhere, though it has flavor.
