Hops hops hops! One of my favorite from Samuel Adams. I’ve had many, and will continue to drink these.

lets be honest, there are better beers out there, alot of better beers, but there are alot of worse beers. Went to a local bar that had this on tap tonight and decided perfect time for a review. Head about 1/4 inch which was gone seconds later. Slightly fruity aroma. I always notice the appealing amber color first! The taste was a little bitter but overall very smooth. Flavor was a little lacking, flat if you will. Its a decent larger but theres other i’d take any day over this. I think some of their seasonal brews are much stronger!

Best by 09-(presumably)03. What is it about this stuff? An incredibly schizophrenic juxtaposition of what may be Cascade and Saaz hops in a lager? Bland anoymous malts. Whatever the intent, this stuff always makes me pucker and I seldom have another.

Don't really know what all this beer is really about. It tastes like a average beer, but with a skunkier, sweeter taste that I did not like. It's the kind of beer Republicans probally drink while discussing "important things" at the nearby Red Lobster. Which I will have no part of

This beer is pretty good, but not the greatest beer from Boston Beer. The aroma is pretty nice with a subtle hop note that is balanced by the malts; the taste is much of the same. It pours a copper with a nice off-white head. Has an average mouthfeel and is crisp on its finish. Overall a good beer, but not the best. 3.0

Buona. Gusto deciso. Una lager ma ambrata. Amara al punto giusto. Schiuma morbida e persistente. Ottimo retrogusto. Consigliata.

Sam Adams exists for one reason in my life - to give me a beer to order in a restaurant chain that has a very limited selection. Nice clean lager that tastes like a beer not a macro-.

The Boston Lager is one of my favorite ’everyday’ beers to drink. I like the rich flavor and the minimally conflicting aftertaste.

Hint of hops. Fresh taste but not very complex. Has a lot of carbonation but not to much for a lager. Overall I don’t thin I will buy this again. Not exactly my style, but not for what it is.

Very nice beer and is widely available. Pours amber with nice hops flavor.
