3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sam Adams products have always been my fav main stream beer. I can pick them up at any local store around here and they are a decent price.
I poured this from a bottle, into a pint glass. Nice amber apperance. It has a very nice dark flavor. A hard bite followed by a smooth after taste. I think the taste is better once it starts to warm, but I’m wierd.
I would recommend any SA products to any level of beer lover.

Pours a copper brown in color with a short head. A little skunky in scent. Strong hop taste with an alcohol finish. Good if you like bitter lagers.

I think everyone at this site has tried a Sam Adams Boston Lager, no need for unnessasary details.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. This was recommended to me by Pintley but I’m not sure why. Without a doubt the best U.S. lager I’ve had - but that is saying very very little. Had that distinctly lager aroma, sort of clean, crisp slightly sulphurous, hint of hops. Taste was pleasantly malty in an unassuming kind of way. Some hop bitterness but not much flavour, after all the gushing about noble hops was expecting a little more. Then again this wee bottle has come a long way and hop flavour does fade. I’m not sorry I tried this but I wouldn’t buy another one.

Pours a rich and clear amber with a medium off-white heat, heavy lacing. The aroma is floral and of citrus, caramel. Taste is moderate to heavy sweetness with a medium level of bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation, smooth finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in pint glass. Medium-Dark amber color, 4fin of tall foamy bubbly khaki head. Smells of floral hops,
Tastes of hops and oak barrel. Old timey and old-towny, smooth with bitter finish. Pretty good balance of hops, which I always think is a fine quality in a standard brew.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma - citrus & hops
Appearance - Honey in colour, very light head
Taste - carbonated, spice, pine, alcohol
Overall - I have had this a few years ago on tap and I am sure that it tasted better. I saw this in a supermarket in the UK so bought a bottle. I don’t think I am really a lager fan so I maybe not the best person to judge this. To me its just ok better than a lot of lager but I would not rush out to find another bottle.

I like Sam Addams. It’s one of the better beers widely drank up here in Massachusetts.
