Man I like this beer. Even though this stuff is moving into the mass produced arena, Boston Beer has stayed true to the original. Very consistently good beer from the tap or in the bottle. Nice ever-so-slightly bitter front end with a sweet palatability to it. Pretty dry on the aftertaste. This is a good beer, and it is now widely available.

Come on...this is like the all American beer, look at his outfit on the bottle, it screams PILGRAM! Whatever, if you don't like being patriotic, especially at this time in our countries history thats your thing, just make sure you don't mess with me. That is while I'm drinking SAMUEL ADAMS, cause its the shiznit, BITCH!

Samuel Adams Lager is vastly overrated and has a name recognition due to its big marketing effort, which goes to show you - if you spend enough money in promoting anything it will often come out looking great in the end. The nicest thing that I can say about Samuel Adams is that it is drinkable. Unremarkable taste, nice aroma and a bite you could do without. Yet some of my friends just love this beer, and love to be seen drinking it.

O.K. if there’s nothing else available. Thin, tasteless, boring. Hardly any hops at all, thin head.

This is a great lager. If someone doesn’t like it, they probably wanted a stout. This beer is also not an IPA with suttle aromas. This is a solid lager with a good head and somewhat creamy texture. There is a hop after taste, but it is not bitter. If it comes out of the tap flat , send it back.

A nice golden color with good carbenation and a white head. Has a hops smell and a nice bitter hops taste to it.

What a great beer. Maybe not the upper eschelon, it is certainly the "old reliable." A richer color than any macro-brewed light lager, and even more so than the macro-premium lagers. Nothing groundbreaking, just yummy. More bitter than expected, but in a great way. Drink with pizza and wings, the tastes tame each other. Excellent.

Great American beer, little dry aftertaste is the only downside however still very drinkable.

My old lady really likes this stuff and ill drink it if she buys it. I find it to be a bit bland but tolerable.
