1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
I was really looking forward to this beer after reading all the fine reviews. It really looked good in the glass, nice color and good head. Then I smelled it. It smelled like paint. It tasted like a mixture of paint and soap. Now I know how they got the color and head, red paint and soap. Needless to say, I was very dissapointed. I did try another to see if it was just this bottle. Tasted the same. Gave the rest to my son in law.He said the same thing. Very dissappointed.

A beer that perked my interest when I started to "discover" beers. A friend of mine thinks this is the greatest beer in the world... and considers himself a beer connoisseur. Nothing really stands out about the Boston Lager to me. Goes great with hot dogs and brats (ha!).

The Noble hops varieties, Hallertau Mittelfruh and Tettnang Tettnanger, add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the flavor, to the lingering smooth finish.

Clear copper with a large light tan head that stays around for a while. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey. Light sweetness. Can’t exactly pinpoint flavors up front, but I get a hint of cherry on the back end? Haven’t seen anyone else say that so that might just be me. Decent carbonation. Goes down easy. Pretty refreshing beer. Not bad. Not great. Might be the best lager I’ve had so far though.

Poured cloudy gold/amber in color. light sweet smell. Straight forward malty taste with a hoppy finish. Very smooth tasting.

Nice amber colored beer with good head. A little bit of malty flavors but drinks smooth like a lager should. Pretty good mid level beer.

Sam Adams Boston Lager is the beer that launched the microbrew craze. As such, it deserves credit for its groundbreaking qualities. For many years now, other companies have copied and improved upon the Sam Adams recipe, and there is now a myriad of better beers available on the market. Be it known that this was once the greatest American beer, bar none. It represents my epiphany to full-bodied lagers, and it's still a great beer for a social gathering, considering most of your guests still drink that watered-down pilsener crap.

This is another beer that is good for what it is a more mass produced craft beer
