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

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, amber-orange with a frothy white head that lasts a long time. Aromas of citrus, grass, and hay. Taste is a bit bitter with a metallic "tinge" to it. It’s medium-bodied with a lightly creamy texture. Finish is on the dry side with a hint of orange. Carbonation is average.
In my book, this one is nothing special, yet it’s good enough that I would drink it again. Pleasing, but not outstanding.

On tap at a dodger game in LA. Aroma was slight hoppiness with some citrus background. Had a great, crisp bite to it with a medium body of malt flavoring. Washed it down with my all-beef dodger dog so it wasn’t that bad but a great staple in the lager world!

UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 You can’t find a better lager out there than Sam Adams. This brew boasts experience and perfection in nearly every aspect of brewing. The aroma is a beautiful mixture of spices, malt, and caramel. The appearance is a stunning amber/chocolate color. The flavor is complex and developed: great texture, hops, and undertones of caramel will please your palate. The aftertaste is enjoyable, but it won’t last long, because your next sip will interrupt it!

I enjoy this beer. For lagers, this has tons of taste. You can really taste the hops in this beer. Not my favorite, but close for my favorite lagers.

Bottle. Dark gold body and nice small head. One of the best easily accessible lagers.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Not bad for a beer you can get just about anywhere. Doesnt look or smell breathtaking, but some acceptable flavor is there.

This beer could simply not impress me after a Boston ale. It has a OK creamy head, but it disapears rater quickly. Disapointing aroma. The taste is to plain and is slightly metalic. Weak finish...
