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

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-.

I think Sam Adams has some decent seasonals, and I greatly admire the brewer who started the company, but this is swill. I must say that there is a reason most beer only uses so many hops, and thats because they can be overwhelming if used improperly (much like garlic). The beer looks like it might be tasty, but it is honestly hard for me to drink.

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.

Bottle imported. Pours rich gold with good foamy heady. Aroma is hoppy, flavour is very malty with distinctive dry hops in the back, balance is very nice. Decent beer, will try it again.

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

My first Samuel Adamns beer I ever tried, needless to say I was impressed. An above average lager with a complex full taste.

kinda bitter with that battery acid taste, similiar to sierra nevada. Alot better then most other american beers but that not saying much.

A nice beer all around, but it may be to bland for some. Everything is balanced out quite nicely, which takes some of the fun out of drinking. In any event, it's a good "safety" when there isn't anything else whetting on the menu.
