I find sam adams to be rather inconsistent. When I get a good bottle it is quite drinkable, but can also be rather poor.

Definitely a pleasant surprise. Sweeter than I expected, almost a bit too sweet in the aftertaste.

this is one of the better beers to drink out there. there is a strong malt presence although the hops flavor is still readily detecable. there is a good aftertaste however it is slightly on the acidic side maybe a little charcoal flavor in the aftertaste. definitely a good beer when you can’t have a micro.

Bold, hoppy flavor. Slightly sweet and dry at the end. Golden color and nice white lace when finished. Great beer, best lager.

A darn good effort, although I have sampled some with a slightly metallic taste to it. May be a bit hoppy for some, but not overwhelmingly so. Cook a steak on the bar-b and enjoy.

Single bottle: watery lagger, good taste, hops mostly. Decent head. They seem to have this at bars everywhere, so I’m glad I tried it. Got less flavorful as it went along.

Good beer, fairly flavorful. I’m not overly impressed because I expected that this beer would be that good for what it’s worth.

Enjoyed from a bottle. Lovely amber colour, with a considerable head with good lacing. Bready malts and a hint of spruce from the hops gives a well rounded experience. Easy to drink, and is a favorite session beer.
