Amazing example of a true American Beer. This is an excellent beer, which thank the lord, because it's a go to beer when the only other beers carried at bars/restaurants are bud and bid light.

I think this is my favourite USA beer. Sadly, this is the only type I’ve tasted from the Samuel Adams family. It has an intense smell, like wood, coffee and citrus. It has a full body, very complex with a great taste (like orange peel). I like its deep brown color, very foamy. I just hope to taste more beers from the S.A. familiy to make comparisons.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 No matter how many years later and all the new craft beers Sam Adams Boston lager always tastes good. Excellent balance, session able, great alone or with food. Always good on tap a widely available go to beer.

This is a great american beer that is readly available throughout the U.S in bottle or draft. I believe the draft is smoother. Great amber color with a rich flavor. This beer is a good one to keep on hand when having people over.

One of my three favorite beers. It looks wonderful as tastes almost as good as it looks (I admit to favoring slightly bitter beers). Not quite the equal of my all-time favorite, Leinenkugel’s Northwoods Lager, but it’s right up there with Crooked River’s ESB.

Hands down my favorite beer to drink on a regular basis. I just can seem to get past it when I’m pushing my cart through the walk-in cooler at the grocery store. I always drink this one from a pint glass to savor the aroma.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Samuel Adams Boston Lager
24 oz bottle
Recent bottling, appreciated 09/06
Medium pour in a pilsner glass
Poured copper bronze with a 1/2 white mostly diminishing white frothy head.
Smelt of dark bready malts and soft citrus hops.
Taste was upfront medium piney bitter hops and very slightly citrusy as well, with the follow through a bit like sweet dark bread melding with the remaining bitter hoppiness for a pleasant lingering finish. Mouthfeel was medium and dry with lively carbonation.
Overall, in my humble opinion, the best mass-marketed lager on the american market, an serves as a great entry point to the world of beer to the unitiated cheap american pilsner drinkers.

A great beer, but I initially overrated it.
While they taste ’good’, they have too much of a ’medicine’ taste or microbrew taste to them that makes it a bit unnatural, good toffee flavored beer though, color is described well, it is quite original but is not a staple in a drinkers diet, just an occassional beer, too ’mediciny’ to drink very often.
