Straight from the Keg this beer was fresh and fited well in my dorm room. I spent a fine weekend in a drunken stuper with this stuff. opiate (199) - Sandy, Utah, USA - NOV 16, 2000
This is one of my favorite, if not my absolute favorite, standard ales.
Mostly because there’s nothing ’standard’ about it. This beer just defines ’beer’ for me.
It’s that middle of the road, not a stout, not a pilsner type of beer. Just a perfect balance.
The nose on this beer should be made into a womens perfume. (Assuming women really want to attract men!)
Anyway...a great gateway beer. Have your Budmilloors loving friends try this, it’s sure to get them into

Great beer for any occasion, the flavor is strong yet crisp. One of a kind! Odyn (266) - New York, USA - MAY 16, 2008
This is easily one of favorite of the Sam Adams line. It has good solid body just like the Boston lager, but without the hoppiness.

Nice white head over a copper colored beer. Spicy nose. very malty and sweet and fruity but well balanced with hops to prevent cloying. Good beer Boston BC. run20six2 (123) - USA - MAR 7, 2004
Very good beer. Has some nice aroma and very full bodied. Pretty cheap as well DeadGuyFrank (347) - http://westchesterbeer.com, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Complex is a word that gets thrown around a lot in beer and wine reviews. Although Boston Ale is certainly complex it is very tasty and very enjoyable - beer geeks aside. Everytime I bring this somewhere occasional beer drinkers say, "wow what is that?" and then they smile. I know of no better complement. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Always a good choice. The Boston Ale has a golden amber color with good clarity and carbonation. It forms a thick off white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Its aroma is malty sweet with a hint of honey and floral hops. On the tongue the malts are bready and lightly toasty. The hops are light and have a nice piney and citrus bitterness that fades slowly into the finish. I really like the balance on this ale and I fined it to be very drinkable and refreshing. Cheers!
