COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boston has a long, rich history of brewing. By the late 1800s, over 30 breweries existed inside Boston's city limits, making it one of America's largest brewing hubs. Inspired by Boston's brewing glory days, Samuel Adams Boston Brick Red has a distinct caramel flavor from pale and caramel malts, and a deep red color reminiscent of the historic red brick at the Samuel Adams Boston brewery. This one of a kind beer has historically only been found on tap in Boston, making it impossible to take home this piece of the city's brewing history.... Until now. Cheers!

another middle of the road beer from sam adams, no real distinction behind this one, just a bland macro tasting beer thats a little amber in color.

On tap at the historic Green Dragon pub in Boston. Pours a clear amber/red with a substantial off white head. Taste is rich sweet toasted maltiness along with caramel and butter. Not too hoppy. Goes down easy; very refreshing. A good session ale. A little like a milder version of Boston Ale.

Pretty standard ale. It’s almost like they used the same recipe in Boston lager but changed it out for ale yeast. Tasty, but not memorable.

A big fan of Sam Adams, I find this falls short. Nice coloring, but little flavor. Seemed like a darker, watered down version of Boston lager.

Tap - Probably the best Irish Ale I’ve had, but that isn’t saying much. Some malt, hops in the middle, and a little sweet at the end. Flavors were muted, beer tasted fresh.

From tap at Sunset Grill. Pours dark orange to amber with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity, caramelish and slight butterish. Bitter, roasted malty and sweet - slight fruity flavoured. Bitter and malty finish.

I’ve always found "Irish Red" ales and lagers to be a bit bland but Sam Adam’s does it again, I really liked this. Had a nice malty smell and drank very smooth and had kind of a sweet aftertaste, very tasty . Brick Red is the perfect description of the color because it was a deep, dark amber/red color. I really hope this gets marketed and is in stores, it’d be one I’d pick up on occasion that’s for sure. It went really well with the buffalo wings I had.

Draft. Pours a lear reddish brown with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet, a littly syrupy, with some cherry notes. Flavor is malty, a bit sweet. Long, lingering sweet finish. Fairly hoppy.
