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!

I had this on a recent trip to Boston after a tour of the Samuel Adams brewery. I really enjoyed this beer and I think it is one of SA’s best brews. I only wish it was available outside of Boston.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The color is a deep red with an amber tint. Has some slight white foamy head, some nice lacing as well. The smell is light, a mix of caramel and some roasted malts. The taste is of roasted malt, somewhat like a good porter. Some strong caramel and brown sugar flavor. Is a bit creamy as well This beer has a great feel to it, with a nice refreshing. crsip taste. It goes down easy and is pretty darn smooth.

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.

A deeper more tasty version of Samuel Adams Irish Red. Mild head with rich spice aroma and felt heavily carbonated. Dark ruby red color. Had a mildly sweet and dry finish. Would have again no problem.

Pours a clear copper with a thick buff head that leaves generous lacing. Malty aroma has notes of caramel and cloves. Spice - cloves and a little cinnamon - dominate the flavor, but let through malty and caramel notes. Texture is about average, but still acceptable. Get your brick on with a good red ale!

Reviewed from notes. This was on tap and poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice gentle dark red color with a thin half finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds leaving a nice slightly foamy clingy lacing. The aroma had a nice nutty to caramel smell that was fairly enticing and rich. The taste was moderately sweet but still had a nice roasted nuttiness about it. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it. Also, there’s a nice rich creamy sort of feel running over my tongue. Overall, this was a pretty good Irish Red ale well worthy of having again. I think it would be beneficial to Sam Adams if they started bottling this one.
