Sam Adams products have always been my fav main stream beer. I can pick them up at any local store around here and they are a decent price.
I poured this from a bottle, into a pint glass. Nice amber apperance. It has a very nice dark flavor. A hard bite followed by a smooth after taste. I think the taste is better once it starts to warm, but I’m wierd.
I would recommend any SA products to any level of beer lover. Eells (64) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2010
I think everyone at this site has tried a Sam Adams Boston Lager, no need for unnessasary details. Vas (64) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 31, 2011
12 oz bottle. This was recommended to me by Pintley but I’m not sure why. Without a doubt the best U.S. lager I’ve had - but that is saying very very little. Had that distinctly lager aroma, sort of clean, crisp slightly sulphurous, hint of hops. Taste was pleasantly malty in an unassuming kind of way. Some hop bitterness but not much flavour, after all the gushing about noble hops was expecting a little more. Then again this wee bottle has come a long way and hop flavour does fade. I’m not sorry I tried this but I wouldn’t buy another one. Namespayne (64) - - DEC 3, 2014
12oz bottle in pint glass. Medium-Dark amber color, 4fin of tall foamy bubbly khaki head. Smells of floral hops,
Tastes of hops and oak barrel. Old timey and old-towny, smooth with bitter finish. Pretty good balance of hops, which I always think is a fine quality in a standard brew.

June 26, 2011;4.8% abv; draught in 20 oz branded glass at Harbour Grille, Toronto.
Light flowery and fruity hop aromas with some caramel malts. Poured clear with a dark golden colour. A beautiful pillowly head of 1.5" with light visible carbonation. Looks tasty. Grapefruit and light bitterness, with caramely malts up front. Quite surprising for me. Bitterness leads to a slightly sour aftertaste. A refreshing carbonation yet fuller and smoother body similar to that of an ale. Finish is slightly astringent. A lot more hops aroma and taste than I would expect from anything called a lager. Better tasting than my meal.

My go to beer, if nothing else is really available I always go for this one. Taste is mostly roasty and a bit of spice I think. This beer will always have a place in my heart. alexcandy (63) - Whitstable, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2011
Aroma - citrus & hops
Appearance - Honey in colour, very light head
Taste - carbonated, spice, pine, alcohol
Overall - I have had this a few years ago on tap and I am sure that it tasted better. I saw this in a supermarket in the UK so bought a bottle. I don’t think I am really a lager fan so I maybe not the best person to judge this. To me its just ok better than a lot of lager but I would not rush out to find another bottle.

I like Sam Addams. It’s one of the better beers widely drank up here in Massachusetts.
