Beer Tasting: Samuel Adams Boston Lager

Samuel Adams Boston Lager, the unofficial airport beer of the United States (ha!), typically finds its way into our house as a decent "standby beer" for those guests who are not so curious about "craftier beers." But, seriously, I don't knock Sam. It's still a respectable brewery that turns out consistently solid brews. I've dipped my hand into a few of these Sammys lately as the weather has cooled. Quite the leaf collecting beer. Bryan's Notes:
  • Pale, golden color
  • Creamy head disappears soon to a thin layer
  • Sweet and rich malty nose
  • Moderate carbonation keeps this solid, flavorful beer alive on the tongue and roof of mouth

Adam's Notes: (added on 12/30/2006)

  • 1 inch head dissapating to 1/4 inch
  • nutty lager nose
  • no sulfer notes :-)
  • orangish amber
  • malty lager like a Maibock, but, drier
  • subtle and complex hops flavor
  • this beer would go well with a variety of food
  • caramel flavors come out as it warms
