Sam Adams Boston Lager

Samuel Adams Boston Lager is probably my favourite American beer and I get excited when I see it offered on tap, even if it is offered at a high price. So I was surprised when searching TFTBT archives that I’ve never reviewed it here.

The beer pours a beautiful orange-amber colour with a thick creamy head. The aroma has hoppiness and citrus notes. The taste has light, slightly bitter citrus flavour mixed with creamy maltiness and a touch of honey. The finish has a really nice balance of hops and mild bitterness. On the recommended list for widely available American beer, even if it’s not “discount brand.” Ask for it next time you’re at Consumers Beverages. This week a 12-pack is $14.99. Also a 12-pack of bottles Guinness is $8.99 after the mail-in rebate (I joke not. A mail-in rebate for beer).
