Samuel Adams Boston lager – the review

Boston-Lager-body-label

So we take a break from Australia this time around to take a look at the craft lager that could, this review will focus on Samuel Adams Boston lager a lager that grew from obscurity and became one of america most popular craft beers but has that success gone to the beers head? sadly i cant comment on what Samuel Adams used to be but this failed to deliver on all levels for me.

Look:
the beer was a very dark golden brown with a small white head that dissipated very quickly. i know it may sound like a very strange comment to make about a lager but this was very thick in the mouth, it was also very cloudy, so thick and cloudy sounds like a great pale ale, i know right, sadly it failed to deliver as a lager should be smooth and go down like water.it was also very dark in comparison to other lagers.

3/10

Aroma
This was not a very special, it had a somewhat spoilt smell that had a very present bitterness, needless to say i did not enjoy it.

2/10

Taste
the Horrid bitterness appeared to be ever present throughout this beer. Every mouthful of this beer burned with it, it seemed to take my tastebuds with it as i swallowed. now some of you are going to comment Saying i had a bad bottle but I’ve had a few of these just to make sure. sadly nothing redeeming here.

2/10

Value
no matter how much i paid for this i would have still paid too much.

1/10

Conclusion
I’m going to keep this brief, in this humble reviewers opinion avoid at all cost, they’re are far better beers out there.

20/100
