Samuel Adams Boston Lager

WELCOME! Beer is something we’ve often had in the Buffalo Lounge, but we never really got around to reviewing it in favor of spirits. So we began with an initial set of reviewing beers around the world. These have been broken into smaller articles. Now you may noticed a format similar to our spirit reviews – in the future beers will just have a short paragraph and an overall/reviewer score.


So we begin our tour in our hometown. America. Specifically the Boston Area, because as a baseline we’ve reviewed Samuel Adams Boston Lager. What we found here surprised no one. Sam Adams is a good above average beer, and unlike Budweiser, Natty Ice, or any “Light” beer is not piss-water. Since Bostoners always have something to say “Our original beer, brewed with Bavarian Noble hops the balance of malty sweetness and hop spiciness in this brew sets the standard for all Samuel Adam’s beers.”


Taste:  6.07 – Enjoy the taste of Boston Lager, not great, but definitely above average

Aftertaste: 5.97 – Little bitter feel of hops.

Aroma: 6 – Smells pretty good, but average overall.

Manliness: 6.57 – It is Sam Adams so PATRIOTISM! Notch on the expiration date is pretty nice.

Value: 6.64

Google Shop Average: $1 for a 12 oz
