Sam Adams Boston Ale

Having been taken to the proverbial beer shed due to lack of postings I’ll try to do better. I’m better at tasting than typing.

Beer temp. 50.9F. Pours light amber with a thin head. Caramel aroma, definite pronounced caramel malts come through first and as it fades the hops take over. Hops really work on the back of the tongue and then coat the whole mouth. It has a rich mouth feel. The caramel malts live up to their billing and seem to balance the bitterness of the hops. Later pours gave a little better head with an off white color but it still didn’t hold well. Caramel and bitter hops were all I could detect, no undertones of anything else.

This is the fourth S.A. product I’ve tried and the best of the lot but I don’t think I’ll buy it again. This isn’t a nothing beer. It started as a 2 and ended as a 3 and I’ll give them an extra bonus point cause ” They Got Stones”.

Sam Adams Boston Ale Rating: 4 out of 10 (?)
