MINI-REVIEW--Samuel Adams Boston Lager

We recently picked up a Sam Adams Winter Classics variety 12-pack and we'll be reviewing the various beers as we make our way. First up is the ubiquitous Boston Lager which comes in at 4.75% ABV and pours a golden slightly orange color with a white head. A scent of hops with a bit of citrus greets our nose. This is a rock solid beer with a good balance of malts and hops and a grain backbone. If you're ever out and about and your only options seem to be Macros, take heart, as Sam Adams Boston Lager is usually right there giving you a great choice!

We're going to give this 3.5 out of 5 stars as many times we've run into situations where this was the only option, and the Boston Beer Company's flagship brew saved us!
