Samuel Adams Black Lager
78Tasty and mellow with plenty of dark malt flavours yet little of the associated bitterness.
Samuel Adams Boston Lager
83Refreshing, tasty lager in the darker Vienna style. One of the pioneering beers in the US craft brewing revolution, now a national brand.
Samuel Adams Holiday Porter
Refreshing, winey taste. Lots of roasted malt character yet a light and medium body. Very drinkable. Chocolate dominates the aftertaste.
Samuel Adams Imperial White Ale
Hazy amber colour... Solvent, some fruit esters... Orange, coriander and sugary malt... Very sweet and very strong... Pleasant fruit aftertaste... Almost like a wine or a spirit... Incredibly full bod...
Samuel Adams White Ale
Great aroma of coriander, wheat and butter. Typical phenolic nose with complex aniseedy notes, dry palate reflecting closely the nose with a touch of citrus and spices added.
