This week's Sunday Night Suds pays respect to the brave people of Boston and reviews Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
I realized a few months ago that although I have reviewed thirty seven different varieties of Samuel Adams, I had never reviewed the Samuel Adams Boston Lager. At the time, I thought about saving this for this year's Fourth of July post, but after observing how proudly the people of Boston soldiered through the horrific events of the last week, I decided to offer a small tribute to the City of Boston by reviewing the Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
The Boston Lager is the flagship brew for the Boston Beer company. It can be found in most of the seasonal mix boxes that Samuel Adams produces, including the new Beers of Summer box. It also is available in six and twelve packs of its own and can be found on tap (the best way to enjoy it!).
The Boston Lager pours a rich orange color, which is typical of a Vienna style lager. The beer has a significant amount of sticky foam which adhered to the glass for more than half an hour after I poured the beer. The first taste of the beer is pure malt and the caramel note stays with you long after you have swallowed the brew. There is also a small influence of hops that gets picked up in the aftertaste, but it is not all that prominent.
The Boston Lager is a versatile beer that can go with anything from charred meat to pizza or even hero sandwiches. I have yet to experience a meat meal which clashed with Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
The Samuel Adams Boston Lager is under the Kosher Supervision of the Star-K and has a Star-K certification mark on the label. To see what the experts on Beer Advocate think about this brew, please follow this link - http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/35/104.
