I was curious about this beer and in fact a few other Sam Adams for quite a while and was
regretting not having even tried it when I was in USA. By sheer luck, I spotted it in the
beer menu of "The Pump Room" (bar and bistro at Clarke Quay) and I bought it to go so as
to savour it at my own time and pleasure. The Boston lager has a light smell of hops that
is fairly aromatic and pours out a nice amber color with minimal head. This beer tastes
somewhat like a mix of a lager and an ale (reminds me of Brewerkz's steam beer) with a nice
taste from the hops and most importantly a strong and pleasant malty taste. The after taste
is also hugely malty and lingering. This beer is also very smooth and drinkable. On the
whole, nice hop character, great malt character and definitely a good beer that I would
constantly keep on my order list. Hoping to try the other Sam Adams though.
