Starting with appearance, this lager has an orange- colored, cloudy, unfiltered body, a nice amount of fluffy white foam that tends to stick around, and a nose that reminds me of blueberry cereal. There are some other fruits lingering in the background, but the scent of blueberries dominates.

Blueberry Hill Lager is a fruity beer and, as expected, the taste of blueberries dominates. But there are other flavors going on here, flavors such as light citrus, honey, and lightly toasted malt. Bitterness is subdued and fruitiness shines through, even though still malty enough to taste the way a beer should.

This beer has a creamy mouthfeel and while not the best balanced fruit beer I have ever tried, it is still good enough to earn a passing mark. It does seem like a good summertime brew and it’s a nice addition to the Samuel Adams 12- pack summer sampler.

Hazy dull orange body, topped by three fingers of white foam. Drippy lace bits.

Assertive, pleasant, not overly aggressive blueberry aroma.

Tastes like a soft helles or export lager, with a pleasant dash of blueberries.

Smooth mouthfeel.

Do not come to this expecting Boston Lager in a fifty/fifty mix with blueberry juice. There is a lot less malt, a whole lot less hops, and the blueberries are well balanced. It's a nice summer quaffer, but not something I'd load up on.
