Easy to drink bold flavored beer. This was the beer that took me away from standard American beers!

Bold malt with mild hop aromas, well balanced.

As a craft beer legend Samuel Adams Boston Lager, keeps it strong, smooth and simple. Far greater than American Standard beers, straight forward craft brew!
