Best Uses
When out with friends
Comment:
This is not my favorite beer. That's Harpoon IPA. But I have found Sam Adams Boston Lager to be widely available and for me often the best beer in the bar. Craft beer lovers will appreciate its taste and substance. Nice amber color. So I appreciate it being there for me. Have drunk it all around Central NY and on Cruise Ships.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I was surprised at how much this tastes like a dark beer, with heavy, pretzely, cigarish flavors I didn't care for. Heavy, filling. Not refreshing. Maybe good for cold winter nights at the bar, but not an everyday beer or summer beer at all.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
