Sam Adams Boston Lager Review (4/2/07)

Front Row Sports Bars Stroudsburg PA. Served in a chilled pint glass (why must they do this at sports bars) to a steady one inch head. Color was of a light iced tea character. The flavor was roasty-toasty with malt and a pleasant subtle hoppiness. There was also a slight orangey-citrusy flavor reminiscent of Flying Fish ESB along with an almost west coast brightness to it. I was very surprised and pleased as I don’t recall having had a Sam in ages (maybe 15 years). This is still quality brewing IMHO but I still find it hard to believe that this is a lager with the orange and roasted notes so prevalent. I don't recall picking up this much from Sam when I was younger. I'm pretty sure that the answer is that I've changed and not the beer.
