I enjoy Boston lager. It's not my top choice but it's a nice flavorful option at places that only have bmc and the sort.

Iv'e been a beer drinker all my life and i can honestly say It was a Boston Lager draft, on a bet from a buddy, that turned me from canned Budweiser in the fridge into buying my first keggorator just so I could experience what I tasted that night in my own home whenever I wanted....haven't looked back since.

I love the variety that Sam Adams brings to the table - their Boston Ale has always been a favorite of mine.

A small complaint is that they tackle a ton of styles and interesting takes but rarely use different yeasts - from what I can tell they basically have a lager yeast and an ale yeast and that's it.

I like their Barrel Room collection beers. I had the Belgian Stout and their Red. The Tasman Red and its accompanying IPA are good, too. And the Imperial series is very reasonably priced. I've had the Triple Bock, but I hope to try the Utopias one day. I think it's a great brewery.

The first real good beer I ever drank was a Sam Adams Boston Ale.. I still remember the night, my friends who were there, etc. I haven't kept up with all of their offerings, but I pick up a 6 pack every once in awhile of whatever toots my horn.

I like their imperial stout. The white is good to. Wouldn't get a six pack of their other stuff tho, when there is always new Belgian brewing. Sorry for being the first negative person.

Hey! The gas station next to my house was selling borderline expired Sam Adams Boston Lager at 50cents a bottle. I mainly got them for the bottles, but i defiantly enjoyed them A lot more than my last fresh Boston lager. It's hard to say, my brew taste buds seem to change a lot nowadays.

I will say I didn't care at all for their Imperial White, but they can't all be ballads, Julian!

Sam is hit or miss for me. THey're hardly my go to, but if you're going to a party and want to contribute to a group beer hard to go wrong with sam. Some opinions of the beers of theirs I've had

1. Lager - A solid Lager, certainly way better than BMC, but also way worse than Brooklyn's to name another one that's easy for me to get.

2. Lattitude IPAs - Some were big hits, some were big misses. I enjoy the one they released for this year, thought it was solid.

3. Cherry Wheat - Solid light beer

4. Winter Lager - Maybe my favorite Lager of theirs

5. Octoberfest - Solid

6. Summer Ale - Not the biggest fan, but sometimes its the best thing on the menu.

7. Old Fezziwig's - Not bad at all, good for the season

8. Cranberry Lambic- Yuck. Doesn't do it for me at all. I'll admit I'm not a huge wild beer fan in the first place, but that's probably my least favorite Lambic.
