Samuel Adams Boston Ale (Stock Ale)

Part of a mixed six pack (2 Hefe, 2 Cream Stout, 2 Boston Ale) from Sam Adams @ 7.49, Publix Supermarkets, Villa Rica, GA, USA.

Really very nice. I was expecting little, but got much more.

A very attractive light amber/orange pour with a white rocky head. Some good lacing. The carbonation is lively. Extremely refreshing with an excellent balance of hops and malt. The hops are exactly as I like them, under-stated but evident.

This is a clean drink, as refreshing as a light “lawnmower” adjunct lager, but obviously much tastier and of a distinctly higher quality.

Certainly worth a visit and some consideration even if you don’t expect a lot from Sam. This would be a really nice place to start macro drinkers on the road to BA enlightenment. A simple, drinkable, tastier, American beer that wouldn’t frighten them too much. Go spread the word!
