In this beer blog, we are going into sample Boston Ale from Samuel Adams. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this east coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Boston Beer Company. Let us get into this English style Pale Ale.
It has a nice bronze color with a white constant head. The aroma has a malty to caramel notes. The taste has a nice sweet malty with a hint of caramel. The aftertaste has a dry to slight caramel finish. It is a drinkable brew.
Here is a description from the beer bottle and website (www.samueladams.com):
When we opened our Boston Brewery in 1988, we created a special brew, Boston Ale, to mark the occasion. A “stock” ale with a distinctly American character, it’s spiced with English hops, sweetened with caramel malts, fermented as an ale and aged at cool temperatures.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, I am be the first to say I am not fan of Samuel Adams. I love how this brewery hides all their other projects like Twisted Tea, Angry Orchard, and Shandy Traveler. This brewery does make some good beers but the rest is below average to average. Their high-end beers are awesome in most cases. This brew I was pretty impressed. It is a nice English pale ale. There is a nice malty backbone with a nice hop selection. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
