I have to agree with Robert, although in a somewhat toned down manner.There are
lots of American beers that are not on this list, andhomebrewing in America is
huge. If Euro's or others had any sense orknowledge of history, they'd realize
how arrogant and stupid they areto say that Americans "can't" do anything. We
put a man on the moon,we rebuilt and protected Europe and Japan, we created and
pay for theU.N., and we can make anything we damn well please - with
quality,including some great beers you arrogant Euro stooges will never taste.

I'm not sure where I stand on this beer. It's very smooth with agreat scent,
head, and color. But like a few others said, too 'hoppedup'. It certainly is
unlike any other American beer I've ever had,though. More flavor, at least. It
just isn't a flavor I findappealing.My girlfriend's dad is a lover of beers from
all over the world (hewas drinking it all over Europe while in the Marines in
the 70's) andhe said it tasted like beer and fermadahide(sp?)... But it isn't
abad beer. Its worth giving a try.-=The Prynce

The reason Samuel Adams Boston Larger is Very Good is because: ittaste, its
color and how it is brewed is almost identical to RheingoldExtra Dry Beer was
from 1998 to 2002. Both beers have that CORN COBFLAVOR in which taste very
good. Both Beers have that DARK GOLD COLORin which is real nice. Also both
some other similarprocesses I cannot think of right now. Over a year in a half
of beingand still am extremely angry that the "BASTERDS" at the RheingoldBrewing
Company stoped brewing the Extra Dry Beer in late 2002 andstarted the New
Rheingold in early 2003 and just recently in mid 2004another Rheingold Beer
called 1883. Both the New Rheingold and the1883 Beers are "Inferior" compared
to the "Classic Rheingold - theExtra Dry" and therefor in translation, putting
Samuel Adams BostonLager Beer to be "Superior" compared to the new Rheingolds.
SamuelAdams Brewing Company has eight year round beers and six seasonalbeers.
The Rheingold Brewing Company only has two year round beersand no seasonal
beers. Why dont they make Rheingold Extra Dry a"Seasonal Beer" if any thing.
Anyway, thats why Samuel Adams BostonLager taste so good: "its almost -well hard
to say, but figure 60 to90 percent like the Classic Rheingold - the extra dry

By the way, if you were weened on "Bud" Skeeter, then Sam Adams isprobably out
of your league. Stick to "Buttwiper" and you will dofine. And yes I am making a
stereotype that most people in the U.S.that post comments on how shitty Sam
Adams is ARE PROBABLY from theSouth!

Sam Adams is in my opinion the best beer in America as far as aproduction beer
goes. Yes it is no longer a micro brew, I have beendrinking it since it was a
micro and I will say it has retained it'sgreat taste since it has become
"macro". There are a lot of actualmicro brews out there that deserve much kudos,
especially the onesthat you can sit amongst the brew pots and enjoy your pint!
As far asEuropean brews, Guiness, Newcastle and Bass are some of the finestbeers
we can purchase here in the states. Each with their own distinctand beautiful
taste. God I love beer.

The best Sam Adams you can get is poured from the tap. Their "Oktoberfest" and
"Winter Warmer" brews are really good if you're not afraid to try spicy beers.
The Boston Brewing company also serves up some good brews like "Old Fezzywig"
just before Chirstmas that will knock yoursocks off. They used to make a
"Porter" what was excellentbut didn't sell well enough to make it profitable.
Same thing with the "Scotch Ale". The reason Sam Adams has been able to make
such good beer is quality control. Respondents who have made negative comments
should try home-brewing. It will give them some appreciation for the craft.

This is pretty good beer. Nothing fancy. But a heck of a lot better than
Budweiser!Samuel Adams is quickly becoming America's mostpopular microbrewer.
If they keep increasing their market share, though, they're going to become too
big to be called "micro"! And whenthat happens, distinctiveness and quality
willsuffer, since it will be made in big batches.Still, it is much better than
most other U.S.macrobrews.
