Sam Adams intrigues...

I have started to sample Sam Adams line of beers. As American beer goes, I am quite impressed. Their seasonal line is quite diverse. Go to Sam Adams and mouse over the beers. I have tried all of them and can say with much certainty, that I enjoyed all of them. The Double Bock, which is set to his shelves again in January, is my new favorite beer. Quite malty, but smooth. Try it. The Black Lager is reminiscent of a bock, but not as strong. Almost as good. Their Holiday Sampler includes six different brews: Old Fezziwig Ale (B-), Black lager(A-), Cranberry Lanbic(B), Winter Lager(C), White Ale(c+), and Holiday Porter(B+). Below is the description of my favorite of the month, Double Bock:

"One can not help but appreciate Samuel Adams® Double Bock's huge malt character. We use an enormous amount of malt, half a pound per bottle, to brew this intensely rich lager. Its deep brown-ruby color is all made in the kettle - no black malt is used, resulting in a rich sweetness that is free of the rough taste of burnt malt. All that remains is the velvet smooth flavor and mouthfeel of the two row malt. Samuel Adams® Double Bock's intense malt character is balanced with a subtle piney, citrus hop note from the German Noble hops."
