  • Brewmaster’s Collection: Samuel Adams Scotch Ale

    Brewmaster’s Collection: Samuel Adams Scotch Ale

    Samuel Adams Scotch Ale is a unique ale which stands in a class by itself. Scotch Ale is full of dynamic malts, slightly more bitter than a winter brew, hints of coffee aromas, caramel and smokey hazelnut rises from the glass; this is a first class collectors brew of complex proportions.

    Samuel Adams Irish Red Brewmaster’s Collection

    It’s time to try something a bit different from the Samuel Adams branding. Boston Beer Company has always done well with their beers by shipping a high quality product of homebrew standards with great tastes sticking to traditional recipes. Irish Red is no less. Truly, I was worried when I poured the Samuel Adams Irish Red into my tall pint class. I’ve had many Red’s and plenty which were “so so” standard fair and I wanted Samuel Adams to be […]
