Samuel Adams "Blueberry Hill Lager"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
Lager (ABV 5.5%) (IBU 18)

[Suggested Glassware: Snifter]

Rating: 2.7/5.0

Aroma: 5/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a medium golden amber with a large (2-3 finger) white pillowy head that receded slowly, lasting throughout and had excellent spotty lacing.

The aroma was very big on blueberry with a sweet biscuit malt, light citrus hops and a mildly sweet yeast with a hint of candi sugar.

The taste was lightly malty sweet with a decent blueberry presence that lasted throughout with the finish having a touch of citrus and a mild bitterness at the end. The flavor lasted a very short time after the swallow with the taste of blueberry out lasting all other flavors.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a prickly carbonation.

Overall this brew is OK, but nothing really special. Although, I think it would be fine on a hot summer’s day with some grilled Shish-Kabobs...
