metawidget: Blue bucket with thirty bottles of beer. (beer)
I tried Samuel Adams Boston Lager® with homemade pizza topped with garden veggies. As is proper for pizza and beer (and to make up for using the word "effervescence" in my last review), I had it from the bottle, and cold.

I can't comment on head, or colour, as it was hidden in a brown bottle. The taste started out malty, a bit sweet, a bit tart, and with a hoppy aroma. Down the bottle, it got a bit more bitter and less aromatic, and stayed malty and somewhat tart. The carbonation wasn't obtrusive at all, but it was there. I liked it; I think it would be a good refreshing beer, and it can certainly hold its own with hot pizza. It seems like the midpoint between the Scotch-Irish Stewart's Session Ale (aromatic, complex and bright) and a Labatt Bleue (in terms of alcohol and punchiness of flavour), but more tart and malty than either. I hear that Sam Adams is popular in universities out west of Toronto; it seems to me they have good taste in beer out there.

Also, now we can all stop worrying about women with face coverings threatening our airports: there's a bigger threat to airport safety out there, channeling equal parts Stockwell Day trying to look cool on a toy vehicle and Helena Guergis being erratic in an airport while driving unannounced across an airstrip. Is there a fixed election date coming soon?
