I have not had a Big Boss Brewing Company in a while until I purchased Big Boss Lager Beer, 5% ABV from Total Wine recently. This is a Munich style Helles Lager which is a pale lager beer produced mainly in southern Germany. Helles means “bright”, “light”, or “pale”. Big Boss Lager Beer pours a golden color with a thick four finger white head. The aroma smells like a traditional Helles with malty biscuity bread notes wafting into your nose. Taste follows the aroma with biscuit malt flavors with a light yet faint sweetness that is refreshing with a little crispness that finish smooth with a little biscuit malt flavor and a nice smooth aftertaste that is faintly sweet with a lighter mouthfeel. Big Boss Brewing Company Big Boss lager Beer really is a Munich Style Helles Lager and is well deserving of an A+, I highly recommend this beer and I will be going back for more of Big Boss Lager Beer. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!

When it comes to craft beer the word Lager is looked on as a bad or dirty word. That can be so do to BMC (Bud Miller Coors) for brewing such bad or weak tasting beers. But I don’t think that lager is such a fowl word. I have had some great lagers and this Samuel Smith Pure Brewed Organic Lager, 5.0% ABV, is what a BMC/lager beer should taste like. Samuel Smith an English brewery has some of the best beers in the world. This lager is no different. Samuel Smith Lager pours a bright golden color with a pure white foamy head that says for a nice while and makes very nice lacing. There is tons of light streaming through the glass with tons of little carbonation bubbles. This is a beautiful look lager beer. The aroma on this English lager is bready from the malted barely used. I also found a cracker like scent among the bready aroma. The taste is not far off from the nice aroma; I found it bready up front and a little teeny sweetness toward the end. The flavors on this lager are crisp, sharp, light, and refreshing. The mouth feel is light and refreshing, and has a clean crisp bready like finish. The after taste is a tad bit sweeter then the start but fades out rather quick. I think this is Samuel Smith Pure Brewed Organic Lager is how a BMC should taste. Forget adding SO much water to the darn lager. This Samuel Smith beer is getting A+ from me. This is an excellently brewed lager and a great example of how lager is supposed to be. I have yet to have a bad Samuel Smith beer! All of the beers that they brew are just as excellent as the last. This Organic Lager is something I would have over and over again, and it’s good that is 5.0% ABV. I highly recommend trying this lager, so go and see how great this beer is! Cheers Please enjoy responsibly!
