Ha its funny you mention Samuel Adams....i tried my first 2 pints of it whilst waiting in the Las Vegas airport departure lounge (brags). Its ok but its got nothing on Newcastle Brown Ale imo. I actually asked for that then the bartender said SA was the closest thing they had to it.
I was there about 3 years a go and got hooded to Samuel Adams. They did have pretty good seasoning SA back then.
Just completely forgot about a beer i got hooked on again in Vegas:
And yes that is an orange you see!
Oh snap! Did not remember this anymore!
When I talked to locals they did recomend allmost allways either Samuel adams or Blue moon. When I did get my first Blue moon I was like wtf is this orange here. Was sure they was joking to me but no they was serious. And actually it was not that bad at all. Normally beers in there Usa are pure shit, like Budweiser/Miller/Corrs (believe these are 3 most selling there) but Samuel Adams and Blue moon was pretty good one's.
