Inspired by a clone recipe for Samuel Adams Boston Lager but with added hops and a Munich Lager yeast. This produced a delicious amber lager with a wonderfully floral and spicy hop character, some drinkers even claimed it was superior to the original…

  1. I can definitely attest to this being a FANTASTIC recipe. I make no secret of my fondness of an amber lager, but this one was one of the nicest I’ve tried. Loads of body, without being heavy, clean, fresh, fruity and very moreish. I drank it too quickly though… [hic]
