COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Boston Lager® is the best example of the fundamental characteristics of a great beer, offering a full, rich flavor that is both balanced and complex. It is brewed using a decoction mash, a time consuming, traditional four vessel brewing process discarded by many contemporary brewers. This process brings forth a rich sweetness from the malt that makes it well worth the effort. Samuel Adams Boston Lager® also uses only the finest of ingredients including two row barley, as well as German Noble aroma hops. The exclusive use of two row barley not only imparts a full, smooth body but also gives the beer a wide spectrum of malt flavor ranging from slightly sweet to caramel to slightly roasted. The Noble hops varieties, Hallertau Mittelfruh and Tettnang Tettnanger, add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the flavor, to the lingering smooth finish. We take great pride in the Noble hops used in our beers. They are hand selected by Jim Koch and our other brewers from the world’s oldest hops growing area. Among the world’s most expensive, they cost twenty times as much as other hops.

Toasted Carmel aroma. Slight carmel with a light bitter taste. Very carbonated. Nothing special.

500ml can at Lotte Mart for 2$ a can. Clear amber color, soft, delicate herbal hop aroma. Some caramel like malty sweetness, and some honey like ester. Medium carbonated, medium bodied. Pretty bitter finish, with balanced malty sweetness. Very easy to drink, but the rich flavor makes me satisfied.

Bierdimpfe (100) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Veiled golden, almost amber color. Creamy and foamy beige 2 finger head lasting around 5 minutes. Strong lacing with dense activity. Aromas and flavors of caramel, grains and herbal spices. Great intensity and well balanced with a sharp and sweet sensation. The smell is not inviting, being a bit stale and strange, but the taste is superb. Dense full body with perfect carbonation. Faint and short pleasant slight bitter finish with a smoky hoppy end. Overall : Great craft having incredible rich smooth flavors, but with a strange nose indeed.

En fin lagerøl, der har noter af græs og noget tørt træ af en slags. Vældig vin øl, der ikke gør nogen fortræd, men er dejlig læskende.

Towey1989 (1177) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle from The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a clear pale amber with a fizzy off white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, a little orange and slight floral hops. Taste is similar of caramel, toasted malts, some bread, a little orange and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A bittersweet, toasted malt, floral hop bitterness in the finish. An all round decent Vienna Lager. Sweet caramel and toasted malts balanced with some citrus and subtle floral hops. Enjoyable.

commonmac (820) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle acquired at some point by commonshawn. Feels kind of like I’m in an airport bar. Looks very filtered and mass produced. Amber, burnt Sierra type color. Aroma has a bit of hop to it but is mostly an afterthought. Taste is actually a little better than I remember. Malts blend well with some hops. More sweetness than bitterness. Some caramel and a hint of roasted nuts. Ends with a kick of hop bitterness. I’m frustrated that they try to pass themselves off as a craft brewer but their flagship is drinkable.
