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.

Go to beer, when out to eat and only the Buds and Millers are on tap. This seems to always be available as well. I nice representative of the amber/Vienna style lager. Not as good as Leinie’s Red, but not bad.

Sdaniel90 (226) - Estado de México, MEXICO - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Pours a clear amber colour that looks rather dead despite the heavy carbonation with a lacey offwhite head. Some nice hoppiness in the aroma, but not much going on. Not bad to drink, but everyone knows this is Sam Adams’ most commercial brew. Halfway between craft and macro, but still a decent beer.

aumax1 (185) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
pinte d’ambrée prise au bar. arome tres subtil de malt houblon et notes d’agrume. le gout est beaucoup plus intéressant on trouve des notes de pomme avec une petite amertume bien agréable. une fois la mousse partie les arômes ressortent et sont beaucoup plus intéressants

Bottle morrisons. Dark amber colour shortlived white head. Aroma is sweet caramal, fruity and malty. Taste is similar the malts really last in the finnish. Good smooth body and just enough carbonation. Really good, not your usual larger!!

Pours an amber colour with a massive fluffy tan head. Aroma includes sweet caramel, toffee, crackers, and slightly peppery. Tasting notes include slick toffee and caramel, sweet malt notes, and a slightly bitter finish. This kind of lager really sets the bar for lagers!
