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.

Un goût de biscuit et de réglisse pour cette bière ambrée plus légère que la moyenne du type. Une meilleure surprise que l’attendu.

Cor alaranjada, brilhante. Espuma boa e de média persistência. Aroma maltado expulsado, trazendo um excelente equilíbrio. No paladar notas de pão, biscoito, caramelo, doce de laranja e fruta cítricas. Corpo leve. Alta drinkability.

Fľaša 330 ml zo Seoul Plaza Bratislava. Jantárová farba, pekná jemná biela pena, krúžkuje, aróma chmelu a citrusu. Nižšia rezkosť, príjemne sladovo horkasté telo, chutné a piteľné pivo.

330ml bottle pours clear copper. Not much off the nose, but its quite inviting and clean. Good sweetness, grainy, corny sweetness. Good spicy, Herbal hops balance out the sweetness beautifully. Long finish that bitters nicely. Well constructed stuff.
