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.

This is a pretty good beer. Well, good for a ad beer. It has a nice hoppy after taste. This is a beer I would buy for a party.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Aromatic large fizzy head. Laces very well for a major brand beer. Amber color. Good hops aroma (Saas?) body is light. Is somewhat sweet and cidery. Finishes uneventful but clean and slight caramel. A "good decision" when choices are very limited, but definanately not "ven ve haf tausens(?) off bierss "

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 About as good as you can get in a North American brew. Citrus overtones permeate this beer. A dark, enticing colour and full bodied experience...definitely worth the moderate markup required in getting this stuff across the border.

Have had in bottles and on tap. Darkish-amber color. Was of equal cost on tap as Budweiser and is clearly better.

Very nice dark amber colour. Impressive rocky head. It has an intensive taste of malt but not much else.

Nothing to balance out the malts in the flavor or aroma. I enjoy it with food but the malt flavor is not good enough for me to drink it for a session.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Pours dark golden to slight amber with small off-white head. Aroma and flavor are both a good balance of malt and hops. Nothing exceptional about it, but it is a good lager that is quite drinkable.

Bottle. Dark golden color with small head. More hoppy (flowers resinous) and bitter than your avg. lager. Slightly watery.
