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.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 spicy and flavorful lager that surpases anyones expectations of mass produced and marketing beer.

As a lager it out performs wonderfully: thick mouthfeel, great taste and flavor. Sets the Sammy Adams standard.

Wow! What a full satisfying flavor. That is what this one is all about. Delicious in every way with many, many flavors to hunt for with each sip (or gulp as I like to do.)God Bless the USA!

Not bad, but too much fuss made over it. A fresh Leine’s almost fooled me into thinking it was THIS beer. Needs more malt and better hops...

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 8, 2002
nice red colour with big fluffy head, bold hoppy nose, bitter hoppy tatse, certainly one of the better yank beers.

jedimasternick (96) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2002
This beer has a bitter smell that does not find it’s way into the taste. It is very smooth with a large head, and overall a very good choice.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Easily obtainable. Consistant. More flavor than any Macro beer. I like the nose and appearance of this beer. It has a nice hoppy flavor in comparison to any other American beer you will find on most restaurant menus.
