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.

Just a good average beer, nothing to drastic, and nothing awful either.

Can’t really stand this stuff. It’s too bitter and agressive for my palate. Just seems like it’s trying too hard.

A pleasant hoppiness but most distinctive for high carbonation.

Nice beer on tap but loses something in the bottle. Had one last night and once again I get a very metallic taste. 8/15/2002 Much smoother this time around as in the kind of lager I could just keep tossin’ down the old piehole. Side by side against Bass with a burger and some chowda this beer will win out every time. P.S. Please bring back the old label.

Can’t believe I almost forgot this. One of my favorite commonly accessable beers. Light flavor and very drinkable. Good with pizza,wing and all other bar food.

Nice amber color certainly looks good. But looks can be deceiving. This is a pretty average tasting beer with a little more roasted malt flavor than a macro-lager IMO. But it is widely available and sometimes the best choice where there is limited availability of better beers.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent beer that’s generally available. Drinks well but has a slight aftertaste that is less than desirable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good beer in small doses. Not as good as the Boston Ale
