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.

12oz bottle in holiday pack from Food Lion. Golden brown hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting thin fizzy white head. Spotty but good lacing. Citrus hop, dark malt, and floral aromas. Malt and floral taste up front with more of a citrus hop finish. Good carbonaion.

Aromat slodowy, lekko chmielowy i karmelowy. Barwa bursztynowa, drobna piana. Niezbyt obfita. W smaku nuty chmielowe,słodowe, delikatnie drewniane. Piwo dość mocno wysycone, ale bardzo pijalne, gładkie. Świetny lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3/3 (Draft - Houlihans Chicago) - Copper pour with minimal head and carbonation. Mild malt aroma, not very strong with a light texture and feel. OK beer.

bottle 355 mL, poured in lager glass, brown cloudy color with creamy medium head. aroma is mostly malt. medium body beer with surprising intense flavor for a lager, thanks for the bitter ending and refreshing at the same time, not very complex since taste is mostly caramel malt and bread but very tasty. good example of a fine viena

My go to "airport bar beer"- much more body and character than what I generally get in a lager. Easy to drink and tasty. Hits the spot during the inevitable flight delays :-)

DocJitsu (1154) - Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Clear copper-golden pour with a dull, pale white head. Bitter, sour, and powdery on the nose. Soft mouthfeel with average carbination. Toasted malt and a soured flavor with a bittering hop profile.

I has a decent head, soapy white lacing, the aroma is mild malt and honey. The taste isn’t great, fairly bitter that isn’t balanced out but still easy, sweet tasting beer.
