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.

Good for a lager, but lagers aren’t that good. However, does have good amount of flavor. Ale drinkers should go for Sam’s Cream Stout- it’s much better, with basically the same flavor profile as the Boston Lager.

Woah, I forgot to rate this. Used to think that this was premium and substantially better than other American crap. While I’ll take this over a Bud, the fruit and malty notes aren’t really subtle or slight, they’re just plain weak. Sam’s Double Bock is far superior to this.

It’s got the German hops in the aroma, but it doesn’t translate very well to the flavor. The Boston Ale is a much better beer.

Great amber color, but tastes slightly better than a budweiser. Its an average beer, but not something I could drink or buy on a regular basis.

A true American Classic(no, thats not an oxymoron!). Great standard for beer lovers. A few pitchers of this with friends at the bar is a great evening indeed.

Smooth amber color, light head, strong hop aroma. Taste is gently bitter with a mild aftertaste that dissipates a little too quickly.
