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.

thellgren (810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2016
0.33 l bottle from K-Citymarket Lohja. Clear amber colour. Aroma is sweetish like caramel. Taste is at first also caramel then bitter hops. Later on caramels turn into malts. Quite OK, it’s just not my favourite beer style.

can on airplane I hadn´t drunk this in a long time, so I decided to try again to put it here on Ratebeer. Better than I expected from an American lager, but well behind world class quality. Nice darker color than I remembered, heavy initial foaming (from a can is not the best measure, I´m sure). Inoffensive without being inspiring. Better than most American mass market brews.

BeerNinjaUK (243) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2016
330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours light amber with thin white head. Aroma biscuity with treacle and pear. Fairly bland and without any strength in the hops.

BeerdedDave (1351) - Beckley, USA - APR 14, 2016
clear amber color; aroma is light floral hops and bready malt with hints of caramel and citrus; medium bodied bready malt with light caramel notes and grassy hop notes; fairly well balanced; overall a decent lager; one of the better beers available at bars that don’t have good beers

jerama (51) - SLOVENIA - APR 11, 2016
Pours a honey-orange body with a short head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, malts and a bit of bread. Taste of caramel, malts with notes of bread and grapefruit. Bitterness is mild, but noticable and aftertaste of pine. Medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation.

Fules (792) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 8, 2016
Közepes, viszonylag gyorsan eltűnő hab, de egy vékony fátyol sokáig megmarad. Rézvörös szín. Illata intenzíven komlós, virágos, zöldfűszeres, némi földességgel. Íze erősen szénsavas, amber ales, de persze ez egy összetéveszthetetlen láger, a hozzá tartozó kissé kénes mellékízzel. A szokásos kommersz lágerekhez képest sokkal intenzívebb ízvilágú, virágos, zöldfűszeres kissé földes aromákkal. Utóíze kissé savanykásba vált, de a komlók ízei megmaradnak. Testes, de nem nehéz sör.

Rask0lnikov (743) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2016
Amber colour. Hoppy, bit sweet, citrussy, but somehow arificial aroma. Sweet at the beginning. Citrussy. Hints of peach. Fruity finish. Sweet aftertaste. Something bothers me also in the taste. Fruitiness also seems to be artificial. Or is it some unusual combination of hops? It is also deja vu feeling. Been here, done that... It is drinkable, but second glass would be tough one.
