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.

Pretty darn good for a lager. Distinct, well balanced malt and hop notes and goes down smooth.

Bottle - pours copper with white head. Aroma is dominated by sweet malt with some hops. Taste is sweet up front with a dry finn Sh. Creamy palate not too much carbonation.

This one has been widely available for so long, I’m surprised that I’ve never rated it. 12 oz bottle pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a big frothy white head that subsides and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is inoffensive, with bready malts, cardboard, and a bit of pine resin. Taste is slightly sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is light to medium with slight carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. One of the better mass-produced American lagers. Still, when I go to a restaurant and this is the best beer offered, I’ll drink coffee or fruit juice instead.

473 ml can from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with lots of billowing white head. Retention is good and it leaves behind a ton of lacing.

Aroma: Bread, yeast.

Flavours: Bread, malt, biscuit.

Mouthfeel: Creamy with average carbonation.

Overall: I’m not a big Lager fan but this is decent. Lots of malt coming through and it has this nice creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Really tasty lager - very malty and robust, but not too heavy either. One of the best

Hiero (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2015
The things going for this beer is a decent body and some bitterness. However the bitterness is somewhat astringent and the body lacks character. Better than the standard American pale lager, but needs more depth.

Delicious lager with plenty of taste. Fairly light, with an appealing color and a soft palate. Full of flavor and somewhat fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
