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.

Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with nice white head. Nose is some smoke and fruit. Lager bite in the taste and nice mild bitterness on the backend. You can’t go wrong with this beer.

DrunkSanta410 (306) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2014
On tap at a shitty airport bar. Pours a clear, very light amber color. Aroma is grain, malts, slight caramel, a bit of toast. Taste is not bad, malty with good caramel sweetness, mild bitterness and a hint of toast and grains. Palate is medium body, highly carbonated. A decent option over Coors / bud. Available everywhere.

Xavalias (167) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with thin off-white head, high carbonation. Aroma is hops, malts. Refreshing bitterness, well balanced with malt sweetness. Medium sweet aftertaste. Pretty average, boring lager.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Bouteille de 355 ml achetée dans un IGA local. Dégustée le 9 juin 2014. Bière blonde dorée foncée limpide. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Col moyen blanc off-white persistant. Odeur de sucre, de céréales et de citron. Très douce, assez sucrée, assez amère en finale. Saveur de grain assez corsée, un peu de noix et de caramel en finale. Pas une grande bière mais se boit bien, juste assez corsée. A plus de corps , de consistance que la plupart des lager.

MayumiH (147) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys. The good thing about Sam Adams Boston Lager is that you can get it from any off-licence or super market. Nothing too dramatic. Decent and reliable lager.

LasseVPedersen (266) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Pours clear copper with a red hue to it, nice foamy off-white head that stays for a while. Aroma is malty, with lovely hops and floral touch. Flavour is malty, bread, hops, pine, citrus and caramel. Medium sweet, refreshing bitter in decent long aftertaste and dry finish. Medium body, bit oily texture with average carbonation. Delighted. Good lager
