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.

A Sloid lager for a decent price. It reminds me of a chez beer with a slighlt buttery taste to it. Bottle.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 From various places Aroma: hops, caramel Appearance: Amber, frothy white head, great lacing Taste: Same as aroma, with some underlying bitterness than helps balance Light carbonation, easy drinking. A good beer you can find everywhere. If this was someone’s solo impression of American beer, I wouldn’t mind that at all.

I’ll always have a place in my heart for Sam Adams. All around solid lager with decent maltiness and a clean finish. If you can’t respect a Boston Lager then I don’t know if we can be friends.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice golden amber color, thick pearly head, nice lacing. Aroma is faint caramel malt and hay, with some yeasty notes. Flavor is faintly bitter, with a sweet crisp finish. Overall a decent amber lager.

Drank from an SA pint glass at a chain restaurant, after a hike. Intense orange color. Aroma - light, a mix of hops and malt. Taste - good malty taste with a bit of hops for balance. crisp carbonated mouthfeel. Not a bad beer at all.

Dark copper pour. Large beige head, disappears quickly and leaves a little lacong. Nose is caramel malt, citrus, and spicy/ floral hops. Mouthfeel is soft but crisp. Lots of smooth caramel, bready malt, and pleasant noble hops. Finishes slightly sweet and malty with a touch of hops. Well constructed and delicious.
