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.

Pours clear copper with a thing white head. The aroma is a boring lager aroma. As for lagers though its quite nice, some light malt flavours and a hint of pine.

Flasche (355 ml) von Getränkefeinkost Berlin. - Schönes Orangegold, leicht trüb. - In der Nase milder aber angenehm aromatischer, zitrusfruchtig-herber amerikanischer Hopfen und würziges Karamelmalz. - Antrunk ebenfalls zitrusfruchtig-harzig hopfenherb mit toastigen Karamelnoten. Wenig süß. Eher mild rezent, weich im Mund. Aromatisch hopfenherber Abgang. - Sehr schön gehopftes, stark Pale-Ale-inspiriertes Lagerbier.

I think this is my favourite American beer. I like the strong caramel taste and have never seen it in a can. They call it a lager but it seems more like an ale with its great flavour.

Una lager tostada y sorprendentemente sabrosa para cualquier ajeno a lo craft. Dentro del mundo artesano ya ha sido muy superada por otras, pero no hay que desmerecerla por su rango de clásico dentro de las craft beer americanas.

Toasted Carmel aroma. Slight carmel with a light bitter taste. Very carbonated. Nothing special.

nerdboy19 (171) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - FEB 9, 2016
500ml can at Lotte Mart for 2$ a can. Clear amber color, soft, delicate herbal hop aroma. Some caramel like malty sweetness, and some honey like ester. Medium carbonated, medium bodied. Pretty bitter finish, with balanced malty sweetness. Very easy to drink, but the rich flavor makes me satisfied.

Bierdimpfe (349) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Veiled golden, almost amber color. Creamy and foamy beige 2 finger head lasting around 5 minutes. Strong lacing with dense activity. Aromas and flavors of caramel, grains and herbal spices. Great intensity and well balanced with a sharp and sweet sensation. The smell is not inviting, being a bit stale and strange, but the taste is superb. Dense full body with perfect carbonation. Faint and short pleasant slight bitter finish with a smoky hoppy end. Overall : Great craft having incredible rich smooth flavors, but with a strange nose indeed.
