COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark gold on the eye, weak beige head. Smoke and malt on the nose. Same malt and smokiness on the palate, vague bitter finish with notes of underlying sweetness. Good.

An average beer with trustworthy flavor but nothing spectacular. Fills the niche of those looking for something just above the cheap major brews.

Bärnstensfärgad med liten krona. Doften frisk, lite maltig. Smaken ganska besk, mkt mer humle än "vanlig" lager. Tämligen god.

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 (319) - 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.
