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.

Ottima birra inglese, buon amaricatura molto persistente sia al gusto che al naso. Eccelsa beverinità x una birra perfetta da abbinare a qualsiasi cibo. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Drank in a pub in London with Malou. Nice beer. Hoppy, IPA taste. Pleasant. Good amount of carbonation, liked it. Only the taste is not grabbing enough. There is nice fresh fruity hop accent, but it’s not dominating as it should be. Not complex enough, either. Just a nice beer for when it’s hot but not an excellent special beer.

Pours a clear medium amber with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. Nose is predominantly caramel lager malt, with faint floral hops. Taste is similar, sweet malt and mid hop bitterness. Mouth feel is light- to medium-bodied, with persistent moderate carbonation and a building bitter finish. Not bad for a fairly large-market lager. At least it’s not sickly with adjunct flavours. I wasn’t the least interested in having another, but decent enough for a thirst quenching lager. And it’s another of the 1001 for me to check off the list!

Bittle. Clear copper with a big white fluffy head, some lacings. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and floral hops. Taste is about the same, a malty driven beer with clear notes of caramel and nuts, some hops but not overwhelming bitterness. Medium body, soft to medium carbo. A highly drinkable lager, much better than the average mass produced one.

Bottle. You have to be a millionaire to buy this here in PEI. So i haven’t tried it many times. You definitely notice that it stands out compared to other big lagers, as it has some flavour that isn’t corn cobs pissing in a tin can. This taste more of caramel, nuts, and some woodiness. It also comes with some well placed mouth feel, that lets you know it isn’t just booze water. I could drink if the price is right, but the price is far from right.
