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.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Very clear amber color with beige head. Aroma has fresh, floral hops and some nutty malts. Taste starts with nutty and caramel notes and finishes bitter and hoppy. Medium-light body with good carbonation. Overall it’s a very easy drinking and enjoyable lager.

one of the better lagers out there for malt lovers like me. Because it is a lager don’t expect huge malt flavours, but there is a definite smooth creamy malt flavour under the surface. Not the best, but something I like to order from time to time and much nicer than a lot of the other options at the local.

Lasting head and sweet lacing with caramel character. Mouthfeel is thick and a bit pasty in the finish. Other than that quite drinkable.

Light amber appearance with some creamy head. Tastes of hoppy grass, caramel, krokan, spruce and some vanilla. Medium body, lots of good carbonation, and a lasting aftertaste of floral hops. Another great vienna lager

R2k2 (445) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2015
Quite a dark-yellow, clear beer with a firm compact, slightly yellow layer of foam. A little bit sour aroma, with a touch of grain in the background. It taste a bit apple-sour, but "smoother" than an IPA. Unfortunately, no aftertaste. Een enorm, donkergeel, helder bier met een stevige, compacte, lichtgele kraag. Een ietsjes zuur aroma, met in de verte de toets van graan. De smaak is ietsjes appelzuur, maar minder scherp als die van een IPA. Helaas niet veel nasmaak.

Standard tasting Lager. For an American beer actually pretty good. All though nothing special.

corkyrory66 (1261) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2015
« Lager crafted in single batches », avec du « two row summer barley », mais alors pourquoi Samuel Adams la fait-il brasser sous licence par Sheperd Neame in the UK ??? Quand on prend tant de soins pour les ingrédients et la méthode, on ne délègue pas son travail … Bref … On a comme houblons du Hallertau Mittelfrueh et du Tettnang Tettnanger. Niveau abv de 4,8 %. Couleur ambre roux moyen, à la clarté nette, pure. Bulles fines par centaines, en colonne centrale. Mousse beige clair épaisse, nappage stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, ananas, pointe de muscade, et de muscat aussi (c’est amusant …). 1ère bouche souple sur malt grillé, cassonade, sarrasin. Arrière-bouche de crêpe bretonne froide , avec une pointe de muscade. 2ème à la belle texture, sur du blé noir et cassonade. Arrière-bouche bien agréable. 3ème avec un peu trop de grillé/caramélisé. Arrière-bouche assez dense. Longueur assez monotone, trop de rôti, trop de rousseur caramélisée … Jambes un peu huileuses. Alcool correct, sans plus, ne participant aucunement à l’équilibre. Finale un peu écœurante. CONCLUSION : après des débuts séduisants, on se lasse et on finit en étant un peu écœuré !! Une bière qui fonctionne donc à l’envers, ce qui est très grave ...
