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.

Bottle imported. Pours rich gold with good foamy heady. Aroma is hoppy, flavour is very malty with distinctive dry hops in the back, balance is very nice. Decent beer, will try it again.

Rich amber color with thin head. Modest hops presence on nose. Satisfactory mouthfeel with nice hops presence to balance the pleasing maltiness.

A satisfying, medium-bodied dark lager. Malty and slightly bitter. Sure looks great in a pitcher on a sticky table.

If you find yourself in a town where the only place you can get beer is the local carry out and they have nothing but "gas station" style beers , then this is probably going to be the best of your options. The aroma is pretty good but the taste is a little weak. When compared to other mass-produced lagers this is one of the better ones

My first American beer on my first trip to US. An easy to find US beer and can often get for £1.50. My father-in-law who usually doesn’t drink lager and when he does drinks rubbish, described this as "the best lager I’ve ever had". Not quite but is pretty good

Better on tap. Fuller aroma with more pronounced hops. Lacey head with great amber color. A little metallic in the finish, but not unpleasant.
