COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Boston Lagerģ 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 Lagerģ 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 worldís oldest hops growing area. Among the worldís most expensive, they cost twenty times as much as other hops.

Cor âmbar escura. Pouca formação de espuma. Aroma de malte alegre e um pouco cítrico do lúpulo. Sabor de pão, comum toque cítrico. Muito boa larger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What else can I say that already hasnít been said. Tastes much better than any other lager that Iíve had. I finally bucked the "popular" trend and gave Sam a try. Should have a long time ago.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 Bottle, poured into pint glass. Decent head, good lacing. What happened to this beer? Sam Adams mustíve boosted the carbonation level because there is a whole lot of it. The hops went awol. This is not even close to what it tasted like a few years ago. The shareholders are weighing heavily on the quality of this once phenomenal brew.

A little darker than other lagers Iíve tried. Better than Bud, Coors, or Miiler, and only slightly more expensive.

Probably one of the best American lagers around. And by the way, a brewer and a patriot is a man with his priorities in order.

Not a big favorate of mine. I donít like the malt/hops balance here. I like a nice hop flavor but this just doesnít do it for me. Iíll pass on this one everytime (unless Iím completely out of beer)

billism (44) - Missouri City, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2005
12oz bottle. Aroma: malty, slighty hopy. small off-white head. well balanced but somewhat weak flavor of sweet malt and hops. Not a bad beer and a lot of the time, the best choice at many bars that serve mainly large corp. beers.

Very hoppy, has a bitter aftertaste I donít particularly like, but itís not undrinkable. There are some better beers out there and this is not a noteworthy beer, but itís not a bad beer at all.

Pours translucent gold. White/tan head. Tart, orange rind taste w/ spice. Carmel flavor in malt. Not sour or milky, in the middle. Great beer.
