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.

A solid year-round, noble beer. The taste may get a bit overdone after awhile, so you cant have too much at once. One of the strongest popular lagers.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 One of only few mass produced American beers worth drinking. Good, malty lager, nice bronze color, unique, bold, slightly roasted flavor. Very solid lager.

Nice pretty amber color. Nice smooth. Little bit low on flavor. Really no palate. Average beer.

This happens to be Mrs. Ludwig's favorite brew, so I have to be careful. For a so called craft beer I guess it is not bad.

lets start off with color, it is a golden copper, and the head is a creamy off white. The flavor is nutty, a little almond and peanut and sweet. it has a bit of a sweet and biter aftertaste (odd). Smooth palate, head holds great. A great lager, like whoa.

I just started drinking this stuff and it left me with a bad after taste. Overall I was not impressed by this beer. A bad bitter tasting lager, Crap!!

Nothing special compared to other stuff that’s readily available today, but I’m forever grateful to this beer for setting me on the path to craft brews. It’s a decent and solid brew and I’m glad that it’s available almost everywhere. Based on the selection at some bars, I feel luck to get this!

Good old Sam Adams never lets me down. Pours a rich amber color while delivering a complex yet balanced taste that leaves you refreshed. Its hard to pinpoint an exact aroma because of the complex flavors, but the citrus stands out due to the quality of hops. Have another? Indeed my friend!
