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.

What can I say. Best lager out there. Doesn’t taste like a macro, but is. Lager with color. Nutty and a bit malty. Two finger head, uneventful aroma.

Definitely drinkable. Not the most full flavored amber lager that I’ve had, Maybe if I had the boston lager glass, my impression would change.

bottle 355 mL, poured in lager glass, brown cloudy color with creamy medium head. aroma is mostly malt. medium body beer with surprising intense flavor for a lager, thanks for the bitter ending and refreshing at the same time, not very complex since taste is mostly caramel malt and bread but very tasty. good example of a fine viena

This has become the beer lover’s budweiser. This is the classic beer that you start your night with and go up from there. A classic.

Clear and dark amber colored. Actively carbonated with a minimal beige head. Hoppy aroma, and some fruit, a little roast. Somewhat thick in the mouth with lots more hops and a little more citrus. Fun bitterness at the finish.

Amber with a straw head. Noble hop aromas, floral and citrus. Tastes of pale malt and rich hop bittering. Full bodied for a lager and mild caramel notes help this one stand out from a category plauged by mediocracy.

This is a great beer that is always a good choice. I love the aroma and taste that is produced from the ample amount of hops that are used. It would have to be my most favorite lager.
