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.

Hmm... has a malt liqour taste in a fancy bottle. It has a extremely bitter taste. If your looking for bad beer you might want to try of 40oz of malt liquor.. hey at least you get more.. If it wasnt brewed in Milwaukee its not worth drinking

A good tasting beer that can be found in most places. It may be a victim of its own success as it is now seen as common.

punkpie (19) - Covina, California, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Pours a reddish golden color... with a sweet scent... and a caramel-malty flavor... initially the carbonation tickles your tongue then waters down over it... ending with a buttery hop aftertaste... Not bad but not a favorite by any means...

Slight aroma. Nice amber colour. Decent mouth feel. Geniric hop bitterness that finishes a little astringent and roughly hewn.. Over priced, IMO
