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.

I was much impressed by the beautifull malt flavor. The head was full and frothy. the hops left me wanting more. P.V.B. gave me my first bottle. Thanks Paul.

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 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.

bottle. this beer poured a brownish amber with a slight sweet malty smell. taste of malt and chocolate, hops, with a hint of grassy citrus. a pretty mellow and balanced beer without nasty chemical overtones. not bad or a big brewery in the u.s.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2005 Another catastrophic failure for the Boston Beer Company. Heavy ass lager that tastes like I licked the bottom of an oak barrel. The only reason this gets a 3 in Flavor is because I tried it in Colonial Williamsburg on draft and managed to choke it down without throwing up bile the rest of the night.

A damn sight better than any other macro you can get in a restaruant. IN my top five in the American Lager category,easily. Good with pizza, mexican, or by itself. It should be noted I am one of the few beer snobs who will sing the praises of Sammy Adams.
