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.

This has to be my favorite session lager. Always plenty of head. Decent malty aroma. Easy on the palate with a fair smack of hops and plenty of malty goodness to back it. Yum.

bottle.Light amber with light white lacing. This is a very nice consistent brew that offers a well malt to hop balance. Nice caramel malts with an piney floral bitter finish. Leaves me wanting another

Amber color, medium body. Slightly bitter finish but good balanced beer. I love this beer I drink it most of time when I have a beer in the USA and there are no micros available.

Great on tap. A good standby that is widely available. The end of the first pint usually has a bit of an aftertaste that is easily solved by another pint. Can’t drink more than a couple of these in a row though.

Lovely complex malt flavors. Nice noble hops to balance the malts. A crisp, clean drinking lager from Samuel Adams.

Passed by this numerous times in the beer store. Finally bought some when I moved to Japan- discovered at the local corner store strangely enough- was a nice diversion from the rice lagers. Remains a favorite sessional lager. Well balanced.
