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.

Good lager...Good taste. Don’t listen to the knucklehead below who gave this beer a 1 rating. Boston beer helped start this mass exodus from boring beers like bud and coors.

An excellent beer with a solid bite that is enough to scare off some rookies. No aftertaste, though, and goes great with seafood.

I don’t care what anyone says this is a well made beer. I remember when this was the beer that wowed people with flavor. It may not wow anymore but its solid. Good amber color,rich thick head. Aroma of hops and malt. Flavor is assertively hoppy and slightly bitter, with a good balance of malt. Very clean and smooth finish.

Drank from a 12 oz. bottle. Nice honey aftertaste. Classic lager flavor that one can never tire from.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Easily obtainable. Consistant. More flavor than any Macro beer. I like the nose and appearance of this beer. It has a nice hoppy flavor in comparison to any other American beer you will find on most restaurant menus.

amber with an off white head. taste is malty with a bit of bitter balance. not very complex, but it tastes good, and goes down easy. and best of all, it's very widely availible.

All right when the other choices are bud and bud light. Has a burnt nutty aftertaste.

Decent beer that’s generally available. Drinks well but has a slight aftertaste that is less than desirable.
