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.

A truly pleasant beer that gives a boring lagers a run for their money. Balanced hop notes make this very sessionable.

If you can’t appreciate this beer, your nose is too high in the air. Had this today while watching football. Had a bowl of Chili and it’s taste shifted to a fruit-like quality I’ve only experienced with Bells beers. Entry-level craft style beer.

Had on tap at the Memphis Airport, always was curious to try this one. Aroma was actually alittle skunky on this one but had a nice golden colour. Wasnt overly impressed but will give it another try.

12 fl oz. Tall glass. Pours a nice glear gold. head lasts a little while but not too long. Floral hop nose with a little citrus. Bitter start with a small hop finish. Quite nice but could be better in the mouth.

12oz bottle and on tap. This is the stepping stone beer towards craft beer for me. I was obsessed with it for awhile. Solid beer over all. Pours a clear golden. Very smooth and easy to drink. Can’t go wrong with this if the options are limited.

Pours amber with a billowy off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is toasty, with some spiciness from the hops. Taste is somewhat sweet with a dry, somewhat bitter finish. Some acidity from the carbonation. Light body. No one particular aspect stands out, well balanced.

Not a lager fan, but I do like Sammy! We all know what it tastes like so... I do like it though. Better than all of those other so called commercial lagers with rice fillers!!!
