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.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 Nice amber color with decent head. Aroma is bready/wheat and it showed up in the aftertase too. When you have a limited selection I would always go with this one.

The origional. Pretty damn good. It is very hard to tell apart taste wise from Black Lager, maybe cause I had too many, but it was very good, but a little rougher than Black Lager. I would buy it.

Haha. I love the snobs on here! This beer has nut and fruit flavors, is really well-balanced, and tastes great over and over. Anyone who doesn’t appreciate it is being a twat, "Oh, piff, a lager, well, it’s not nearly hopped enough, or burnt enough, or black enough, or heavy enough..." Haha, fuck you, snobs. Funny that you think you’re high-cultured when you can’t taste a good beer unless it smacks you hard in the face with an overkill of hops and alcohol. This is one of the best lagers I’ve ever had... nope it’s not a stout, or a trappist ale; it’s a lager, and can be appreciated on its’ own terms, unless you’re a smug fuckhead.

Samuel Adams is definately one of the best beers around. The color is a deep amber, it looks delicious. The taste is smooth and has hints of sweetness in the aroma. Frankly, I have to say that this beer tasted liked beer. It tastes the way that everybody has in their head as the way beer is supposed to taste like. A great beer by the makers of great beer, I enjoy many of Samuel Adams’ products, it can be said that I am a Samuel Adams guy.

Without a doubt one of the better lagers anywhere. Nicely carbonated and a touch of sweetness. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Botella de 33 cl. Crea una alta capa de espuma inicial que rápidamente desaparece, color cobrizo brillante. Su nivel de carbonatación hace que perdure la burbuja en el vaso. El cóctel de lúpulos aporta un fresco sabor herbal con un ligero amargor, notas a membrillo, pomelo y mandarina. Las maltas aportan un medido dulzor e intentan dejar un final seco en el paladar. Equilibrada, no cansa y es un buen estándar de cerveza industrial.

I’ve only had this a couple of times, not really my favorite... but it could be a lot worse.

I do find myself drinking this more often than I would like. Many of the people I know are yuppies and a dead revolutionary on the label of a beer makes it a status symbol. I still prefer yuengling if I need something to swig at a party.

American beer with that European flavor. I can’t knock it...except for the price at my local Kroger’s..heck for a buck and half more I could buy serious imports. If you get the opportunity try this one on draught. It is twice as good.
