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.

Light copper/amber color with short lived white head. Aroma of herbal hops and some malt. Bread and yeast flavor with a good amount of hops. Medium bodied. Not exactly what I expected from a lager, but ok.

The aroma has more hops than I expect from a lager. The taste isn’t very complex, though.Some barley malt I can taste, but no other flavors. It’s been years since I’ve had this beer, and I like it more than I did back then. Still, it’s only an OK beer.

Draft. Minimal aroma, nice white head. Light body. Good example of a real American lager. No aftertaste, wish it had more overall flavor

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 10, 2013
The color is a dark golden with a head that dissipates quickly, and the aroma is very subtle with hints of yeast and dough coming forward. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sweet, and slightly sour; the palate includes a medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish to make a fairly solid beer.

Meh. It’s ok. No real hop aroma. A slight bit malty. Crystal clear. Can’t complain too much. Not as expensive as the west coast brews. Don’t know what else to say.
