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.

I’ve never been a fan of Sam Adams flagship beer. The taste is a bit funny to me. I prefer the Sam Adams specialty beers much more over this one. Taste has always been metallic to me with a bitter back-end. Pours clear, reddish amber.

Creamy head over honey colored beer. Smells malty. Tastes of malt and mild lemon, with a mildly bitter finish. Palate is smooth, for being so light, carbonation fine. Pretty good for a lager.

A solid beer that seems to be further from my palette’s liking every year I try it. Not sure if my tastes are changing or if this beer is getting thinner.

Good looking orange with a thick white head in the glass. Strong touches of citrus and rust, nice bitter aftertaste, combined with the restrained alcoholic content this should make the beer enjoyable in the hot season too. I expected more honestly, it’s a nice simple beer though a style that I don’t particulary love.

Light clear golden colour - settles to little head after medium carbonation . Decent aroma and taste - slight ting on tongue and in mouth, but ok.

This one has been widely available for so long, I’m surprised that I’ve never rated it. 12 oz bottle pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a big frothy white head that subsides and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is inoffensive, with bready malts, cardboard, and a bit of pine resin. Taste is slightly sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is light to medium with slight carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. One of the better mass-produced American lagers. Still, when I go to a restaurant and this is the best beer offered, I’ll drink coffee or fruit juice instead.
