Thanks for giving us such a wonderful gift. Spicy, hearty and smooth. Day or night, cold or hot it’s beautiful. Makes a GREAT beer batter. And it’s my lucky beer. 4 hours, 13 Boston Lagers, 2 dice, 1 casino 12k. Yeah, yum!!!

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Samuel Adams Boston Lager
24 oz bottle
Recent bottling, appreciated 09/06
Medium pour in a pilsner glass
Poured copper bronze with a 1/2 white mostly diminishing white frothy head.
Smelt of dark bready malts and soft citrus hops.
Taste was upfront medium piney bitter hops and very slightly citrusy as well, with the follow through a bit like sweet dark bread melding with the remaining bitter hoppiness for a pleasant lingering finish. Mouthfeel was medium and dry with lively carbonation.
Overall, in my humble opinion, the best mass-marketed lager on the american market, an serves as a great entry point to the world of beer to the unitiated cheap american pilsner drinkers.

Aroma - floral, citrus, slight fruitiness;
Appearance - copper, thick fluffy head, excellent lacing;
Taste - complex malt front, hint of sweetness, subtle hop notes blend in throughout the back, finish has a mild tang;
Palate - faint crispness, good body;
Overall - always a classic, so easy to overlook as an over-commercialized micro yet still solid in all areas, quite enjoyable.

The original! Really great session beer. Perfect with steak, burgers or anything really. Great hop flavor but not too hoppy. Well balanced, great for drinking!

Everything good and noble about American beer can be applied to Boston Lager. This darkish lager plays Grey Goose to Budweiser’s Popov.

12 oz bottle. Copper in color with a nice long lasting head. Aroma of citrus hops balanced by a sweetness of malts. When you smell it you know it is Boston Lager. Body is crisp and firm . Nicely balanced in flavor, with citrusy hops slightly dominate over malts. Just perfect but highly underrated lager.

One of my favorite beers. Hoppy enough to give good aroma andd flavor, but not overpowering. Pretty filling and has decent enough mouth feel to be a mass produced beer. Can’t go wrong here.

*This is a Must try Beer*
We really like this beer, It seems it is all a lager should be, rather than read the deScriptions this is one you really need to go out and try.
When we buy beer it is usually a toss up between the Sam Adams Boston Lager and something else.

One of my all time favorites! A huge fan of anything made by the Boston Beer Company!
This lager is so good, most of my foreign friends drink and enjoy it!
Outstanding hop aroma and flavor, one of the freshest tasting beers available. Excellentt maltiness comes through on every sip, counterbalanced extremely well by the pleasant bitterness. Creamy head that you can stand your beer cap on! An excellent world class beer!

This is a great american beer that is readly available throughout the U.S in bottle or draft. I believe the draft is smoother. Great amber color with a rich flavor. This beer is a good one to keep on hand when having people over.
