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.

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.

Sam Adams lager is a very good beer with a nice flavor. Slightly sweet and roasty, but also has a nice hops kick to it. The only down side is that it can be rich and is not always easy to drink too many of these if that’s what you are into.

I can’t say enough good things about this award winning brew. it’s a wonderful session brew and I love to enjoy it when I really want to experience "World Class Beer". Pours beautifully in a mug with a strong head and heavenly aromas of malt and biscuit. It has a thick mouth feel that is very serious "REAL BEER". I think of this brew as the Flagship of American Beer for all of those people who think Budweiser Water is the king. Grab on to one now and experience Real Brewing Craft. It won’t let you down!!

One of the finest lagers available with an interesting mix of hops and the sweet malt is also given some well deserved space.

Maybe the best lager I ever tried, and surely the only one I will never get bored. Balanced, fresh, tasty but not sticky... For cap collectors: dark blue cap with the same imprint "Samuel Adams. Boston Lager" as the label.

Deep golden c olour, with a rich creamy head that never seems to vanish, lots of lace. Smell is floral, hoppy, (not surewhich hop is used, but smells a bil like marijuana). OK, I’ve seen Noble Hops in another review. Caramel and grains. Silky creamy palate, good carbonation. Taste of caramels, malty, grains. Hoppy bitter finish.

Just a great beer. Don’t let the "beer snobs" dissuade you from trying this beer because it’s so commercially available, you’d only be missing out. I understand why they brew so many other beers, many seasonal, each year but they’ve already hit a homerun with this brew. If you haven’t already, try this beer!

Purchased in bottle from a supermakret in Hong Kong. The apprearnce is attractive, with clear amber and copper colour, and with smooth white head, look like color of ale than typical lagar. A delightful mixed tatse of malt, pine and caramel, slightly sweet but natural.
