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.

Amber color with prefect head. Wonderful malt with hops to balance. Being my gateway to craft beers, this will always be one of my favorite.

I’ve always thought this stuff pretty drinkable for a macro. It looks nice, has a simple but pleasant grain and fruit nose, a crisp finish. Similar to, but slightly better than, Yuengling, IMHO.

Alengrin (1380) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Well-known American amber lager with orangey blonde colour and thick, moussy head; malty and hoppy profile, hoppier than usual in the Vienna lager style, not unlike a classic German Pilsener. Interesting and thirst-quenching.

Amber color. Limited aroma and taste. Used to be a favorite, but does not really compete anymore.

Clear deep amber color, thin white head. Medium body, average carbonation. Aroma of yeast, malt and hops. Medium sweet taste, light bitterness. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OPIE788 (336) - Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle. Golden brown color with a white head. Not a bad beer. Most restaurants that have a terrible beer selection at least have this. light hop flavor with a good malt character.

one of my favourites at the moment, and a good example of the american craft beers that are becoming so popular over in the uk. it has a dry , mildly hoppy taste to it,, it has a slightly citrus aroma, is pale in colour and has a minimal head, it has a lively palate. i never tend to have just one !

Bottle 330ml. Clear light golden-copper with small white head. Sweetish fruity aroma, syrup, notes of honey. The flavor is as the nose, light hoppy bitterness, a bit sour. Dry and clean. Light carbonation. Light body. Sweetish bitter aftertaste.
