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.

A really nice premium lager. The quality truly shines through compared to other crap. Rich malt. A little hoppiness. Still refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2018 Found this on draught at Frank & Benny's in Nottingham. On first sip you could tell this was a higher ABV larger and a lot more interesting in flavour than a lot of higher ABV lagers.

NiklasT (241) - SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2018 Mörkt gyllene. Svag, lite maltig doft. Rätt fyllig. Måttlig sötma för att vara ljus lager. Väl balanserad beska. Klassiker, dock inte riktigt i klass med tyska/tjeckiska förebilder.

motorhate (30) - Kent / London, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2018
Amber colour with foamy head. Malty aroma with a slighty hoppy top to it. Not your average lager and more like am ale in my opinion - not a very good ale at that. Very generic with a quite average flavour. I wouldn't class this as a lager in the true sense, it lacks the lightness and carbonation of a true lager. Reminds me of the old Long Life beer from the 80s.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2018 Thank God for Sam Adam's! A quality readily available beer for when options are limited. Floral, sweet, and enough bitterness to keep me interested. Always a good option
