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 worlds oldest hops growing area. Among the worlds most expensive, they cost twenty times as much as other hops.

Pours a honey-orange body with a short head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, malts and a bit of bread. Taste of caramel, malts with notes of bread and grapefruit. Bitterness is mild, but noticable and aftertaste of pine. Medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation.

Rask0lnikov (1000) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2016
Amber colour. Hoppy, bit sweet, citrussy, but somehow arificial aroma. Sweet at the beginning. Citrussy. Hints of peach. Fruity finish. Sweet aftertaste. Something bothers me also in the taste. Fruitiness also seems to be artificial. Or is it some unusual combination of hops? It is also deja vu feeling. Been here, done that... It is drinkable, but second glass would be tough one.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2016 12-ounce bottles in a pilsner glass. Nothing extra special about it, but a good solid beer that is widely available.

Very decent lager: basic, but has something extra in taste and palate compared to any average lager. Does not loose any of its taste with cheese, salty crisps or olives. Perfect for a normal evening at home with some friends and a film.
