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.

bewyder (463) - FRANCE - OCT 20, 2016
Ambre claire voile, bien balance entre lgre amertume, petite douceur malte, quelques notes fruites et lger caramel, petite touche onctueuse, pour une lager assez aromatique, sans non plus tre transcendante. 50cl la pression au bar La Tte lenvers, Vincennes, France, bue le 19/10/2016.

PlasticSoul (72) - - OCT 18, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2016 33 cl. bottle. Almost clear (slightly hazy) light copper coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly roasty caramel, licorice, floral hops, and dough. Pleasant savory taste is somewhat sweet with following bitter notes. Medium-bodied with oily texture. Average carbonation with bitter and smokey finish. A good lager.

MattChiasson (66) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
Out of the can, poured a light copper, clear with a thick persistent white head. Aromas of grainy malt, hay, and spicy noble hop. On the palate more caramel malt sweetness comes through, but well balanced with a dry, refreshing finish. Not overly complex, but overall a nice, well-made lager.

Flasche, in DE gekauft: super Farbe, guter Geruch, feinperlige Kohlensure, interessante Fruchtnoten fr ein Lager, malziger Krper, sehr sffig, hebt sich deutlich von dem Rest amerikanischer Lagers ab, noch besser schmeckt es natrlich in USA vom Fa

Good one with aroma of American hops and bitter taste, with high drinkability, but without nothing extra.

Beer out of 12 pack fall sampler pack. Very little head when poured. Amber in color and pretty smooth. Little carbonation. One of the better lagers out there. Overall this is above average brew.

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.

kaserov (367) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 15, 2016
Color dorado ambarino, trnslucido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin y se pega a las paredes del vaso). Carbonatacin a tope. Aroma complejo (al igual que el sabor), donde se puede encontrar lpulo (medianamente resinoso, lo justo para que yo lo capte), malta y algo de malta tostada. Si se agita se capta mejor el lpulo. En boca es una delicia. Malta, lpulo (pino, resina), malta tostada, algo de caramelo... Todo muy bien calculado. Una Lager para tomar una y otra vez.
