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.

Bottled and On tap. This a classic American Lager. Many run of the mill beer drinkers view this beer as a delicasy, while Ive never see its appeal. Pours pale brown with a watery presence. The aroma and flavor are above average. Despite the mass producing the hoppy bitterness lingers well on the palate while subtle flavors of rice, wheat, and tea leaf are present. Much better on tap but still not something I order regularly despite its crisp finish.

So very middlin...I enjoy these only if the other selections are somewhat sparse. Not a bad beer...I still enjoy them...but there are so many other ways to go.

Definately full bodied, not a pale lager by any means. Nice white head that quickly fades but leaves nice lacing throughout the beer. Hoppy floral aroma and taste with some nice maltiness in the background, A bit too hoppy for a lawnmower beer but 99.8% of the time were not mowing, are we?

If you cant appreciate this beer, your nose is too high in the air. Had this today while watching football. Had a bowl of Chili and its taste shifted to a fruit-like quality Ive only experienced with Bells beers. Entry-level craft style beer.

Third from Boston Beer Company. Again, very impressed, an almost nutty taste, very enjoyable, citrus after taste. Not bad for $9.99 a 12.

bladerunner17 (6) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2005 does not count
Bottle: Aroma is a bit orange tilted, appearance and flavor the same, what is up with that aftertaste? Heavily mettalic aftertaste that takes a long time to fade. After first sip aftertaste overpowers the palate and the rest of the bottle as well.
