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.

Spicey and complex. Has a great thick head till the end. Full bodied with predominant Saaz bite everywhere. Can get overwhealming if drunk over the course of 2 weeks or so. A must try for everyone.

It has a good hoppy taste. It is a good beer to help those who think Bud is great to realize what they are missing.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2003 Sam Adams. I've given every effort to like this beer. Here's my new review. The pic of Sam Adams still looks like a queer.
I poured it. Nice head. Nice amber color. No smell. Boring weak taste. They claim to be as good as imports. Dream on. I'm giving up on Sam Adams.

A good beer to drink but it is very filling. Has a rich, bitter taste. Much better from the tap so if you can get it at the bar, go for it. In Boston, its about $19.99 for a 12 pack so semi-affordable. Great beer to drink!
