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.

It’s a good beer, but not any thing special. Boston brewing has done what they both best and that’s brewing a good drinkable lager.

330ml bottle at home in Blaendulais as ’Samuel Adams Boston Lager’, 4.8%, BB June 2017. Clear amber, sparkling with a dense foamy off-white head, very full lacing. Aroma is toffee-ish, lemongrass and orange peel. Body is rounded, frothy, soft carbonation. Taste is smooth malt, pithy orange, minerally, more lemongrass, a little woody and a touch metallic in the finish. Very drinkable. Fine. Could easily drink several of these.

Bottle - the imported variety, not the one made by Shepeard Neame! Pours ambery with medium head. Smells pine and sweet malts. Tastes follows. Pleasent bitterness. For a lager beer, I found this one to be quite nice.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2016 Bottle. Pours clear yellowish golden. Aroma is corn, hay, a bit metallic. Body is medium, with a weird sweet bitterness. Palate carries the flavours, but is rather light. As a part of the beer history, quite nice.
