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.

Bottle from morrisons in Horsforth. Lovely malty aroma. Pours flat Amber. Taste not as nice as aroma. Malty finish but arrives very late. Nice enough.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Sieht aus, wie ein Wiener Lager und schmeckt auch so. Was soll man mehr sagen?

jsporrer (1028) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Pours a clear caramel brown with a thin white head. Crisp, clean malty taste with a little hop bite. Fairly refreshing and enjoyable with a meal. Just a slight bitter aftertaste.

Luneylane (193) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - AUG 27, 2016
a bottle from Simple Mart just down the road, drunk at home. Aroma: slighty citrus-like, resinous. Appearance: clear amber, minimal white head. Palate: fairly light, astringent. Taste:bitterness prevails, I don’t get the name ’Boston Lager’. A very refreshing drink, widely available here. I turn to it frequently when I need a change from Jin Pai.

Bottle from bierlinie in Berlin. Pours golden yellow. Smells of hops, apricot and peaches. Taste is fruity and hops, a bit stingy bitter aftertaste. All right.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 Onpa maukas ja jopa hedelmäinen lager. Tuoppi ja olut näyttää hyvältä. Hauska ja viihdyttävä perusolut.

PlutonowyMan (766) - POLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny. Piana bia?a, wysoka jednak niezbyt ?adna, zbudowana ze ?rednich i du?ych p?cherzy przynosi skojarzenia z myd?em, pozostawia niewielkie ?lady. Aromat owocowy mieszaj?cy si? z karmelem i ?ywic?. Po pewnym czasie ca?y aromat owocowy ucieka i pozostaje jedynie karmel. Smak: no có?, w?a?ciwie jest tylko karmel, w tle bardzo delikatne nuty owocowe i ?ywiczne, jest raczej ?rednio. Wysycenie wysokie, troch? m?czy. Uwagi: bez sza?u.

mice (967) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Kirkas kuparinvärinen olut paksulla valkoisella, runsaasti pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu voittaa bulkkilagerit ollen maltaisen karamellinen. Maku myös maltaisen karamellisen makea, mutta loppumaussa yllättää lievä mausteinen ja arominen katkero. Keskitäyteläinen, sopivan hiilihappoinen ja helppoa juotavaa. Lagereissa parhaimmistoa, mutta ei kuitenkaan yllä lähellekään Brooklyn Lagerin loistokkuutta.

Procent (668) - POLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Aromat to trochę karmelu, cytrusów i lekkie nuty leśne. W smaku podobnie, bardzo dobre i czasami jedyne sensowne w sklepie za granicą.
