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. Pours light amber with a slight layer off white head. Aroma of roasted malts and slight floral hops. Taste of cheap malts and hops.

Pretty average lager. Nothing offensive or great about it. Aroma is what you would expect. Tastes of a fairly standard lager. Enjoyable but forgettable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille de 355 ml. Couleur rousse avec un joli col blanc. Arôme de céréales brûlés et de pain. Goût de fruits séchés et de céréales avec une légère amertume agréable. Bonne lager.

Sweet, malty, caramel taste with bitter, hoppy twist. For a lager good complexity, the pleasant lingering aftertaste is the best part. A bit heavy on the sweetness maybe. Interesting style for a change but unlickely to become one of my favourites.

Slightly amber pour. Malty, caramel, fruity and hoppy aroma. Balanced bitter sweet. Medium mouthfeel with medium bubbles. Would have this over any other main stream lager.

Clear amber, strong head.

Fruity and malty flavour, some spicy hops.
Fruity sweetness with light spicy and hoppy bitterness.
Some caramel and toffee in the flavour.

Good malty lager.

My personal favorite Sam Adams. A classic if ever there was one. An IPA for the un-initiated. Great on the palate but very smooth. Extremely flavorful but very forgiving. Like an old fiend, patting my on the back. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 One of my favorite beers. Malty sweetness up front, with a hoppy bitterness at the end that isn't overly done. Well balanced. Kudos to Jim Koch!

Rengi ambere kayıyor. Kokusu lager biradan çok ale gibi. Üzüm ihtiva eden tadı orta asitlikte ve metalik. Güzel bir aroma değil.
