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.

trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2013
Pours a golden amber color with a thick white head that fades quickly but leaves good lacing. Smells of caramel, sweet malt, and light florol hops. Tastes of all th same thing in the smell but a little hoppier than yor typical lager. Mouthfeel is light and crisp and slightly chewy with a slightly dry finish. Overall not bad, its one of the better craft lagers out there. Has a unique flavor. I dont seek it out but I enjoy it when I get the seasonal mix packs.

darbeer75 (636) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Aroma: malty with a little piney hops thrown in; Appearance: clear light amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: follows nose but has no additional complexity; taste kind of lacking; Palate: medium body with medium finish; Overall: used to be one of my favorite beers but now just seems one dimensional. Okay to drink but wouldnt seek out.

Boring Boston beer? A decent bottle of beer no doubt but nothing special...

VueltaBirrista (58) - Murcia, SPAIN - OCT 21, 2016
Color mbar anaranjado, con espuma blanqusima que dura en copa mucho ms de lo que estamos acostumbrados en cervezas de baja fermentacin. En nariz se aprecian flores, pino y notas ctricas. En boca es agradable y fcil de beber, pero se aleja en todo momento de las lager europeas, o para ser ms justo, de las lager industriales a las que estamos tan acostumbrados. Nos aporta adems de mucha frescura matices ctricos y tostados que le dan ese aspecto y sabor tan notable.

bewyder (450) - FRANCE - OCT 20, 2016
Ambre claire voile, bien balance entre lgre amertume, petite douceur malte, quelques notes fruites et lger caramel, petite touche onctueuse, pour une lager assez aromatique, sans non plus tre transcendante. 50cl la pression au bar La Tte lenvers, Vincennes, France, bue le 19/10/2016.

PlasticSoul (61) - - OCT 18, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2016 33 cl. bottle. Almost clear (slightly hazy) light copper coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly roasty caramel, licorice, floral hops, and dough. Pleasant savory taste is somewhat sweet with following bitter notes. Medium-bodied with creamy texture. Average carbonation with bitter and smokey finish. One of the best lagers available.

MattChiasson (63) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
Out of the can, poured a light copper, clear with a thick persistent white head. Aromas of grainy malt, hay, and spicy noble hop. On the palate more caramel malt sweetness comes through, but well balanced with a dry, refreshing finish. Not overly complex, but overall a nice, well-made lager.

Flasche, in DE gekauft: super Farbe, guter Geruch, feinperlige Kohlensure, interessante Fruchtnoten fr ein Lager, malziger Krper, sehr sffig, hebt sich deutlich von dem Rest amerikanischer Lagers ab, noch besser schmeckt es natrlich in USA vom Fa
