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.

12 oz bottle. Pours slight hazy orange with a light orange head, quickly disappearing. Malty sweet aroma with a clear raisin note. Sweet malty flavour, mildly floral and bitter. Finish is a soft blend between caramel malt and hops.

Ungstrup (37680) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2003
The aroma is dominated by brewmash with notes of sweet malt. The color is orange and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is a nice malt sweetness with notes of oranges, and a slight bitterness - too slight for my liking. An OK lager but boring for a Sam Adams.

omhper (25160) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2002
Amber coloured. Flowery aroma, medium body, crystal malt character. For a long time this was the only decent American beer I’d tried, as it was the only one available.

3.5
Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Dark golden, slightly hazy beer with a dense and stable head. Fullbodied and extremely aromatic from the hops without being excessively bitter. Nice fruityness. Mostly reminds me of an English Bitter - but this is well made lager.
