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.

For such a mass produced beer this is actually quite good. Not much to the aroma to it. It almost taste like your average watery lager but it actually has somewhat of a body and a nice finish. Theres enough hopps to satisify me. Also has a mild sweetness which is nice. As long as a bar has atleast this beer then ill be happy. Nothing at all great though.

descent pour with a amber brown look to it,clear and slight white head . The aroma was light with some hops and malt and a touch of sweet . Not anything to write home about but one of those stable beers you get at a eatery or basic pub.

This is one of those ’memories’ beers for me. I drank this a lot when I lived in CT, so even though it is a good beer, I have an unusually high bias toward it.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2009 Beer of choice when microbrews are not available. Pours amber with a decent taste, very drinkable.

Amber in color,Aroma is slight malt a hint of citrus and all hops. Flavor was all hops as well a complex taste of multiple hops and and underlining barley taste. Strong bitter beer. in a good way. dry, and some bitter in the finish.

On tap at some dive bar. Not too bad I guess. Had kind of a spicy sourdough bread taste that I could kind of appreciate. Better than most mass-produced garbage. I didn’t mind drinking it. I would still rather put my money somewhere else though

Pours a a clear orange gold with solid off-white head. some retention and good bubbles in glass. Nose is dominated by malty bread and slight caramel. Not noticing much in hops but they do come through in the finish of the beer. Highly drinkable and much, MUCH better than most all other large scale American Lagers.

Loved it. Good value for money here. An almost citrus initial taste, but does grow on you. Good colour, and easy head.

Smooth amber color, light head, strong hop aroma. Taste is gently bitter with a mild aftertaste that dissipates a little too quickly.

2.9

Slight hop and malt aroma. Rudy to amber with a medium off white head and no lacing. Watered down hop flavor and slight bitterness.
