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.

I love Sam Adams. I truly believe that it’s one of (if not the) top American beers produced. Good tarty flavor. Rich head and amber body. Good at the game or sipping at home.

A good beer for what you can find in just about any grocery store. Was impressed how smooth it was. Definitely one of the better American beers.

People just rave about this beer so I decided it was a must have...2 days later I was wishing I had never bought it. i’ll take it over bud, coors or miller anyday but that’s as far as I’ll go.

A decent lager. Pours golen-brown with a medium white head. Not much aroma, has a nice mild taste, malty, not for people who perfer high IBUS. It’s a very good "drink for the sake of drinking" beer. Beats out the buds and the coors by miles. It goes down clean, and leaves you wanting seconds.

This is a great beer. I first enjoyed this at a workshop where some guys from Maine kept ordering "Sammy" at dinner. I hadn’t had it in a while but discovered it’s available locally so I tried it out again and was reminded of just how good it is.

Pours of deep golden colour with a fair beige head. Nose is a little sweet and floral with some barley. Flavour of barley also with grassy hops and a sour lactic acid finish. I would rather kiss a pig than drink this.

A good overall beer. A malty lager with a good body and slightly low carbonation.

Good beer for a mass produced one. Always a good pick up
