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.

Nice amber color, hoppy aroma and a sweet caramel flavor make this one of my favorite beers by Sam. Thick offwhite head and stick to the glass foam that always beckons for another.

Pours a lighter amber/dark hone. Nice cream-colored head. Initial taste of mikld hops with a caramel finish. Hoppier than I remember. A nice nutty smell as well. Always a good alternative on draft when theres no other micro or craft brewers available. This beer does a lot by introducing something decent to the masses.

Bottle - Slight aroma but not remarkable. Large head with the Light amber color to the beer. Was a bit bitter and acidic, did not suit me to well. As much as I wanted to actually like this beer it just doesnt do it for me.

Pours a dark copper or amber, depends on how you look at it. Has a medium bodied head. Smells of your typical Malts. has a sweet full bodied taste thats not too overpowering. Not really that memorable.

Aroma cítrico, um pouco adocicado. Cor dourada, pouca espuma e bastante bolhas, que permanecem subindo por toda degustação. Amargor na medida certa e retrogosto frutado. Deliciosa, uma das melhores Lagers que já provei. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quite nice! Some butterscotch and maltyness in aroma. Small sweetness and light bitterness to finish up.

Bottle: Has an amber colour. Aroma is bready. A nice domestic premium lager, but aftertaste left something for me to desire.

Boring yet not gross. Part of me would take a PBR any day to this stuff but if you have been handed one you cant really object. Mostly malt with some fruit or other "outside" favors detectable. Would never purchase of my own accord.
