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 do not generally like lagers. This one is definitely an exception, a little heavy, but oh so tasty. I love this stuff. Easy to get anywhere.. Easy to drink. Full of flavor. Nice full appearance.

Always dependable. I gotta agree with zool...It's always the beer I order when I haven't though about it.

Decent solid beer. Sometimes(depending on freshness) you can get a nice whiff of the hallertau.

Amber in color, nice, big head. Has a hoppy, carmel smell too it. Lots of hop bite in the taste with hints of malty sweetness. I know most folk like this beer, and I think it is pretty damn good, too. But I'm not a huge fan of it.

Not a bad beer, nice color, decent aroma. This is what you pick when you are at a place that doesn't have a quality beer selection. Draft or bottle it is truly a stable choice.

Is it me, or does the consistency vary greatly? I once had a fresh draft in Boston that was so wonderful in hop aroma and flavor. Yet the bottle version seems to age rapidly. Regardless, this is my house beer and always will be.

Tap, bottle, whatever....Great beer, good in the clutch when all they got is bud and miller. oak/peppery finish. Lives up to its rep.

Good lager. Solid. Good appearance, kind of bitter. Good body, nice and easy to drink.

This is the beer I drink when there isn’t anything more interesting on tap. You cannot go wrong with a Sammy. A full flavored lager, it’s got a hint of the hoppy bitterness of an APA but without bludgeoning you with it. Great with dinner or just knocking them back. Great beer.
