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.

Excellent flavor although a little filling and a little grainy. Aside from those couple minor setbacks its a satisfying lager.

Excellent lager. It could use slightly more malt aroma, but otherwise is a nearly perfect example of an east coast lager. The hops choice is superb.

A pretty good beer, has a sort of roasted flavor, a little bitter for my liking though, but overall pretty good.

Poured and immediately smelled very nice aroma. Nice amber color with a excellent creamy head with.medium bitterness, it had a medium body with slightly oily texture. Carbonation was average with a slightly bitter finish. Nice lacing on glass and kept a nice creamy head till the end. I enjoyed this Lager quite a bit. One of the better Lagers Ive had. Samuel Adams scores another big hit. I will definitely buy again.

bottle 355 mL, poured in lager glass, brown cloudy color with creamy medium head. aroma is mostly malt. medium body beer with surprising intense flavor for a lager, thanks for the bitter ending and refreshing at the same time, not very complex since taste is mostly caramel malt and bread but very tasty. good example of a fine viena
