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.

tambrico (50) - New York, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Clear copper with a large light tan head that stays around for a while. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey. Light sweetness. Cant exactly pinpoint flavors up front, but I get a hint of cherry on the back end? Havent seen anyone else say that so that might just be me. Decent carbonation. Goes down easy. Pretty refreshing beer. Not bad. Not great. Might be the best lager Ive had so far though.

Nice amber colored beer with good head. A little bit of malty flavors but drinks smooth like a lager should. Pretty good mid level beer.

A great beer staple and good with many foods. A balanced flavorful hops and sweet malt. It doesnt jump out of the glass as the flavors are mild due to the intended balance.

Good. I consider this a standard when you dont want to break the bank on something special. Better than any American Standard.
