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.

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

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.

Suprisingly good beer. Just the right level of piney flavor in it. A little bitter. Goes great with dark breads.

12 oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a nice medium head. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet, with hint of malt and hops. Initial tasting didn’t taste much different than an average lager. However, the complexity of this beer does come out. Starts slightly sweet, but there is a noticeable amount of hops, which lends to a nice bitterness. This brew stands out from other lagers, and in a positive way.

For a domestic beer it is very enjoyable. Sam Adams is usually good for exceptional beer except for the Double Bock. I drank this straight from the bottle in Helen, GA. I wasn’t a fan at first but the taste sort of grew on me.

Prefect balance of hops and malt and excellent malt profile. Caramel and biscuit coffee out in the malt. Clean lager finish and nice carbonation. The mouth feel is a little dry and sudzy,, the only down side.
