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.

330ml bottle. Pours crystal clear golden amber with small off white head. Nose is brown bread, biscuit, nutty and a citrus zest. Taste is similar with a decent bitterness. Orange peel and a touch of grapefruit too. Nice, not nearly as good as Brooklyn lager though !

Pours clear blonde, small to medium sized head, not extremely stable. Smell is bit crisp, very mild hops. taste is surprisingly full. Very, very much maltaroma. Crisp, bready, even a mild toasty aspect which I did not expect. Veroma , mildly floral, even has some candy sweetness. very drinkable; Good MF and carbo. Holy crap I Did not see that coming ! Very , very good lager.

beern (156) - Alabama, USA - AUG 16, 2017
Pours golden and translucent with a 3-finger foamy white head with a mild aroma of pine. Tastes of slightly sweet caramel pale malt with a nice pine floral finish. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

3.9
Ysok02 (1708) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2017
Robe ambrée, mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez élégant sur le malt légèrement torréfié, des notes épices, du houblon, belle complexité pour une lager. Bouche à l’attaque souple et fruitée, de la rondeur, bulle légère, finale courte mais raffraîchissante. Une belle lager, du plaisir, de l’équilibre et de la buvabilité. Belle bière de soif.
