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.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2017 No matter how many years later and all the new craft beers Sam Adams Boston lager always tastes good. Excellent balance, session able, great alone or with food. Always good on tap a widely available go to beer. Edit: bumping up even more, it just never gets old. The quintessential Vienna Lager. On tap, at a bar, this is the perfect beer.

In terms of beer for me, kind of expensive, but worth it. I like this stuff. Nice taste, Has a full body with some hops. One of the few beers i have had i can distinguish hops and malt. Good entry to quality lagers.
