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.

Paid $8 for a 24 oz of this at a Braves game. Looking back, it definitely wasn't worth it, but it was better than paying $7 for a BMC product. Nice copper color and good malt presence. Decent hop flavor from a macro. It's a step in the right direction for the mass-produced American beer market, but no where near the top.

A better than average American lager, so readily available that it makes a good standby beer when you're stuck eating out at a chain or local tavern. Clean amber color, light orchard-flowery aroma. It seems to have changed a lot over the years, losing some of its character, but I suppose that's an evil of massive popularity. I'm never too sad if this is the only alternative offered to B/M/C, in fact, this is one that got me off the American Standards in the first place.

I was happy to find this offered at the local bowling alley...a nice lager with flavor when all that is offered is BMC! Floral aroma, malty, and hops are slightly present.

Kind of middle-of-the-road, but certainly good. Enough flavor to be thoroughly enjoyable, and a very pleasant golden appearance. I'll definitely drink it again.
