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.

[423-20070713] Bottle. Faint wheat and light alcoholic aroma. Golden orange-brown body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Medium alcohol and beery wheat flavour. Smooth medium body. Blended fairly well.

What amounts to the sweetest, cutest little baby of a brown. Respectable for not being pee-colored, but little more than that. If you have to drink something made in giant vats, I guess drink this. Or Blue Moon.

Bottle. Copper colour, nice head. Malty aroma with some caramel seetness. Malty flavour with some hops in the finish. Well-bodied, decent lager.

Pretty all right beer. The aroma is a bit lacking, but it has a nice citrusy flavor that finished rather smooth and clean. A valid option when nothing else is available.

Many 12 oz bottles out in the desert. Cold, wet, with some malts. Nice flavors.

SamGamgee (2585) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 26, 2008
12 oz bottle. Herbal and floral aroma with some bread crust. Pretty balanced flavor with nice malts and spicy hops that leave a touch of bitterness. Clean and well put together, but definitely lacks some character.

Clear and light golden in color ok lacy head. Clean and crisp slightly refreshing. Subtle light flavors and smell of the hops with a slight malt balance.

A great example of an American lager. A beer I will never refuse. Pours a bright golden colour with a large white head. Aroma is faint and fruity, with light malt character all the way through. Taste is full on the palate, not overly exciting, but refreshing.

Better than most lagers, but I fail to detect the complexity that others found. Good carbonation, more malt flavor, but not great.

djones (121) - Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2008
12oz bottle, amber colored. Balanced malt and hops, but i didn’t really find it all that complex. Some caramel flavors. Finishes dry with lingering hops.
