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.

Nice pour. Mild aroma of hops. Tastes lightly of hops and malts. Thin. Not too exciting, good lager.

Pours a copper color with sudsy off white head. Malty forward aroma. Malty forward sweet body, very classic SA malt character. Notes: bottles since college

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Aroma hmelja ništa posebno. Okus gorkast kao gorča Češka piva (makar oni koriste neki Njemački hmelj) i ima nešto herbalno. Tjelo dosta vodenasto. Uglavnom očekivao sam malo više sladniji okus. Uglavnom pivo nije niš specijalno.

Et ganske godt øl, passer til det meste av mat. Også behagelig som tørstedrikk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Easily my favorite lager of all time. There is no second place lager next to this one. When I can’t make up my mind about what beer to buy at the store, I almost always grab this one. It never disappoints. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zakupene v podniku peach. Vona sladova. Farba medova. Chut taktie sladova so zaujimavou koncovkou.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 12oz bottle at home. Finally getting around to rating this after years of enjoying it. Clear amber with a frothy off-white head. A little citrus, a little pine, a little roasted malt. Plenty of body and character for this style. Medium body, medium carb. Lingering bitterish finish. Must have been the first legit craft I had, back in the dark ages.

yerffoeg (124) - Dinant, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2018 Une couleur jaune dorée, translucide, avec une belle mousse aérée. Pour une lager, je suis étonné par la richesse des arômes dégagés, légèrement sucrés. Elle est agréable en bouche, ronde et avec une amertume pas trop prononcée en fin de bouche. Une découverte intéressante.

4.7% alc. Vol. Clear Amber color, medium head with medium retention, malty aroma, sweet malty flavour.
