Samuel Adams Boston Lager

I was finishing up from modern dance when Vitaly called me up and asked if I wanted to go eat and catch the Saints vs. Packers game. CVP (Charles Village Pub) was packed, and so we went to Ledo Pizza next door.


I wrote: "Not much smell. Either I'm really thirsty or this Boston Lager is good and drinkable. Refreshing. Ok simple. Slight subtle bitterness. Doesn't linger." 9:33 pm


I wrote: "I wrote: "[Monk's Blood]. In contrast the Sam Adams is drinkable and while not particularly special, it is refreshing." 6:59 PM



I wrote: "Meh, I drank half of this Boston Lager and decided not to drink anymore." 4:34PM ET

Website Information:
Complex and balanced with a beautiful hop aroma.

Samuel Adams Boston Lager® is an excellent example of the fundamentals of a great beer, offering a full, rich flavor that is both balanced and complex. that unique flavor is the result of a perfect combination of our signature hand selected ingredients and a traditional four vessel brewing process.

Samuel Adams Boston Lager uses only the finest ingredients including two-row malted barley and Bavarian Noble hops. The sole 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 roasted.

We also take great pride in the Noble hops we use. They’re hand selected by Jim Koch and our brewers from the world’s oldest hop growing areas. Although they are among the most expensive hops, their unmistakable aroma and taste is essential to Samuel Adams Boston Lager. The Noble hop varieties of Hallertau Mittelfrueh and Tettnang Tettnanger add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the taste, and all the way to the lingering smooth finish.

Samuel Adams Boston Lager is brewed using two-row Harrington, Metcalfe, and Copeland pale malts, and Caramel 60 malt, as well as the Noble hop varieties of Hallertau Mittelfrueh and Tettnang Tettnanger. The traditional brewing processes, including decoction mash (a four vessel process) and krausening (a secondary fermentation), allow the large quantities of these ingredients to come together and form layers of complex flavor. Towards the end of the process the beer is also dry hopped using the Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops for an enhanced hop signature in the aroma and finish. The process may be labor intensive but it’s essential in developing the distinct balanced full flavor of Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
