Tasting Notes and Review for Samuel Adams Boston Lager

The Bottom Line

Boston Lager is Boston Beer Company's flagship beer. It is based on the recipe for a homebrew that Jim Koch cooked up in his kitchen over two decades ago. I'd love to do a side by side tasting between that homebrew and the today's version.

Pros

  • Full Flavored Lager

Cons

  • A bit too sweet

Description

Guide Review - Tasting Notes and Review for Samuel Adams Boston Lager

Boston Lager pours with a short but dense, white head. The body is clear and dark golden in appearance. The nose is full of floral, spicy hops. This continues into the first taste. It has a malty sweetness that finishes with a nice hoppy whack. The bitterness lingers and leaves a refreshed feeling.
