Oktoberfest Flavor of the Week

Samuel Adams

Sam Adams bottleSamuel Adams Boston Lager: There's nothing quite like the taste of Samuel Adams Boston Lager. With its high amounts of flavorful Noble hops and malted barley in perfect balance, this beer provides layers of complex flavors to enjoy.

Samuel Adams Boston Lager® is an excellent example of the fundamental characteristics 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 its 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.

Sam Adams also takes great pride in the Noble hops they 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.
