Samuel Adams Boston Lager

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.

Cooter Lager

A very special seasonal lager, brought in honor of the Cooter Festival.

Sierra Nevada Tumbler

As the nights grow cool, the leaves on the valley oaks begin to turn and fall. In honor of this yearly dance, we bring you Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale and invite you to enjoy the show. We use malt within days of roasting at the peak of its flavor to give Tumbler a gracefully smooth malt character. So pour a glass, and grab a window seat to watch as the leaves come tumbling down.

Hibernation Ale

Pours a deep amber color, almost a translucent brown color. Light head and appears to have low carbonation. Good lacing occurs.

Very malty (some caramel and slight chocolate), and somewhat sweet. Contains some dark fruits. Otherwise not picking much up.

Very intense and complex malt. Somewhat sweet, which also contains some of those dark fruits found in the aroma. Has a dark chocolate, caramel, and vanilla complex to it, somewhat dries out in the end. Has a little bit of earthy hops in there too, complementing the malt nicely while still letting it shine through. Very slight nuttiness.

Low carbonation and fuller body makes for a nice combo here. Pretty drinkable for the alcohol on this baby, but makes for a nice sipper.

Haven’t had a lot of old ales as a preface. Enjoyed this one thoroughly though. Complex and full. Would like to see how this beer is with some age on it.

Samuel Adams Winter Lager

Sam Adams Winter Lager is dark copper/amber. The nose is malty and hints of spicy hops. Its head is slightly brown, weak, and brief. The flavor is really rather bland. It has a maltiness to it and a really full mouthfeel. It finishes nicely with a good spicy whack from the hops then lingering malt sweetness. Overall, this is a nice beer. It should pair very well with the rich and spicy foods on the typical holiday menu.
