Botella. Color muy bonito dorado oscuro.
Buena capa de espuma.
Aroma especiado, malta y naranja. Muy bueno.
En boca es muy cremosa. Se mantiene el toque especiado y floral con un agradable sabor final lupulado. Muy equilibrada.
Una lager fantástica.

Draft pour pint in the signature labeled Boston lager glass. Pours a dark clear amber with an oily fizz head. Sometimes when I’m thinking about a beer (most of the time that’s the case), I’ll winder what I rated aomething, then I’m completely surprised to learn I never rated. Especially for a mass produced beer that always tasted good to me. I never really knew what it was about this beer. The crisp flavor maybe. How refreshing it is? Very little aroma here, and it comes off as a super light beer, but there is a really good amount of flavor, and it doesn’t get old for me. This isn’t really a beer that I will go and drink a six pack of at home, but when I’m at a restaurant that doesn’t specialize in beer, this is an obvious choice over the competition for me. Good lager. Tasty beer.

Yellow-copper and clear with an average white head. Aroma is grass and sweetish grains. Tastes of sweetish grainy malts, corn and a good amount of noble hops. Very well-balanced and quite flavorful. Still, has a lingering sour bitterness and lacks focus and depth.

American vienna lager brewed by traditional German method. There is used Hallertau and Tettnang hops, which gives it a lovely promising aroma where also a hint of flowers are included. The foam is high and renewable. The taste is malty and surpasses almost to the ale-like. The hoppy bitterness is pleasant and long-lasting. It is a lager which, besides being very kind really, also offers many flavors. This means that you must be vigilant when enjoyed, if you want it all. A star among lagers and yet more proof that it cunningly possible to mix European and American brewing culture.

I had it from the bottle. Say what you will about Sam Adams, this one is still solid. The taste is malt up front and a nice touch of hops. The palate is creamy with some carbonation. It’s quality.

Pretty darn good for a lager. Distinct, well balanced malt and hop notes and goes down smooth.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one has been widely available for so long, I’m surprised that I’ve never rated it. 12 oz bottle pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a big frothy white head that subsides and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is inoffensive, with bready malts, cardboard, and a bit of pine resin. Taste is slightly sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is light to medium with slight carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. One of the better mass-produced American lagers. Still, when I go to a restaurant and this is the best beer offered, I’ll drink coffee or fruit juice instead.

473 ml can from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a
clear amber with lots of billowing white head. Retention is good and it leaves behind a ton of lacing.
Bread, malt, biscuit.
Creamy with average carbonation.
Overall: I’m not a big Lager fan but this is decent. Lots of malt coming through and it has this nice creamy mouthfeel.
