(BB 10/2) Another beer that has suffered due to the pasteurizer. The beer looks great, but tast cooked. Lots of dead flavors on the palate. A little hop in the finish. A good beer on draft. Lousy in the bottle.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2004 Boston Brewing Company isnt given enough credit. they make slightly above average beers but are able to market them everywhere. Not the best beers, but certainly for the quantity they brew, they do a damn good job. I used to like this beer alot more, but the more I drink it, the more ho-hum it gets. This one is pretty basic, nothin special, good clean lager, especially good on tap. Rerate late 2003. The last five or six times I've had this stuff, it has been awful. Watery, bittersweet and very unexciting. Tastes like an average American Dark at best. No crispness at all. Going to hell in a bucket. Koch should get off his rich ass and make this stuff good again, but that would eat up profit. . .

It’s still better than Busch or Bud, but I’d rather drink a good porter. This is not great beer, but it is not bad beer.

Another enjoyable beer for a summer afternoon of sitting on a porch. It is not one of my favorites, but at least it’s available when the only other beers on tap fall in the catagory of MGD and Budweiser.

This beer is okay. Nothing special. I tasted alot of hops flavor. The beer poured a beautiful orange color. Not a bad beer.

I like this beer, but I can’t drink more than two or three. Bad hangovers, excellent taste.
