3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. Deep golden color with a nice creamy head. Taste of caramel malt and grains combine for a silky, creamy palate. Good carbonation with a dry, slightly bitter, finish. Well balanced. Bready aftertaste. A fine basic lager that is, thankfully, widely available. A real standard.

I admit I don’t like lager - had this SA Boston Lager at a function last night cos it was the best of a shitty bunch on offer - meh, it barely registered on any level but soon disappeared so I’ve marked it accordingly as not shit but won’t go there again in a hurry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12oz bottle into Sam Adams glass
Appearance: A 2" sudsy off white head slowly drops with mild lacing. Mostly clear light amber appearance with tons of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: fresh bread dough is dominate, also a hint of sweetness and some tangy, earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and slick with a crisp, dry finish.
Flavor: combination of the sweet barley/bread dough flavor with floral and citrus rind hops.
Overall: This beer has grown on me as of late. For years I didn’t really care for it, but I have found it more enjoyable in recent months.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in pint glass. Medium-Dark amber color, 4fin of tall foamy bubbly khaki head. Smells of floral hops,
Tastes of hops and oak barrel. Old timey and old-towny, smooth with bitter finish. Pretty good balance of hops, which I always think is a fine quality in a standard brew.
