3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drinking Stag and Schaefer in St Louis in the 80’s, the appearance of this beer was a godsend. At that time, it would have rated at least 4.5, but tastes have changed. It pours a beautiful brass color with a rocky white head. Aroma is minimal, maybe a little spice. Flavors of smooth malt, peppery and minty hops, evident bitterness, then that nasty metallic lager aftertaste. Still one of the best american lagers out there.

This does have a cheeky little caramel action to it. It’s not a session beet, but it’s great for when you just want a single beet.

Very disappointing. I’m a Yuengling Lager lover and figured I’d try this. Not what I was expecting.

From bottle, citrus malt molasses aroma, fruit and malt taste, a bit of mineral fizz, with astringent bitterness at the end. Surprised it is labelled a lager rather than ale. Has a few rough edges though and could be better balanced but okay-decent beer

A great version of an American hoppy lager this is one that Sam does correctly. Easy drinker and always solid. Can say that for sams never beers but Boston lager is a standard

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown appearance. 1 finger head. Malty, dense, some sweet corn and mango. Well, it doesn’t taste great. malty, the hop bitterness is very low and the lingering is just a little bit of burnt sugar.
