Golden color. Nice hoppy aroma, dry, flowery. Unfortunately the taste is not interesting as much, quite poor malt and hops, pretty dry.
Amber color. Nice aroma of hop flowers. Pretty nice body characterized by a strong bitterness, holding a long final.

Golden brown colour, pours with a good off white head. Acidic malt nose, some flowery hop. Slightly creamy in mouth. Surprising for an american lager with a good mix of caramel malt and hops. Good balance and dry tangy finish 3.1/5. Rerate August 2012. had al ot of this from France. Good.

Clear dark golden with white head. Sweet caramel, malty and a fruity hoppiness. Decent bitterness. Certainly not the best beer to have come from Boston Brewing, but nice for a Vienna. 150111

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle. There’s malty and some fruity aromas from this golden beer. It pours with a white head. Taste is malt and hops, and they both stay for a while. The bitterness is a bit intense before it fades out. A very decent lager. (050919)

Würziger Geruch, eher dunkles Aussehen. Sehr würziger Antrunk, der allerdings durch den folgenden wässrigen Durchhänger nicht ganz überzeugen kann. Im Nachgeschmack wirds dann dezent malzig, allerdings auch nur eine kurze Zeit. Ab und zu, warum nicht?

Copper brown, decent off-white head. Bready, ryeish, malty, slightly hoppy nose, reminds me about Brooklyn Lager. Cracker malty, rye bread, nice hops in the finish. Balanced lager.

A: This beer is amazingly clear. It is a dark golden color with some nice amber notes. There is a large fluffy white head that leaves great lacing.
S: The smell is better than I remember. Spicy, earthy hops take the lead, with a nice malt background and some light yeastiness.
T: The taste follows the scent, for the most part. The hops are mildly bitter, with a nice orange and spice quality. The malt is quite present and provides a good contrast to the hops.
M: This is a nice crisp, clean lager. The carbonation is excellent and the body is a bit light.
D: This is a nice refreshing lager, and I’m not really a big lager fan. There are good, strong flavors, which is great to see in a world full of adjunct lagers. I don’t drink this beer as much anymore, but it is a good choice if you’re at a restaurant without much of a beer list.
