3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 This product is a mere shadow of its former self. A sample today showed no hop aroma - a sharp contrast to what it used to be. Whereas yesterday’s Sam Adams was near pilsner-like, today’s Boston Lager is little more than a crisp macrobrew. It got nasty as it warmed - diacetyl or maybe just too much caramel came through, ruining the finish badly.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of hop and biscuit. Deep golden color with a thin head. Starts with malt, then a honey sweetness?, and a little hop shows up. Beats Budweiser hands down. The malt really suppresses the hop, but it is detectable.

It’s still one of the best lagers I’ve had and you can find it just about everywhere now. Pours deep gold with nice white head. Nose and taste is very fruity, nice hop and malt balance. Nose has some floral grass in it. Rated 2/8/2000
