The Noble hops varieties, Hallertau Mittelfruh and Tettnang Tettnanger, add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the flavor, to the lingering smooth finish.

Clear copper with a large light tan head that stays around for a while. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey. Light sweetness. Can’t exactly pinpoint flavors up front, but I get a hint of cherry on the back end? Haven’t seen anyone else say that so that might just be me. Decent carbonation. Goes down easy. Pretty refreshing beer. Not bad. Not great. Might be the best lager I’ve had so far though.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2016 12-ounce bottles in a pilsner glass. Nothing extra special about it, but a good solid beer that is widely available.

Sam Adams Boston Lager is full bodied beer with nice aroma, beautiful amber color, and just a hint of hops. I've found it to have slightly bitter finish.

Good. I consider this a standard when you dont want to break the bank on something special. Better than any American Standard.

A great beer staple and good with many foods. A balanced flavorful hops and sweet malt. It doesn’t jump out of the glass as the flavors are mild due to the intended balance.

This is a decent lager, but it’s still not much to write home about. This beer is pretty much characteristic of a standard above-average lager. It certainly has more flavor than the macros in its class, but I just can’t bring myself to really enjoy it. As for unique characteristics, it goes down a bit bitter, but the finish is abrupt and clean.

Clear Amber color, good carbonation. Some maltiness, and a little hops. A little piney. This was actually better than I thought. I hadn’t had SA Boston Lager in a while, but this was not dull at all. Nice malitness and hop balance. Light to medium body and some dryness.
