3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
For this review I will pour a little into a taster, and sip the rest from the can. I will provide a side by side comparison of the two drinking experiences except when it comes to appearance, as the can is not see through… From the can the beer pours a crystal clear, amber-orange color with a beautiful head of creamy, medium sized bubbles. The head leaves a lacing of sticky thin lacing that leaves spider webs on the glass. From the glass, the beer graces the nose with a clean, crisp, fresh cut grassy smell with a light biscuit smell wafting beneath the grass and giving a warmth to the nose. From the can, the smell is slightly intensified to provide slight citrusy notes with the grassy hops, alongside slight hints of wet dog and metallic can though those might just be me. The glass has the better smell. From the glass, the beer tastes cleanly bitter with a warming bready sweetness that balances out the beer. Acids are very light in the mouth, only providing a slight wetting to the tongue. From the can the beer tastes slightly sweeter, mellowing the bitters into a more manageable taste. In flavor from the glass the beer begins as medicinal bitters, but quickly blooms into wet, bitter grass with a warm backed biscuit dough and a touch of caramel. The beer finishes grassy bitter with a touch of lemon citrus. The aftertaste is very light with bitter grass. From the can, the taste carries some slight citric lemon from the start, mellowing out the grassy bitters and bringing the caramel malt more onto the palate. Doing this review, I am a little surprised that I am liking the can more than the glass. On the mouth, in the glass, the beer feels on the heavy side of light with a heavier carbonation of fluffy bubbles that blanket the tongue nicely and provide a slight scrub. From the can, the carbonation scrubs the tongue slightly more, perhaps due to the smaller hole. After the beer leaves, the mouth is left slightly damp with saliva. Overall, this beer is quite similar from the can and the glass, which is surprising since I have had several of the cans now, and actually thought it tasted a little different… That being said, this is a terrific simple lager with light complexities that make it interesting, while at the same time inviting you to drink more and more. Boston Lager is nearly sessionable, and is a great lawnmower beer in my mind. A true classic.

bottle 355 mL, poured in lager glass, brown cloudy color with creamy medium head. aroma is mostly malt. medium body beer with surprising intense flavor for a lager, thanks for the bitter ending and refreshing at the same time, not very complex since taste is mostly caramel malt and bread but very tasty. good example of a fine viena

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My go to "airport bar beer"- much more body and character than what I generally get in a lager. Easy to drink and tasty. Hits the spot during the inevitable flight delays :-)

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper-golden pour with a dull, pale white head. Bitter, sour, and powdery on the nose. Soft mouthfeel with average carbination. Toasted malt and a soured flavor with a bittering hop profile.

I has a decent head, soapy white lacing, the aroma is mild malt and honey. The taste isn’t great, fairly bitter that isn’t balanced out but still easy, sweet tasting beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Birra discreta che non offre moltissimo al naso, ma che in bocca è abbastanza scorrevole. Caramello, suggestione di lamponi ed un bellissimo finale americante, erbaceo. Scorrevole ed esile,non ha troppe bollicine, forse qualcuna in più l’avrei gradita. Sicuramente la miglior lager mai bevuta.
