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.

(12oz bottle, North Carolina) appearance: medium Amber (reddish brown), simple head that dissociates pretty quick, some lacing. Nose: warm, malty, grain, touch of herbs and citrus/orange. Taste: front end is simple malt/beer flavor, followed by some body, fermented corn/grain, fare amount of acidity. Palate: bitter follow thru with hops remaining on the inside of cheeks, oily/clingy, tartness.
Overall: relatively flavorful and complicated lager with good body and bitterness. A solid beer.

I’m getting drunk on a plane. Seven hundred pennies seems a lot to pay for this beer.

I’ve had fun trying hundreds of beers and ales but when i want a nice refreshing lager, i keep coming back to this one. Could be the Swiss Army Knife of malted beverages. A nice ’safe’ choice for parties where not everyone might share your interest in the extreme and envelope pushing projects.

35cc bottle. Pours clear amber color with thick beige head. Pleasant ale-like hopy, floral, caramel, honey and toffee aromas. Complex for a lager. Medium body. Low bitter and malty taste. Not a refreshing type of lager. Liked it

From Taste of America. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not much foam. High drinkability with a pleasant bitterness. I wish Seville’s lagers were like Boston’s ones

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
bought@Bierhandlung Freiburg, shared with Konfuzzi; a thoroughly well-balanced, smooth, easy drinking, sessionable lager. Herbal, citrusy hops in aroma bringing a whiff of Britishness, while being an unobtrusive, elegant counterpart as well as continuation of the fine caramel notes in taste. Dry, clean finish. Great beer. Wonder why its so - imho - underrated here.

Very clear amber color with beige head. Aroma has fresh, floral hops and some nutty malts. Taste starts with nutty and caramel notes and finishes bitter and hoppy. Medium-light body with good carbonation. Overall it’s a very easy drinking and enjoyable lager.
