3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The first craft beer I enjoyed, which also got me interested in better beer. I would’ve rated in higher a few years ago however. Pours a golden amber color. Smell test doesn’t pick up to much aroma in the beer bottle, though in a glass, particularly the sam adams glass, the aroma is more pronounced. Taste of bitter hops right off the bat, with a slight sweet malt after, though lacking compared to other craft beers. As a lager it’s very complex, however compared to other craft beers, something is missing, that would make it a great beer. Perhaps a great beer for someone new to craft beer to try.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
One if my favorite standard lager readily available in the us. Surely no where near the class of stronger belgian style ales which are my favorites. However far better than cheap american beers

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. Deep golden color with a rich creamy head. Smell is slightly hoppy. Taste of caramel malt and grains combine for a silky, creamy palate. Good carbonation. Balanced, dry, slightly bitter finish. It’s hard to find fault here. It’s just a fine basic lager that is, thankfully, widely available. A standard.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I admit I don’t like lager - had this SA Boston Lager at a function last night cos it was the best of a shitty bunch on offer - meh, it barely registered on any level but soon disappeared so I’ve marked it accordingly as not shit but won’t go there again in a hurry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12oz bottle into Sam Adams glass
Appearance: A 2" sudsy off white head slowly drops with mild lacing. Mostly clear light amber appearance with tons of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: fresh bread dough is dominate, also a hint of sweetness and some tangy, earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and slick with a crisp, dry finish.
Flavor: combination of the sweet barley/bread dough flavor with floral and citrus rind hops.
Overall: This beer has grown on me as of late. For years I didn’t really care for it, but I have found it more enjoyable in recent months.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in pint glass. Medium-Dark amber color, 4fin of tall foamy bubbly khaki head. Smells of floral hops,
Tastes of hops and oak barrel. Old timey and old-towny, smooth with bitter finish. Pretty good balance of hops, which I always think is a fine quality in a standard brew.
