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.

Belle ambrée, mousse blanc-cassé relativement persistante.
Arôme houblonné citrus, puis caramel.
En bouche douce en caramel avant de s’affirmer en houblon avec une bonne amertume assez durable. Carbonation moyenne. Très bonne Lager.

I’m not going to say this is a bad beer. But it is HIGHLY overrated. To say it is a craft beer is kind of a joke. While it is good, and better than the standard domestic beers in the US, it is by no means comparable to any microbrew beer I have had. It has some hoppiness and some flavor/complexity to it, but, again, doesn’t compare to any true microbrew lager.

Pours bronze with a white head. An earthen taste of malts, with a tinge of bitterness. A very pleasant beer to drink, would try this one again.

Pół-przejrzysty, ciemno zloty kolor. Biala piana na jeden palec, tworzy lagerowa obraczkę. Jęczmienno- trawiasty aromat, plata sie karmelowa slodycz. W smaku slod jeczmienny i leciutka, ale przyjemna goryczka. Cytrusowy finisz, za mocno nasycony. Dobry lager.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Boston Lager is rapidly becoming my beer of choice when there is a limited beer selection at a restaurant.
Aroma- a great hoppy aroma
Appearance- a great yellow color, clear and a great off-white colored head
Taste- A slightly hoppy flavor that has a hint of malt a little bitter that makes this very enjoyable for me.
Palate-a medium bodied beer with a moderate carbonation.
Overall- a good Vienna lager, I was slow to come around to this beer but I am glad that I have.

I recall liking this more several years ago...still much better than the mass produced industrial swill, but nothing special. What gets me, however is the marketing nonsense about Jim Koch personally selecting "the world’s most expensive hops that cost 20 times as much as other hops." Total BS.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 330ml. Pours clear, dark bronze-brown. Head is short foamy and almost white. Aroma is sweat of light malt and caramel, very typical of the style. Mouth feel is tangy with nice bitter-hops tickling on tongue and medium to soft carbonation. Texture is watery to oily with a very light body. Flavor start slightly sweat of caramel and light roasted malt, then overcomes by nice, not too strong, hop bitterness. Flavors are of bitter herbal hops, slightly citrusy, very slightly sour. Quite good balance with some layers of flavor, but the overall flavor combination is very boring and lacking in complexity. Leaves a bitter-sweat finish which is slightly unpleasantly sticky. Its a nice beer for this style, with nothing wrong with it (other then the aftertaste). Can be a great lunchtime, everyday beer, but is nothing special.

Amber in color, grainy nose and flavor and not much else. This is usually my go to if I am out and there is nothing else on tap.
