3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I was feeling patriotic on the 4th so a got a pack of this (it was also on sale, so theres that too)... Has a bit of a macro smell too it, but really nice biscuit hop flavor with a surprisingly creamy palate for a beer of its type. Does a beer get more session than this? I feel like a could drink the whole 6 pack in one sitting. Well, its certaintly not a big deal in the craft beer world anymore, but for me its still valuable because its one of the three main "Thank God!" beers. This is referring to when your at a stadium, lame bar, chain restaurant, airport, or dingy gas station and all you see are crap macros and shitty crafts like leinenkugels, but then you see a boston lager, snpa, or a fat tire you let out an inner ’Thank God!, that was close". Until there is a stone ipa level go to beer in every establishment, we should always be thankful for boston lager.

This does have a cheeky little caramel action to it. It’s not a session beet, but it’s great for when you just want a single beet.

Very disappointing. I’m a Yuengling Lager lover and figured I’d try this. Not what I was expecting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, citrus malt molasses aroma, fruit and malt taste, a bit of mineral fizz, with astringent bitterness at the end. Surprised it is labelled a lager rather than ale. Has a few rough edges though and could be better balanced but okay-decent beer

A great version of an American hoppy lager this is one that Sam does correctly. Easy drinker and always solid. Can say that for sams never beers but Boston lager is a standard

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown appearance. 1 finger head. Malty, dense, some sweet corn and mango. Well, it doesn’t taste great. malty, the hop bitterness is very low and the lingering is just a little bit of burnt sugar.
