Draft. I have to render unto this beer its props for being, usually, the best choice you have available in most restaurant bars <i color=CC0011>(and a fine Chicago pizza scarfin' establishment like Giordano's should know better than to use iced-over glasses). Has a nice dark gold color, darker than any megabrew, under the usual lager head. The malt is very evident, almost but not quite a caramel aspect, again better than megabrewed "barley pop." Hop flavor is nicely balanced, bitterness doesn't really assert itself until after you swallow. Many beer fans have kind of a love-hate relationship with Jim Koch, but this is still the beer that makes his rep.
330ml bottle. Pours crystal clear golden amber with small off white head. Nose is brown bread, biscuit, nutty and a citrus zest. Taste is similar with a decent bitterness. Orange peel and a touch of grapefruit too. Nice, not nearly as good as Brooklyn lager though ! jhking34 (10) - - SEP 4, 2017

Sweet malt, corn, and biscuit. Taste is mpre of the same, very malty, and thankfully no skunk. p0urmeac0ld0ne (181) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 31, 2017
a dark, malt-heavy taste and a surprising hop bitterness for a brew carrying the lager tag / style. almost piney and earthy. decent brew. einherjar (409) - Rijeka, CROATIA - AUG 26, 2017
Dark yellow color, small white head. Aroma malt, herbs, mild hops. Taste crisp, caramel, herbs, butter, pine, sour and bitter finish.

Pint from keg at Waxy O’Connors. Strong lager, with good character. Dark yellow colour. kraddel (8582) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2017
Pours clear blonde, small to medium sized head, not extremely stable. Smell is bit crisp, very mild hops. taste is surprisingly full. Very, very much maltaroma. Crisp, bready, even a mild toasty aspect which I did not expect. Veroma , mildly floral, even has some candy sweetness. very drinkable; Good MF and carbo. Holy crap I Did not see that coming ! Very , very good lager. saintbase2 (827) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - AUG 23, 2017

Pours golden and translucent with a 3-finger foamy white head with a mild aroma of pine. Tastes of slightly sweet caramel pale malt with a nice pine floral finish. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Ysok02 (1710) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2017
Robe ambrée, mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez élégant sur le malt légèrement torréfié, des notes épices, du houblon, belle complexité pour une lager. Bouche à l’attaque souple et fruitée, de la rondeur, bulle légère, finale courte mais raffraîchissante. Une belle lager, du plaisir, de l’équilibre et de la buvabilité. Belle bière de soif.
