Samuel Adams Boston Lager
Boston Lager poured a clear, amber color with a thumb width, off white head. The nose is yeasty with some malt and bright, clean hops underneath. The body is thick for a lager, bready with a faint sweetness and plenty of crisp hops in the middle. The finish has a yeasty dryness that is perfect for the body. There was some spooted lace left on the glass.
Boston Lager is an absolute classic for a very good reason. This big bodied lager has plenty of flavor and is extremely well balanced. One of my favorite standy beers.
