Under the name "Harvard Lager" at The Parrish on Boylston. Poured on-tap and served in a true pint, the beer is a bright, pale, yellow-gold coloring with a foamy, frothy, white head of about an inch that clings all over. Aromas of roasted grains, subtle hops, and a touch of floral highlights. Flavors are buttery and biscuity, with floral highlights again, as well as a touch of hops. Very balanced. Buttery and smooth aftertaste, with a slick, smooth finish. Almost creamy at times.

Advertised as Rapscallion Harvard Lager, I presume this is a match.

Decent bar pour leaving a blanket of lace. The color is pale straw with absolutely no haze whatsoever.

Grainy aroma of raw malt. There's also a very unusual white wine vinegar smell that reminds me of making Easter eggs.

Tastes like a typical adjunct macro. Lots of raw grain, a light syrupy sweetness, nearly no hop and plenty of carbonation (with nearly no body).

Poured a golden straw color. The bartender quickly poured it so a large amount of head formed. Smells light like Pilsner malt with a ton of grassy/straw hop notes. The flavor has a sharp lemongrass bite with a large amount of carbonation. Light crisp malt with a slight lemon/citrus tingle. Earthy/hay hop notes take over with a dry and surprisingly sweet/dry finish.
