Sam Adams Boston lager is one of my go to brews
Look: darker gold/orangish, not to much head and min. lacing
Smell: peppery orange
Taste: seems like a lot going on but pretty well balanced, citrus upfront
Mouthfeel: complex seltzer
Overall: this brew is a usual for me, would recommend everyone to try, one of the best lagers
