When reviewing a lager something to keep in mind is the fruity and complex flavors we look for in ales, whether they're IPA's, stouts, american pale ale, browns, ect. should not be present in a lager. Dunkel, helles, doppelbock, pils and schwarz are all lagers and therefore the most prominent feature in taste should be a clean malt profile; the trademark of a good lager. That being said...
Samuel Adam's Boston Lager pours with a decent two finger head (into a Samuel Adam's glass) and has brilliant clarity and substantial amount of carbonation. The color is a lovely amber/medium caramel and has good lacing.
Pretty mild on the nose but does have nice noble hop aroma and a pretty well defined sweet toasted malt aroma as well.
The beer is slightly sweet and has a great malty flavor with a slight toffee finish. A great session beer and it's availability makes it a great alternative to the BMC versions found everywhere. Highly recommended, especially if you know someone that is a novice when it comes to craft/specialty beers.

330ml bottle. Stange glass @ L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Amber color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, thin but lively crown. Crystal malt, lager yeast, floral aromas & resinous hues. Toasted flavor & arising bitterness at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Clean bitterness & dried mouthfeel rounded by spicy touch. Subtle honey & lemon-tea hints linger into a long bitter finish. Mild toasted notes on the aftertaste. Refreshing & easy drinkable !!
