A - A beautiful dark beer, clean, low amount of bubbles. Mine had a thick head (~3 fingers) which left little residue on the glass, but looked beautiful after pouring.
S - Very mild; nothing particularly strong.
T - Bright, hoppy (but nothing like an IPA, obviously). Slightly crisp, very clean. Complex, with a mild taste of pine, and notable caramel malt. Eminently drinkable; this makes a decent beer to just taste, but can easily be a volume drink.
M - Very nice. Just thick enough to swirl around, thin enough for easy drinking.
O - My first experience with Boston Lager was years ago, before I'd become accustomed to hopped beers, and I didn't like it. Well, tastes change, and after downing my fair share of pale ales and trying a number of beers, I decided to give it another try. I was not disappointed. The hops are clearly present, but really just introduce you to the rest of the beer, instead of overpowering it. Behind that, the mild amount of malt and the rest of the flavors come through cleanly.

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 !!
