Holy shit, this is such a staple, do I even need to review it?
Poured from a 12-oz. bottle into my standard Terrapin pint glass.
Appearance: Clear copper, one-finger white head. Decent retention and lacing.
Smell: Floral hops and caramel malts.
Taste: There is a certain level of sweetness to this beer that is very enjoyable and perfectly offset by mildly bitter hops. Boston Lager is a beer that manages to taste simple and complex at the same time, and is thoroughly delicious. It took me a while to notice the caramelly malts, but once I did, I wondered how I ever missed them.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, and light, but not too light.
Drinkability: Are you kidding me? This is one of the easiest beers in the world to drink, being flavorful and only moderately alcoholic.
If it isn't, Samuel Adams Boston Lager should be considered a classic. One of the very few easy-to-find beers that is absolutely drinkable.
