12 oz. bottle, the label on the side of the bottle is notched at best by June 2013. Poured into my Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Somewhat darkish amber color with a nice finger of fluffy draft head. Steady bubbles rushing up to the top. Scattered lacing.
S - Light toasted malts with a very light lemon hop scent but it's all very faint, and there is little else happening here. Some kind of a fruity dark cherry presence buried in there also that I can't place.
T - More smooth, less carbonated, and hoppier than I was expecting from this beer. Lagers usually tend to disappoint me, and Samuel Adams always tends to lean toward mediocre, but they've impressed me here.
M - Well-balanced, well-bodied, sweet fruit sugar aftertaste, & some sticky bitter hop lingerance.
Overall, the simple yet highly drinkable inaugural brew from Samuel Adams. Definitely recommended for people who enjoy Lagers and perhaps even for those who don't. Not the most exciting of all beers brewed by The Boston Beer Company, but definitely one you'll want to revisit every now and again.
Samuel Adams Boston Lager ---4/5.

A good American beer right here. Marvelous appearance, bold golden hue- love at first pour. It smells great. Outstanding, four stars. Yeasty American lager smell. This lager beer has an impressive taste, much more going on here with a impressionable, strong mouthfeel and taste. It lingers in your mouth as a reminder that this is not your typical domestic budweiseresque lager. Of all the lighter beers or lagers I have tried, this is one American classic I can always depend on as a quality go to brew.
