Purchase before April on side of bottle ... bought this before April and it sat in the fridge for a while. Another review of beer acquired via the five-finger discount.
Crystal clear red color, good pooling of lace that retains well, head is rough but appropriate for a lager.
Well balanced smell of both crisp precise hops and bready amber malts. Smells tasty.
Very bready, dextrinous taste. Grainy aftertaste of corn and barley, I like this but it is a little clumsy and many may not (and it reminds me of Miller High Life's finish, for better or for worse). Grains are mitigated by the surprisingly strong hop presence... low alphas that do their job. Not complex, really, but it's a fine lager. Not quite as smooth as it warms...
Mouthfeel is nice, very feisty bubbles but not overwhelming. Dextrins really make this a full-bodied beer that you can almost chew on.
Nothing bad and the simplicity of the beer makes it very drinkable. Combine that with the fact that it's so frequently far-and-away the best beer available at bars and restaurants, and I thank the powers that be for Sam Adams Boston Lager.

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 !!
