Beautiful Amber color with great aroma and taste. Not overpowering in flavor and is for the casual drinker looking to enjoy a few beers at parties. You can drink these like your typical party beers (Bud, Coors, etc.) but enjoy added flavor with every sip.

It taste like beer. It doesn't have the watery flavor of coors or bud.

This is the beer that popped my cherry into more hop forward beers. I'm a sucker for IPAs now but this is still a solid go to beer. You can't go wrong with a Boston lager. Beautiful look lacing smell taste mouthfeel. It's just all around a great brew. If you are someone who has only had pilsners and other american adjacent lagers and are looking to step up in the beer world toward the hops route. This is a great starter and solid cession brew

I'm a darker beer fan but I like this beer. Will always drink over domestics if it's on tap.
