Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a nice one finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, grassy hops and faint light fruit. Flavor follows, biscuit malt with well integrated moderate grassy hops, a hint of pear and apple juice, nuttiness. Nice medium body with light creaminess. A very balanced, pleasant to drink lager. Nothing really stands out here, but the whole lager is in perfect harmony. This makes it clear to me how Boston Beer Company got its reputation.
