Appearance: Bold amber. playful amount of bubbles. Certainly pours darker than the average lager.
Smell: A little hoppy. Some citrus in there. A little bit of hop smell as well.
Taste: Light but has some citrus notes. The hops work really well in this beer. They're there but certainly keeps the lightness of a lager.
Mouthfeel: Quite nice. Sits will with only a little too much carbonation. A slight lingering harsh bitterness but not too bad.
Overall: The best lager I've ever had for sure. Smooth with slightly more hops than other lagers I've had. Great as a standalone beer or as an everyday beer. For being so attainable this is a wonderful beer. The flavors play into each other very well.

A - Pours a very clear amber brown with a thick two finger off-white head with sticky lacing and decent retention.
S - Herbal notes, with a hops spiciness and finishes with some nice malts.
T - Light and refreshing taste good balance of bitter hops and malty bread. I can't believe this is the first time I've had Boston Lager from Samuel adams.
M - Light bodied with a good touch of carbonation.
