This is a re-review of the Boston Lager.

I had Boston Lager twice before making my original review, but I wasn't very fair. I've had it a handful of times since then -- including once at the Samuel Adams Brewery in Boston -- and my opinion has changed quite a bit. Samuel Adams Boston Lager is worlds better than BMC... no doubt.

It's a beer beer. It looks like a beer. Smells like a beer. There isn't much lacing, (most of the time) and the head dissipates quite quickly. The taste of this though is much, much better and more flavorful than you'll find in a typical lager, like say, a Yuengling.

I love the malty, bready taste -- especially on the first sip. It's distinctively Boston Lager.
