Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass at The Gem diner in Syracuse, NY.

A: Golden brown with tinges of red. Nice lacing on the bottle with good head. Perfect example of the appearance of an amber or Vienna lager.

S: Thick of toasted malts and hops. Some lemon citrus notes with a tinge of caramel.

T: A wonderful balanced lager. Boston Lager is the formula for amber lager in the US. Nice malty flavor, not too sweet, nutty with some hops and a citrus nose.

O: Not the best amber but the quintessential starting point. A classic.
