Boston Lager is a very good everyday beer. It pours with little carbonation and a thin head, leaving some lacing on the glass. The flavor is of one-dimensional hops. The color is dark gold (not quite amber) and the taste is crisp and refreshing. Sam is a really good macro-micro brew ( a larger brewer who pretends to be small). Imagine 3/4 Sierra Nevada Pale ale, 1/4 spring water. You have a Sam Adams.
