Terrible. It's just a watered down lemonade.

I never thought the words "Blue Moon tastes better" would ever come out of my mouth.

I was online the other night, like every night, and came across some site claiming to have the top 100 craft-brews to give a taste. To my surprise, Sam Adams Boston Lager was mid-pack, claimed to the OG craft-brew. The next night, I was at dinner and gave the OG Boston Lager a go and was refreshed and surprised by how much I enjoyed it compared to prior tastings. My brother, however, got the Cold Snap... Said it was good, so... I picked it up the other day and here I am

12 oz. Bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a hazy golden honey colour with a nice, fluffy, off white head. Good on looks.

S: A slighty spicy peppery wiff with a secondary honey vanilla sniff across the nose. A faint citrus of the orange variety comes across last of all. Overall, you really have to search your senses to pick up any strong notes on the nose, pepper hits you first--in an indifferent kind of way.

T: Feels a bit watered down. The flavour profiles come across after the initial hit of a rather soapy watered down effect. Not much spiciness on the tongue. Nothing remarkable really.

F: It has that watered down soapy feel, which for me, is never a good thing. Overall the feel is okay. Just nothing to make me wanting another. Mild heat in the chest after it all goes down, which is always a nice winter warming feeling.

O: I'd stick with the Boston Lager before I picked this one out again. There are plenty of Witbiers and plenty of winter ales to try, this is just another notch on the belt.
