Best before August 2013. Poured into a Samuel Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear amber color with about two fingers of a white head on it. Very sexy lacing.
Smell: Mmm.. sweet malt, with some spices. Trace hops, but they don't come out that much in the aroma.
Taste/feel: Really a sweet ale on the front, but then the bitterness comes in... and it's an odd bitterness. I'm not sure what I mean by that, but it's almost the metallic bitterness that I get in canned beers that have adjuncts. I don't get it on every sip, but when it comes in, I don't care for it that much. The feel on this one is very good... makes this beer super drinkable. Medium carbonation, and a medium-light body with it. After taste is a lot like Boston Lager with crackery flavors. To be honest, I prefer Boston Ale to Boston Lager... I'm surprised it took me so long to try this beer. Really, really nice, and for a super reasonable price.
