Sampling with now on 11/17/14 with dinner. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a Samuel Adam's Boston Lager pint glass.

This isn't their original 'Boston Lager' at all as the label is different as well as the brew. This 'English Pale Ale' style brew pours a pretty clear copper-amber in color with about a 1/2 finger white head that settles down to around 2mm after a while. A decent amount of lacing is seen when sipped that sticks to the glass. The aroma is very pleasant and is of grains, biscuit, with a hint of caramel also. More going on with the taste with a hint of fruit (dark?) also. Finishes just a tad dry but good. Actually, wasn't sure how this brew was going to be overall. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Overall, it was good and probably even better on tap.
