In my opinion this tastes ALOT like boston lager, just in an ale (lighter) fare. A wonderful beer for me especially seeing as my favorite beer is the Boston Lager. Cheers!

Pours clear amber, left a one finger off-white head with good retention. Leaves plenty of lacing down the sides of the glass.

Smells bready, I consider this to be a rather standard 'ale' smell. Hard to put into words otherwise.

Piney hops takes forefront, slightly sweet, with a hint of barley malt for the finish. A little hop forward, but by the time I got to the end of the glass it mellowed out quite a bit.

Medium body, medium carbonation, leaves a bit of residue that sticks around for awhile.

Completely over rated beer. I hate the flavor tastes like soap.
