A- Lemon notes.
A- Nice light blond color with a light haze. Thin, scanty head.
F- Lemony and mildly acidic. The malts take a backseat, but feel a little muddled to me. The crisp simple flavors I associate with a really good lager aren't here. This may be due to the style and unfiltered nature more than anything.
M- Average body with low average carbonation.
O- The idea of a unfiltered lager is nice and I enjoy the lemon from the hops. It doesn't have the crispness of a really good lager and the body is rather thin. Its a nice beer and I like to see Boston Beer doing things like this. It's tougher to do smaller niche style than to throw a whole lot of spices in a beer and call it extreme. This is a nice attempt at that.
