Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. This beer is a dark amber color and produces a nice, long lasting head. The taste is very hoppy, in fact more hoppy than I like. I hate IPAs, but I'd thought aid give an IPL a try. I don't hate it as much as the IPAs, but I'll stick with the original Boston Lager next time.

Pours a clear light copper with over a finger of head that lingers for a decent amount of time. The nose is mildly hoppy. The malt profile is present, but relatively light in character. The hop bitterness is present on the finish. This is basically SA’s classic Boston Lager with a little less malt and a little more hops.

12oz bottle poured into a pils glass
A: Pale orange with a one-finger head
S: Pine & citrus rind initially with caramel & malt as well
T: Burnt malt, not nearly as fresh as the nose
M: Medium-bodied with pleasant carbonation though a bit burnt/bitter
O: This has a lot going for it, I'm just not sure why the palate tastes burnt given the rest of the beer is decent, but that makes me not a fan
