4/5  rDev +17%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Amber color with a nice white large bubbled heading that disintigrates to nothing. NO lacing to speak of.There bubbles that rise from the dead throughout.

Smell is slightly bready followed by a slight fruitiness.Subtle hoppiness.

Taste caught me off guard very hoppy and bitter right off the bat. Followed by a subtle toastiness of bread that suits the hops very well.

Mouth is very alive on the tongue great mouthfeel of bubbliness that turns to a nice tasty hoppy aftertaste. Medium bodied.

Drink is nice and bubbley. Very easy to enjoy a few of these.

The shocker of the bunch.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

This would be a good replacement for someone who likes SamAd Boston Lager. It is a little sweeter up front, a little more hoppy on the finish, but it is pretty dang similar to SamAdBL to me.

It's a little light on mouthfeel, as you'd expect such a crystal-clear brew to more highly carbonated.

Overall, I give it a 3.25
