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
