A: Beer pours pale yellow with a one-finger white head that reminds of dishwashing soap foam. The beer is quite hazy and contains some suspended particles that looks a lot like grass...

S: A very feint smell. Has some typical grainy lager notes, accompanied by some sweet cherry flavours as well as a (tiny) bit of hops.

T: A very harsh, unrefined lager taste that leaves a rather silly bitterness at the back of the throat. It has a slight maize beer taste. Hints of hops does come through, along with a burnt rubber taste.

M: Leaves a very soapy feel on the tongue. This is, however, not in an unpleasant way, but not fully to my liking. Very strong carbonation and otherwise water feel.

O: Generally I did not find this to be an impressive beer.

The Lager from Boston is decent. Appearance is crappy....poured a cloudy yellow with no head and no lace. The scent had some corn hint. The taste was bold like a pilsner. The mouthfeel was medium in body with poor carbonation. Overall its ok.
