Nice and easy to drink. Nice golden, slightly hazy color with some nice head. Smells very faintly of malt, tastes of malt and caramel with a very faint amount of citrus rind hops. Clean finish with negligible bitterness, decent carbonation throughout. Safe but a little boring.

Samuel Adams makes great beer in My opinion. I've never had any flavor I didn't like.

Ahh, yes, Boston Lager, that staple of airport bars that I otherwise generally ignore. Malty but only lightly sweet, with a bit of a hopped punch and a suggestion of lemon on the finish.

This beer disappointed me considering how much I enjoy some other Sam Adams offerings. There is a nice caramel note to the flavor but overall I feel like it's overpowered by an excessive bitterness. The mouthfeel is also thin and watery. Overall, it's okay but not something I'd drink often.
