The best lager beer I've ever tasted! I was invited a pint of a dark orange beer, which I firstly thought it was an IPA. Then my friend said that it was a lager. The beer is malty, hoppy and has good after taste! Highly recommendation, especially for lager lovers!

This used to be my everyday drinker, until I discovered Old Rasputin and every other RIS, DIPA or Scotch Ale, years ago. I went out for a burger last night, and Sam Adams Boston Lager the best thing they had. I guess I had forgot just how good this beer was.
