On-tap during the 2017 Boston Marathon weekend. Without looking up the style, I wondered if this was a Gose after the first sip. Albeit, nothing out of the park or mind-blowing, but fruity and salty enough with a slight sour presence to notice. I thought it was quite good and enjoyed it. Amount of flavor betrays its lighter feel and body. Might be a proper post-race beer!

Not as much flavour or aroma as compared to the boston lager. Cloudy, short lasting head, good feel. However, not much stands out other than some malt that fades quickly.

Drank this after Boston 2016. Ran a BQ in the heat.

A nice easy drinking beer. Light spice. Wheat. Little fruitiness.

Easy to drink beer. Very refreshing. Lighter bodied.

Decent.

Didn't think this looked or tasted much like a gose. But it was easy drinking and perfect for marathon weekend which it's intended for. The salt is quite subtle and I did not pick up any tartness whatsoever. Still it's a nice easy one to put down and I had more than one.

A complete miss. No sourness /tartness at all. Decent appearance, but an odd viscous mouth feel, very unpleasant. I am hoping I just got a bad batch.
