Samuel Adams "Boston Lager"
Vienna Lager (ABV 4.8%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 5/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear medium amber-brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) white foamy head that was mostly lasting and produced some excellent lacing.

The aroma was very light of grain malts, a floral hop and a cobweb scented yeast with hints of caramel and some spices.

The flavor was little acidic and rather malty with a note of caramel at first and finished slightly bitter-sweet with a nice hop appeal at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration on the taste buds allowing you to enjoy the sweet hoppiness fully.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a lively carbonation.

Overall a nice lager with a smooth flavor. Although a staple in the craft beer world, I had it years ago and it was much better then.
