Brewery: Boston Beer Company
Beer Style: Vienna Lager
Beer: Samuel Adams Boston Lager
Country of Origin: United States of America
Serving Methodology: Straight from Bottle
Background: Boston Lager is a beer I do not typically partake in whatsoever. It is not a beer I am unattractive to, but by now if you are a regular reader you have noticed that I seek pilsners, IPAs, and the occasional outlier. This is one of those outliers.
Taste & Aroma: The smell here is of straight up malt with a slight whiff of a floral note present. The taste is where this beer shines brightly. The beer’s velvety smooth mouthfeel is matched with the sweet and biscuity malts followed by the beer’s spicy hop finish. This is a fine example of a Vienna Lager. I believe I shall have it on draught next time.
Pending Analysis: As I said, this is not a beer I have frequently. I am eager to explore it further though. I believe it is time to seek it from the tap.
