After the Boston Ale from the same brewery I was hoping that their Lager would be equally as good. Pouring it into the glass it all looked promising as the colour was nice and dark, for a lager.
Then came the tasting and, ye, it's good. In a strange way it didn't seem like a lager at all, maybe more like a mild, sour ale. Mind you this could be my novice mind and taste buds talking. Still, even the bubbles seemed fine and more ale like. Does that make sense?
Anyway, it's a good one. Nice smooth taste with just a bit of bitterness to let you know that your drinking it.
Would I buy it again?
Yes, definitely. Would be good for encouraging Bud and Miller, etc. drinkers to try something new.
