Central Artery is a Helles Lager that pays tribute to Boston's open air spaces. Though the name Central Artery is no longer used to describe the strip of land that we inhabit on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, to us it rings truer than ever. The conversion of this area into a community gather space has brought together many disparate parts of the city that were previously closed off to each other. Gazing out at the beautiful Rose Kennedy Greenway, we feel so much pride for this central location where events and activities exist in a way the city hadn't really seen before.
Pouring a beautifully striking bright gold color with a creamy white head, Central Artery displays a wonderfully vibrant nose balancing malty aromas of freshly baked, flour dusted rolls and lightly toasted barley with a gentle noble hop profile of dried wildflowers. Cleanly fermented, the palate follows the nose closely with pleasantly sweet notes of kneaded biscuit dough and bread crust. Refreshing and quenchable with a light rounded body, fully reserved level of bitterness and soft, drying finish, Central Artery proudly honors this classic Bavarian style.
