0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
On Tap At Fenway brew pub. Poured a dark brown with a small head. Had a strong bad aroma. Smelled as if there was a bacteria issue. Taste was very sour, maybe they should call it a belgium brown ale. Could not finish the glass.

Page 70 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and I had this at the Boston Fenway Park location. This might be the best Brown Ale I have had and I even ordered a second one. Only 156 of MJ’s 500 Classic Brews to go.

On tap at brew pub. Not bad but my least favorite of some great beers I tried. A bit sweet and lacking a real nutty backbone.

From the Fenway location - Poured a clear, dark reddish brown in color with a small light tan head. Aroma was of dark roasted malts with a hint of some chocolate and mild of hops. Flavor was slightly sweet with notes of caramel and flowery hops mixed in with the roasted malts. Palate was surprisingly thin, but overall a very drinkable beer.
