3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is amber in color with a finger of off-white head.
S: Smells of sweet malt with toasted malt and toffee. There is a bit of grape flavor and sweetness. A light flavor of yeast as well as a very slight nuttiness. Maybe a little bit of floral hop aroma.
T: A nice toasted malt and toffee flavor. There’s some nutty flavors as well as some mild fruit flavors. It’s sort of bitter for an altbier. As with the aroma, there are some grape flavors.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Sort of a weird aroma and flavor to this. Wasn’t the hugest fan, but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown-amber beer with a thick white head. Aroma is quite interesting, minerally with a herbal hop character. A bit of light smokiness as well. Faint cherry and toast and also an earthy resinousness in the nose. Flavour is a bit more straightforward. Cherry fruit, bracing minerally dryness and a faint hint of smoke again. Flavour is well-balanced by noble/herbal hop character. Moderate bitterness with light toast and sweet berryish esters throughout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Fenway location, 7 October 2009. Nice dark chestnut colour. Diminishing off white head. Caramel/toffee aroma. More of the same in the flavour. Just a twist of hop bite. Some residual sweetness. A little too much for me.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at brewpub. Clear copper body with a small off-white head. Very basic harmless caramelized malts. Flavours of all-bran cereals mixed with breakfast berries jam and some wood. Woody hops with almost no bitterness. Short finish leaving only light fruity after-taste. Nothing offensive with it, just very basic and not very tasty. I usually find Altbiers to be very fine session beers but this Beer Works is a beer that needs more work.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Canal Street location - a very nice Alt - dark red with a slight brown tint, and a fabulous, foamy head - just a mild sweetness on it, with a very pleasant dry character, which is great, since so many alts tend to lean toward the sweet end of the spectrum these days - lingering toasty/roasty, crisp bitterness - I like.
