Golden clear color with a thin head. Hoppy taste with a sweetness built in. Ok, but not amazing.

The Fenway Pale Ale had a darkish golden color (coppery?) to it. It was hoppy with a strong finish.

Pours amber with not much of a head. Taste is kind of simple and weak. Malty with less hops than anticipated. Not the best Beer Works offering.

This beer holds its own. Bold, but not too distinctive. In general, a more drinkable alternative to the Back Bay IPA, though not as strong. A solid round, all the same.

Draft. Nice hop flavor and nicely balanced. It's nothing outstanding, but easy to drink

From a bomber. Copperish, with a rather thin head. Didn't get very much through the nose, although what was there was decent (it could have been from the atmosphere around me). Fruity, but not too much so. A little malty, a little more hoppy. Finished mildly with light lingering hop flavors.

On tap in Salem: Clear orange with a thin head. Sweet bready malt aroma, Grainy raosted taste that ends sweet. Fairly mild body without much carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask-conditioned Version: The beer is a somewhat hazy copper color. The server managed to get a little bit of a white head on mine. It dissapated rather quickly. Their description while short is rather to the pointand accurate: there is a fair amount of maltiness to this and not much in the way of hops. A little different balance than a typical pale ale, but still a pretty decent quaff!

Tried both cask-conditioned and non. Medium copper color with a white head. Mild hoppy aroma. Crisp flavor is initially
somewhat fruity (peaches) and becomes more hoppy. Fairly strong finish of bitter hops lingers nicely. Body is full but
not overly heavy, and combines with the flavor to produce a very refreshing overall effect.
