3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber color. Moderate head that settles to a thin layer of fine bubbles. Leaves some slippery, spotty lace.
Smells like a well-balanced pilsner; lots of caramel and a touch of hop bitterness.
Far more bitter than the smell would indicate--it dominates the buttery dry malt flavor. The aftertaste is bitter without any of the subtleties of the finer hop varieties. For the style, this has a rich body with an expected level of carbonation. Overall, a very pleasant APA.

"iím gonna have to do some research and find out what hop is the ass hop, or maybe thereís something else going on. slight aroma and flavor of bitter ass. not as prominent as, say, the Jospeh James pale ale, which was wretched and smelled like a fart, but this ainít a good beer either. some pleasant bitterness really the only decent thing going for it. average at best, but really, thatís even a stretch."

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear amber with a thin eggshell head. Crisp aroma is malty with a woody hoppy undertone. Malty flavor is a tad sweet, with a hoppy note to balance. Smooth texture is pleasing, if average. A good one to drink whilst watching the Red Sox play.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Murky orange pour with a really short-lived white fizzy head and then nothing. Melted butter or vegetable oil on the nose, which overtakes any pale malt, yeast, or hop character that was fighting its way out from behind. Light to medium body. Toasted bread in the taste with a somewhat more potent hop character than I get on the nose. For what its worth it tastes better than it smells.

Clear gold with a white head. Doughy malts overtake what might be some nice hops...hard to tell. Carbonation is a bit much. Finishes a tad watery and lightly bitter.

A pint across from fenway park. Even though its named after something red sox, its a nice pale. Good hops and taste, but not over the top.

Aroma consists of grassy hops, like a pils almost. Orange color, decent carbonation. Medium bitterness, bready sweetness. Crisp, hydrated feel. The namesake park serves bigger brands, but this is always available just across the street.
