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.

Draft at Logan. Pours a lightly hazy amber with one finger of bubbly, diminishing, head and seafoam lace. Nose of roasted malt, mild hop - very light pine and grapefruit. Mild bitterness, lots of roast. Sour cream from dirty tap lines

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.

Toasty and not that sweet, actually a quaffable pale ale. Herbally grassy flavor, decent stuff

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Crossroads Beer & Wine, Burlington, MA. Stated ABV is 5.8%. Pours amber with a thin white head; some grassy German-style hops on the aroma; sweet malty flavour; with a light zing from some dusty hops to finish. Pleasant enought to drink, but not what I’d expect from an APA.

Tried the Irish stout. Good head retention, nice stout but not a dry stout. Just a bit sweet to be a dry stout. I’d brew it though.

(draught - Logan) light amber/gold with small white head. Malt/hops aroma. Balanced malt/hop flavor. Very drinkable pale ale if not exciting. More English style than American (except for choice of hops)
