Pours a deep brown with minimal tan lacy head. Aroma is subtle, mostly sweet caramel with some roasted malt. Taste is initially sweet with a bitter finish. Each successive sip gets a little more bitter and a little more displeasing. Palate is light with little carbonation. Overall an interesting beer I may have to try again in the future.

On nitro at the Fenway location. Arrived at the table a clear red with a creamy cream colored head that lasted through mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt along with a bit of caramel. The flavor is again malt and caramel followed by some mild hops bitterness. Smooth on the palate no doubt attributable to the nitro push. Medium bodied. Enjoyable.

On tap at Lowell Beer Works, 25 October 2009. Handsome. Very red. Not much head. Mainly fruity malt aroma. Slightly roast with a hint of chocolate. Full mouthfeel. Strong malt. Fairly dry. Hop presence is low but, clean, dry and tasty with a pleasing full mouthfeel.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Tap at the Salem Location: Deep copper pour with a light thin lacing head. The aroma displays apparent diacetyl- butterscotch and caramelized grains dominate. Light body with a macro carbonation to it. Grainy nondescript flavor with a touch less diacetyl than the aroma. Has a late nondescript peppery note and a touch of phenols in the middle. Eh.
