This one is on the bitter side. However; the aroma was outstading but the falvor was disapointing. I like the berkshire ale better.

If this is your flagship beer........you have some work to do. Very disappointed . Was recommended by some locals while in Massachusetts. Enough said.

Draft. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, grain, AMD straw, leading to a bitter finish.

22oz from wegmans. The appearance is very white. Lots of carbonation. This smells not great . Someone here said "smells like the train at 3am." Budwiser and urine. The taste is indifferent. Totally indifferent. Rice and water. The mouthfeel is fine. So that’s good.

bnokk (289) - Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2015
APPEARANCE – super light golden color. Very white head dissipates quickly, but laces glass nicely. NOSE – ever so slight hop spiciness (grassy). FLAVOR – very light indeed. Refreshing on a hot day, but not a lot of interesting flavor to it. NOTES – Good replacement for a macrobrew if you want to support the local economy, or get your friend off MCB.

Crisp Clean. One of the pioneers of western mass craft brewing. If you like European Lagers this beer is more than acceptable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 15, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Nikki’s Liquors, 4/6/15

Aroma: The aroma is bready malts, with some herbal and spice notes.
Appearance: It pours an unclear gold-orange color with a sheeting white head and mid-heavy lace.
Flavor: The taste is similar, bready malts, lightly sweet, spice and herbal light bitterness.
Palate: The body is light-medium, fairly clean, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish.
Overall Impression: This is decent. Not something I’d rush out for again, but a decent offering none-the-less.

Stoned99 (726) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: cereals, fruits (orange, grapes?), spices, grass. App: hazy straw with small white head. Taste and palate: light body, oily, watery, light sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: a boring pale ale, not complex, body too thin, not enough bitter, not enough malty.

Light and refreshing, with a strong, fruity aroma but not a whole lot of flavor to go with. Light Amber colored and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Small taste from a can @ Bauer Wine & Spirits. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is slightly fruity malts. Flavor is slightly sweet and fruity malts. Basic, but good.
