COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mass Transit is a flavorful ale that goes down effortlessly. Crystal, carapils, victory and vienna specialty malts give this ale its rich auburn color and mellow taste.

Sampled on 10/5/2012. This Amber Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, caramel and sweet. A medium bodied amber. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Hate to say, it’s an amber alright, nothing less and definitely nothing more. On the positive side this beer does have some nice bready malts and a very nice slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

Pour is clear orange with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some slight soapy hops with a touch of grass, vanilla as well. Taste is a bit sweet, caramel and grainy malts up front, some vanilla, touch of grass, finishing fairly sweet but dry. Fizzy, watery and overcarbonated as well.

Sessionable with woody malty notes. Not too sweet. Well balanced amber ale. Enjoyable on a hot day.

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Tap at brewery. Clear light amber, almost has a honey-like hue. Great little aroma of toffee covered cereal grains, burnt caramel, garlic toast, and slightly herbal hoppiness. Taste is smooth and nuanced and sweet, like an amber needs to be. Caramel, toast, mild herbal bitterness, sweet yet balanced to drink. Bit of toffee throughout, and perhaps some "German-ness" in the malt as well.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2011
bottle pours a golden reddish color with minimal grey head. Aroma of light caramel, some bark. Balanced flavor, lightly hopped on the finish. Caramel and some nutty flavors. Not a bad session.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft @ taproom. Clear copper to amber, warm color, nice lacing. Nutty malt aromas and flavors. Finishing balanced with good malt character. Caramel malts predominate, but finishes crisp with a nice aftertaste.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2011
Amber and slightly hazy. This has a light caramel nose. Slightly earthy, bready with fresh cracked malt. Not bad for the usual amber thing.

danfosha (50) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2011
From the bottle, medium lacing, white foam. Aroma of toast and malt. Some sweetness, light bitterness, faint hints of spice, maybe cinnamon, maybe something savory and herbal, can’t quite place it.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a fairly clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt and yeast with a hint of hops. Smooth and easy to drink. Decent.
