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.

Another good microbrewed amber with a low rating from ratebeer, this tasty ale has a good malt presence and decent hop balance to provide excellent refreshment and allows it be quite sessionable. Better than given credit for here.

mrbirmingham (37) - Kansas, USA - APR 18, 2009
Aroma: Malts, Appearance: Pours deep copper with a slight haze. The head is tall, off white and persistent. Flavor: Toasted malts, citrus notes and bready after taste Overall Impression: Easy drinking, almost refreshing. We balance between the malts and hops, both support the other and neither is more pronounced.

drjay44 (2830) - Salida, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a thin lasting head, with some lacing over a clear amber body....nose is of malts and no discernible hops....tastes of roasted malts with a bit caramel....mouth feel is light. Overall balanced and beery, but very light to my palate. There are many better.

DuffMan (7343) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2008
Hazy orange amber pour. Moderate head that is rather short lived. Very toasty malty aroma with a soft berry fruit undertone. Beautifully malty. Toasty bread crusts and dark caramel with a subtle sweet stewed fruit note and low bitterness. There is some quality malt in this beer that is the star performer so hop heads may not be very impressed. I loved it.

Light amber pour with smaller head. Has a sweet smelling malty nose. flavor is sweet as well with just a touch of roast on the finish.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Pours a light amber/gold shade with a small white head. Pretty much lacking in anything that makes beer interesting to me, very subpar.

lb4lb (2569) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Pours a golden amber color. Smell is smooth and toasty and lightly malty. Taste is the same pretty much, and has a light bitterness with traditional amber like maltiness. Medium bodied and carbonation and a decent, drinkable session beer.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Pours an amber/orange, with almost no head. Aroma is sweet and bready like a donut. Flavor is light, but well balanced. Palate is slick and medium bodied. Overall a very drinkable, albeit uninteresting Amber.

Mass transit has a dark-gold color with a light tan head. It has a slight hop aroma that is dominated by malt. It tastes brittish to me, diacetyl is present and is accentuated by toasty malt (perhaps victory malt?). There is a prominent hop flavor, but it could be stronger. Not very balanced, but drinkable. I would reccomend trying mass transit.
