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.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Had this beer on 2/26/1999. Color is a rich brown with good carbonation and a ligth head. Aroma is a light sweet malt scent. Taste is rich and smooth. It starts off the a medium body that goes down smooth with a rich malt flavor. The finish is a malty tang and a mild yet sharp bitterness. Its an all around good drinking beer.

Dark amber color with a foamy off-white head. Malty/caramelly aroma. Decent body that goes down quite smooth. Flavor dominated by bready malt with a slight hint of floral hops present. Nothing spectacular but Iíd drink it again.

On tap at the bristol brewing company. Amber body with a sweet malty nose. Dry grain body with a smooth finish.

This is honestly not the best beer Iíve ever had. The hazed amber brown body is topped by a small head. The aroma is malty, but boring. The flavor is ... murky might be the best word for it. It lacks characters and bores with an overreliance on the cystal malts for flavor.

Ratman197 (9870) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Bottle poured a clear amber with a diminishing off white head. Aromas of carmel, bread and toffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, toffee and a hint of chocolate with a smooth malty finish.

12 oz. bottle from Morganís. Drank on 8/20/06. Very clear, dark copper (maybe light amber) Smallish 1 cm. off-white to light tan head. Drops pretty quickly to some light foam. Decent lacing. Aroma - Very similar grainy / cereally aroma to their other beers. No real hop aroma at all. Avg. strength. Flavor - Avg. up front bitterness. Very well balanced with some cereally malt notes. A little bit of sweetness. Palate - Light to medium. Good amt. of avg. carb. Overall - Good beer. I like this one better than the honey wheat or red rocket, but not quite as much as laughing lab. All of them (except for laughing lab) seem to have a similar "house" flavor, from the yeast? So, this beer has a nice balance and good malt character without a lot of hop at all. It goes down real easy and smooth. Great summertime lawnmower / poundable ale. I can see why itís called "mass transit".

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Beer pours ligth orange color with a nicely retained off white head. Aroma is lightly floral hoppy with a bit of biscuity malty notes as well. Flavor is a let down. The hops peter out quite quickly and the cereal maltiness is just kind of there. Not nearly as good as the Amber I had recently at The Covey in Fort Worth.

iíll tell you an amazing thing about this beer-- as soon as i discover one. in truth, this is an astonishingly unremarkable beer. a bit of dried lemon-grass and hot dog buns. sound tasty? i donít think so either. so mass transit, even with itís nice label, doesnít really perform for me. the carroty orange beer has both haze and a galaxy of micro-fine particles-- particles about the size of mosquito brains iíd guess-- though itís hard to get a caliper around just one chunk. the head is fine and the lace dapples like spots on an appallosa, so while it sits fetchingly in a glass, it seems that the ads go on forever, but the show never starts. i mean itís quenching and has a bit of that caramel goo like youíd find in a milky way bar, along with some nestea bitterness, but the watery feel and utterly passive agenda make it remarkable in itís unremarkableness. so be warned-- when you climb aboard this hippy van all set to party, donít be surprised to find everyone tripping out to a skipping record and going: "duuuuuuuuh...."
