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.

I found this beer rather lacking in taste, palate, and flavor. The light amber color was expected, however, its lightness left me wanting a more robust maltiness. Has a finish that was a bit bitter.

Very subtle minty note, with some nutmeg. Amber, slight haze. Malty, with some tartness. Good body, long finish. Amber is not my favorite style, but this is not bad...

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2008
On tap. Poured a light amber color with a thin white head. Light malt aroma, somewhat hard to detect. Sweet malts lead into a nice, fruity (slight citrus and tangerine) middle, and it ends with a biscuity malt taste. Nothing is really outstanding about this beer, it is just a simple beer that is easy to enjoy.

RSRIZZO (1871) - 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.

extremeicon (112) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - AUG 30, 2007
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 I’d drink it again.

Tap. A mild bodies ale with malty taste that gives it a great smoothness. A great ale to enjoy and very smooth. A clean finish.

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 I’ve 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 (10328) - 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 Morgan’s. 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 it’s called "mass transit".
