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.

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.

i’ll 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 don’t think so either. so mass transit, even with it’s nice label, doesn’t 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 i’d guess-- though it’s 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 it’s quenching and has a bit of that caramel goo like you’d find in a milky way bar, along with some nestea bitterness, but the watery feel and utterly passive agenda make it remarkable in it’s unremarkableness. so be warned-- when you climb aboard this hippy van all set to party, don’t be surprised to find everyone tripping out to a skipping record and going: "duuuuuuuuh...."

Pretty poor appearance for an ale. A little grainy, but more graininess than any actually hop flavor. Also had a little metallic taste in the finish. Still, drinkable.

I was pleasantly surprised by this ale. Lots of flavor. Felt full, fruity and yeasty. Hints of belgium, again, very surprising. Finish is smooth, aroma is malty, but fairly crisp and fruity. Decent stuff.

Poured a light to medium and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. I’m not getting any strong aromas but what I do detect are ice tea, flowers and caramel. Tastes of cookie dough, caramel and citrus. Thinner body.

on tap-pours a thin white head. Color is orangy-red. Aroma is malt. Taste is malty-mild, a nice beer.

Manitou Springs, Colorado. 700th beer. Very nice beer, nearing the final legs of a trip jaunting across the great North American continent. In a maritime/cowboy tavern/shanty in Manitou Springs. Flavor is good, all told. Friendly server, though completely absent minded. Maybe her star tattoo on her neck and her flowers or metal tattoos on her wrists were distracting her. Or maybe it was life. Who knows. Here’s to the end of a good run.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Poured this one from a 12 oz bottle. This one pours to hazy garnet/brown color with a thin white head that disapated immediately. Cookie dough and dark red plums. The flavor is full of malts. The initial flavor is smooth and has dark fruitiness. The finish is toasted malts and a light smoke. The palate is a little watery.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Nice head, clear amber color. Aroma is funky with a strange dry coffee smell to it. Taste is a earthy, caramel malt with well balanced sweetness. Finish is bitter but just a tad lacking. Very strange amber but why all the hate? An interesting beer.
