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.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2005
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.

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 (3334) - 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.

jigglyjock (161) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Pours a honey golden brown with a creamy slightly brown/white head which does not dissipate quickly and does not lead a craters. A smokey plum nose. It tastes like a smoked ale’s little little cousin. Has a dull water weak hoppiness with a sweet accent. Has a medium body making the flavor linger shortly.

BeerandBlues2 (9446) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Pours light amber. Floral malt aroma. The flavor is a light roasted malt with a bitter end. Mild palate.

Eddieboy (2) - USA - OCT 6, 2004 does not count
Smells a bit strange like dirty socks, but taste was pretty good. Sweet and fruity almost like you’re drinking a sweet white wine. Color is a nice apricot amber. No bitterness, but a light acidic fruity finish.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Clear copper appearance, decent head formation. Light malt, doughy, grainy aroma. Smooth, sweet malt palate, light caramel and cookie dough, mildly hoppy, citirc innthe finish. Pretty light and simple but I could down a 6-pack of this pretty easily.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2004 This has the taste of toasted bread with burnt edges in the malts and a pleasantly hoppy finish. Body is almost watery though.
