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.

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.

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.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2004
True amber with a hint of a head. Light malt aroma. Very Festbier-like character ... caramel, mostly, with a roasty finish.

heykevin (1277) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2003
Light hoppy aroma. Malt flavor is harsh and grainy. Hop flavor is thinnish and reedy. Thin bodied, with a mercifully brief finish.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2003
AMber color with a quickly diminished ecru head. Malt house aromas, along with brown sugar and molassas. Starts thick, sweet and malty. Ends thin, bitter, acidic and astringent. Nothing in the linger makes you want to have any more.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Pours a deep amber with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grassy and sweet. Complex malt flavor that is in my opinion unbalanced. This is definitely a brew for "maltmouths".

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 12, 2003
copper color, with an initial head towering above my glass that subsides very quickly. fruity yeast, initial bitterness that subsides to a yeasty woody thin middle with some light finishing grapefruity hops. too thin for my liking

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2007 Bottle (Jul 07 production). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), lightly yeasty (dough, basement). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Poor/dirty aftertaste and a light/dull/grainy aroma. Below average.
