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.

Very good beer I stumbled on while stationed here in Colorado Springs, where itís brewed. The mini kegs you can get kick ass.

True amber with a hint of a head. Light malt aroma. Very Festbier-like character ... caramel, mostly, with a roasty finish.

DuffMan (6901) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2008
Hazy orange amber pour. Moderate head that is rather short lived. Very toasty malty aroma with a soft berry fruit undertone. Beautifully malty. Toasty bread crusts and dark caramel with a subtle sweet stewed fruit note and low bitterness. There is some quality malt in this beer that is the star performer so hop heads may not be very impressed. I loved it.

Tap at brewery. Clear light amber, almost has a honey-like hue. Great little aroma of toffee covered cereal grains, burnt caramel, garlic toast, and slightly herbal hoppiness. Taste is smooth and nuanced and sweet, like an amber needs to be. Caramel, toast, mild herbal bitterness, sweet yet balanced to drink. Bit of toffee throughout, and perhaps some "German-ness" in the malt as well.

RSRIZZO (1855) - 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.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2005
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. Hereís to the end of a good run.

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.

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".

Bottle at Jamesís 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet grain, toast and a bit of hops on the nose. Medium bodied, a bit grainy, toast with some light malt. Toast and some light earthiness. Finishes lightly bitter. Decent enough.

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.
