On tap in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a light beige head. Aroma of caramel and cereal malts plus a good amount of hops. Flavor about the same with a little spice. Average texture. A decent beer.

Had this one on draught in South Chatham, Massachusetts. A very nice, simple, malty red. Nothing complex about this one. Great after a day on the beach.

Not a bad beer by any stretch of the imagination, just not a wholevlot of imagination in this one. Pretty typical middle of the road amber ale

brian60625 (742) - Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Pint draft at British Beer Co., Falmouth, MA. This beer suffers from a poor combination: heavy bodied and little taste. There’s a little of that red maltiness in there, but it’s not as robust as I had hoped.

On tap at the British Beer Company’s Hyannis location. Pours a caramel ruby amber with a medium sized white head. Toast and malt, light grain on the nose. Toast and grain, crackery and grainy. Light caramel and toast, more grain. Soft easy bitterness on the finish.

MaBeer1972 (1360) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2010
On tap at the Lobster Pot in P-Town. Came in with only minor lacing around the glass. However, the aroma is nice and the flavor is good any malty with low to moderate carbonation. A very smooth drinking amber. Just my thing! - I can’t wait to get down to the area again to pick up some more.

Zymurgeist2 (1078) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Pours a maple brown/red with a white head that collars. Lots of sweet malt on the aroma. Malt in the forefront gives way to a balance of malt and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is zesty carbonation.
