I have found this at several pubs and restaurants in the mid-cape area (Barnstable Tavern, Scargo Cafe, Chapins). This beer has a deep amber color, is clear, pours with a fairly small but creamy head. It starts off with a taste like Bass Ale but has a more hoppy, spicy followthrough. Carbonation and body is just right. This is a great beer, would be nice to know if is available in bottles.

Draft. Average carbonation with hoppy aroma. Very well finished beer, not overly hoppy or bitter. Very smooth. Clean finish. Will definitely buy again.

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.

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.

Growler. Pours a clear brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, toffee, light roasted nuts. Flavor of rich caramel malt, roasted malt, roasted nuts, light charred malt, bitter earthy hops. Overall a roasted, malty red ale with a nice full body. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Growler acheté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales grillées. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée avec une très faible densité de bulles. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales grillées et d’houblons. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #3890)

GBBF. Hazy amber beer with a few tan bubbles for a head. Palate is quite and dry and a little crisp from the mild fine carbonation. Mild juicy dried fruits, whisper of red berries. Fresh hop spice. All flavours in good balance. Fresh and fruity.

Location: I’ve had this one at quite a few different restaurants/bars around Cape Cod over the years, this rating is from a draft I had on 10/6/09 at a restaurant in Hyannis

Aroma: A nice toasted malty and caramel nose
Appearance: Pours a nice dark amber color
Flavor: Tasty mostly malt, light hop flavor
Palate: Smooth, medium body, easy drinking
Overall Impression: I think this one is a pretty nice draft red that I try to have at least once or twice every time I make it down to the Cape.
