12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear lighter brown with a soapy half finger head that quickly disappears. No lacing or head retention whatsoever which is a little odd considering the abundant carbonation. The aroma is on the weak side but has caramel and toasted malt coming through along with a little bit of hay and grass. Caramel on the taste with a little bit of toast, prunes, and grass. It all just falls away so quick however leaving nothing but a light bitterness on the tongue. Extremely disappointing as I was hoping for much more flavor but Boston Lager has more taste than this. Mouthfeel is extremely watery with almost a seltzer water-like feel. Overall, a real disappointment. I had never heard of this brewery but was hoping I might find a hidden gem. Alas it was not to be.

Lovely red-amber ale with a light sweetness, easy drinking and uncomplicated but with a robust enough spicy bitterness to make a statement. Could be a regular favorite if I lived nearby.

Had this beer in Charlottesville, VA at the oldest continuous restaurant in the area, The Virginian. So smooth and good with a great flavor and a beautiful light red color.
