My first sip was pretty bad. but after a few beers i started to enjoy this New England Ale. You could do a lot worse than this, but I wouldn’t buy again.

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear medium yellow-copper with thick soapy tan head. Nose of old grain, bread, earth, diacetyl. Taste of cracker, light earth, oily body.

Bottle. A pretty good standard ale. More of a session beer than something memorable. Good for summer

Average pale ale. A little malty. Nice strong hop flavor for a pale ale. Overall just an average beer.

On draft at the hotel, enjoyed while out on a family "errand" to go get some milk (which only the bar had). So, having a pint only served cover on not going out to a covenience store, heh. Pour was amber colored, generous head, ok lacing. The aroma was caramel, some tofee, and vegetal type notes. The flavor followed, carbonation finishing the brew with a lingering off aftertaste. Not a great brew, hops not nearly prominent enough. A pretty poor EPA.

Aroma is malty with a tiny hint of spice. Flavor starts out a little on the sweet side with some hop bitterness for balance. Pretty standard stuff, but good and easy to drink.

Im not sure about this one. Ipswich is hit or miss and this one was a miss to me. Tasted of a macro brewery attempt at a craft beer. Very boring and off metallic flavor. sub-par.

A sweet fake candy flavor is all over this weak boring ale, feels like something sam adams would do. Sheeeeeeeeeeeet.
