12oz bottle, drank it on the ferry from Marthaís Vineyard. Soapy head, bright white head, copper color, plenty carbonated. Beer taste is just okay for an amber. Not very bready, the hoppiness is not distinct, itís kind of confused, long aftertaste, long. Just ok, barely.

On tap in Framingham. This beer surprised me. It was much better than I was expecting. It had a great malt flavor, was very smooth and drinkable with the right amount of hops. Perhaps the best Amber I have ever had.

Surprisingly sweet and malty. Decent. One of their better brews. I would look for this if you are stranded at one of their pubs.

Draft at the Wayne location. Clear red amber body with thin head and light lacing. Sweet malty aroma, very pleasing and got me ready for the taste. Flavor was nice and sweet. Malty backbone and good caarbonation. Well balanced with a little kick to it. Great Amber, and Iím not a fan of Amberís.

Dogbrick (7682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Sample at the Pittsburgh location. This brew is a reddish-amber color with a thin off-white head that lingers for awhile. Thin, spotty lacing. The aroma is mostly malty with a touch of hops. Medium-bodied with a rich malty flavor throughout. Light hops and fruit show up as well. The finish is on the sweet side but has enough hops to keep the tongue interested. Pretty solid overall.

Aurelius (4065) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Fruity, red aroma. Malty, medium bittering. Some west coast hopping. Tangy, lightly sweet, woody, íRedí flavored. Session weight. Clean, but not very entertaining.

On-tap at Framingham. This beer dispelled any ideas in my mind that a chain brewer can't brew a great beer. Rich and malty throughout. Nice subtle hop finish. Just wonderful!
