4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - Pour is a very dark amber. I was surprised to see a take on their original signature "Boston" beer turned into an ale. This has a pretty bland aroma but the taste is nice and crisp. Tastes like a typical Boston "lager" even though its in ale. Overall it's a great session choice!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear deep amber with big tan head, nice lacing. Aroma of dried apricot, spice, toast and biscuit, caramel and lemon. Tastes medium sweet and with some sourness upfront, light bitterness emerging after a few seconds. Medium body, fairly high carbonation, a little stickiness in aftertaste. Better than expected: well balanced, very drinkable yet sufficiently complex.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
When I first started getting in to craft beers, this was one I liked a lot. Trying again for the first time in many years. Pours a light brown, but a surprisingly dense white head. I don’t get a lot of aroma in it. A bit sweet with a malt back. Watery.. Has a black pepper finish.
Not as good as I remembered. Besides that peppery finish, there is not much new, or strong going for it.
