At Logan Airport. Almost no aroma, some malt. dark red, firm head. Taste is malty with tingling sweetness. Dont know if badly made or just horrible beer style but this one was almost hard to finish.

Nice red, copper color. Little to no head. Nicely balanced beer: more sweet that bitter in my opinion but nice refreshing middle of the road red.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some stringy lace from nearly a non-existent head; Deep ruby color and absolutely clear.
Mild smell--virtually nothing. What I can detect is very neutral.
Far more bitter than I expected. Good malt flavor which means its well-balanced. The aftertaste is short lived. Full bodied with a proper level of carbonation. Overall, a decent Red.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 Draft pour, nice calm beer at the Warren in Charlestown. Dark maroon with minimal head and great lacing. Not much of an aroma, what is there is malt. Tasty though, sweet malts with a dry bitter finish. Good after ambling around the neighborhood, and I’m sure pours of this here at the Warren and all along the Freedom Trail have refreshed legions of tourists over the years.
