haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 30, 2014
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.

Barreras (1180) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours a cola brown color with a heavy malt smell. Taste is full of malt and a tinge of sweet molasses. Taste is bready, with a mild earthy flavor. happy I tried this beer while at the Cheer’s Restaurant in Boston.

lag91 (55) - Milton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2014
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.

berkshirejohn (5025) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014

smcolw (567) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 29, 2014
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.

Draught at Cheers in Boston. This is a simple straightforward ale without much going for it.

9/17/2011. On tap in Boston. Copper to red-brown color with a tan head. The aromas show caramel, malt, bitter hops and spices. Medium carbonation with caramel flavors. Finishes with light hops.

ScipioA (376) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2013
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.

Draught@Joe’s, Boston. Copper color, off-white head. Nutty, even smoky aroma. Smooth, nutty flavor with a hoppy finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice.
