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.

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.

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.

ScipioA (405) - 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.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013
Location: Draft at Doyle’s, 7/9/13

Aroma: The nose is caramel and fruit with some hop notes as well
Appearance: Dark caramel-reddish color, clear and clean, with a beige head, and mid-plus lace
Flavor: It has a medium sweet flavor, some clean hop notes, and a mild bitterness
Palate: It has a medium body, a nice, creamy feel on the mouth, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: I thought that this was a pretty tasty red. It came off as a bit more sweet than hoppy, but it stays fairly close to balanced.
