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.

Clear ruby copper color, light head cover, broad stripes of lace. Taste is fizzy caramel malt that grows a little through the palate, adding a bit of bittering at the finish. Slightly oily texture diminishes from the experience. Too similar to many Sam Adams offerings.

Draught @ Doyles: This one pours a crystal clear coppery color. There is a decent off-white head that left lots of lacing. Nice nose. Caramel malts, a subdued sweetness. Some spicy, earthy hops and a touch of pine. The taste is good. Very clean, well balanced, malty. Slightly dry, bitter finish. Nice.

Middelmatig bier op alle vlakken. Mooie amberkleur, maar het glas laat al meteen zien dat je te maken hebt met een weinig complexe doordrinker. Weinig neus, geen duidelijk aroma. Waterig, lichtzoet, licht bitter.

On Draft at Embassy Suites Boston Airport. Dark Amber color. Aroma is metallic and mouthfeel is rather thin. Very little lacing. It does have a decent flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a amber red with a tan head and lacing. It has a sweet aroma of caramel malt, with the same flavor profile and a not-too-sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
