DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Draft at Jacob Wirth. Pours copper with half an inch of khaki head which leaves a little lacing. A bit of malt on the nose. A bit coppery on the tongue. Finishes clean. A bit like a thin cough syrup as a beer.

Had this on tap at the Harp in Boston on St. Pat’s Day. Typical red ale, starts malty but finishes with some hop bitterness. Quality beer and an easy drinker, but not really special.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
On tap at pub Hennessy’s in Boston. Deep red amber ale with an average white head. Not very tasty, subtle touch of sweet caramel, a hint of citrusy bitterness in the finish. Average body. Average beer. VT is not impressed.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2012
Draft beantown pub. Pours clear golden orange amber with tight light white head and some lace. Aromas of grass, pine caramel and light dextrin. Nice piney bitterness, medium high carbonation - a touch of wheaty, bready maltiness lingering through the semi dry finish.

Pours a nice amber color. Tastes pretty malty with some caramel flavors. Decent beer. Only served in Boston so happy to get it while I’m here

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2012
(draught) dark copper with tan head. Caramel malt aroma. Flavor is caramel/bready malt. Solid red ale. I think it’s nice they have a brew you can only get in Boston.

A very good beer. Easy to drink and flavorfull. Can only get it on tap. Sam Adams does it again. :)

Scrapersnbeer (1490) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Served by an excellent bartender at Maggiano’s last night. Slightly doughy aroma, taste is caramel and oddly spicy. Really not hoppy. The strange thing about Sam’s draught, I find it tends to have a doughy/spicy character, no matter which style. The Winter and Boston lagers are like this too. Good idea for local taps only, though.
