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.

Had this at Old Ye Oyster House.... On draft, reddish in color... Flavor was unexciting, kind of standard red ale, can see why this isn’t available outside of Boston, probably no demand for it...

I was very excited to try this beer when I went to boston on vacation and I was disappointed. The beer lacked flavor and was watery for a red ale. I’ll stick to the original sam adams.

You have to go to new england to savor this beer. It pours a deep red with a off white head and has a great resin aroma and flavor, if your ever in Boston this is a must try!

On draft at the Green Dragon Tavern, Boston during our 2011 New England vacation. A fine session ale in the traditonal style.

another middle of the road beer from sam adams, no real distinction behind this one, just a bland macro tasting beer thats a little amber in color.

On tap at the historic Green Dragon pub in Boston. Pours a clear amber/red with a substantial off white head. Taste is rich sweet toasted maltiness along with caramel and butter. Not too hoppy. Goes down easy; very refreshing. A good session ale. A little like a milder version of Boston Ale.

Pretty standard ale. It’s almost like they used the same recipe in Boston lager but changed it out for ale yeast. Tasty, but not memorable.

A big fan of Sam Adams, I find this falls short. Nice coloring, but little flavor. Seemed like a darker, watered down version of Boston lager.

On tap at The Green Dragon and at the Sam Adams Brewery. Amber Color. Malt aroma. Rich Sweet Caramel Flavor with hop finish.
