On tap at the brewery. Said to be special but I think out is because is not quite good enough to be nationally released. A but of a rusty taste. Hints of oktoberfest but that might be because of having that one right before this one. Our guide is talking about about their fancy glass I dont have yet, and I am jealous.

Not a lot to say about this one. Medium hoppy red ale. Finish has a kinda weird oily texture that I find off-putting. At least some money is going to charity.

hombrepalo (1800) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2010
On tap at Bell in Hand (oldest taven in U.S.) Boston. Poured a transparent amber color with medium head. Smells like light carmel malts. Taste is similar. A bit on the watery side. Didn’t finish the pint.

Pours red and smells of hops and grain. Smooth going down with a nice bitterness to it from the hops which you can taste right off. The sweet malts are what distinguishes this beer.

Draught in Boston. Tons of toffee and caramel, wth a slightly bitter finish. Drikable but not very nice. Way too sweet and cloying.

On tap @ Sam Adams brewery. Pour is.... well whatdya know.... brick red. It actually is a rather attractive beer with the deep red sitting beneath a creamy khaki head. Almost a shame to drink it, well not really. Aroma is exceptionally fresh and fruity showing berries and light florals with a light undercurrent of caramel and a slight earthiness. Flavor shows the same with some additional graham cracker. Overall body is light to moderate, light to moderate sweetness, and lightly bitter. For whatever reason i’m sure this will be my default Irish red while in Boston.
