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.

Tap - Probably the best Irish Ale I’ve had, but that isn’t saying much. Some malt, hops in the middle, and a little sweet at the end. Flavors were muted, beer tasted fresh.

I’ve always found "Irish Red" ales and lagers to be a bit bland but Sam Adam’s does it again, I really liked this. Had a nice malty smell and drank very smooth and had kind of a sweet aftertaste, very tasty . Brick Red is the perfect deScription of the color because it was a deep, dark amber/red color. I really hope this gets marketed and is in stores, it’d be one I’d pick up on occasion that’s for sure. It went really well with the buffalo wings I had.

Crystal clear red in the glass. Malt and caramel aroma on the nose. Mainly malty palate with just a touch of bitterness.
