Beautiful deep red color, very clean tasting. My excitement at finding this tap-only beer probably affected my judgment. As for Sam Adams, Iíll probably stick with the lager.

A very good everyday Boston beer. St pattys day and boston go hand and hand, the cold and rain are just added bonuses. I liked this beer, it had a touch of hops.

draft. caramel & copper colored. light caramel malt aroma, bready. Taste is malt driven, caramel malt. higher carbonation leads to active mouthfeel. Decent Irish Amber

On tap somewhere in Boston, canít remember where. Cool idea that itís Boston-only (and only on draft.) Really enjoyable red; definitely a session style ale. A much, much better alternative to Killianís, etc. If itís still around when I get back to Boston, Iíll be having a few of these.

Sampled at Cheers in Boston. A good quality brew. Nothing special but clean and crisp.

On tap at the Sam Adams Brewery, Boston MA, 6 November 2009 (also available at Doyles in case they donít have it on the tour). The tour guide assured me this is a unique recipe available only on draught at a limited number of establishments in Boston itself. Some sort of charity thing going on that I didnít quite pick up on. Described by the guide as an English style ale made with EKGs and the (not so English) Spalt hops. Reddish colour. Tan head. Nice condition. Slightly earthy aroma. Clean and distinctly fruity. Good balance. Not big but well balanced and tasty. As with most beers, this seemed at its best fresh at the brewery (I presume they make it in Boston).

Must enjoy something that I can only get in Boston now that I live here. It is pretty much what you expect from an irish red with that red color and caramel malt. Glad I tried it and I would order again easily.

halfonit (1151) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2009
On tap. Has a clear amber color. Aroma was very light. It was mainly full of malts. Taste was pretty much the same. I was expecting a little more from these guys.
