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 iím sure this will be my default Irish red while in Boston.

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.
