On tap at the Sam Adams Brewery, Boston MA, 6 November 2009 (also available at Doyles in case they don’t 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 didn’t 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).

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

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Pours reddish/brown with a thin tan head. Smells of sweet malt, some fruit, rosey. Tastes of caramel, toffee, earthy. Decent and the proceeds are going to a good cause.

JK (4433) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Tap at Union Oyster House. Very little aroma but lots of malt in the flavor with some caramel and sweet for the style. This style doesnt have much to offer but this beer does it better than most.

Tap handle says "Boston Brick Red". Pours clear red into a shaker. Tan head with medium retention recedes leaving little lacing. Slight caramel aromas. Crisp yet full with caramel and bright pit fruit. Slight hops to the finish. I don’t believe this version is 9.9%....

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013
Location: Draft at Doyle’s, 7/9/13

Aroma: The nose is caramel and fruit with some hop notes as well
Appearance: Dark caramel-reddish color, clear and clean, with a beige head, and mid-plus lace
Flavor: It has a medium sweet flavor, some clean hop notes, and a mild bitterness
Palate: It has a medium body, a nice, creamy feel on the mouth, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: I thought that this was a pretty tasty red. It came off as a bit more sweet than hoppy, but it stays fairly close to balanced.
