On tap somewhere in Boston, can’t remember where. Cool idea that it’s Boston-only (and only on draft.) Really enjoyable red; definitely a session style ale. A much, much better alternative to Killian’s, etc. If it’s still around when I get back to Boston, I’ll be having a few of these.

Clear amber copper pour with fair light tan head. Kinda like a less hoppy version of Boston lager. Or a hoppier version of Killians Irish red. Not something I’d seek out, but drinkable enough.

Draught pint at Stephanie’s, Logan Airport, Boston on 16-Mar-2016. Dark ruby red colour with a thick tan coloured head. Aroma of sweet malt, pine and caramel. Medium to full body and soft carbonation. Bitter with sweet caramel malt and biscuit. Nice balance.

Au Cheers de Boston. Une robe ambrée rouge avec une mousse beige. Un nez de caramel sucré, avec des notes de malt sucré. Un bouche sucrée avec des notes de caramel et de houblon. Un mélange de Rickard’s Red et de Boréale Rousse.

Une rousse trop froide dans un gros bock au Cheers. Mousse et dentelles. Nez de malts toastés avec pointe de noix et contour floral. Goût de rousse irlandaise bien faite mais inintéressante. Corps normal et finale grillée. Bien correct.

Dark red, drank at establishment in Boston. Light head, pretty potent but not a standout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Doyle’s, Boston. It’s clear, dark amber colored beer with a dense, off-white head. The aroma is bready, roasted and lightly fruity. Some bitterness in the flavor, a little fruity touch too, but it’s mostly the malts that run the show. Bread, nuts and some roasted notes, lasting for a while. Easy drinkable and tasteful, but a bit ordinary. 150608
