yngwie (15194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2015
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

Jow (2670) - New York, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Tap at Logan airport as I board a flight to Dublin so this is very appropriate. Pours nice reddish copper. Nose is faint malt and caramel. Tastes of light malt, molasses, cinnamon, caramel, and subdued pine. Touch watery but clean tasting.

Bulk_Carrier (2679) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was on tap and poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice gentle dark red color with a thin half finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds leaving a nice slightly foamy clingy lacing. The aroma had a nice nutty to caramel smell that was fairly enticing and rich. The taste was moderately sweet but still had a nice roasted nuttiness about it. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it. Also, there’s a nice rich creamy sort of feel running over my tongue. Overall, this was a pretty good Irish Red ale well worthy of having again. I think it would be beneficial to Sam Adams if they started bottling this one.

On tap at Durgan Park, Logan airport. Sweet and creamy aroma with toffee and a citrus note. Clear light mahogany under a white ring. Sweet, nutty toffee flavour with bread crust and medium bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, nutty finish.
