3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Cambridge Common in Mass 01.12.2013. Red-amber pour, whispy head. Nose and palate both have light hop profile; easy drinker with a non-grainy texture to it, which is nice for a red.

Amber pour. Aroma is sort of malty. Flavor is toasted malt balanced by hops. Smooth pour like a dry stout. Okay.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Watch City, Waltham MA, 5 November 2009 @ 4.4%. ABVs here seem to be all over the place - often different on the pub beer list from the Ratebeer figure and sometimes from the figure on the Watch City website too. Reddish amber colour. Modest head for nitro pour. Smooth and handsome but low on taste and body. Inoffensive but very average.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at brewpub. Pours a deep amber with some brown highlights and a small, tan head. The aroma is some malts and some spicy hops. The flavor is very mild - some bready malts. Not much going on here. The mouthfeel is almost flat - I think CO2 would have been much better than nitrogen here. Overall, an under-flavored Irish Red Ale - the weakest brew in the line-up on the day I was there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a deep red hue that leaves a thick tan head. The body and color is beautiful on this red ale. The aroma is very weak, I can’t make out alot of the flavors in this red ale. Some slight caramel, a citrus background but not much going on here. The taste mimics the aroma, watery not much going on in terms of flavors besides the citrus slightly sweet finish. The description on the menu says "this beer goes great with food". I can see that if you don’t want a beer to compliment your food and to just stay in the background which could be the intention. Overall a weak offering from Watch city

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap-pours a creamy tan head that laces, although laces is an understatement, it’s more like wall covering on the sides of the glass. Color is red . Aroma is faint malt. Taste is medium malt, some hops, mild carbonation. Takes on the characteristics of a cask, I then found out it’s nitrogen pushed.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On nitro at Watch City, 8/31/2005 with Duff. Very thick, off-white, creamy head sits well-retained, of course, on top of a rusty auburn and copper body, light cloudiness to it, though it settles fairly clear. Aroma is very difficult to discern. Light yeast, nutty grains, toasted bread and a touch of buttercream. Flavor is lightly buttery, with a sourish sort of element, creamy, mildly sweet malt and some ripe peaches and nectarine like notes. Brown bread finish, more nuttiness and light cinnamon and dough. Consistency is loose, quite watery and ends bland, with a short finish, mostly yeast and lightly astringent acidity. Medium-light body.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap@Watch City Brewing, Waltham, Ma. This must have been served through a widget. Creamy head on top and slight mahgonay/amber. Not much of an aroma, slightly caramel? nuts? Mouthfeel is creamy and bland, slightly sweet, with a nutty character. A bit bland, not a favourite style of mine.
