Comes out of the cask a dark, coppery honey that is hazy to the point of barely translucent. Aroma is strongly hoppy like a good IPA, with hints of malt and fruit. Flavor is hoppy and fruity, with notes of hay and greenwood but scarce bitterness. Texture is fizzy, if rather thin. A good way to celebrate any centennial. yespr (45441) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2011
From tap at the Canal Street location. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty and caramelish. Bitter, slight herbal and crisp hoppy. Dry toasted malt base. Bitter and dry finish. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - OCT 17, 2011
On draft at the brewpub, Salem location. Malty, toasty, lightly metallic aroma, with faint breadiness and herbal hop, very light sweetness here, maybe even some toffee. Clear copper-brown in color, head is fine and slight. Flavor is clean, malty, lightly bready, gently bitter and sweet, more toasty bread flavors, a very gentle hop character appearing at the finish, leafy and herbal. Some light fruitiness showing very late. Smooth and very easy going on the palate, body is light-medium. Actually a pretty nice Alt; I enjoyed it. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 7, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a finger of off-white head.
S: Smells of sweet malt with toasted malt and toffee. There is a bit of grape flavor and sweetness. A light flavor of yeast as well as a very slight nuttiness. Maybe a little bit of floral hop aroma.
T: A nice toasted malt and toffee flavor. There’s some nutty flavors as well as some mild fruit flavors. It’s sort of bitter for an altbier. As with the aroma, there are some grape flavors.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Sort of a weird aroma and flavor to this. Wasn’t the hugest fan, but not bad. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2009
On tap at Fenway location, 7 October 2009. Nice dark chestnut colour. Diminishing off white head. Caramel/toffee aroma. More of the same in the flavour. Just a twist of hop bite. Some residual sweetness. A little too much for me.

A deep red copper ale with a thin light moka head. A pleasant plum aroma, with light vinous notes, and fresh grains. In mouth, nice caramel malt with light German hops, nutty and mineral notes. On tap at Fenway brewpub, Oct. 12 2008. VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Draft at the Fenway Brewpub - Poured a dark reddish amber in color with a medium foamy head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty with a nice roastiness and some spiciness. Flavor is malty with a mild hop bitterness at the finish. Fruity with medium roasted malts. I like it... BREWMUSKCLES (2686) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 3, 2008
fully fragrant and tart this alt is tangy and moderately sweet with nice refreshing carbonation. clear and nicely contrasting in favors and body it finishes mild and clean. the almost floral/grassy caramel freshness and sweetness off the top of a keg was just fine. really good beer tasting day at the Salem beer works here at Salem Mass. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Had this one on draught at the brewpub on Canal Street, Boston, Massachusetts. Dark red pour with a lacy, white head; toasted almond and chocolate malts in the nose, slightly spicey especially into the body, which has a little allspice, grape and apple fruitiness, with some sweet milk chocolate. Nice, smooth finish. Very nice. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Tap at Canal Street Location: Rusty copper pour with a thin spotty off-white head. The aroma is of roasted malt, with a light hint of cinnamon. Light fruity flavor upfront. The mid-palate gives off some sweet bready malt along with a mild spiciness from Euro-hops. The finish has a toasty hint. Decent.
