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. chriso (21656) - 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: 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. Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2009
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. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2003
(Draught) I had this one at the Salem Beer Works. Probably the best tasting brew I have had from the Beer Works.

clear dark amber, fine beige head, thick lace, rich well hopped caramel malt aroma, rich dry caramel malt flavor, touch of chocolate, lots of tasty hop character, very well balanced,
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 13/20
Deep brown-amber beer with a thick white head. Aroma is quite interesting, minerally with a herbal hop character. A bit of light smokiness as well. Faint cherry and toast and also an earthy resinousness in the nose. Flavour is a bit more straightforward. Cherry fruit, bracing minerally dryness and a faint hint of smoke again. Flavour is well-balanced by noble/herbal hop character. Moderate bitterness with light toast and sweet berryish esters throughout. Cybercat (6153) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2014
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. TimE (6130) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 12, 2004
Showed no sign of actually being an Alt and was basically an amber ale and a sour one at that. I drank at the brewpub near the Fleet Center and this beer SUCKED. Obviously others have had different experiences.
