A: This one pours amber in color with a white head. S: Smells rather bland. Seems to be mostly bready malt with a light floral and grass hop note. Maybe some toasted malt and toffee. T: A very grassy hop flavor. Light bitterness with some yeast and bready malts. Also sort of bland. A very faint fruit note in there somewhere, maybe well call it citrus peel. M: Light bodied with medium carbonation. O: Rather lackluster and unenjoyable pale ale. Id skip this one.

Pretty good, the only minor flaw was that it was slightly doggy smelling at times. Floral, grapefruit peel, tangy, medium bittering, lightly sweet. Medium mouth. Great label. Thanks to Lucky Dog for driving this back.

Not that great. I almost think I got a bad bottle. Its bitter and has a kind of sour aftertaste. Ill drink it again if someone buys it for me, but that it.

On tap at Boston beer works, Logan airport, Boston, Mass whilst waiting for my 747 back to Blighty last October. An amber coloured pour with a reasonable off white head. Aroma of citrus fruit/hops. Tastes of citrus fruit, malty, hoppy, bitter, spice. OK for an airport beer.

Foxbush (1961) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 Coming back from Marthas Vineyrad we stopped in at the Boston Beer Works at Logan airport. This APA was a very clear copper to amber. The head was small and disappeared. The hops bitterness was evident but only some citrus like lemon. Smooth and bitter at the finish with some bitter cherry. Just an average APA nothing special. On our trip in October 2011 we enjoyed the APA again. We raised the marks slightly.

the aroma is both inviting and misleading. The taste is pale ale at first but then a bit of acidic aftermath that leaves me questioing the brew. bottle says 5.8%, which it mostly tastes like. This is a different pale ale that is not too sure of itself. but worth trying.

Pours deep gold into a shaker. Bright white micro head with excellent retention leaves spot lacing as it recedes to coat surface. Resin and grapefruit aromas. Crisp and fruity upfront turning slightly astringent in the lasting bitter resin finish.
