A: First off, a green bottle? Seriously?
The pour is a clear reddish-amber with a medium sized fizzy white head. Fades quickly leaving a decent bit of lacing behind.
S: Almost no aroma. A little bit of tea and caramel malt maybe? Super subtle.
T: A little bit of tea again with a little bit of herbal hops. Mild bready malt with maybe a touch of caramel? Touch of grass in the aftertaste? Very subtle flavor to go with the subtle smell.
M: Thin, smooth, inoffensive.
O: Well well well. This beer is not available in MA and I've always heard great things about it so I finally got a chance. Unfortunately it's pretty plain. Very plain. It's about as average a beer as you can get. Very little smell and flavor. I can see the appeal in this, it's better than the typical BMC swill but it's not flavorful enough to be offensive to your typical BMC drinker. So perhaps a good gateway beer? Honestly I'd take any Sam Adams brew over this for a gateway beer, but at the same time I can see the appeal. It's a session brew that you could probably drink a million of, no problem.
