Having on draft at The Avenue.
Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark copper color with good clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Creamy, caramel, toffee, hops, bready, and fruitiness.
Taste: Same as above with some lingering bitterness and chewy notes. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, low to medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little chewy, and easy to drink.
Overall: Pretty solid amber/red ale. Very enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint Glass."
A: Nice dark amber red with hints of orange and brown. Significant head, little lacing, nice appearance.
S: Wheats, malts, lots of hops. Kind of a sweet caramel on top.
T: Initial flavor is standard for an amber, but it has a significantly large hoppy bitterness. Sweet caramel notes and lots of good roasted malt. Significant bitter aftertaste.
M: Smooth, crip and not too rich but drinkable.
O: Not a bad selection. It's a Boston Lager with more hops. Quite a nice, flavorful beer that's full of malt, caramel and hops. Solid B+.
Serving type: bottle
