bought and drank in cambridge, ma, november '09.
pours a dark red-brown with decently dense foam. leaves some lace, but not enough. perfectly clear, but just dark enough that you can't quite see through it all that well
smells of caramel malts, spicy hops,
taste is great - well balanced very hoppy red, reminds me a bit of arrogant bastard, but probably because i drank way too much of it at one point in my life.. this is a bit less on the bitter side, more balanced, and better aroma, imo. not quite as intense as AB, but very good. deep crystal malts and maybe a touch of chocolate. good citrus hop presence on the end
a little more thin than i would like, but.. i have ridiculous standards. well done.
definitely keep strong on this for a good time.. delicious.

Gotta love the label graphic - nicely done
Looks like this was bottled about April 23rd 2013, so it's got a lot of age on it now! Bought at the end of last September and mistakenly aged. That might explain why it came across as more of an ESB than an American amber.
Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: Nearly clear dark amber/copper with an inch plus offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Mild caramel malt.
t; First impression is its pleasing silky smoothness, followed by a nice caramel malt and hops balance. Sweet to dry finish. Its 8.65% ABV is well concealed.
m: Medium, silky smooth.
o: A very enjoyable and satisfying ESB-style ale, highly sippable and savory in texture and overall taste. I'd buy this again anytime of year. However I'll need to try a much fresher bottle to confirm this.
Serving type: growler
