Runabout Recd has good thick head (not so long lasting), and plenty of lacing. The very pleasant malt and fruit aroma is a little bit different than the dry herbal taste. A very sessionable flavor, though: hops are perfectly balanced, and there is enough malt to round it all out. A well-crafted, thoroughly American brew that I very much enjoyed.

A-A body of haze. Amber colored. Mild head. Plenty of lacing.
S-Sweetness is king. Apple juice. Aroma is quite mild. Might it be old enough that the hops have burnt away?
T-Sweet bread and faint hops. Malty, inoffensive and unmemorable.
M-Medium bodied. Softer carbonation. Not really bitter.
O/D-I already forgot what beer this was. Really though, this was a maltier brew with its minimal bright spots.

A: Pours a clear ruby red with a medium-sized tan head. Fades somewhat quickly. Decent lacing on the glass.
S: Quite malty with mainly caramel and bready malts. A little bit of herbal and fruity hops.
T: A little herbal and grassy hops up front with a bit of caramel. Toasted bread in the middle and then fades out with graininess and some tea.
M: Medium bodied, decent carbonation. Not watery at all for 4.4%
O: An unremarkable but decent red ale. Simple and drinkable while staying true to the style. Sessionable for sure. I quite enjoyed it to be honest.

Sampled on tap at the New England Brewfest on June 30, 2012. The pour was a darker amber tone with an off-white head, some lacing, and a ruby red hue if held to the light. On the nose I found a toasted malt character followed by a little fruit and a crisp, clean hop note. The body was light but somewhat acidic or astringent. That had an impact on the flavor I believe as it came in more moderately hopped than I might have expected and less sweet and malty.

A: Pours a typical amber color with a fingers worth of sticky head that retains well
S: Nice and malty, mostly caramel malts with a little sweetness. Not much hop character, but what is there is some earthiness
T: Follows the nose, sweet and malty with mostly caramel and then some slightly earthy hops in the finish
M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick and smooth
O: Not the most complex beer, but it certainly hits the spot and would pair well with most of their food. Definitely should be on the malt-lovers beer list

Typical bottle to pint glass pour.
Pours copper amber with ring of white foam. Tofee malt smell. Caramel/toffee taste with light bittering. Your standard amber/red ale. Smooth mouthfeel.
Just run of the mill - nothing bad, nothing spectacular. Certainly sessionable at a low ABV.

Pours a mild amber with a thick head into my glass that fades not too long afterward. Definitely an amber ale.
Faint hops and biscuit malt in the nose. Bit of pine/citrus lingers from the hops.
Buttered malt upfront with a kiss of hops. Crisp. Chewy. Very easy-going ale here.
Ditto for mouthfeel. Lingering buttered malt with the hint of hops. Very good.
I like this example. Easy to drink and toasty to boot.

At the Great Lost Bear:
In a pint glass:
A: deep yet clear amber colored body, slightly reddish brown with one finger off white head that lasted a good one minute; spotty, foamy lacing leaves rings
S: earthy with some light caramels and some brown sugar, but balanced with added light hops
T: didn't have much hops in the beginning but was definitely noted as the beer went down, malty caramel tasted all the way through
M: medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. It is very smooth and sessionable (nice low ABV) a sixer would be nice in the summer time. It has a watery yet sweet aftertaste and a dry finish.
O: this is a good beer to me and fairly good for its style.
