4.58/5 rDev +25.5%
A cloudy copper offering, thin white natural-looking head with decent stay. Very aromatic with fruity esters, grain, yeast, biscuit and floral in the nose.
Ultra-smooth, thin, light-bodied. Rindy melon (real mellow) flavours, and sweet, but not overpowering. Floral hops and more yeast in the finish.
A solid session beer. Its consistency is of water with flavour, making it dangerously easy to drink. Nice job on this cask ...

Hazy copper, the haze is probably from the semi excessive use of hops in many ways and the yeast flavours are at a minimum so this cask has dropped properly. Nice creamy tiny bubbled sticky lace. Very aromatic of fruity esters, raw hops and bready malt. Real smooth with a good malt foundation, fruitiness perks with flavours of melon, pear and peach. Big wave of hops both in bitterness and flavour hit the palate and seems to linger for a while with the fruitiness trailing along. Certainly a bold and expressive cask ale.

The beer pours a surprisingly vigorous head that is bubbly and foamy and white. The beer itself is a deep and dark copper to a dark ruby. The beer is clear. The beer has a strong malty smell that has a bit of hops. The taste of the beer is similar to the small. The beer has a strong malty taste but the taste is.closer to a sweet taste aith ander taste of toast. Hops are there but they are minimal. Hoppy aftertaste. The feel is medium bodied and smooth with a clean finish. Overall, a pretty fantastic commons and worth it.

Pours a clear amber, topped with a one finger off-white to tan head, leaves webs of lacing.
Fruity and creamy aroma, a touch of snappy lemons and citrus.
Butterscotch taste, tea, herb, lots of citrus and flowers. Malty with a good hop balance, almost like bread with some hops thrown in.
Medium bodied, to the light side, its a very good session beer, it's not hard to drink a few of these.

Served a medium amber colored beer with modest off-white head.
Semll is so light as to be almost non-existant. Some very subtle tones of caramel can be found.
Taste is pleasant. Some rich caramel notes are present along with a litlle bitterness.
A nice easy drinking beer, would be a good session beer.

sitting right @ the bar here, writing the review. about 100 ft. from home plate of Fenway. Anyway, this is on cask tonight. $4.50 a pint. Creamy head & mouthfeel. Amber color, little bit of hoppy smell and aftertaste. Set at room temp. but it's a bit hot for this tonight. Wish I could try other choices,

i think this is my favorite of the 4 i tried, though its score may not be the highest. it came to my table a tall 16 oz. dull copper color. the head was short but consistent. aromas fight a tough battle to free themselves from the slim head
prominent pilsner malt flavor, with a Euro hop flavor. more lively, fruity flavors come from the brewevidence of higher fermentation temps (actually, sometimes big wafts of fruitiness meet my tongue (and my nose))

On tap @ Beer Works Terminal C
Clear mahogany body, tight head with decent lacing-nothin' special but not bad.
Grassy hop texture with bitter malt-pretty tame
Malt comes forward with a sweeter taste than aroma-hops become a little more piney.
Nice mouthfeel - strong malt depth, backbone and finish.
Definitely sessionable but hopefully not here since it's an airport

A: This one pours amber in color with a smallish off-white head.
S: Sweet malt in the form of toffee and bread to begin with. There's a bit of yeast and very faint hops. A few mild fruit esters and some straw and grass notes.
T: Bready malt along with some toast and toffee. Like the aroma, the hops are fairly mild, though there is a bit of grass and straw, maybe a few floral notes. Just a light bitterness to it.
M: Medium in both body and carbonation.
O: The more steam beers I try, the less I like them.
