Beantown was a transluscent brown/copper color with a low tan head that vanished quickly. The lace was decent.The aroma was caramelly and chocolatey with some floral bouquet. The taste was good with elements of caramel, coffee, flavoring hops, and a hint of yeast. Of course it was also a bit nutty. Mouthfeel was smooth and a bit doughy with some sweetness and hop bite. The finish was not what I expected. It was on the hoppy side - dry, bitter, and a little sour.

Serving type: on-tap

Walked into the Beantown pub with a friend while I was visiting Boston on memorial day weekend. This ale was on tap there and the only draft they served that I've never had. Got it in a pint. Brownish in color, descent fluffy white head.

Didn't really pay much attention to the smell to be honest. Upon tasting it I thought it might have been some sort of Pale Ale or IPA because of the hoppyness.

Didn't find out it was specially brewed by Sam Adams until I read yelp. I will say it was a quality brew and that I would recommend drinking it again. Also, noticed that the foam left white ring around the pint as I drank it down, symbol of a quality brew using quality yeast.

3.05/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Very nice looking amber/brown body with a very thin white head that disappears quickly.

S- Not getting a whole lot besides some generic malt. No real sweet notes I usually get in nut browns.

T- Possibly some very faint hazelnut, but mostly just a brown ale malt taste.

M- Light bodied with good carbonation.

O- Not bad, but not a great beer for the style.
