Across from Fenway Park sits the BeerWorks and it's wall of taps. If you're going to see a "RED Sox" game what better beer to try than the Boston Red? I liked it! Full of color, red to burnt orange depending on the light, it smelled like a beer, nothing special there, but had a very drinkable pre-ballgame taste. Here's the thing, when you are about to pay 7 dollars for a Budweiser and there is a place like the BeerWorks right across the street I think anything they pour off tap is going to be more satisfying. It certainly was the more memorable beer of the evening, besides their blueberry(why do they float btw?). The Boston Red may not be the best red ale you ever have but it is certainly servicable and hits the spot on a nice day before the game.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 3, 2014.

The pour is a hazy medium amber with no red hints. A modest head that fades to nothing.

The aroma has a sweet roasted malt character and a semi-crisp hint of hops.

The body is light to medium and somewhat smooth.

The taste has nothing extraordinary to it. There are some sweet malts and a short bitter finish. It feels like a knock-off brand.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A: Red-orange in color, ours with a mild chill haze. The off-white head settles pretty quickly. Lacing is limited to just a few minute spots.

S: Caramel, toffee, bread. Grainy. Fruity raspberry ester. Soft grassy hop backing.

T: Grainy up front. Slightly woody. Lots of toast. Touch of caramel and toffee. Drying. Jab of citric hops. Lemon peel and orange marmalade for an instant. Tobacco. Subtle fruity esters. Dry finish of toast and crust.

M: Medium bodied. Creamy and well rounded. Prickling carbonation. Good.

O: A decent amber ale. Nothing more, nothing less.
