While in Boston, we had to make a stop at the Union Oyster House for chowder and a pint. Draft, brewed by Samuel Adams.
Pours a slightly hazy brown red color, with a creamy tan head. Good retention, thick lace lines.
Malty sweet smell, a little bitterness, nothing too strong but fresh smelling.
Taste is typical of a brown ale, lots of malt sweetness but still balanced with a nice level of hop bitterness at the end.
Medium body, average body, with a crisp finish, good carbonation helps keep the foam.
My go to beer when I am here, although it really isn't advertised or pushed, I am always up for trying the local/house brand.
