Glass - Pint
A - Coppery colored brew with low-moderate C02 bubbles. It produced a 2-finger head that sorta fizzled away just after pouring. No lacing left on my glass.
S - Earthy and and herbal hop characteristics upfront with a nutty, caramel, toffee malt thing going on.
T - I get a very nice balance of leafy and citrus hop notes upfront, with a smooth caramel and brown sugar malt profile. It finishes with a touch of hop spiciness, extremely low bitterness, and a faint cocoa powder note that really works well with the flavor profile.
M - High crispness with a smooth feel and a medium body.
O - I think this Red Ale is pretty standard in that nothing is wowing about it, and it's a good example of the style. I think the flavors are very balanced, and I really liked that hint of cocoa that I picked up in the taste. So overall it's a very drinkable brew that I'd definitely drink again, but I won't go out of my way to buy it.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a dimpled mug.
The color is a deep orange/gold with a finger of foamy brownish head and some thick lacing left on the glass.
The smell is oaky with some sweet malt flavor that is right behind that nice woody aroma that is right in the nose first. There is a spicy bit of aroma as well and it has a slight caramel flavor.
The taste is big butterscotch and is almost like candy as it comes down. There is some nice sweet honey flavor as well that seems to lay down on the tongue and helps the oak flavor slide down and makes this taste just delicious.
This beer has such a smooth feel that is goes down easy even thought there is a bit of a punch that was not expected. A real jem from Boston Beer.
