Had on tap at the Bell in Hand Tavern in Boston, right off the freedom trail. Appeared clear, light amber with very thin lace head. Smelled of light tones of citrus and hops. Had a light sweetness first taste with the citrus, caramel and hops and finished with a bitter tone. Poignant feel, sharp yet smooth. Overall a disappointment given the pomp and circumstance of being the official beer of the "oldest tavern in America". Hopefully this was not the premiere beer back in the day of the founding fathers!

Good. Pub exclusive. When in Boston must try. Pairs well with the Sam Adams burger.
