3.38/5 rDev -2.3%
Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass
Appearance: moderate carbonation, 1/2 inch head, amber in color, clear
Smell: big caramel malt and some earth.
Taste: big caramel with earthy hops in the middleand a bready caramel end
Mouthfeel: sweet start with a big bitter spike in the middle and a sweet end, high carbonation, light body
Overall: Not sure if this is good for a bitter or pale ale. When I was drinking it, I thought sweet amber ale. There is a nice mix, but the malt triumphs. Not out of the ordinary, but nothing to pass over either.

This seems to be the flagship brew, at least the most popular, perhaps because it has what it takes for mass appeal. Better than average in most respects, but it probably won't blow you away. Light brown color with a low head that dissipates fairly quickly. Slight hop aroma, followed by a mellow hop flavor, supplemented with some malt and fruity undertones. Decent mouthfeel, but no real lingering flavors.

Poured a golden semi-dark amber. No noticeable nose or aroma. My first taste was light, not much of a body. No real hop or malt taste, if anything a bit of malt and a hint of caramel and a touch of sweetness.
I am not sure on where I classify this type of beer.
Again with many that I have tasted, nothing fundamentally wrong, but there is also nothing that shines as being outstanding.

On tap in Tolland CT.
A - Amber color, with a cloudy haze in the pint glass it was served in. A significant amount of foam.
S - Very floral. Smells like some variety of baking spices. Kinda funky, but in a good way.
T - Malty right from the get-go. Also a bit of spicyness mixed in. Noto so much sweet as bittery hoppienss. Finishes with a distinctive malty taste as well.
M - Medium bodied, with little carbonation.
D - Very much so. Kinda wish I had this available on tap when I wanted a fresh ESB.

the first thing you notice is the dark red color. This was tasted in a tulip glass and head retension was decent.
the smell was sweet and sugary, some hints of floral in the background. Upon first taste the first thing that you will notice is the Super Lite mouth feel. The next thing you're going to notice is sweetness, a touch of alcohol and some floral notes in the finish.
The light mouthfeel and sweet taste makes you want to have another and finish the glass. This is certainly a session ale, and one has to wonder whether the sweetness is not balanced out with enough bitterness. The bitterness is there its on the palate somewhat similar to a good English ale, but the wet soapy sweet mouth feel craves some balance .
Perhaps balance can be found by paring this with spicy Chinese food or perhaps with dessert. Adding something citrus may be another good idea. I would certainly try this again as it was well above average.

Poured from single bottle (courtesy of Ancona's mix-a-six) into a pint glass.
Dark brown, with reddish hints, very little foam. Some white around the edges. Floral malty smell. Faint licorice/anise smell. Bold malty taste with a robust flavor. Subtle notes of coffee, chocolate, and other spices swirled in. Really solid flavor, I was really surprised at how good I thought this was. Some cola too. Lightish carbination but balanced well.
Really good beer, very drinkable. Will seek out again.
