Tried on tap in a snifter glass.
Medium amber with a thin head and a hoppy nose.
Very solid New England style lager with more body and flavor than you'd expect.
If you've ever asked yourself what Sam Adams Boston Lager would taste like turned up to 11, then this is the beer for you.

On-tap 8/3/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark golden brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, some fruit, lager yeast and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast and a hearty malt character. Then some sweet flavors of caramel and fruit come in. The hops presence is decent and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, decent representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style, but there are other beers in the style that I would choose first.
