"Based on the amber style, Mass Transit is a flavorful ale that goes down effortlessly. Crystal, Carapils, Victory and Vienna specialty malts give this ale its rich auburn color and mellow taste."

Draft, taster

A – Medium amber with slightly off-white foam. Very clear.

S – Definitely caramel, some light toffee, and baked bread crust. Some fruity esters, apples and light pear. Hops are lightly fruity, slightly medicinal.

T – Slight caramel, light bread crust, some spicy hop flavor and moderate bitterness. Lightly fruity.

M – Moderate carbonation and leans more toward bitterness. Bitter and mildly carbonic. Moderately dry.

O – Malt base is nice but the hop balance seems a bit off.
