Reddish copper color with not much head. Smells like sweet Carmel and slightly toasted malts. Taste very similar to the smell but has a fruitiness to it possibly some type of Apple.medium light body with medium carbs. Overall it's just an ok beer

I like to get this occasionally at restaurants since I live in Boston. Can't get in bottles or cans, only on tap in/around Boston. Very solid beer.

On tap. Pours a clear, dark copper. Aroma is very malty. Completely malty actually. I was unsure of the style or couldn't remember it. Smells of caramel, bread and soft roast. Flavor is the same.bread crust and toffee. Devoid of hoppiness, even as a subsidiary flavor. Has some fullness to the feel at a relatively low ABV.

A very good beer, highly drinkable and you can keep throwing them down smoothly. Surprisingly light for a red beer, taste close to regular Sam Adams but better.

Great red, it's unfortunate that you can't get it outside of Boston.
