12oz Bottle

Pours a perfectly clear golden with orange hues. Mild carbonation bubbles. A 1 finger white head sits a top the body but fades quickly to a thin topcoat. Leaves drink lines with each sip that fall back into the body. Looks good.

I like the smell of Boston Ale. It's soft and subtle. A mild doughiness along with a floral quality. Some lightly toasted grains as well.

The taste isn't quite as good as the appearence and smell. Starts off harsh and biting. As it warms it transitions into more of the dough and floral qualities that are in the smell but the initial taste is just a turn off.

Mothfeel is brisk and a little abrasive. Prickliness that is somewhat bothersome.

Drinkability is average but nothing more. If you gulp this one down enjoying the smell occasionally it's not so bad. Otherwise the mouthfeel and taste are off to drink more than one at a time.

This is a disappointment. It started out nice with the looks and smell but went downhill from there. I'll no doubt be passing on this one in the future.
