Beer: Clarke’s Amber
Brewer: (served at) Clarke’s at South Station
Rating: * (5.2 of 10)
Comments: This is the house beer at Clarke’s the pub within South Station in Boston (although I’ve become somewhat distrustful of house beers). This is not a great beer but a decent cheap beer (only $3 compared to $5 and up for the name brand beers). It’s not so much amber as a deep mahogany color. I didn’t detect much of an aroma and the taste is somewhat acidic with hints of a sweet candy flavor. The head dissipates quickly and leaves only sporadic lacing on the glass.
Clarke’s itself seems like a nice place to toss back a pint, fairly busy on a Friday night even though there’s not much else going on in that part of town. After dinner and a couple of beers I hopped on the commuter rail to Forest Hills. Nice!
