Rating: *** (7 of 10)

Comments: Susan picked up a mix-pack case of Harpoon Brewery beers so all I’ve been sampling a wide selection of beers from my favorite Boston brewery this week (sorry Sam Adams).   This is their flagship brew.  This beer has a good consistent caramel-amber coloring, a strong head, and good level of carbonation.  The scent was a bit musty, but the flavor is delicious.  It’s a nice balance of fruit, nuts, caramel, and malt with a yummy aftertaste.
