drowland (6671) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2012
11/14/12. 12oz bottle from the ever gracious lukaduke! Hazy golden pour with a small khaki head. Light fruit, yeast, and pale malt in the aroma. There is a nice malty flavor, but not heavy in the least, with yeast, light funk, and light fruitiness. Light, and goes down easy. This is very flavorful for the weight and ABV and I could drink a ton of this in session style or in hot weather. Nice!

While this was a very nice beer, expected it to be a bit more complex for a allagash house beer .. 12 ounce brown bottle .. Medium foam .. Light straw and boredom, balsa wood and light yeast too .. Mild mouth, quick finish .. Too dumbed down .. . . Country music sucks

mathieuc (1957) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Thanks to tom10101 for this long time want!! Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of spices, fruits, light cereals and noble hops. Taste is pretty dry and offers some light bananas, flour, pepper and is just perfectly balanced. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel so smooth and creamy. Moderately bitter and floury finish. Overall it is almost everything I wished for, I need more!

rodenbach99 (3494) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Une belle robe dorée avec une mousse épaisse. Un nez épicé avec des notes céréalières, une touche de houblon belge. Une bouche sèche, savoureuse, piquante et épicée. Une finale, amère, longue et épicée. Franchement très bon.

SlovakSniper (3709) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Une bouteille bue hier et une autre en ce moment. Cette robe dorée embrouillée est surmontée par une belle mousse généreuse et collante. Au nez, arômes de pain, de levures épicées, de citron poivré et de fruits comme la banane. En bouche, ce sont des saveurs de céréales pâles légèrement grillées, de houblons citronnés et d’épices principalement menées par le poivre. Au palais, j’ai l’impression d’un liquide rendu crémeux par ses bulles très fines. La finale est bien sèche et poivrée. Super facile à boire. Beau produit.

Bottle (12 oz) bought @ Allagash a few days ago.

Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow golden with a medium white head, decent retention and some lacing.

Aroma: Mild peppery notes, yeast, bready malts and very light citrus.

Taste: Bready malts, spicy yeast, lemony notes, peppery notes and light bitterness.

Palate: Light to medium body, but never watery. Good carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Dry and clean finish.

Overall: That one goes down really easily. Should that be available locally, I would refill that 24-bottles wooden crate quite often. At that price, it doesn’t get any better than this. Tasty, super quenching and an amazing compliment to food and/or sun.

Bottle from the brewery. First live rate since January. Backlog all done. Yay!!! Hazy yellow, medium fizzy off-white head. Decent retention. Aroma of spicy hops, pale malt. The taste is bready malt, spicy, herbal hops, hints of tea. Medium bodied, well balanced, delicate, drinkable. Nice.

Bottle @ home. Thanks, Drake! Deep gold pour with a small head. Nicely rounded nose. Some ginger snap cookies, bread. Mellow pastoral aromas. Some meringue and red apple skin. Well balanced and very easy to drink. Nice sweet apple sauce. light honey. Slightly peppery, some grass on the dryish finish. Light body, soft carb. Fantastically executed stuff. Deceptively simple.
