12oz bottle courtesy of beerbill, pours cola brown with a bright amber hue and a small khaki head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, and licorice. Taste similar to aroma with some nuts and ashy roasted flavors. Something about this beer reminds me of old people.

I get a faint smell of black licorice with this one, but it’s hard to tell because there really is not a lot of aroma. Not bad but not much flavor. The mouthfeel is rich and smooth but not a lot of flavor.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a fruity malt and cereal. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt with chocolate. Easy to drink a good brown ale from Atlantic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from a six-pack I received as a gift from my friend Vicky. Pours a clear deep mahogany that allows light to pass through completely with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Mild aroma of malt and nuts. The flavor is very similar with mild malt and nuts. Mild bitterness at the finish. On the lighter side of medium bodied. A bit timid, but no problems.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
tap at Geddy’s in Bar Harbor - Pours auburn with an off white head. It smells of toffee accented malt. The flavor is sweet with a definite caramel/toffee taste. It’s light bodied and on the watery side, an okay but too bland brew.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Rack. Pours a deep amber with a thin head. The appearance is deceiving as this is not as heavy as the color would lead you to believe. The body is a bit thin but this is a well balanced session beer. There is a bit of a nuttiness with not a lot of bitterness from the hops. Overall I really enjoyed this one and it was very easy to drink.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the brewery. Deep red amber with a decent khaki head. Actually left a little lacing in the plastic sample cup. Aroma is roasty nuts and earth with maybe a little coffee. Taste is mostly roasty malt with a little hops at the end. Body was medium. Overall, nothing too bad or great about this one. Seems like a fine house ale suitable to not really upset anyone.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Low scores, but an okay beer. Little smell. Malty, a bit oaky. A tiny bit sour. Not awful, but nothing great.
