2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This was the first organic beer I tried, sometime in the early 2000s. Tried at the Taos Pizza Outback. Weak and skunky with a distasteful sour aftertaste. Grainy flavor.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The first thing I noticed about this beer was the size of the head, simply HUGE and fizzy (I did not even pour it hard). The colour is an off orange amber hue. Aroma is grassy and sweet, flavour is more of the sweetness and a fairly strong alcohol flavour. This said, it was a smooth drink with little aftertaste.

Pours a cloudy orangeish colour with a large fruity white head. Floral hops and sweet malts in the aroma, a little sweeter than what i expected it to be. pleasent none the less. finishes creamy with a lingering hop taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/wiscasset target=blank>Treats) I think thereís a pretty good beer here that got ruined...Bottle opens with a big pffffttt!! Mmmm, well...Pours cloudy amber with a huge, overflowing foamy head. The concern grows. When enormous head finally recedes to a big frothy cap I detect aromas of caramel, vanilla and Bandaids. Flavor of tingly, vinegar sourness, Bandaid and actually still retained some nice malty caramel and vanilla flavor. I think thereís a pretty nice malty amber under here, maybe a poor manís Drakeís Amber. But mainly what I got is my second new beer in a row thatís infected.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured clear amber from the 12 ounce bottle with very little head and minimal lacings. Sweet malts, bitter, citrus hops with a pine needle finish. Seems a bit under-rated to me, maybe there are some quality control issues. My bottle was just fine.
