Golden pour with hints of red. Light head and lace. Nice caramel malt aroma. Sweet start with a hint of cherriness. A hint of hop bitter on the end. Thin and a bit watery, decent carbonation. Not bad more like an amber ale than at PL.

On tap at Barcade. Pours a clear pale golden amber wit ha thin white head. Mostly empty aromas with some malt and a little bit of citrus. Medium bodied, light malt, not much else. Finishes with a light bitter.

12 oz bottle. Amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of malt and faint hops. Great full flavor of roasted malt. Pleasant surprise, really good local (for me) lager.

Yes JB, this was a fine beeer to have right after tubing and before trying my hand on the jetski. This beer had more body to it than the usual Lager. I guess that’s why it’s premium.

The label calls this one an amber, ’premium lager’ doesn’t seem to do it justice. Very nice beer with a great balance of hops and malt, leaning towards malty. Enjoying it on a boat with our best friends made it all the more enjoyable.

pepper spice and malt flavor to this cloudy tea looking brew. a bit too little hop and this brew tastes like something is missing. a whole dimension of character, flavor!? call it what you like but at least the palate is open to insert something, what !!! with a good enough name, bottle and appearance cape ann reformulate this brew a bit and show us your skills. good luck since it won’t take too much.

Not much to like about this beer. While the aroma was ok the aftertaste was not pleasant and hung on the tounge for a long time. I would not and did not order a second.

Tasting at a beerfest [Disclaimer: This was tasted along with many, many other beers during a tasting at Julios. Some of the details are a little hazy]. Liked this one slightly better than their ale.

(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy copper pour with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty with a light touch of hops underneath. Flavor is sweet at the beginning with a crisp and lightly bitter hop balance near the middle. Finishes clean and lightly toasted with some malts and a bit of dry grass on the palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice head that settles in a rocky fashion, leaving some chunky lace after each sip.
Malty (crystal) aroma. Adequate hop to provide balance, but this smells closer to a cross between a Mild and a Scotch ale.
Solid toasty malt flavor up front. Stronger hop finish than I expected. Provides good balance. A rich beer, but with good carbonation.
