3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2005 bottle. Very strong yellow-gold appearance, not watered down looking. Slight copper-brass tone to it. Lightly hazy with a moderate amount of head, fairly well-retained. Aroma of wheat, light soap, a touch of sour yeast and a bit of light vienna malt. Grainy huskiness in the flavor, with a smooth torrefied wheatiness. Crisp, lightly citric hops and a good deal of body, relative to style. Very drinkable, refreshing, no off-flavors. Peppery carbonation, a touch of honey, drinkable to the extreme and light-bodied, but not watery.

Medium hoppy aroma over a clear, golden ambery color. Very lacking in flavor with the only discernable flavor being the lingering hoppy in the aftertaste. eh.

Very nice summer session ale. Hoppy but not overly so, and is backed up by some malt. Very drinkable and would go nice while bbq-ing. Light- yet has a good flavor to it.

Beer comes in a 12 oz brown long neck with orange label..says Casco bay Summer Ale this appears to be the same beer as Summerfest ale.
Ok the beer poyrs a nice dark golden/lightish amber colour there is a very slight hint of haze..nice small white head that goes fast..leaving some excellent lacing.
Very fresh floral hop aroma is much evident..spicy even.
mmm nice swewet malts assault my taste buds first..then a nice spicyness then the hop bitterness..that l;ingers well done..different than the PNW pales i have tasted.
Nice tingling mouthful feels great on my tongue!
A most drinkable summer beer..one of the best I am sure.
