3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a very mild beer, evident by the gentle malts in the aroma and in the flavor, and a typically British mineral-water flavor as well. ( I actually wrote this before I read the description!) So it is typically British, which for me, means that it is simple and easy-to-drink, without any complexities on the palate. It goes well with food.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Clear orange-brown color with thick, foamy off white head. Malty aroma, like a mixture of brown sugar, soy sauce, and molasses. Roasty with a touch of bitterness up front, slightly sweet at the end. Flavor isn’t as complex as the aroma.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draught in Camden and in the bottle. Light brown color, very clear, nice head. Nice caramel aroma with a bit of hops. The flavor is delicious! The nuttiness along with the sweetness and bitterness are an excellent combination. It has some fruitiness but again it balances with the nuttiness and bitterness. I can drink this all night long. The light to medium body delivers flavor and drinkability. Maine is a beautiful place and everyone should go there to drink this beer and relax. Great brewing Geary’s!
