On tap at Jimmy the Greeks in Old Orchard Beach. A wonderful medium amber brew with a good malty backbone. Lots of roasty malts. Good hoppy bitterness and finish on the backside, especially with the East Kent hops. Goes down very smoothly.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a rocky light tan head that recedes quickly. Aroma is of spicy hops, crystal malt, yeast, and a subtle pepperiness. Initial taste is spicy hops, that gives way to malty sweetness, with some noticeable alcohol and ends with solid bittering in the finish, with a lingering, thickness at the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with a medium body. Very nice balance.

Bottle. Copper pour with a very light copper-white head that fades into a ring. Aroma is dark fruit, caramel malt, and tea. Medium mouthfeel - carbonation is present. Flavor is toasted malts, caramel, grass, tea, and just a touch of alcohol warmth. This is really solid, drinkable beer. Quite enjoyable.
