COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship pale is a classic British pale ale with a nod to the legendary beers of Burton-on-Trent. Copper-colored, dry, clean and crisp with lots of late hope taste in an appetizing complex with ale fruitiness from imported Hampshire yeast.
Ingredients: Two row English malt (pale, crystal and chocolate); Cascade, Mt Hood, Tettnang and Fuggle Hops.

Got a couple bottles from my good friend of mine who visits Maine pretty regularly. This isnít a bad pale ale, but not a really great one either. The beer pours a dark amber color with minimal head and lacing. The nose is balanced pretty well with a good mix of floral hops and light caramel malt. The flavors, though, werenít balanced as nicely. I tasted a bit too much malt and not enough hops.

Iíd put this as a solid average beer. Much better than any macro brew and better than the basic Sam Adams, too. Not much aroma coming from the foamy, off-white head. The initial flavor has a decent bitter bite to it, but it dissipates much too quickly. Good but not great. I may have given it an extra .1 because it comes from Maine (which is super cool).

Metalchopz (2297) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Purchased in their mixed pack on a trip to Maine. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a frothy warm cap, decent retention and nice lacing. Mild cereal grain malts with what seems adjuncts. Grainy taste with a little hops. OK, but not the best pale ale.

Pours copper with a thin, off-white head. Nose is malt with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is mildly bitter. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Decent brew.

Very disappointing. Has a grassy aroma. The flavor is bitter with no sweetness or anything. Very bland. Watery finish

Tap at a bar in Boothbay. Run of the mill pale ale. Dry herbal hops and doughy malt flavor. Its not.

(Bottle) A big disappointment and my first sample from this brewer. Flavor was stale and bitter, lacking the character of the EPA. Perhaps and bad bottle.

cagou007 (328) - FRANCE - MAY 27, 2014
Pours copper with medium tan head. Nose is caramel and bubble gum. Aromas are toasted malts, caramel with a hint if bubble gum. Few herbal hops, but hop is quite absent for a pale ale. Dry toasty finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from a Hannaford Supermarket in Kennebunk, ME. Amber with a thin off-white head; malty aroma; malty taste with a touch of caramel and estery fruit; and a biscuity finish. Fairly close to the Burton style - well Bass at least.
