3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Bright amber orange with a small bubbly beige head. Faint toasted malt nose. Dry firm toasted malt flavor upfront. Slightly citrus fruit hops in middle with spicy bitterness. Finishes dry and crisp with some astringency. Very British in character.

Very malty and dey flavored. Ends with a nice hoppy bitter finish. Leaves a malt flavor on the palate. Pours a deep cooper in color with a thick tan head. Had at home from beer of the month. Okay at best

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Copper amber brew iwth off white head. Nice aroma of light malts, aromatic hops and a hint of fruit. Taste is dry up front and moderately hops foreward with some crispness showing up at the start of the swallow. Toasted malts with a moderate but complex hoppiness in the middle and finish. Good palate, good all around.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rather watery concoction with a tarty bitterness that isn’t balanced out very well. Decently refreshing but not your best bet.

Copper color with a thin white head. Pleasant spicy, herbal, and floral hop aroma. Toasted malt on the palate. Dry. Medium body.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Got a couple bottles from my good friend of mine who visits Maine pretty regularly. This isn’t 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, weren’t balanced as nicely. I tasted a bit too much malt and not enough hops.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’d 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).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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