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.

Maineís original craft brew, right here. I suppose its flavor reflects the time in which it was created, the mid 1980s. This is a flavorful brew that does not depart drastically from what people were used to at the time - the malt and hops flavor is subdued while still solidly present. I like it alright, but its not a favorite.

Has a light yellow color and not much of a smell. Taste lightly malted and finishes with slight bitterness. Overall this is not a bad beer, but nothing special.

Bad bottle - I hope. Metallic, stale floral hop flavor. Finished sour. Not enjoyable.

Crisp and sharp, yet very easy to drink and enjoyable. Great with food or by itself.

Nice pale copper color out of the bottle with a nice white head that left good lace. The aroma made me think of buttered burnt toast. I tasted the "slightly sour finish" but didnít really understand it. It was well balanced, but there was just something about this beer I didnít get. Iím going to have to try it again.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 22, 2002
Light amber with the slightest chill haze. Small, foamy white head. Light carbonation. Aroma of citrus, Ringwood yeast and mild hints of spicy German hops. Mellow, oily and rich. Hoppy aftertaste with notes of citrus and florally spicy hops. Medium body. Solid balance of pale malts. Dry. Deft interplay of gentle yeasty fruitiness. Finishes fuller with more of an herbal/citrus mix. Very nice, although I question the freshness of this sample.
