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.

Copper-coloured with good head and adequate lacing. Moderate musty (horseblankets?) nose. Medium-Thin body w/ slight stickiness. Dry, peppery flavour. Earthy, bitter, lasting finish which slightly overpowers malt flavours. I also swear that I get seafood flavours (crawfish, lobster) but am unconvinced (i.e., undue influence of label and fact that it’s produced in Maine).

Kind of bland with nothing special to offer. Wattered down with low flavor and aroma.

Nothing new about this pale ale, as they call it.A standard offering, recommend it on tap before bottle.

Either this beer has gotten worse over the years, or my tastes have changed. A decent pale ale, with e nice look and enough hops for everyone. It is just lacking something...

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2003 Reporting from the land of ringwood yeast. In my opinion this beer has everything execpt, it was fermented with ringwood.

A decent beer. A nice mix of matiness and hoppiness. Mine was draught, not bottled.

Clear, light amber/orange with thin head and lace. Subdued nose of doughy malt, light citrusy and bitter hops. Decent chewy malt backbone, hops bite nicely. I think this is pretty tasty, a little thin yes but nothing bad IMHO.

This brew reminded me of a UK Bitter, and then I look at the style and it says ’English Pale Ale’. Whaddaya know! It’s rather bitter, of course, and has tons of malty backbone for support. Didn’t smell all the nastiness some other raters experienced.

joet (2134) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 3, 2002
This had the same kind of river eddy stench that was very common in New Orleans beers. What the hops couldn’t mask was just terrible.

Boring, drab, thin microbrew.
