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.

Deep Golden color with amber undertones and a medium thick head. the aroma is slightly sour and bitter with a nutty hop aroma lingering beneath. the flavor is slightly sweet and hoppy with a dry bitter hoppy finish.

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

jsquire (3499) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2002
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 didn’t really understand it. It was well balanced, but there was just something about this beer I didn’t get. I’m 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.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2002
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.
