Fairly good. A little malty and sweet but finishing kind of bitter. Personally, this wouldn’t be my summer beer as comes across kind of rich, but it’s pretty tasty for anytime, really.

Bottle. Clear copper. Yeasty aroma with clove spice and citrus. Taste follows and adds banana. Light and clean. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Metalchopz (2320) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Purchased in their mixed pack on a trip to Maine. Pours a clean amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and creamy lacing. Hoppy nose with some cereal malts and even banana. Floral hop taste at first with some nice grain malts in the finish. Fruity hints lingers. A nice, refreshing but heavier ale.

GIJOE (647) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours dark amber with a foamy, off-white head that stays a while. Nose is mostly malty with a hint of hops. Some slightly citrusy notes. Taste is mild bitterness. Long grapefruity finish. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Decent brew.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of malts, grass and some citrus. Taste is malts and citrus.

This is not a bad beer. It’s lightweight, easy on the palatte and goes down easy. I would serve this to any crowd at a good barbecue. It’s not overwhelming or particularly distinctive in any area, but it’s not forgettable either. It is worth a shot if you haven’t tried it.

Bottle. Nose light and pale, lightly grainy but golden malt with a squirt of citrus and dusting of candy. Pours clear amber leaning into copper, short beige head. Very crisp, refreshing full body has caramel and earth, faint cardboard, amber and lightly toasted Vienna-style malts, mild fruit behind the light earth, light chalk, more orange citrus with fainter lemon and grapefruit. A lot more complex than expected, it’s also clean and fresh, and hit the spot.

JK (4522) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Tap at a random bar in Boothbay. Light orange. Some hops in the aroma and a little bitterness in the flavor. Seems too bitter for a comparison to kolsch.

Pours deep golden with medium white heads. Nose is caramel. And alcohol. Aromas are bubble gum, amber rum, raisin and herbal hops. Light dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a clear golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies, slight foamy lacing and rings are left in the wake. The smell had malts and the hops with a bit of citrus in the background. There is a slight biscuity smell ever so slightly in the background. The taste was pretty much the same as the smell with a slight hop bite in the finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium with moderate carbonation on the tongue. Overall, this is a solid brew by Geary’s that I would come back to.

Bière achetée dans le Maine. Couleur blond légèrement ambré. Mousse blanche généreuse. Liquide qui n’est pas voilé. Nez assez sucré d’abord : rappelant celui de la Bass, il est caractérisé par des épices, du caramel, du rhum brun, du grain. En bouche, c’est d’abord sucré, puis sec légèrement. Les notes de caramel sont présente. Légère amertume. Finale très sèche, définitivement. Produit correct, mais duquel je m’attendais à un peu plus... Je n’ai pas trop de peine en pensant que je ne pourrai pas me la procurer au Québec. Cheers!
