lots of carbonation and some definite fruit on the nose. surprising amount of hops on the tongue. finish is fairly bitter. This seems like a light-bodied pale ale trying to masqurade as a summer ale - seems even hoppier than a typical Kolsch. Incorrect categorization maybe?

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper amber with a good off-white head and streaks of lace. Aroma and taste is malt and butter rum, enough that it leaves a film on the roof of the mouth. The finish offers a little hop bittering, but one may question how much is actually accepted. Okay to have a couple on a cool summer evening, not for big drinking days.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 7/2/13
Aroma: The nose has some spice, bread, caramel, and a bit of butter
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The "offness" comes through more, otherwise the components are the same as the nose
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a dry, spicy finish
There’s something sort of buttery that throws this one off. It’s subtle enough in the nose, but unfortunately, comes through more in the flavor. It’s okay outside of that, but that is hard to get past.
