Original Pub Style is a light copper-colored medium-bodied with a nice dry bite at the finish. A subtle combination of Cascade and Willamette hops give this ale a fine floral aroma and a slightly fruity aftertaste. The taste captures the freshness of a hand-crafted brew pub ale that goes right from the conditioning tank to your glass!

Note: Bottled version is contract-brewed by Shipyard.

Bottle: pours light orange with a small diminishing white head. Light citrus hop aroma. Flavor is mildly hoppy, a bit rough going down. Finishes bitter and somewhat dry. Decent beer.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 Light amber with a grid of wisps and a bubbly ring of off white. Citrusy hop aroma with a pleasant caramel maltiness--clean. Flavour begins with a nice bitterness followed closely by caramel and then a considerable amount of diacetyl butterscotch-a bit too much for my taste. Good lemony-pine hops throughout the experience and appropriate bitterness overall. A little astringent with a smooth, medium body. A bit mouth coating. Moderate carbonation. Not bad. [resampled at brewery, 12/2005] Clear copper with nice lacing. Nice grapefruit and toffee aroma. Bitter toffee taste with a nice blend of US hops but not a lot of hops flavour when push comes to shove. Light body with medium carbonation and a bitter finish.

rauchbier (3699) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2004
Cask, GBBF 2004. Gold, moderate white head and gentle condition. Delicate sweet grainy malt and hop. Slight caramel maltiness in the mouth with some low hop flavour, more sweetness and gentle hop bitterness in the finish.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2004
A pretty decent, if uninspiring pale ale. Restrained citric hop character, with a bit of fruit and malt. Clean, dry finish. Cask, GBBF 2004.

Copper color. This is a balanced, towards the British end of the style, with pleasanty earthy malts and a mild fruitiness, finishing somewhat dry. Good accompaniment with your average American meal.

I realize that they use american hops in this but I honestly think this should be considered an english pale ale or an english bitter due to its fruity aromas and flavors. Some of the esters noticed in the aroma reminded me of English style yeasts. The palate is excellent. Very smooth and exceptionally drinkable especially on tap. Very under-rated.

SilkTork (5450) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2004
Gravity GBBF. Gentle and comfortable APA. Some citric flavours and some balsamic vinegar and sweet malt. Nice. Mushy nettle aroma. These Gritty McDuffs seem to be fairly average beers - hardly seems worth the effort of bringing them all the way over from the States when there are many better beers to choose from.

Cask conditioned (Gravity) at the Great British Beer Festival, Kensington Olympia, London. (Thursday Session). Eggs in the aroma. Average pale with not much going for it.

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2004
Clear straw colored. Diminishing white cover. Very mild aroma of floral hops and a bit too grainy malt. Lemony and flowery dry palate. Simple. Refreshing without seeking to be more. Light to medium body, high carbonation. A pale ale with no pretention.

The Portland Head Light is my favorite beer at Gritty McDuffs. Probably one of the best light beers i’ve had out of a Maine brewer also. Has a nice fresh clean dry taste with a blondeish color and a great aftertaste.
