COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Tap at the brewery. Comes to life in the mouth. Aroma has caramel; taste is sweet, with bitterness taking over. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Orange, with a frothy head.

A: snifter. Nice copper color, with a good white head on top that retains about an 1/8th of an inch. Practically no lacing. S: nice malty aroma. Solid crystal malts, with some fruity aromas. Not a big hop aroma for a pale ale. T: has that Northeastern beer taste. Good solid malt backbone, with a great balance of bitter hop flavors. Almost reminds me of a marzen. I am getting some hints of banana. Taste kind of like some Shipyard products. M: good carbonation level. Medium body. A rather interesting palate. D: definitely a session beer in my opinion. Decent for the style but nothing crazy with this one.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle. Poured a burnt orange that slowly became lighter copper, and had a very good white head. Aromas of mild floral hops. Taste is crisp and dry malts with floral notes and a very slight hint of malt to keep the bitterness low. A simple brew that does it very well.

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Mild fruity aroma. Hazy light amber colour. The flavour is slightly grainy with a mild, refreshing grassy hop note.

BREWMUSKCLES (2224) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2010
a brew with a chalky lye like flavor that of course presents itself toard the back of the palate. watery, sweetish and low in carbonation with some fruit that does not balance this brew out but, helps a little bit with the flavor. that to me is not enough.

2007: Hazy light orange. Almost no head. Has a nice thick "real ale" look to it. Looks very English. Very nice normal, typical ale smell. The malt dominated with a hint of gentle flowery hops. Very subtle, but very pleasant. A bit toasted. Terrific dry ale with a dry biscuty malt. Very light wheat aftertaste with an estery finish. Really really good. Unique hint of wheat. Even the yeast is excellent. Dry and biscuity, medium thickness. It’s a fine session ale. Feels great. This is really an outstanding English style pub ale. Easy to drink but full of flavor. I am surprised a lot of other Advocates are dogging this one, because I was really impressed with it, even out of a bottle.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Pours a much much too light amber. The nose is bland with a lot of malts. So is the flavor. It is the worst beer in the world, but neither is it very impressive. I’ bored.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Honey and caramel on the nose with spicy hops, bread-like nose. Pours clear pale with no head. English style pale more than American, malt driven with spicy earthy hops. Thin bodied, not much going on.

blipp (5974) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottle. Amber orange with a thin head. Sweet popcorny aroma with a light fruity hint. Off malty flavor with popcorn and a light sweetness. Light bitterness in the finish. Not great.

Bottle from Total Wine. I hope the pub in Maine is cooler than the brews. Maybe you have to be there to "feel" their brews because I am definitely not feeling the two that I have had so far. Pours copper-gold. Slightly hoppy with bitter grains and grass notes. Malts as per usual and some pepper.I ends there. I was left wondering if I had consumed anything at all. There’s some work to be done here fellas.
