An American-style ale brewed one barrel at a time. The malt bill is built on American two-row malt and accented by crystal 10, Vienna, and white wheat malts. Magnum hops give the beer a nice clean bittering and Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hop varieties provide a pleasant floral and citrusy hop flavor. A healthy dose of additional Amarillo and Centennial are dry hopped to give this beer an inviting hop aroma. The beer is fermented with a neutral yeast strain and allowed to dry out so it finishes crisp and clean.

Note: Formerly known as Spring Peeper.

I might be a little bit generous with the 4 on appearance, because it looks pretty generic (macro) pale ale. But that looks like beer and I can’t deny it that. The aroma is like an IPA-lite. It’s a muted IPA, lots of hops (I think I’m beginning to learn Cascade) that are floral and citric aromas. The flavor is a little pilsner-esque in palate/mouthfeel and the flavor is lite (almost watered down, but not in a horrible way) IPA. A very, very good beer.

From Tap, pours extremely light in color. Head was modest with little lacing. Overall excellent. Another great ale from Maine brewing, seems like they can do no wrong.

500 ml bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury (VT) on September 28, 2016. Hazy pale gold, medium head. Soft lemon hop aroma, some spiciness. Nice light hoppy lemon pepper taste, notes of dry herbs, dry bitterness. A flavorful simple pale ale!

On tap. Hazy yellow, small white head. Aroma citrus hops, hay. Medium-light body, lightly carbonated. Mildly bitter flavor, fresh grassy and citrus hops, bit of malt, off-dry finish. Decent. Perhaps not completely fresh when I had it.

Bottle dated 9/13/16. Poured a hazy yellow with over a fingers worth of foamy white head. The smell was all lemony hops with a bit of bready sweetness. The flavor is very balanced with lemon, some pepper, and earthiness. The feel is very crisp, medium, and finishes dry. This is an excellent Pale Ale. Doesn’t try to do too much but does everything it needs to right.

La bière est blonde dorée, claire, laissant transparaître une effervescence moyenne et une bonne carbonatation. Au nez, ça semble plutot houblonné avec de bons arômes de pêches et d’ananas. En bouche, le goût est assez subtil. D’abord, un léger côté d’agrumes, de citrons et de pêches fidèle au nez, ainsi qu’un aspect assez floral au gout. Il y a également une légère amertume qui colle au fond de la bouche. Au fil des gorgées on essaie de voir s’il y a plus de goût et de saveurs mais l’on reste sur notre appétit. Cette bière est simple d’approche, très buvable mais manque d’un quelque chose pour qu’elle devienne réellement mémorable.

Pours a nice amber from a tap, big piney and cirusy hop nose and flavor supported by a caramelly malt backbone. Pretty good beer.

On tap, hazy yellow pour, smelled and tasted spicy, odd soapy and pepper taste that overshadowed the crispness, aight ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
