COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bomber from Half Time. Pours very light gold with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma is light pitted fruit and citrus. Med minus body. Flavor is floral and quite fruity. Light pitted fruits like nectarine. It is crisp and clean. It’s also finishing fruity bitter. Malt? Yeah, there’s arguably some lightly roasted malt backbone. But screw the backbone(tho it is necessary). This is ephemerally hoppy in a laid back East Coast style. Yum!

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2011 Bottle at the Craft Beer Co., thanks to Ken. Pours hazy gold with a foamy, white head. Aroma is clean and grassy. Medium sweet flavor, bits of grass and pine, light honey and bread. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Clean, light bitter finish, bit of grass, some toasty malts. Very drinkable, well balanced beer.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2011
A: The beer pours a hazy orange color with a couple fingers of white head. S: Starts out with a solid aroma of citrus hops, particularly orange with a more mild grapefruit note. There is a bit of malt character to it as well. Plenty of pale malt giving a bit of bread aroma and a light sweetness. T: The sweet malt notes are more pronounced on the palate than expected. That said, still fairly hoppy. A touch of grass to go with all the citrus fruit and citrus peel. There is a mild pine note which provides some bitterness. M: On the lighter side of medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Really a solid pale ale. So far I’ve been impressed with the Maine Beer Co. offerings I’ve tried.

It’s hazy, dark golden with a light greyish hue and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of mango, apricot, citrus and other kinds of fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and hoppy notes of citrus, mango, apricot, slightly sweet caramel, and the finish is medium dry and bitter. It’s very well-balanced and charming.
