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.

brokensail (10641) - 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.
