Are you kidding me? This beer is fabulous! Nice sour malt aroma. Red amber in color with quick head. Filtered. The flavor is fantastic - and all over the place - sweet cherries, wheat and nuts, balanced with PacNW hops. Easy drinking with a nice crisp apple finish. Great brew! props to Andre’!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2004
Tap@The Jolly Roger. These red/amber ales all taste the same after a while. A bit nutty, abit hoppy, definietly not over the top, pretty easy to drink. Fairly thin, not very intersting.

This was the last of the 3 I tried while visiting here. The appearance was very dark for a an amber, with an average creamy head. The taste is kind of peppery with ints of clove and ginger and cinnamon. A slightly sweet somewhat bitter aftertaste. This was very good, but again a mood beer.

Very good for a beer that is allegedly their best seller. It had a red-orange appearance under an average sized head. This medium bodied beer was crispy on the tongue and had a unique plum taste to it...slightly bitter finish....not bad.

Aroma is slightly malty (caramel) with a lot of hops spicyness. Begining is sweet and finish bitter. Bitterness does not last very long. Nice amber color with a thin head. Maritime also has this dry hopped at the brewery - which makes the hops more hoppy, and me more happy. Arrrh.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2002
7/13/02: Very light malty nose with a hint of fruit--very pleasant, but as Marinaro suggests, ’Sniff hard.’ Color is a hazy dark red-amber--head is moderate, rocky, lots of lace. Flavor starts with sweet malt, fairly mild, then a tang (from wheat malt perhaps?) accompanied by mellow hop bitterness. Not much top-end here. Finish is dry but fairly flavorless. Too bad, because this brew starts out very well, then seems to quit. Still, it isn’t bad, and its ultimate mildness might make it a good substitute for a blond ale or lager for the uninitiated palate...(again, cudos to the astute Marinaro). Re-Rate 10/13/02: The malt nose is noticeably more pronounced this time around, as is its presence as the leading flavor contributor...I liked this quite a bit better than in my initial exposure, with appropriate ratings adjustment...Ambers are not generally amongst my favorites, but this one now rates above average in this group.
