3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Broadway Grill and Brewery in Portland. Walked into the place looking for some food, and had no idea that it was a brewpub and had never heard of Old Market. In a town with so many breweries I suppose that is to be expected. Anyway.... this beer has a good, moderate citrus aroma/ Light copper color, with a thin creamy head. Very hop-forward initial / more hops in mid, and then some balance takes hold / strong, dirty hop trails in the finish. Medium body. Some good mouthfeel/texture from hops. Perhaps too much hopping for the light O.G. Tastes much more like a hopped-up pale ale than an amber. Solid stuff.

Tap. An amber?? From the name I expected an IPA. Deep amber in color, scant off-white head. Malt and hop aroma, much more hop presence than I would expect from an amber ale. Medium bodied. Pleasant hop flavor with adequate malt balance. Fair as an IPA better as an amber

This one is loaded with spicy hops. Amber ale? Better call this one an IPA. Very fresh hop taste. Hops all over.

A: Opaque copper with a thin white head.
N: Substantial spruce and earth. Pineapple, grapefruit, biscuit, and even a hint of rapsberry.
T: Densely bitter - submerged leaves. Minor sweetness.
M: Medium body, very dense with lower carb levels.
O: a throwback brew, what I remember drinking a lot of when I first started my beer journey.

On tap at OMP with Jeff. Pours a light amber with white foam. Smells of very floral hops. Tastes bitter and hoppy with hints of overly bitter strawberries and extra hops.

For an IPA, not quite bitter, for an amber too much. Kind of a weird brew, but good nonetheless.
