Amber to dark amber in color, decent aroma of yeast and hops. Flavor is sharp to bitter. The alchol is not hidden well and a bit overpowering for 5.9% content. Just did’t care for this Extra Special Ale.

Much heavier in body than what I was looking for in hot weather in Portland. Much maltier than expected, with a very full body. Some hoppiness toward the middle. Nice white head that diminished very quickly. I'll bet that this is favorite around Portland in the autumn.

Pours a nice amber with a thick head. Very weak aroma, and very weak tasting as well. Bit of a piney aftertaste. Not bad, just seems a bit weak overall.

Not a real strong aroma... almost has a ’macro-brew’ scent to it plus a bit of malt and caramel. In the current light, it has almost a burnt orange hue to it. Has a real malty taste. Not much flavor...no hop character to speak to. Pretty forgettable.

I got this beer down in Florida at Case & Keg because of its Maine ties. I am not a big fan of this style, but I thought that I would give it a shot based on my brother’s advice. Pours with a nice amber color and a 2 finger head that settles down pretty quick. There is a bit of a yeasty smell initially along with some gentle spices. The taste is a bit dry for me with some sweetness and some tannon hints-earthy maybe? I didnt detect too much hops, but there was some light maple taste. The mouthfeel is nice, not too full, but plenty of taste-it just happens not to be my favorite. I think that this could be a nice example of an ESB, but I dont know really too much since it isnt my style.

light color orange, not much head. Surprising taste-almost like butterscotch or toffee. Not much hop presence. Probably a good summer beer. Pretty decent.

A nice easy to drink beer with i a nice (small) hoppy taste. Nice golden orange color. Will be buying a sixer of this soon.

Hummm interesting little bitter but it’s not so bad but one would have thought it would be a bunny not a boar on the label
