Pours a wonderful amber orange with a strong tan head. The nose is amazing,smells like old wet forests,wine and fruit. Great blend of malt and fruitiness that drys out into a candy and hops finish. Very good body and lots of carbonation making for a excellent drinking experience.

Beer from Maine. Got 2006 gold medal prize on the West coast. Pretty impressive. Not the only beer from Maine that is very good. Most appealing is taste.

A very good ESB. Also reminesent of Shipyard Export Ale (Shipyard brews this beer in the US) in my opinion. Caramel tasting and a bit earthy. Hopped well.

very hoppy towards the end of the glass. nice head that faded very quickly to an awesome display of lacing. the aroma had a hint of pears? (unless my nose is falling apart on me) this was not the best beer out there, but i will try it again to see if i need to re-rate it.

This is a solid ale, but I don’t think it is as great as the reviewers rave. There is some real complexity, and I love the apple finish and the caramel, malty toast, coffee front tastes. I think this needs to be closer to room temperature. I drank it cold and I think it closed up the flavors. Will try again!

Not a bad little ESB, by no means is it the best. But for what I paid, I was very happy. Nice mix of malt and that ESB bite, fairly dusty mouthfeel.

tekstr1der (141) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2015
My favorite ESB, pours bright, clear copper with thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel, bread dough, and a slight metallic note that in no was is displeasing. In fact, the smell entices well into the flavor, which translates most of the nose directly. Caramel and toast on the tongue. Finishes fairly dry with a semi-sweet lingering aftertaste. Much tasty. So session!

Something about a wild pig on the label has always put me off from trying this beer. Well let’s see: Poured a clear amber color with a one-finger head. Yeasty spice hops in aroma. Surprising more mild in taste than expected. Creamy yeasty hop flavor, very smooth, just a touch bitter and finished clean and dry. Sour yeast aftertaste. Not so scary after all! This is really good beer and my rating went up the more I drank. Highly recommended.

Nice dry hopped flavor, but no body to speak of -- this went down so quick the taste was an afterthought -- really didn’t savor well. Much better bitters out there.
