2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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

Nothing special. Bottle. Poured deep reddish/brown hue. Very small head. Has an equal balance of sweetness and bitter hops to the flavour. Not bad at all. Just nothing to go out of the way for either.
