(draft) Clear copper body with creamy beige head, leaving a nice full lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is mild sweet, floral, some earthy, slightly fruity. Taste is floral, slight berry, light earthy. Finish is earthy/floral. Medium body. Seems more ESB-ish than IPA.

For all you Mainards out there this is a must have. Don't sell yourself short and go for that Casco Bay shit. Believe me, I've been to the Brewery and all, this place is legit. They brew a quality micro and take pride in it. Have fun.

SirTom (88) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Better than average IPA. Try it if you have a chance. Not as hoppy as I thought it would be, but not a problem.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Dark amber; Earthy, hoppy aroma with slight solvent, marmalade and mint. Moderate, woody, herbal bitterness. Slight astringency. Malts are of toasted caramel. Sweetish, minty finish. This has some style.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2003
[Bottled at only 6% ABV] The aroma is fresh, sweet, and malty. The color is a hazy orange and it has a small dense head. The flavor starts slightly bitter turning OK sweet from an OK malt blend. The end is more dty than bitter but it still has a slight grassy note from the hops. A quite nice beer.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 14/20
OldGrowth (2619) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Bottle:Light fruity apricot/peach,orange, & carmel. Classic clear copper color. Little head disappeared quickly. Toasted malt & citrus-orange- hops. Creamy, slightly syrupy. Dry, disappeared quickly. Not bad, but lost some points on quick finish. I'm doubtful of 7.5% claim, though my bottle had no indication.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2003
Bottled 6% ABV: Clear amber coloured. Offwhite lasting head. Very hoppy aroma with fruit and citrus notes. Wellbalanced hoppy flavour. Some fruit accents. Lasting medium to heavy bitterness in the aftertaste. Dry and crisp beer. Highly drinkable.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2003
Draught, brown with a really nice ruby hue to it. Had a thing white head that didn't last long. Good mix of hops and malt. A nice IPA, but probably won't become my usual.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Served on draught at the Clarke Cook House in Newport RI. A clear deep gold in color with a thin white head. Faint citrus hop aroma with malt in the background. Light bodied and effervescent. Flavors not really big but well balanced.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Nice ruby-brown color with decent white head. aroma of dark sweet malt and some flowery hops. Taste: Starts sweet and malty (caramel, dried apricot). I was expecting more hops. Dry, nutty and bready finish.
