FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Pours a brassy reddish amber with a rather persistent head of fine foam. Rich fruity nose with notes of apple, pear and grape. Tart apple like taste but very well balanced. The tartness is balanced out with sweet and caramel notes atypical of a bitter. Tart and tangy finish.

CASK

4/21/2008: Sheepscot Boothbay Bitter had a hazy amber/burnt orange appearance. The frothy off-white head left thick lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy (leafy and somewhat grassy) which seemed to be Cascade hops. The flavor ha a light butter toffee bitterness followed by a soft and citrusy Cascade (?) hop bitterness. The body of the beer was medium and it was soft on the palate. This is a good beer from the cask!

Pint (draught) at The Great Lost Beer in Portland, Maine. Rating #13 for this beer...

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Drank from a cask @ Great lost bear in Portland, Maine. Poured a light brown with a small head. Nothing special in the mouth. Rather thin. Was my first cask condition ale. So I was not sure what to expect.

Growler from Florian’s in Auburn. Beautiful amber-red body with a thin film of off-white head. Citrus and piney hops dominate the aroma. The same citrus and pine hops dominate the flavor to a great degree with enough malt to help balance the hops in the beer, A true APA. A nice medium body with only moderate carbonation. A very drinkable, full flavored, pleasant ale. I’m impressed. Love to have something like this local.
