3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Excellent, tight retention. The soapy, biscuity nose offers notes of pale malts, biscuit and caramel. The flavor is of pale, biscuity malt and a nice, crisp, hop kick. A touch grainy with a mild note of butterscotch. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and intermediate carbonation. Mid-length, sticky-sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a see through amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of citrus and caramel. Toffee in the tastes as well. Light bitter finish. I could see this as a decent session beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Creamy malt and orange peel aroma with a hint of hops. Medium amber with small head. Slightly sour barley malt flavor with light hops finish. Toasted malt aftertaste. A nice beer but it would really take a 5/5 beer to live up to the legacy of Colonel Chamberlain and his 20th Maine boys.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to matta for this. Pours deep copper with medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, slight hops. Tastes malty, with a fruity, caramel element and some finishing hops. Very smooth palate, and some honey at culmination.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber, big cream coloured haed with excellent retention, leaving chunky lace down the glass. Interesting aroma, almost perfumey, ginger spice, caramel, and subtle stone fruits. Full-bodied malt-forward palate with a moderately resinous hop finish. I really liked this one as a bit of a different take on a style that often comes across as a dumbed-down cascade-laden IPA.
