Amber in color with a finger of off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and relatively light. Flavor is very crisp with more fruity and floral hop flavors with a little bit of bitterness. Palate is fruity and bitter to start and then finishes sweet with some caramel malts.

Golden amber haze with a light head. Aroma doesn’t translate well to the taste but still a quality ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a murky, dark copper with a velvety, thin head of white foam. Aroma is very malt forward with an English hop presence. The hops are more neutral in the aroma. Taste is sort of woody and almost herbal. Kind of makes Mabey think of tree bark. Very sessionable beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A solid pale ale with a nice amber color and body. Doesn’t pour a terribly thick head and fit well into a 15 oz glass rather than a pint. It has a strong unique taste partly reminiscent of both grapefruit and hops. A very nice staple of Smuttynose that is delightfully unique from their IPA.

Hazy light amber with a finger-wide white head. Aroma of pine needles, resin, biscuit, and citrus. Flavor has more hay, earth, and pepper notes than the aroma. Hop finish with moderate bitterness.
