TATE (301) - Lubec, Maine, USA - OCT 1, 2011
On tap at Sunday River. Pours a reddish color with little head. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Well balanced with a bit of sweet caramel flavor. Another one that is easy to drink.

My Bottom Line:
Mineral notes mar this Altbier’s caramel and toasted malts, as herbal hops succeed in piercing the watery body.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the amber-hued copper.
-As for every beer they had that day, the loose and somewhat empty mouthfeel was not inspiring at all.
-Dried fruitiness can found throughout.
-Hoppy bitterness is levelled, but unpolished.

On tap at the brewpub.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 28, 2007
On tap at the Great Lost bear. Pours a coppery orange with a thin white head. Malty nose with some fruitiness in there. Very very smooth moutfeel. Pretty yummy flavors, surprisingly hoppy for an Altbier but that’s a standard American take on things i think :)

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2005
Maine Brewers Festival 2005. Copper amber body with a small white head. Subtle malt in the aroma with a touch of dry caramel? Similar notes in the flavour. Sweet maltiness but surprisingly dry overall impression. Average palate. This was a bit subtle for this late in the evening but it was quite pleasant nonetheless.

Had on draught. Medium bronze color with smallish head. Nice malted aroma. Tasted semi-sweet with sweet malts but still light on the tongue. Nice hop backup. Enjoyable beer from a small brewer, probably their best.
