Bottle... Clear, deep amber ale with a mid-sized, foamy, off-white head. Good retention. Malty, beefy nose. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. Caramelly flavor with decent bitterness to keep the malts in check. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of Jan 09. A handsome amber-brown pour with a decent off-whote head and lacing. Slow and steady carbonation. The aroma is of malts and sugar or caramel. Good mouth feel. The taste is both bitter and sweet (no, not bittersweet). There is also a touch of hops and the brew finishes dry. Quite enjoyable.

A nice medium hoppy aroma, with just a little sweetness to it. Flavor was good, nicely balanced. The thing that I didn’t like about this beer was the excessive carbonation. All the bubbles reminded me of champagne.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz brown bottle (screwtop) from Hannaford in Gardiner. Pours a hazy dark amber with a good inch of off-white head. Smells like earthy spicy hops with some biscuit malt. Tastes like grassy, earthy, and citrusy hops with enough biscuit and caramel malt to balance it out nicely. Medium in body and moderate in carbonation. Very drinkable. Nothing exciting but a solid EPA for sure, and definitely something I’d be open to going back to.
