3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle into a pint. This is one sessionable pale ale. It doesnt really have the hop presence I would expect from this remote NH town nor the headiness of a northeast microbrew. Rather bland and unfullfilling for a pale ale. color is a dark and musky brown orange. Taste is flat hops, countered by weak malts and average citrus. this is an average beer. not horrible, quite easy to drink, but still lacking the greatness to excel it over the edge. Head is nice and giant when poured, then shrinks down to islands over the murky brown sludge water. Ok pale ale here.

On tap at the Holiday Inn, Portsmouth, NH. An attractive golden amber pour with a thin white head; perfumed aroma; light biscuity malt taste; and a soft fruity finish. Quite refined and elegant for an APA.

Draft at dinner last night with my wife. Clear golden pour with a white film for a head. Not much going on with the aroma, bready malts, some citrusy hops, but very muted. Taste is just plain beer, not overly malty, not much hop character, just beer. Easy drinking and brewed in NH, so that scores some points with me.

Solid beer a little bit low on flavor but overall a good pale ale. I would like to visit the brewery.

Pours hazy amber copper with a small thin white head. Aroma is caramel, citrus and a hint of earthyness. Taste is mild bitters with some sweetness. Medium bodied. More malty then hoppy.

Pours a cloudy, dark gold. Nose of malt...lacks citrus typical of APA. Taste of sweet bready malt, followed by some muted bitterness. Almost like a cross between an APA and a pilsner. Very drinkable, but not all that interesting.

Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Light golden-copper color - very cloudy. Aroma is both malt and hops. Pretty good - both malty and hoppy, but with some esthery flavors.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BOTM club. Pours a hazy golden orange with dissipating off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is faint, bready biscuit grains and a metallic twinge. Taste is better, slight hop presence up front, then a dry pale malt back. Decent, but nothing crazy.
