3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a two finger off-white head that lasts leaving good lacing. Aroma of bready slightly nutty malts with an earthy hop character and a touch of caramel. Taste is earthy hops, bready nutty malt, and a touch of caramel in the finish. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness and a crisp drying finish. A damn fine brew.
Bottle. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of caramel and some earthiness. The taste was sweet with some earthiness, toasted caramel, herbs and light crispiness. Ok. Drake (14045) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2015

By the bottle @ the Strand Theater in Rockland while enjoying the musical stylings of the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Light bready malts, hints of grass and a trace of honeyed sweetness. Pretty crisp with a clean lingering bitterness. Pretty easy drinker and true to style. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a brown colored body with a decent sized tan head that lasts about a minute or so and gently recedes. There is a good amount of ringy lacing as the beer goes down.
The smell has a light hop presence with a bit of a grainy maltiness.
The taste has the hops up front but centered with a slight hops bite.
On the palate, it sits about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. Its sessionable, and has a slightly sweet aftertaste with no finish.
Overall, this is a good brew that I would have again. czar (9266) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013

Bottle. I’m qualifying this rating by saying I got an old bottle. It almost feels like they gave me the sample bottle above the bar. Why do they keep these so long? Anyway, it was cloudy and had a bit of phenolic flavor that was off putting. I think I would like a fresh one though as I like the lower amount of hops used on the English Pale Ale than the typical APAs. CamdenD (1197) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2013
Decent malt noise, amber color, taste is a bit watery, drinkablesurely but unimpressive, mostly average. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2013
My favorite part of this beer was the dog on the label. Really not good at all. Looked alright. Maverick34 (3283) - New York, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Draught from the salt exchange in Portland. Amber pour, little head, some malts and such but a very low carbed meh feel overall. joebudzjoe (676) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Bottle from Maine. Barley flavor is the primary basis of this beer with a bitter, grassy hop note adding texture.
