This threw me for a loop. I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting a doppelbock. Poured out to a nice dark amber in the glass. Aroma is that of malt and raisins. Taste is that of malt with fruit thrown in. Enjoyable, warming, but not a session beer. Very tasty. dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2003
Decent English style pale ale, nice citrus aroma, weak on the malts with a decent hop finish

Nice dark colour, a little dark compared to a 'normal' pale ale, but a nice shade. A clean semi-hoppy smell. Initially hoppy with an overpowering carbonation and absence of aftertaste. JFGrind (2042) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2003
For an English type Pale Ale it had more hops than I was expecting. aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Darker than expected with a floral, grapey nose. Slightly overcarbonated with disappointing thin head. Sweet honey taste, dry finish. Very drinkable, wish I had another.

Maine’s original craft brew, right here. I suppose its flavor reflects the time in which it was created, the mid 1980s. This is a flavorful brew that does not depart drastically from what people were used to at the time - the malt and hops flavor is subdued while still solidly present. I like it alright, but its not a favorite. vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2002
Has a light yellow color and not much of a smell. Taste lightly malted and finishes with slight bitterness. Overall this is not a bad beer, but nothing special. stephen (308) - California, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Bad bottle - I hope. Metallic, stale floral hop flavor. Finished sour. Not enjoyable. Nonians99 (8) - hingham, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2002 does not count

Light amber hue. Yeast and light citrus aromas. Clinging whitish head. Light bodied, light malts first, crisp quenching faint hopped finish.
