Bottle at the Gingerman. Pours cloudy golden amber with bone white head. Nose/taste of hops, pale malt, pineapple husks, pink grapefruit rind and resinous pine. Dryish bitter finish. Medium body. Clean. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 7, 2011
A: The beer pours a hazy orange color with a couple fingers of white head.
S: Starts out with a solid aroma of citrus hops, particularly orange with a more mild grapefruit note. There is a bit of malt character to it as well. Plenty of pale malt giving a bit of bread aroma and a light sweetness.
T: The sweet malt notes are more pronounced on the palate than expected. That said, still fairly hoppy. A touch of grass to go with all the citrus fruit and citrus peel. There is a mild pine note which provides some bitterness.
M: On the lighter side of medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Really a solid pale ale. So far I’ve been impressed with the Maine Beer Co. offerings I’ve tried. Ferris (15288) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle - Lemon grass hops and a touch of spice. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light citrus and grassy hops. Light pale malt sweetness to balance and slight bitter finish. bhensonb (15195) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bomber from Half Time. Pours very light gold with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma is light pitted fruit and citrus. Med minus body. Flavor is floral and quite fruity. Light pitted fruits like nectarine. It is crisp and clean. It’s also finishing fruity bitter. Malt? Yeah, there’s arguably some lightly roasted malt backbone. But screw the backbone(tho it is necessary). This is ephemerally hoppy in a laid back East Coast style. Yum! Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2011
