Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma has some caramel and light earthy hops. Flavor is very earthy and very bitter...a bit nutty. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is very bitter and dry.
2016 version is 6.8% assuming same beer idea. Bright Amber pour had in patio midday. Nose is fresh hops and dried leaves. Tastes of fruit stripes gum, leaves, pine, floral. Some caramel sweetness to finish. Decent Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a brown/orange colored body with a one finger white foamy head that takes a good minute before slowly dieing. Some nice speckled spider-web lacing leads gently into the body. Some light carbonation is seen rising.
The smell is sweet with some light hops entering in with a bit of pine and citrus.
The taste is sweet, once again, but the hops are fairly strong with a mild citrus taste.
The palate is about a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, sessionable.
Overall, out of all Sebago’s offerings, this is probably my all time favorite brew by them. TaktikMTL (7739) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013

Draught @ GLB. This is a nice simple pale with straightforward malt flavor and a nice subtle hop bite. vodka4blood (152) - Miltonboro, Vermont, USA - JAN 6, 2013
A very nice pale ale which served as an effective palate-cleanser between the cheesy toast I just ate and whatever food I consume next..... Is this a borderline IPA?? It doesnt say what type of ale is in there on the label....

Draft at The Pony Bar. Made with all Maine-grown ingredients. Fresh and hoppy, with some pine resin in the flavor. Impressive, and a cool idea - I’ve always been a fan of Maine - but ends up being a little too bitter. JStax (6366) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks go lukaduke. Pours a very hazy copper color with a beige cap of foam. The aroma has light resinous and a cotton candy note. The taste doesn’t have much in the way of bitterness until the finish. Sweetness is dominant here. BeerFanDan17 (1107) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - OCT 11, 2012
A very smooth and fresh tasting ale. Good hop notes and a lightly sweet malty feel.

Pours a deep copper color with an aggressive eggshell colored head... nice sticky lacing. Subtle aromas of malty sweet honey and touches of citrus to help brighten it up a bit. The palate is much the same with a good clean malt flavor that holds the pace for subtle spicy citrusy earthy hop notes to mingle. Good balance decent beer just wish the hop presence was a bit bigger considering the label is plastered with them. Nice bitter finish....
