3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Just found the notes to this.
This was poured into a pint glass from a 22 oz bottle.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light foamy lacing that trickled down the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nice blend of sweet citrus and piney and grapefruit hops over top of some light sweet caramel malts.
The taste was mainly sweet through all of the previously mentioned flavors that ended up leading to a fairly decent dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not overbearing at times. It almost wanted to go the extra distance of pounding my tongue into submission but it didn’t.
Overall, well, hey uh...I’ll have it again. Nothing wrong with this one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask. Pours a slightly hazy light copper body with a foamy white head that left some nice lacing. The nose is real nice, some bright citrusy hops with a light caramel malt base. The flavor is pretty decent as well, soft subtle hops, light bitterness, light to moderate biscuity malt. Fairly dry overall. Soft and subtle mouthfeel with a light to medium body, nice soft cask carbonation feel to it. Pretty nice APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(22 oz. from Bootleggers) Pours hazy gold-light amber with a sticky off-white head. Aroma of citrus-grapefruit with caramel and vanilla underneath. Mouthfeel medium-full, fairly smooth but with some pebbly texture. Lots of sticky, messy lacing. Flavor of fresh citrus-grapefruit hoppiness over lighter caramel and vanilla with a nice hoppy bitter bite in the finish. Keeps up the good work Sebago has been doing with hoppy beers a la Local Harvest Ale.
