It honestly is a real treat every time I get to drink a beer from the Blue Hills Brewery. I have taken a few tours and have hiked the Blue hills many times and is a pleasant experience whenever I get the opportunity to visit the area. As far as I know this is a new beer by the Blue Hills, so lets dig in.

A: This beer pours a hazy, golden, lager color with a solid 1-in soapy white head that is slow to dissipate, so hard to tell any lacing at this point.

S: I get some sweet malts and earthy notes up front that consists of a slight hint of passion fruit and clove with some spice at the end.

T: Taste up front is a strong, sweet herbal flavor like a basil or parsley flavor. Through the middle I get some spice, a little malt, and some citrus hops. The finish is of dry yeast and gives off a bready aftertaste.

M: Very earthy with an enigmatic variety of flavors, full bodied but not much carbonation to speak of. Very drinkable for me.

O: A very good pale ale, not too dry and very full with its flavors. I only got a 12oz bottle, but I would definitely love a bomber of this. Prices for these beers are more expensive in stores, but if you get a chance to visit the brewery, you can get a 220z for $3.00. Never had a bad beer by this brewery which is very underrated. Once again, another solid brew from the Blue Hills!
