Cloudy pale yellow,fluffy three finger white head,lots of lacing in the glass.

The citrus vibe is present aroma in the form of fresh lemon zest,some pine in there as well.

Crisp and snappy flavor,hop forward APA that takes on the lemon quality more so than any that I have tasted thus far. Good amount of lingering bitterness at the back, dry finish that is very satisfying, and what many would consider an ideal summer beverage.

Mouthfeel is the lighter side of medium, spot on carbonation, easy drinking and enjoyable.

It took me a while to get around to reviewing Peeper because every time I picked one up, my left coast buddies wanted it in in their box! This is another solid effort from MBC, and one that is almost always in stock nice and fresh (this bottle was 3 weeks old). Completely worth your time to pick this one up if you can, Maine Beer Co. scores again.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy -golden with long lasting, foamy, white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy, herbal hops and biscuit malt fills the mouth. Finish is long, dry and clean. Very nice session brew.

Sometimes it's just nice to keep things calm and cool. And with this one, Raul is just chilling back hard like Lindsay Lohan after a few valiums and a skinny girl margarita.

Light flavors, maybe even a lil tiny bite - like Tom Cruise nipping at your ankle (in a good way, of course).

Raul could sip on this thang while illin, chillin, and uh, yeah.

Peace!

This beer is a really good American ale. The color was golden red. The taste was very smooth. I really enjoy the mellow tastes of The Maine Beer Companies beers. This is a great ale. This beer has a great smell. It is nice to have an ale with as much taste.
