4.3/5 rDev +2.1%
Dark amber, with a great lacing of medium tan head. Smell is full of earthy caramel, pungent, citrus and pine, quite light. Taste is delicious, yumyum, lots of citrusy hops, a bit spicy, pine notes, strong hoppy profile is matched with a good malt backbone, really dry on the finish with crisp caramel malts, drying out with some black pepper. A perfectly balanced delicious red hoppy ale. Plenty sessionable with a really delicious hop flavour and spice to it, another great beer from MBC.

4.08/5 rDev -3.1%
A - Very foamy off-white/cream head after a generous pour into a pint glass. The body is a dark amber and syrupy. Beautiful lacing.
S - You have to lean in for the aroma of a light chocolate. The hops are strong and centered... I wish I had a chance to try this beer a bit earlier. The date on the bottle is 6/17/14.... I'm almost two months late.
T - Well, despite my tardiness, the beer remains damn refreshing. Notes of almonds and chocolate surround the crisp hops. Taste doesn't linger... ends with a nice, clean finish. Medium carbonation.
M - Medium mouthfeel here, almost light. It definitely looks like it would be a heavier beer, pouring almost like a stout.
O - Very tasty amber ale... another win for Maine Beer Company. Steep pricetag, however, over $7.... making this a once-in-a-while beer. If you're a fan of MBC, make sure you give this one a shot.

500 ml bottle, with bottled on date 05/20/2014. Another new beer to me from Maine Beer Company; I have good expectations since these guys have impressed me so far.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a dark caramel amber color, but appears a dark sunset red in the glass. Three big fluffy frothy fingers of khaki tan head. The head recedes to a nice fluffy rocky surface with lots of thin lacing on the glass. On the darker side of things for the style, I would say, but a very nice appearance for the beer.
S - The aroma is very interesting and inviting, also. Very earthy, twiggy, & herbal. Caramel malts, and some yeast. Not a particularly exciting aroma, but the quality of the ingredients definitely shows through.
T - Taste follows the nose - caramel malts, herbal, earthy, and leafy. Some resinous / piney hop presence is noticeable, but I'd say the malts are the more major player. Dark and roasty at times, almost to the point where you forget you a drinking an amber ale.
M - The feel is smooth, creamy, & fluid. Medium-full bodied, with good carbonation.
Overall, another quality beer from Maine Beer Company; these guys seem to put out consistently good beers, and I look forward to more from them.
