Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.

Appearance: It has a nice deep ruby/amber color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted/buiscuity malts, sweet caramel, some nuttiness, light coffee and pine resins.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some roasted/buiscuity malts, some caramel, a definite nuttiness, light coffee and some bitter pine resins.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

Serving type: bottle

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A two finger head was poured that reduced to a small puffy layer. It is an amber color with great clarity when held up to the light and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pine hops, chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, nutty, and toasted malts.

Taste: Same as above. Nice blend of ingredients with mild tingly bitterness in the rear. Hop flavor lasts all the way through the sip.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and mild bitterness.

Overall: Mmmm, I have forgotten how good this beer tasted. Need to make sure I have it more often.

01/28/14 From bottle dated 12/10/13 at home.

Pretty pour. Great rich copper color. Thick full head. Inviting aroma that lead me down a primrose path to expected balance.

First taste was the hops. Very up front & never gave ground. I enjoyed this but as an un-hoppy guy, one will do. If you like hops, you will love this beer.

It's apparent that a lot of care went into this glass. I need to dig into the Maine repertoire to find my match.
