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.

4.63/5  rDev +10%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

2010 Vintage 16.9 oz bottle poured into goblet.

A: Pours a hazy amber with a massive 4-finger head. Between this and Spring Peeper Ale, I'm constantly amazed at the size of the heads on MBC beers.

S: Perhaps the "freshest" smelling beer I've ever come across. This smells like a pine forest, with grapefruit and toasted malts coming through. Unbelievable.

T: Taste is similar to smell, with the extreme hop notes toned down just enough. Swings back and forth between a brown, red and amber ale. Very enjoyable.

M: Nice, unobtrusive mouthfeel makes this go down even easier.

D: As far as a west-coast style east-coast ale, this one takes the cake. Spring Peeper was very good; this is incredible.

Do not miss this.

Another great beer from Maine Beer Company. As usual, this beer is dry rather than sweet, crisp, and has a nice hoppy profile without reliance on big citrus notes. Very balanced with a long bitterness, and enough very dry malt to sustain the piney and herbal hops. A lighter colored amber than many, and the malt is downplayed in favor of the hops. Delicious!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A- Dark brown and clear with a massive tan head. Fades to leave lots of fluffy lacing.

S- Roasted Maltiness and hops. Slightly dank. Smell is subdued.

T- Bitter hops with a big malty backbone. The bitterness surprised me in a good way. A very enjoyable beer.

M- Medium body with lots of carbonation. The alcohol is there but well masked.

O- I liked it. I would get again on occasion.
