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.

A: not a great looking beer. Has this dark redish color with almost the pale hue. The head and lacing however are pretty good.
S: THe best part about this beer, i smell grapefruit, hops, and a piney resin.
T: To me this tasted a lot like an ipa. Very hoppy and bitter. I got lots of grapefruit out of it and as the beer warmed i got more and more resiny piney taste that im not a big fan of.
M: actually quite good very nice but a little sticky

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Reddish brown in color. When moved into the light, it has more of a resemblance to a hazy copper. Two plus fingers of tan head that hold strong with their retention. Once faded, it leaves a Swiss cheese-like lacing.

S: Big, juicy fruit scents of grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. A healthy portion of pine in there to make this super appealing.

T: Very piney and earthy. Fruit that was in the nose is a little more subtle than the it would've implied, but not to a fault. Overall maltiness seems just right. The layering of flavors is great.

M: Medium body and medium carb. Pretty clean and refreshing for 7% above brew.

O: Incredible. if only more ambers were as well put together as this one. Ambers have always been tough for me because I find they are either too hoppy, not hoppy enough, or too malty. Zoe strikes the balance.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

500ml bottle poured into tulip 13/4/14

A murky looking root beer with sediment and tiny pieces of yeast and enough clarity to see bubbles going up the side, three fingers of dark tan head slowly falls leaving rings deep down the glass I can easily count 8 and that's something you don't see everyday, still a little foam at the bottom

S grapefruit, lemon, manderine orange, spruce, leafy earthy notes, Iced tea powder, brown sugar, caramel, and faint coco, well balanced with a fair bit going on from both the malt and hops

T slightly more malty notes in the mouth, dark bread, lots of burnt brown sugar, still has plenty of citrus and earthy notes, tastes great but the nose has something extra working for it

M leaning towards full, not as much carbonation as you would guess from the massive well retained foam but still creams up a little, not quite sticky on the lips, leafy citrus lingers

O another winner from Maine, well balanced and has plenty going on, didn't take much time to drink the bottle, just a couple sips left at this point

I've had 4 beers from Maine and all have been great, its been a while since I've been this impressed by my first crack at a brewery. Find their beers and drink them, and send me a bottle of Lunch!!
