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.

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!

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.
