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.

Darker then I expected it to be, Zoe pours dark brown with reddish highlights. Two finger khaki head. Good retention and lacing. Piney hop nose. Mouthwatering. Tastes so much better then it smells and thats saying something. Lighter then expected but not thin at all. I could drink this all night. Another Maine beer that should be sought out.

Chilled, served in a tulip glass

A - pours a deep amber/brown, quite dark, lots of soft light brown head with good retention

S - citrus hops, complex malts - crackers and some raisin

T - good mix of hops up front with a solid malty, fruity backbone, follows the nose

M - very smooth, super drinkable

O - I will definitely seek this out again. Great first offering I've had from Maine Beer Co

A- Beautiful pillowy head that refuses to go away sits atop a perfect brownish amber ale. Remarkably unable to see through this ale, minimal effervescence with the exception of the exquisite foam at the top.

S- I'm getting some caramel to go along with citrus notes. Really nice yeasty bread notes as well.

T- This ale makes you want to chug a 7.2% ABV and go looking for more. This is smooth and there is no astringency whatsoever. All of the smell is present in the taste in perfect proportions.

M- Love this mouthfeel because of how smooth it is. Perfect balance between sweet and bitter keeps sending you back for another sip.

O- This is my first Maine Beer Company beer and it certainly won't be my last. I didn't get a hold of this until 3 months after it's brew date and it's still one of the best ales I've had. I was told that "Lunch" IPA is even better, if that's the case I will be amazed.
