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.

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.
