Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a hazy, yellow golden color. There was a bit of a white head on it. The aroma is nice. Floral, citrus, hint of spices, earthy: a lot going on there. The taste is good. Floral, grassy, citrus, spice, earthy. A bit lighter and a touch dry to the finish. Very Nice!

On tap at brewery served in a tulip.

Appearance: hazy straw yellow color, some tight foamy head that went away quickly and left rafts of bubbles.

Smell: outstanding aroma from this one. Floral, earthy, citrus, fruity, bready, yeasty. Big explosion on the aroma.

Taste: Kind of a let down after the wonderful aroma. Some light citrus, floral/herbal notes, just a hint of sourness and earthiness. Problem was it didn't last long enough to create as much impact as the aroma. Not bad, just somehow not "enough".

Mouthfeel: watery and thin, carbonation was pretty good. Very dry and light, a little tingle from the carbonation.

Overall: while I liked the beer and flavors, it just seemed somehow insufficient. It was refreshing and light, but somehow the overall was not highly satisfying. Good beer, easy drinking, glad to have tried.

This beer poured out in a hazy golden straw yellow color with a tight white head.

The aroma was quite brilliant with tons of floral notes, citrus, a bit of barnyard funk, breadiness, but in general, just tons of refreshing sweet fruits.

The flavor followed with a bit of citrus and floral notes, but then it dissipates quite quickly. The beer really lacks both flavor and carbonation.

The finish is a bit metallic, but not too offensive.

In the end, this beer was too watery and boring tasting. The aroma definitely held this beer up compared to the taste, but still a disappointment of Maine Beer.
