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

Rich coppery color with active carbonation and off white head
Sweet malt aroma
Light malty taste with a nice touch of bitterness from the hops at the end
Mouthful is tingly, from carbonation, but light
Overall it is a nice spring beer - light, colorful, good carbonation.
Goes down easy and does give a taste of spring during this thaw.

The pour produced a dark gold and amber body with a thick, frothy head. Aroma presented notes of caramel, some slight esters, and a faint hint of nuts. Taste came with across semi-sweet caramel flavor and nicely countered with a moderate bitterness. The body was medium.

This was a nice find and my first beer I've had in Maine. It was warming and very tasty with a good malt sweetness and body, all nicely complimented with a well-balanced hop presence. It was worth the two cans I had to wash down my lobster-stuffed haddock at Warren's Lobster Restaurant in Kittering, Maine. Ah, but this would be an excellent lager on its own merits!

From the green can. Sampled on June 21, 2013

The pour is copper-brown with a very foamy off-white head. Good clarity and carbonation.

The aroma is malt forward and sweet with a slight grainy character.

The body is medium.

The taste has a semi-sweet grainy and caramel malty note with a solid bitterness tagging itself onto the end. The bitterness was what impressed me the most because it felt so well balanced.
