Chart a new course with Daymark as your guide. We start with a classic, clean and crisp American pale ale brewed with spicy Columbus and Centennial hops. Then we accent the grain bill with rye grown on small local family farms right here in Maine and malted to our specifications at Valley Malts, an artisanal malt house. Finally we dry hop the finished beer for a bright floral aroma.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on February 12, 2015

The pour is yellow with a long lasting white foamy head. Busy carbonation.

The aroma has a grainy malt character but a notable lemongrass or at least lemon citrus note.

Light to medium body.

The taste also has a grainy, grassy taste with that lemon bite.

Sampling a cold bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle was "born" 8/11/14. The beer pours a clear bright golden hue with bleached white head of 2 cm foaming up. Head is frothy and fades slowly leaving some scattered lattice as it drops. There is a bit of cloudy sediment towards the bottom of the bottle that creates some wisps of beige spiraling through the beer.
Aroma is mild with some grainy malt and a bit of floral hops. I also get just a whiff of spicy rye, but that is even more mild. The nose is appealing but generally not very robust.
First sip reveals a light body with very fine and tingly carbonation. The beer drinks very easy. Flavor is some sweet caramel, grainy malt and some grassy hops on the finish. the hops are crisp and linger a bit after each swallow. My palate also dries out quite a bit on the finish.
No real rye hints and certainly no ABV either. the burps are all hops with grass and herbal tea notes.
Quite a quaffable brew and well made. The rye having just a bit more flavor profile would enhance the beer, but otherwise I enjoy this one.

A: slight haze; light gold in color; a lot of bubbles rising; 1 finger white head that receded to a thick cap; light lacing;

S: muted; slightly floral;

T: perfumy; gets more intense through mid-palate and then begins to fade toward the end; no real malt character; no rye character;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: the perfumy hops need something to balance them out;

Clean, refreshing, light hoppy and a revelation. One of the best pale ales from New England. Taste doesn't linger too long on palate.

A - Pale hazy blond body with nice foamy white head. Very good retention and lacing.

S - Lemon grass hops and rye spiciness

T - Lemon and floral hops upfront followed by nice rye maltiness.

M - Medium/light body with moderate/high carbonation. Slick, wet, and very drinkable.

O - This was great. Not overly complex but a good light and dry rye ale. Would make a great barbecue sixer.
