Had a 14-ouncer on tap at Hadlock Field, home of your Portland Sea Dogs, in Portland, Maine.
Appearance: Pours an attractive amber with a frothy off-white head that sticks around for a long time. Lacing is heavy. Looks good; happy to be drinking this on a frigid April day.
Aromas: Nose is kind of faint, but there's a a note of maltiness and some caramel along with hop bitterness.
Taste: Very good red ale. Tastes include caramel, malt sweetness, toffee and some earthy backbone. Really good.
Mouthfeel: This has a good, sturdy body and an approachable flavor profile. Easy on the palate. Kind of surprised the IBU is so high; not super bitter.
Overall: I love a good red ale, and this is one. Really tasty set of flavors and enough complexity to keep you interested. I was bummed when it was finished, but with the low ABV, it wouldn't be too wild to have another.
