Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Flagship offering, Back East Ale is a medium-bodied amber ale. This amber-colored beer features a subtle fruity aroma with hints of vanilla and peach. It has a smooth malt character that is nicely balanced with just a slight hop bitterness and a clean, crisp finish. Once you taste this favorite, we're sure you'll be reaching for another "Back East"!

Poured from the can into my Delirium tulip.

Appeared a dark brown, see through color with a 1 finger light brown head.

Smells extremely malty right off the bat, slight dark fruit scent - raisins and figs are dominant.

Taste is extremely malty. A bit too much for my liking but not bad. Lots of dark fruit flavors. Would have liked a bit more balance with the hops.

Mouthfeel was about average.

Overall, not my favorite but not bad either. A bit too malty for my liking.
