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"!

On tap. Pours a dark copper with almost no head. Minimal lacing. Aromas of caramel malts, earth and some spicy hops. Taste is much like the aroma. Caramel malts upfront with some floral spicy hop notes. A bit earthy and sweet. Somewhat of a root beer taste to this one. Light and crisp. Floral finish. Overall, decent beer ideal for the cooler months. Nothing special but worth trying.

Serving type: on-tap
