Pint on tap at Helen's in Machias, Maine.

Appearance: Pours a mostly clear gold/amber with a short white crown of foam. Carbonation present. Some lacing left behind.

Aroma: Floral hops with some malt.

Taste: Tasty pale ale! Nice mix of floral, grassy hops and caramel malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: On the low side of medium depth. Sessionable.

Overall: Very nice pale ale from the Queen City. Had been looking forward to trying something from this brewery and they did not disappoint.

Excellent American pale ale! Hoppy beer but nothing to crazy with a slight citrus undertone. Slight pleasent aftertaste but disappears quickly. This is my local go to micro brew. Pairs great with spicy foods. At this pub it is a perfect match with the boneless wings.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazed orange-gold color with a thin, filmy, white coating. Nose of subtle hops and citrus highlights, both blended and light. Flavors of strong, bitter and resiny hops with a huge grapefruit highlight. Tangy and bitter aftertaste, with a clean, peppery finish. Tasty.
