4.6/5  rDev +27.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Vessel: Purchased in a 22 oz. bottle, consumed from a classic pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a clean reddish brown with a finger of white head that dissipated slowly.

Smell: Sweet malty notes

Taste: A perfect balance of sweet smooth maltyness with a nice subtle but present hop bite.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body, smooth and refreshing. Zero after taste.

Overall: This beer just simply hits the mark. It finds a great balance between sweet, bitter, and smooth. Frankly I was very surprised and excited how good this beer is from a new brewery. I hope their other beers will remain as high quality as this one. It is my new favorite amber ale for sure.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a darker amber, with a 2 finger bubbly head. Head had no cling, and started shrinking immediately. Plenty of carbonation rose from the bottom. Primary smell seemed to be a grainy yeast. A bit of sweetness, almost banana, but not much. Flavor was slightly sweet, almost a bit of mellow banana fruit. A bit of pepper spice towards the back, but nothing major, just enough to give it a kick. Coated fairly well, but finished up a bit thin and watery for some reason. Overall, not bad. Fairly mellow, but with enough flavor to stay interesting.

Label dated 2/17/13

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on March 10, 2013.

The pour is a medium amber with a tremendous off-white puffy head that lingers and a slight cloudiness.

The aroma is mellow and sweet with malts and a mild caramel scent. The hops are downplayed on the nose.

The body is about medium and on the smooth side.

The flavor begins with a bready sweetness and then evolves into a low to moderate bitter hop ending. Not a lingerer but actually quite nice. This is a drinkable take on a classic style. Looking forward to the beers from this brewery.

Picked up this bomber a while back, $7.49 at Dover Discount Beverage, Dover NH. Bottled on 5/19/13. The date is filled in by hand, so you know this is small batch stuff. Served cold in a tulip.

A: Perfectly clear, cherry red brew. Nice looker. 1/2" of fizzy tan foam settled quickly.

S: Mild malty sweetness.

T: Clean crisp malt sweetness. Mild hop bitterness.

M: Carbo is a bit too aggressive, swirled the glass a bit to tame it down. 6.5% abv is respectable, not at all detected.

O: Really simple brew, nothing complicated, but enjoyable. Got yeast on the second pour, which added some earthy complexity. Probably should've had it when it was newer.

Pours a mostly clear deep amber brown color with a decent sized fluffy off white head that persists for quite a while. The aroma is a nice mix of caramel, toffee, sweet and brown sugars with a light but present aroma of citrus and light earth and pine. The flavor is malty with a fruity edge to it and a light bit of hop presence. Sweet caramel and sugary malts with quite a bit of toffee flavor to round things out. There's a firm earthy hop presence to attempt to counter the sweetness, but this one leans more towards the malty side. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet light syrupy mouthfeel. This is a nice beer, it's not horribly complex, but it's certainly a well made flavorful brew. I can't wait to try some more offerings from this newcomer.

3.54/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: Bomber bottle picked up earlier today. My first experience with this brewery. Chilled and poured into a pint glass. Bottled on date (hand written) of 3/2/2013.

Appearance: Light brown to burnt amber in color. Pours a thick, frothy two finger head with really nice retention. Really nice sticky lacing.

Aroma: Some light pine and earthy hop tones. A light caramel malt backbone too. Pretty good balance, as neither are really assertive at all.

Taste: Some light pine hop notes with a light caramel backbone. The malt is not really that strong so it feels a bit watery at some points. The aftertaste is also a bit bitter, a bit soapy and a touch earthy.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and a bit watery. I feel this could use a bit more carbonation.

Overall, this really doesn't stand out at all among the style. The hops really don't contribute enough complexity and the malt backbone is not strong enough. It's not bad, but considering the price point, I probably will skip over this in the future.
