Had on tap at Blaze Bar Harbor:

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, medium carbonation, yellow in color, hazy

Smell: light toasted malt and grass

Taste: banana, hay, and grassy hops

Mouthfeel: sweet start with a bitter middle and finish, medium bodied and medium carbonation

Overall: An average to slightly above average example of the style. This one has more bitterness than most I have had in the style. Not bad, but one that I am not likely to have again.

Pint on tap at Arcadia National Bar in Portland, Maine while playing some games of Burger Time.

Appearance: Pours a medium yellow/gold with no head to speak of. Slightly hazy.

Aroma: Smells of banana, faint sugar, toast, and sweet malt.

Taste: That banana note is right there up front. Also some faint citrus, toast, and grass. Nice combination of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Slightly less than medium bodied, but appealing in terms of depth. I don't know where they hide the 7 percent ABV because it's nowhere near noticeable.

Overall: Mighty tasty beer. Sweet enough to work as a dessert offering, but would also pair well with a good meal. I'm not super familiar with the style, or the brewery (yet), but I'm eager to try more of both now.
