Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a hazy, orange-gold coloring with a filmy, white head. The head quickly settles into a sparse surface coating. Nose of light toffee and biscuit, with citrus highlights. Flavors of citrus blend on a subtle bready backbone. Peppery and resiny hops characters at the end of the profile. Spice and bitter aftertaste, with a clean, slick finish. Very easy to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

Atlantic Brewing Co.
Bar Harbor Summer Ale
LOOK: Pours a dark golden color, with a perfect clarity. The white loosely bubbled head formed briefly before departing forever.
SMELL: Grainy aroma of malt, crackery yeast, possible some adjuncts and perhaps wheat. Light citrus notes are apparent as well.
TASTE: Like the smell, grainy, faint pils malt, cooked corn, rice, wheat etc. Hops provide acidity and a small peppery spice, quite possibly including some coriander.
FEEL: Thin, light bodied, loose carbonation. Makes for an easy to drink, readily accessible summer option, which was definitely the brewers intent.
OVERALL: Refreshing for sure. Not earth shattering, and the flavors and aroma aren't great. A like able beer, just very plain and attenuated.
Serving type: bottle
