12oz bottle courtesy a good friend, thanks Matt!

Pours clear gold with only the slightest chill haze and an inch-plus head of white. Plenty of torn sheets of lacing and a mostly solid skim coat on the surface for the duration.

Aromatics lead off with crackery and biscuity malt, peppery grains, cloves, and a hint of honey.
Faint yellow apples and pear skins follow through.

On the light side of medium bodied with a fairly crisp mouthfeel.

Honey-drizzled malt, biscuit ends, and a spicy bitterness starts the palate. The firm bitterness continues with clove-studded apple skins and a tannic dryness flowing underneath.

Finishes crisp and quick with faint malt, peppery hops, and a slight astringency.

Tasty enough but beyond the subtle nicities, the tannic astringency takes away some of the fresh character which you hope would be abundant in a "house" or "table" beer. I wonder if this beer is second runnings from thier triple?

Allagash House Beer pours a slightly hazy gold with a moderate sized, rocky white head on top. The foam fades slowly and leaves a sticky netted pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma is spicy with citrus notes blended in. Orange and lemon citrus, pepper, clove, ripe fruit, and bread are all present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth with mild carbonation. The flavor is more subtle than the aroma. Lemon citrus and light fruit (apple/pear) are present, but not as strong. It's bready with some light spice notes at the end. Finishes dry and mildly tart with a taste of Belgian yeast. Once gone the bread and yeast notes linger on the palate.

This is an easy drinking well balanced beer.Tasty and not overpowering with Belgian yeast character.
