Notes/Commercial Description:
Our flagship Pale Ale, released in 1998, is brewed with specialty malts, some grown in Maine, and four types of hops. After fermentation, it is cold conditioned and dry-hopped in lagering tanks for maximum taste and quality. It is naturally carbonated in the bottle or keg using a German process called “krausening”, where a small amount of fresh fermenting wort is added. This produces a delicate carbonation and superior flavor. From the Mash Tun to store shelves is a 30 day process.

12 oz brown bottle with a freshness date on the side of the label.

A- Three fingers of think big bubbled head hold strong with a solid retention, clear dirty golden color.

S- Fruity, nutty with a lingering citric note in the aroma. Shortbread like malt aroma as well.

A- Citric and nutty up front, wet pale malt palate. Medium bitterness from the hops with a quick punch of flavor. Bread grain and more nutty yeast in the finish.

M- Smooth and mildly crisp. Moderate body.

D- Tasty enough to put back more than one, this beer is what New England is all about ... good craft beer.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

Dirty amber, slight haze (unfiltered/bottle-conditioned), orange hues, large-bubbled carbonation action and a foamy white head that snaps down to a still beer.

Light in aroma. Musty grain, light floral, faint bready malts, and a touch of fruitiness in the nose.

Smooth and dullish on the palate – not very lively and a bit watery. Harsh and astringent grainy tannins upfront, minimal sweetness, touch of apple-skin fruitness. Flat, one-dimensional hop bitterness of a light citric orange-zest flash across the palate, some grassy notes, and then it’s gone. Mouthful of unpleasant tannins in the finish, yeasty, drying. Unforgiving in the linger.

A really poor and lackluster example of a Pale Ale. The grainy tannins become this horrible flaw that makes this beer nearly undrinkable.

4.4/5  rDev +27.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Ale pours a pale straw color with a half inch white head. The aroma is that of citrus and mild hops. The flavor is sweet and citrusy with a highly carbonated mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Over all a good beer but very different from most pale ales I've had.

Serving type: on-tap
