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.

2/5 rDev -42%

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 its 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.

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.
