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.

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.

Pours a clear orange yellow with a white two finger thick head that dissipates to about a pinky thick. The yeast at bottom of the bottle did not come out along with the beer, Keeping the beer bright and clear.
Pretty well balance aroma of lightly toasted malts and pine from the hops.
Taste doesn't impersonate the smell as much as I'd like it to be. The beer has that crisp mouthfeel and the taste that I associate with a mild pilsner. Nothing wrong with that, as it's a very drinkable beer. However I wouldn't give it a nod as a good pale ale.
