On Draft at Ebenizer's Pub in Maine. A fantastic, well balanced brew, with an incredible smell that begs for consumption. Great mouth-feel and easy to drink, but with a dangerous ABV.

Not quite as good as expected. Poured at a good temperature; it was a gusher; with a small, cream-colored head that settled to a thin island and ring, no lace. Color would be a clear, but for the large amount of tiny particulates in suspension, amber. Aroma is yeast, malt, mustard, fruit. Flavor is more bitter then tang, then sweet. Although in the finish it's sweet and tang that linger. Otherwise, also like nose. Body has some clashes between bitter and tang along with some heavy boozieness.
