On tap at the Portland brewpub.


A: Pours a clear, amber-copper body with off-white head. I can't really comment on retention since it came in a taster size (4oz) courtesy of a server.

S: Mild aromas of toasted biscuit and grass.

T: This is where the beer shines. It finishes with an unmistakable, memorable flavor of bitter aspirin and fish. Yes, fish. I handed the sampler to alfrantzell and had him check. I compared it to salmon, while he likened it to trout. Perhaps my palate is damaged. I should be able to discern between various fish species. Either way, this didn't get finished.

O: If I can't even finish 4oz...
