Peeper is a 5.5% American pale ale from Maine Beer Company.

This beer pours a golden straw, with a thick, foamy head that lingers with good carbonation.

The smell is floral and grassy with a hint of citrus zest and pepper.

Taste is rather dry up front, with the floral notes coming through. Minimal hop flavor, all the way through with a lingering pine.

Bottle poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden straw with a frothy white head that hangs around and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Floral, grassy, zesty citrus, a little peppery, faint fruity notes, crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

T: Bright, floral, zesty citrus, lemon, a little peppery, grassy, faint nectarine, passion fruit, and berries, crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Refreshing, light crisp pale ale, but I can't say it's worth the price of admission with so many other interesting beers out there.

16.9 fl oz bottle 4/17/18 poured into a pint glass, a semi hazy gold with a two and half finger head that retains for the majority of the drink. A citrusy piney aroma and the taste followed suit, with mild bread/malt notes underneath. The feel was medium, with a medium low amount of carbonation. Overall, a tasty APA that is almost sessionable, but with a little more citrus/hops than a standard APA.

Thrilled to find this in Ohio, :

Pours golden with 3 fingers + pillowy ivory head. Hazes a bit; lovely head retention & lacing

S: Bready, grassy

T: Follows the nose, grainyness as well, some crackery dryness up front. A little lemon, graasyness & white pepper, & even some sage, plus dryness as this warms.

MF: Medium body, delicate/fluffy carbonation, nice balance

Drinks so easy, a very delicate, well crafted APA, but believe I may have a less than prime example

Served on tap into a conical pint glass at Waxy O'Connor's in Lexington, Massachusetts.
A: Pours a hazy golden to amber color with a half inch, white lead with modest retention and so-so lacing.
S: Aromas of peach, grapefruit, mango, and cookie predominate in that order.
T: Peach/nectarine, lemon zestiness, and pine all evident, as are lightly caramelized malts. Light bitterness offsets other flavors leaving a crisp, refreshing finish.
M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: A enjoyable, very drinkable and refreshing American Pale Ale. Wish it were available in my area.
