A foggy golden color. A crisp smooth slightly lemony taste. Just a bit of hops not quite an IPA but more of an Ale.

Greenport Harbor Ale 12 oz. bottle cooled to about 42F poured into a simple glass in April, 2018.

The body is a slightly hazy healthy amber. The head is creamy and fairly stable. I get a slight fresh aroma of fermented malt. The flavor is fairly well balanced, with a modest malt mouthfeel backed up by hop flavor that delivers a tasty flavor with a good dose of bitterness. Some lacing clings to the glass. The hoppy bitter aftertaste is a nice feature that isn't too common in modern American pale ales. The alcohol content, reputed to be 5.3%, is moderate and right where I like it. This is a solid ale that I was an early fan of when I could get it on draft at a convenient bar. I think the bottled beer is going to become one of my regular purchases.

I like this ale brewed with wheat malt and a blend of Warrior, Glacier, and Cascade hops, which provide a wonderful aroma...

Pours an at first slightly cloudy straw golden color that later clears up. An aggressive pour yielded a big thumbnail and a half length bubbly head that disapates into a creamy lace that retains well.
My favorite aspect of this brew is the sweet fruity aroma; hints of strawberry jam and citrus, caramel, honey and some floral and pine qualities.
The taste is also sweet but balanced by a slight lemony quality. The hops are mild, herbal and a bit piny. The feel is medium to light. The carbonation is soft but provides a light crispness. Very easy to drink.
I like this one. It is simple and not too complex but rather tasty.

Bought it because I lite to support the Long Island breweries. Unfortunately just an average APA. Slightly bitters hops but not overwhelming, citrus notes. Would not turn one down but would not go out of my way to buy again.

Just average. head dissspirsed quickly and no lacing. not a bad beer but nothing special. malty and yeasty. not getting a lot of other flavors. i would drink again if someone gave me a glass but i'd rather order something else. from LI so i wanted this to b great but hopefully i'll find another brew i like.
