Draft pint at The Docksider in Northeast Harbor, ME - a cool little fishing shack on the harbor near Acadia National Park. Medium brown in color with red highlights topped by a beige cap that retained. A nice fresh aroma, floral and grassy. A lightish smooth sipper with a grassy biscuit taste and a tangy finish. Good with the grilled haddock and mashed potatoes.

This was poured into a pint glass at the brewery. The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to red color with a slim cap of a white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sticking and then sliding. The smell had a decent roasty creamy nutty to caramel maltiness glossing underneath my nose. The taste was mainly sweet with an ample roasty caramel - ness to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there with a decent smooth quality to it. Overall, not a bad beer but mostly just okay.
