Pale golden with a fluffy white head of foam. Aroma are of fresh, slightly sweet malts, some graininess, and some light hops. The taste follows suit. Malt and hops in small doses and good balance. Not a challenging beer at all, but a great light ale. Mouthfeel is smooth and drinkability is average.

Another well made Maine beer. Again the focus here in Maine seems to be fresh and highly drinkable-easy like the state itself. Here we see a pale sraw color wth almost no head. Pure barley aromatics. Light bodied and very grain driven with fresh malty flavors and subtle hopping. This is a clean, refreshing and solid brew worth trying if in the area. A nice lunch choice with a fried haddock sandwich and some chips.

A micro-brewed light beer. The brew was a light golden colour with a slight head that turned into a nice, white lace. The scent was hoopy and husk-grainy. The taste was predictably light with a fair hop flavor, but little malt. Dry and slightly unbalanced. The feel was dry and light.

This brew was a drinkable light and dry. Not bad as far as light beers go. This is not typical of Sebago Brewing.
