Notes: Now in six pack! This ale is light and crisp, yet retains the body and character of a microbrew.

I brought a bottle of this beer back home from our vacation to Bangor and Bar Harbor. It poured a clear golden with no head and no lace. The scent had faint floral hop. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with floral hop presence and subtle white grape highlights. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Foggy chill haze light amber with a fuzzy, bubbly khaki foam that quickly recedes to nothing but a thin ring.

Smell is golden toasty malt with floral hops and minimal hints of corn and grape.

Taste is semi-sweet toast and grass with floral hops, corn and wheat.

Crisp light body, light carbonation, semi-dry finish.

The appearance had a golden brown colored body with a one finger small white head that died within five seconds, no lacing was seen. Carbonation was seen slowly rising in columns. The smell had some grains at the center with floral grassy notes slightly in the background. The taste was balanced between the floral grassy notes and the grains. Some corn comes out, but nothing offensive. It also slightly sweetens a bit as the beer warms. On the palate, it sat about a light with some carbonation making itself known, yet it wasn’t overbearing. It was pretty drinkable, but the ABV is unknown, so not sure what to say other than sessionable by mouthfeel. Overall, this is not a bad summer beer. I think I would have this again depending upon the circumstances.

Look - This is a dark gold colored beer with a thin head formed.
Smell - I get a smell of orange.
Taste - A soft almost bread like taste to it.
Feeling - If the goal is to sit back and down some beers just trying to chill then this is your beer. But if you want a kick then grab a pack and enjoy.
Overall - It's a fairly light beer and what else can you expect?

Had this around for a while. Poured into a tulip glass from a bottle. Good Amber color, smell = beer, taste had a sweetness to it. Wouldn't mind having this at a summer BBQ. Okay mouthfeel. Overall decent summer beer. I'd have it again.
