Nice Smell, good hop aroma. Hazy Copper color with Good Lacing. Mild Bitterness. Overall a very good American Pale Ale. The lower alcohol content lets you enjoy a few.

Finally trying this New England staple. Picked up in Wells, ME. Good to see the wealth of Moat cans.

A- Tallboy poured to a goblet revealing a medium golden brew with a frothy white, two finger crown. Fair head retention after which a small ring deposits sheets of drizzled lace.

S- Balanced aroma with hops perhaps taking a very slight edge giving off citrus, floral and slight stone fruits. Bready yeast and barley, apple esters, pale crystal malt sweetness, toast, cereal and biscuits.

T- By 2015 standards this would be balanced or even a bit malty. The grains make a platform of cereal malts, biscuit, light crystal sweetness, toast and bready notes. Oranges, tangerine, floral hints, apricot and earthy hops. Hints of pale fruit esters and yeast bread round it out.

MF- Medium overall thickness hitting the palate with a smooth frothy texture. Medium to high zesty bubbles finishing with a solid resinous bitterness.

All around good flavors and balance. Some of the hops get muddled in the wealth of grainy flavors but honestly it drinks very easily and is perfect for a tallboy. Gotta get some for the next White Mountain adventure.
