On tap at the Barley House restaurant in North Hampton, New Hampshire on June 16, 2017. So this beer is no longer retired.

Medium amber color with an off-white head that lingers.

The aroma begins with a sweet caramel malt character but then I pick up these herbal qualities such as ginger, rosemary, and sage.

Medium body.

The taste also brings out he same intriguing herbal flavor with a mild to moderate bitterness at the end.

Available on draft the the Barley House in Concord as of 10/25/14.

Much more than I expected from a "house" beer. Nice golden color with light hints of malt and citrus on the nose. Very smooth with excellent balance. Overall a really nice effort.

Has this at the Barley house.

It came cloudy amber with a nice head. As I drank the beer laced well forming curtains on the side of the glass

The aroma is nice. Malt backing with a flowery citrus hop aroma that last in the nose very nice

The taste is nice, a easy drink and the taste is very mellow It starts like the aroma with a malt back. The hops become prominant with a flowery citrus finish very nice.

I had this brew on 7/13/10 at The Barley House in Concord, NH This pale ale was brewed by Harpoon for the 10th year.

A golden brew, white foamy head, grand amount of carbonation and very healthy look.

Pale, Crispy malt, slighlty sweet in the most gentle way with a dashing f pine, spice and earthiness in the hops, the yeast has a wonderful dry, wheat effect.

The flavor here is all about balance. The hops are nice, not wicked complex but yummy! Dry wheat with white pepper, dry earthiness and genttle sweet wild berries but mostly hearty and earthy, crispy, super-clean malty balance. WOW.

I could drink this one all day!! Bring on the dog dazzzze!
