Bottle: I last had this when Oland’s brewed it. Then it was on par with Okeefe’s extra old stock. This moosehead version has more ale character than most commercial east coast brews but still is too bland and unpronounced to be considered a premium ale.
Poured a darker gold , small white cap vanished quickly.... weak lacing,...
sweet aroma some grains.
Weak malt backbone, soapy mouthfeel.
Some sweet malts up front with some light apple tones and weak woody hops to balance, mid palate it goes thin and ends with a quick clean tasteless finish....a better commercial ale would be black pearl.

my first experience with this type of ale. i really liked it but on the coast it has a reputation as being an "old man's beer". too bad. those who label it as such are missing out.
