    Well... I sure pinned this style down in a single guess. Pretty spot on as far as amber lagers go. Bright orange colour with a full malty nose. Touch of corn. Sweet and smooth mouthfel with really nice fruity characteristic. Pretty easy session beer I picked up in Newark a couple months ago. Forgot I still had it!

    Poured a darker golden color with a huge head. ARoma was a sweet caramel and earthyness to it. Flavor was very earthy some citrus in there grapefruit little teabag flavor. Not bad

    For a Vienna/Amber Lager it's quite "funky"lots of foam and lacing,quite malty and hoppy not well balance at all...Cherry flavor at the beginning then disappear for some malt and hopps...I don't reccomend this beer much of everything except a Vienna/Amber Lager.

    A rather malty aroma and taste to match. This poured a rather nice amber color with some fine lacing around the edges. The taste was fair enough but with an odd bite upfront. There was a hint of nuts and fruit with a slighly bitter aftertaste. Overall not too bad but then again nothing overly special.

    My first of probably quite a few NE beers, during my three-week business trip to Bath ME.

    After flying into Portland yesterday afternoon, I did my ussual routine, and headed to Downeast Beverage Co., to stock up my hotel fridge. While there, I spied this never-before-seen beer in six-packs. The clerk, who was quite helpful and cool to talk beer with, wasn't so keen on this one, and talked me out of it.

    But after getting off work early today, I stopped by my preferred Bath ME beer store, Brackett's Market, where again I saw sixers of this beer -- this time on sale for a more-than-fair price. I figured "what the hell", and picked up a full sixer of this. And you know what? I'm glad I ended up going againt the Downeast Beverage Co clerk's advice -- this is a nice little beer.

    While I at first thought of this as being more-or-less a Shipyard Export Ale clone, it's actually much more appealing than that extremely ubiquitous beer. An interesting bite in the front, that quickly gives way to a more mellow maltiness, and a fairly clean finish.

    Quite sessionable -- I found myself at the bottom of my first bottle of this before even getting around to firing up my browser and hitting beerpal.com... ;^)

    Two bottles down, and I'm glad to have another four waiting for me in the mini-fridge. Quite a nice little drop of beer, from a place I had never heard of until last night. Recommended.
