Beer Review: Allagash White Ale


Beer: Allagash White

Rating: ** (6.1 of 10)

Comments: This is cloudy, bright yellow beer with spicy, citrus aromas & flavors.  It’s a nice balance although my glass tasted somewhat weak and flat compared to previous tries of this beer.  Perhaps a bad keg or a bad pour?  At any rate, a decent refreshing beer.

Comments: A reddish-brown beer with a thick head, it offers a dark-roasted aroma and a good balance of sweet & bitter flavors.  It kind of seemed like a wheat beer evolving into a porter.  It’s an interesting beer and a nice change of pace.

Comments: Starting with an orangish hue this beer has a juicy motif that screams citrus in aroma and flavor.  It also leaves a slight taste of wheat on the lips. It has a lot of hops so it’s very bitter but not to the detriment of this beer.

Comments: Another beer sampled on our Martha’s Vineyard weekend.  The beer had the blackness of its name and style, but flavor-wise it was lacking the stout punch.  Other than some chocolaty overtones I found it tasted weak and watery.  I was disappointed by this beer.
