Atlantic Bar Harbor Real Ale
Atlantic Brewing Co.
Bar Harbor & Portland, ME

I expected this to be a bit lighter in color but as is it's a smoky brown with very subtle hints of malt and a sharp but not overly bitter hop flavoring. Dry as gritty sand but a pleasant enough taste until you touch the dregs and then it gives off a sweeter more caramelly brown sugar smokiness. I'm not exactly thrilled with this brew and put next to their Coal Porter and B. H. Blueberry Ale this ranks a distant third. I'm not opposed to drinking it but I won't go out of my way to find it again.
