Bar Harbor Brew

There’s a great restaurant in Bar Harbor, Maine, called Jack Russell’s.  Nice bar, nice steaks and wonderful hosts and servers.  On tap they had 3 or 4 varieties of beer, brewed onsite.  Actually, just across the parking lot, at the Maine Coast Brewing Company, a true microbrewery.  Their Pale Ale has a great yeasty bouquet with a mildly stinky floral hop overtone.  The taste is sharp, dry and refreshing.  The finish is dry, particularly at the back of the throat.  The Brown Lager is great as well, with a wonderful malty bouquet, smooth texture and a good overall balance of tastes and ingredients.  Well done.
