Finally, this wonderful beer from Portland has taken the drive down 95 and parked itself on the shelves here at Bauer. A couple of years ago a co-worker brought a bottle back from his vacation to Maine and I was really impressed with this beer when we opened it up. Then, last spring when I spent a weekend in Portland, the Peeper and it’s sister beer, Zoe, was on tap everywhere I went but when I went to seek it out at the local shops they were all sold out. Definitely a good sign. This American Pale Ale is brewed by two brothers in a rather small brewery but there is nothing small about the flavors in this beer. It pours into the glass a nice golden color with a thick white head. You get the nice orange-citrus, hoppy notes on the nose and the taste has a great bitter hop characteristic, balanced out by a sweet malty finish. The carbonation in the Peeper is also spot on, which helps make this beer one of the most refreshing pale ales that I have tasted. This beer is certainly worth a try and more than likely you will be back for more. Check out their website to see what other good things they are doing for our planet. Do what’s right.
