93pointsMaine Beer Co. Black Barn Program No. 9

This is a rustic pilsner that comes across as rough around the edges, which only contributes to its charm. The grain isn't as polished as some, which gives it a farmhouse feel, while the hops are mostly muted, with the occasional flash of spice, lime and grapefruit pith. Let it warm up a bit and there is a whiff of white peach fuzz. Picture a farm as the sun is beginning its journey downwards towards the horizon. This is the beer for that situation, however this was a one-off beer in a rotating series. John Holl
