Penobscot Blue Ribbon 4.0: American Amber Ale
The winning recipe for the fourth (almost) annual Maine Homebrewers Competition came to us from Jim Rausch, a veteran homebrewer who beat out several excellent submissions from some local brewers of note, including a few past champions! His amber ale, which he calls "Waldo Lake Amber," is a smooth and malty ale with a distinctly American twist. The American yeast and late hop additions tie this brew together with a nice, crisp finish. A great beer for any time of year!
