Beer #29 is Thunder Hole Ale by Bar Harbor Brewing Company from the great state of Maine. Thunder Hole Ale is an English Brown Ale with an ABV of 4.8%. I’m not a big fan of Brown Ales but I am a fan of Bar Harbor and the surrounding area. Thunder Hole in Acadia National Park, depicted on the label, is a very cool place to visit.
Into the pint glass it went with a very nice dark reddish brown color. There was quite the tan head on this one. Lacing was excellent as it clung to the glass for the whole 22 ounces of this beer. The nose was filled by sweet roasted malts, some coffee and a bit of smokiness. Malt, malt and more malt in the taste finishing off with a bit of coffee. Mouthfeel was really nice, very smooth with a medium body and some nice bubbles on the tongue. This brew is a very easy one to drink. It would make a nice session beer. Although I didn’t want another after this bomber.
Thunder Hole was an OK beer but kind of forgettable for me. The real Thunder Hole in Acadia is quite the opposite.
