Tasting Notes from the Maine Brewers Festival

Beer columnist Tom Atwell relays some of his tasting notes from this past weekend’s Maine Brewers Festival.

I was surprised by the complexity of the Honey Rye from Kennebec River Brewing Co. in The Forks. When I have had their beers, both at their pub while on fishing trips and in bottles, they have been good middle-of-the-road brews. But the Honey Rye had a wonderful sweetness upfront from the honey and an absolutely dry finish. I could see this as a superb beer for warm days.
