Spring Ale (2012) (ABV=5.7%)

Available in February-April

Back East Spring Ale is brewed in the tradition of northern European Beire de Mars (or “March” beer).  It is brewed with light colored aromatic malts, a touch of wheat, three types of hops, and a judicious addition of dried lemon peel.  With its notes of tropical and citrus fruits, this spring seasonal is perfect for enjoyment during the lengthening days of Spring.

Summer Ale (ABV=4.9%)

Available in April-August

Back East Summer Ale is light in color, cloudy, and delicate in body but packed with hoppy goodness  Brewed with Citra, Galaxy, and Simcoe hops, it is assertively hopped but not overly bitter, yet bursts with fruity, spicy, and herbal hop overtones.

Spring Ale (2013) (ABV=5.5%)

Available in February-April

Back East Spring Ale is an Irish-style Red Ale.  Brewed with Irish malt and UK hops, this traditional Red Ale is a deep reddish color with a medium body.  This very drinkable ale has an upfront sweetness and roasted dry mouthfeel, with just a moderate amount of bitterness to balance out the malt body
