American Pale Ale (APA) |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

A - Great looking pale ale. Yellow gold body with a towering, foamy white head. Great retention and lace.

S - Bright nose. Pine, orange, rosemary, and fresh green cilantro.

T - Woody pine, light rosemary, tart tangerine. Touch of honey and plant stems on the finish.

M - Refreshingly light on the palate.

O - A great session ale. Perfect for the summer.

First Maine Beer Co. And not disappointed. Aroma hits you long before you bring the glass to your nose. Pineapple, citrus and lemongrass, guessing some citra or simcoe at play here.

Resiny taste and great lacing, the malt and body here is very nice, and belies its relatively light color, biscuity and a bit chewy. Perfect carbonation level, coats the palate, hype be damned, this backs it up, better than expected. I'm going to shut up and enjoy the rest.

even better than lunch, this is one of the best beers made in maine as far as I am concerned. it pours a hazy straw color with an orange glow. the head isn't much, white and airy, but not lasting real long. the nose is like fresh pineapple juice, not bitter at all, real tropical and real fresh, reminds me of hill farmstead or lawsons stuff, east coast and hoppy, but more than high alcohol oily dankness, its insane how good this is. a veritable fruit punch of hop flavors, lemon and grapefruit too. I love the intensity of it, while staying not too bitter. jazzy carbonation, clean finish and feel, as good as any American pale on the market I think. the lightness is what impresses me most. I could drink this forever, and my 10 ounce pour just isn't enough! all beers on at maine beer company were tasty, great examples of their respective styles, but this to me was the pick of the litter. already looking forward to my next one, whenever I may be so lucky. a true gem.

A very hoppy nose and great beer. It was a very welcomed surprise as we do not get many Maine beers down this way! It held up well to other beers as well as I had just come from an IPA tasting. This beer vanquished the ones I had just tried and set up shop on my palate!
