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.

Poured from bottle into two glasses. I really like that the date is displayed prominently.
Head was nice and large (about 2-3 inches). Color is a slightly hazy golden.
Aroma is nice! Plenty of citrus and a little floral.
Taste is excellent. Well balanced. Light citrus and some pine and floral. Ends with just a little green.
Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. A little of the haze might come through.
Overall an excellent beer! Very well rounded. Great pale ale!!

A: Pure gold with a very slight haze. Thick meringue foam, soft and delicate like a french pastry, almost pure white color.

S: Grassy, fruity, and light piney are my initial reaction. The tropical fruit is citrus, maybe orange or tangerine. A very faint toastiness in the background. Very well mannered and balanced. It's drawing me in, got to taste it now.

T: Wow, really nice. First comes the tangerine citrus with light floral notes. Almost no sweetness, except maybe in a way certain breads are slightly sweet. A sharp and crisp beer. It's a mix of light to medium mouthfeel, and no issues with the carbonation.

O: Super pysch-ed this beer has come to Chicago. My best friend has a great trading partner who lives in Maine, so I've had a few Maine Bee Co brews and they have all been SOLID. I love clear date stamping on the bottle and the additional recommendation of number of days to best enough the beer by. Purchased on 11/2, bot said drink within 32-days of 10/22. Everything is correct with this pale ale. Love the flavors of citrus and pine, with the additional notes of spice and/or herbal and/or floral. The 6% abv is perfect and in the right portion with a 17-oz bottle. And it's a clean and refreshing beer to drink. I know this statement might be challenging, but I had a fresh Pliny the Elder a week ago, and I think the brews from Maine BC are on par with the WC powerhouse.
