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: MO pours a nice bright tangerine color, with some chill haze, but pretty clear. 2 fingers of creamy, fluffy head that leaves a gorgeous thick lacing on the glass all the way down.
S: Strong hop aroma. I pick up grassyness, some pine, and light herbal qualities with some citrus in there too, specifically orange peel.
T: Follows the nose exactly. Hop forward for sure, with a grassy and herbal quality to it. There are some citrus and pine notes too. Great crackery and biscuity backbone to this beer from the malt.
MF: DRINKABLE! Smooth and light in the mouth, with a crisp feel and dry finish that brings me right back to the glass for another gulp. So easy to drink and so enjoyable on my taste buds.
O: Amazing APA from MBC. While Peeper is a great beer, this one is just so much better in my opinion. I wish I could get these beers in TN.

A- Pours a deep orange in color and very hazy in the glass. A big head forms and retains for days. The head is thick and frothy and dense, sticking around almost literally forever. The lacing is also tremendous on this beer.

S- Slightly floral and hoppy, but not aggressively hoppy or bitter on the nose. Just a touch of bright citrus flavor is in the scent as well. Nothing super complex or aggressive here, just about your standard APA.

T- Starts with a rather mild hops bitterness that is the focus of the beer, but not the only part of the flavor. An underlying malt sweetness sits right under the slight hop bitterness throughout the drink, and provides the base for the mild hops. The hops turn more toward a spiciness than a bitterness midway through the drink and combine with the malt base to give an overall mild pale ale.

M- Light and springy on the tongue with a good amount of carbonation, this beer is a moderately smooth pale ale. Slick across the tongue with just a touch of lingering hops bitterness.

Overall, this beer is a flagship pale ale. Nothing too aggressive in the way of hops, but good balance flavor overall.
