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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle dated 02/23/12, about 2.5 weeks old.

A: A hazy golden-orange pour with a huge effervescent white head atop it. Retention is top notch, it takes forever to fade away. Lacing up and down the glass.

S: Wonderful citrus aroma. Lots of grapefruit and orange. Some mild tropical fruit. Sweet.

T: Lots of sweet orange and a little bitter grapefruit mixed in. A hint of bready malt.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and a touch drying in the aftertaste.

O: I don't know how Maine Beer keeps doing it, but they do. This is a borderline IPA but focused better on balance and drinkability. Flavors compliment each other wonderfully and makes this another great addition to their lineup. This one falls somewhere between Lunch and Peeper and fits in perfectly.

Bottle dated 6/26/12 served in a tulip glass on 7/10/12, so about 2 weeks old. Hell yeah!

Pour: Very hazy golden orange with three fingers of very fluffy white head that would linger if not for drinking it. Fantastic lacing.

Smell: Orange juice and grapefruit with some pine mixed in.

Taste: Citrus juiciness with some more pine than the nose hinted. Light caramelly backbone that isn't the showstealer, but is more substantial than in Peeper.

Mouthfeel: Very refreshing and light. Bitterness subsides quickly after each sip.

Overall: Really great APA and MBC continues to impress me. Seek out again for sure.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Sampled 7/21/12. Bottled 6/26/12.

A: Dark copper amber color, pretty hazy. Nice, dense two finger fluffy head retains great and leaves patchy lacing.

S: Grapefruit and citrus, oranges and a big tropical fruit punch. Smells fresh and and bit floral and grassy. Good sweet malt aroma mixed in, smells awesome.

T: Tropical fruits, grapefruit and fruit juice, some nice pine and slightly floral quality. There's a light toasty malt sweetness which makes for a pretty well balanced pale.

M: Medium to full body, carbonation is medium and the hops are a bit oily and linger a bit.

O: Excellent pale ale here from MBC. Its very refreshing and balanced and just a really delicious and quality made brew much like the other offerings from these guys. Keep up the good work MBC. The big thing though, very low bitterness with all the hop flavor.

Glad I was able to pick a bottle of the MO up. One of the final beers from Maine Beer Company I have to try. I'm a big fan.

A: Pale honey, amber body. Medium-Small head and a good amount of lacing along the glass.

S: A sweet smelling ale with notes of citrus and tropical fruit. Great hop smell- earthy, floral and full of citrus. Very inviting, let's get down to business.

T: Very hoppy APA and just great. Bitter upfront and with that, I'm getting a lot of what I got in the smell, tropical and citrus fruit. Followed by a nice, sweet biscuity flavor. Well balanced despite it's hoppyness. It really could pass as an IPA. As it warms, the flavors become more pronounced. Nicely done.

M: Fairly light and crisp, drinkable. Carbonation is light, makes for a refreshing APA. Finishes with that bitter-sweet citrus and leaves a very nice after taste in the mouth.

O: Another job well done by Maine Beer Company. Some might find the $8 expensive for the bottle, but I find it well worth it. I think it's somewhat similar to the Peeper Ale and would like to do a tasting side by side to find those subtle differences. Pick this up if you can.

Mo is a great pale ale. Yet again another great beer from the Maine Beer Company. I am surprised this Beer and others from this brewery are not rated higher. It had a great pale ale taste. Smooth and Hopi is a great combination. I would highly recommend this beer.

Pours into a standard pint a dull medium golden with a large blooming white head,maybe a little over carbonation issue.Juicy grapefruit in the nose with a little grassiness as well,not much malt profile just juicy hops.Maybe the best hop profile of any "standard" pale I have had flavor-wise,fresh grapefruit and grassy flavors with a dryer base making for just hoppy goodness.A tad sharp in the mouth but man this is just a hopped up flavor punch of an APA.Wow.

Color is pale gold, and a little tangerine orange. Head is bright white and foamy. Nice splotchy lace and good head retention. Aroma is loaded with juicy grapefruit. Some pine, flowers, leaves, and generally tropical. Like peeper, a mouthwatering aroma, but bigger. Taste is fruity, tropical, zesty, grapefruity, piney, and a weeee bit herbal. Mmmm. Texture is gritty-like/resiny mixed in slickness. Really good stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

We pop a bottle, pouring a brew of hazy goldenrod into our Great Lakes pints. It holds a three finger tall head of creamy, soapy eggshell colored bubbles, showing nice retention into ringed and patterned lacing down the glasses. No haze or sediment is noted, and carbonation appears to be intermittent but active. The aroma is wildly fresh, giving notes of grapefruity and herbal hops, tangerine juiciness, lemon rind zest, white sugar sweetness, tinny metallics, pale malts and chlorine-washed barley, sea foam, sandy dryness, passion and star fruitiness, and manila paper muskiness. Our first impression is that the flavoring remains true to style, respecting the boundaries of the hop profile, in that it doesn’t encroach on the obviously pale maltiness of the base. As we sip, the taste begins with metallic pale and amber maltiness, spicy ale yeastiness, board chalk, fresh squeezed lemon and grapefruit juice, lactic acidity, light black pepper spiciness, tin, dried herbals, laundry detergent chemicals, and fresh picked cotton blend. The middle peaks with bitter arugula greens, celery and spinach vegetals, dried sage and thyme spiciness, lemon and tangerine juiciness, coven phenols, clayed minerals, and citric, floral, and softly soapy hoppiness. The end comes with dried pencil graphite, strawed plastics, eggplant vegetals, spicy grapefruit and tangerine rind, fresh squeezed orange juiciness, lemon-lime zest, balmy herbalness, parsnip rootiness, potato starches, and green mustard weed spiciness. The aftertaste breathes of stinging citric and grassy oiliness and rind of hops, pencil woodiness, gravel dustiness, clean ceramic, fumy wood stain and plastic phenol bite, dried straw, leafy green vegetal leafiness, iced water, and sticky orange flesh and seed. The body is lightly medium, and the carbonation is medium, but frothy. Each sip affords nice slurp, smack, cream, froth, pop, glug, foam, and pull, working its way easily around the mouth. It is initially coating, but drags into a clean and tannic puck of hoppy astringency. The abv is appropriate, and the beer disappears quickly.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was its aroma, and following flavor. The nose, right from the start, gave freshness and cleanliness that is hard to come by. Although the taste rushes in rather abruptly, it too gave a spice and ease of sip that followed rather well. This is the last of the Maine Beer Company “heavy hitters” for us to sample, and it was certainly no disappointment. Compared to Lunch and Zoe, however, we did find this guy to sip back a bit easier, and flow a touch lighter. While this can be attributable to stylistic differences, it detracts nothing from the overall sentiment of flavor and forward punch this beer has to offer. This is a fantastic beer, and one of their best, most consistently drinkable to date.

Served on tap at Miller's Pub. Pours a orangeish gold with slight haze. White head forms and retains a collar. Some lacing present. The nose is heavenly, loads of tropical notes, mango flesh, peach, and pineapple. This is backed by some pine and resin as well as mild malty notes. The taste is hop forward with moderate bitterness and an emphasis on tropical fruits. There is not much body or malt backbone, which works to make this brew light, refreshing, and full of flavor! High carbonation. Overall, a very well crafted pale with an excellent hop profile. Check it out!!

Thanks to KalH for this bottle. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into a TBBC pint glass.

A: Bright gold in color with mild haze, and a huge fluffy white head atop significant visible carbonation.

S: Resinous pine, citrus pith, grassy, a bit of spice hops, and a base of cracker malt.

T: Resin, grass, bitter citrus with some tropical fruits and melon. A more sizeable cracker malt presence then expected. Moderate bitterness into the hang.

M: Light bubbly body, just a bit of alcohol warmth.

O: Very, very well done. Yet another offering from MBC that impresses me.

The beer is golden to yellow with a mild haze and a huge, white, frothy head. The aroma brings some zesty citrus, floral notes, pine, a light sweetness. Hop forward and refreshing. Light in body with moderate carbonation. Big floral and citrus notes. Oranges and lemons with a touch of bitter pine, finishing dry. A wonderful pale ale. My only complaint is that it's $6.99 per 500 mL bottle, when a beer of this ilk should be $9-12 per sixer. For that reason alone, I won't be revisiting this one, as tasty as it is.

A: Hazy orange, strawish color. Nice head that retains its boldness throughout the entire beer. A good reinforcement of carbonation is clearly visible, keeping the head up.

S: Passionfruit, citrus, pine and definitely a bit of rye.

T: Taste follows the aroma. A bit more pine and earthiness comes in towards the end than the aroma would suggest, and finishes off with a nice rye backbone.

M: Well-carbonated, medium-bodied, and a good dry, bitter finish.

O: Solid APA that doesn't blow me away but leaves you wanting more with every sip. Another well done beer by this brewery, which is starting to grow on me despite the prices.

16.9 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled on Sept 24, 2013.

A: Pours a hazy golden with a full white head. Large bubbles form in the foam and slowly break it down. Big carbonation bubbles are seen shooting to the surface. Leaves some nice lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Very nice hop aroma on this one, really comes through with noticeable citrus qualities. Pale malts back it up but the focus is on the hops.

T: Flavor is great, has the illusion of balance with low bitterness but is very hop forward and flavorful. Earthy tones to it with the blend of malts and hops. Just comes across as an outstanding hoppy beer.

M: Creamy mouthfeel that has a crisp dose of carbonation. Finish is dry and doesn't have much lingering stickiness. Real easy drinking.

Overall this really shows what a pale ale can taste like. Certainly doesn't have the IBU's of an IPA but the hop flavor shines. A must try by anyone even those who normally shy away from hoppier beers.

Bottled 10/22/13.

A - Huge fluffy white head that settles to a thin layer of foam and a few big streaks of lace.

S - Big dose of grapefruit and tangerine hops but they also seem very subtle at times. Some grainy, cracker like malt in the background. Some pine as it warms.

T - Grapefruit zest, herbal and citrus hops. Hop forward. Tangerine notes on the finish. This beer is somewhat unique in that it seems full of big, over the top hop flavors but is somewhat subtle and subdued at the same time.

M - Creamy with crisp carbonation and a light lingering bitterness.

D - A little hard to describe. Like an elegant, refined pale ale. All the hop flavor without over the top bitterness or sweetness. Excellent.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass and shared with a friend.

Pours a slightly hazey golden color with a couple fingers of thick sudzy head and leaves breat lacing as it falls. MO has a great hop blast of a nose, with lots of citrus (grapefruit) and other tropical fruit, pine resin and some floral notes. The taste follows suite and this APA drinks almost like an IPA with big juicy fruit, pine and spicy hop notes but with a nice bready malt backbone with a clean, dry finish. The body is full but light on the palate and there is plenty of carbonation making MO light and refreshing. Really well done!

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Thanks Toasterchef!!

What a perfectly forming uniform off white head on the pour, large, but settles nicely in due time, the bubbles are practicaly on forming all the same perfect size. A gorgeous nearly clear but a little hazy bronze and brass gold. Shining and shimmering.

What a great soft hop smell on this with a cushy malt. Fruit basket citrus, and great crispy bready toast. Malt dry character takes over, boy this feels like something good is coming.

The palate gets hit and I notice a bit of wetness. Even for a pale ale this is still I find a bit watery, but then the flavors hit so perfectly. An easy toasty whole wheat bread, crisp hop tasting and faint citrus, then eventually some apricot. Afterfinish on this is LOOOOooong, but not like an IPA but just a good solid pale ale. Previous sips jam the nose citrus angle slowly.

I am just blown away by how good this brewery makes beer. Just another solid offering regardless of mouthfeel.

Pours a bright glowing orange amber with light haze, prickly cap of white bubbles, decent lacing. Scent is huge whiffs of juicy tropical and citrus fruits such as mango, tangerine, pineapple, kiwi, lightly floral with sweet light malts. Taste follows suit bith big tropical and citrus notes, lightly sweet malts with faint residual sugar, lightly bitter. Only knock was the active and prickly carbonation, could be toned down a notch,medium bodied. Fantastic fruit notes that few pales or IPAs produce, an all around winner.

On tap at the original Pony Bar.

Golden/amber pour yields plenty of head and the most lace I've ever seen from an APA. Absolutely gorgeous!

Smells of fresh, tasty hops with plenty of citrus and malt in support. Taste follows suit with impeccable balance. MO is strongly hoppy while not carrying an abundance of bitterness. Fresh, mildly fruity, and surprisingly malty for a pale ale.

Not quite as good as Zombie Dust, but remarkably close. Very impressive!

16.9oz bottle with a bottled date of 081212. Pours a murky, cloudy orange color with an inch of fluffy white head. Some lacing. Fantastic whiff of sweet orange, grapefruit, and tropical fruits. The flavor is just as the aroma indicated. Sweet grapefruit and orange hop flavor followed by tropical fruits, mango and pineapple most nnotably. Nice bitterness. Slightly floral finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall, amazing Pale Ale. I hope to get my hands on more.

500 mL poured in to a pint glass

A: This beer pours with a hazy golden body, and a one finger of sudsy white head. Head recedes quickly leaving spider webbed lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is mango and pineapple fruitiness, mingled with a burst of piney, earthy hops, and a hint of biscuit.

T: Taste is big piney, earthy notes punctuate the forefront of this beer. These big pine notes hang around for a while, mingling in to a nice light caramel malt sweetness in the middle. Finish is a massive dose of grapefruit mingled with lighter mango and tangerine flavoring.

M: Medium body, medium to higher carbonation, dry finish with a prickling of carbonation at the end.

O: Goes does easy, very tasty, not too filling, mild kick, nice representation of style. Perhaps a bit hoppier than typical APA's, though works really well for this beer.

Bottle poured into a nonic pint. Bottled 1/3/13, reviewed 2/3/13

A - Pours a crystal clear pale gold with three finger fluffy head, clouds up quite a bit when/if you pour the yeast in. Slighty resembles a hefeweizen, leaves plenty of lacing.

S - Hops jump out quite a bit on this one. Citrus, grassy, herbal, earthy, and dank hops. Maybe a slight underlying hint of malt.

T - Not as hoppy as the nose but still a strong presence. Also a fairly strong malt, grainy sweetness. As far as hop flavor, its similar to the profile in the nose with maybe the grassy and herbal dominating. Very balanced flavor which differs greatly from the aroma. It finishes with medium to mild bitterness.

M - Light body, very easy to drink especially considering its on the high end of strength for a pale ale. Definitely smooth, light to medium carbonation.

O - Overall a 6% pale ale, I guess some would consider it an IPA. The balance, light body, and drinkablility definitely say pale ale and a damn good one. One of the best I've had.

Very cool that this beer was named for twin babies Madeline and Oliver, as I just brewed a homebrew to celebrate my own grandson's birth...

Pour yields a giant white head of tight bubbles on a clear, bright golden beer. Head retention is super, with very good lacing. My last pour is cloudy from the yeast sediment.

Very pleasing aromas are of pepper, plus citrus hop notes such as grapefruits and pine trees.

Taste is primarily about the citrus hop character; it's bitter but not over the top. Nicely balanced.

The feel features prickly carbonation and is medium bodied. Finished dry and bitter from the hops, but still balanced.

Overall, an excellent rendition of a pale ale

Thanks to DrewShal9 for this one!

500ml bottle, dated 5/21/13, enjoyed on 7/1/13

The beer pours a nice, clean, copper color, slight chill haze with a few bubbles rising to the top of the glass. A finger or two or white, soapy head rises up and has great retention and leaves a lovely network of webbed lace behind. The aroma is of bright citrus, wildflower, light pine and sweet pale malt, really balanced, really well integrated. Lots of citrus, grapefruit and tangerine, on the tongue with great earthy pine and wildflower qualities with some crisp spiciness before a smooth, sweet malt profile takes over the finish. The body is crisp and bubbly, with higher than average carbonation that coats the mouth well and has a nice creamy finish that is lightly dry.

Verdict: A damn fine APA from Maine Beer Company, bright, vibrant with a great earthy balance. It's clean, simple and refreshing, yet easily satisfies any hop craving.

Ive seen bottles of this around, but have forgotten about the name and only picked it up at a local craft dispensary after looking it up on my smartphone and seeing the rave reviews. I must say, as is mostly the case, I agree with my beer buddies here. This is a great beer. I've been on the lookout lately for lower abv beers witb full flavors that satisfy the taste buds, and I must say this one definitely fits the bill.
A: Beautiful golden tone with almost no head. Could be the pours. Everything I've been getting today has been coming with virtually no head. Better for me...more beer, but cant truly evaluate the brews characteristics. Still no complaints.
T: Slightly bitter, hoppy and all that good stuff. Tastes a lot like a refined ipa rather than a pale ale. I also detect some qualities that I cant quite put my finger on that are usually common in DIPAs. And at only 6% and easily sessionable, I'm in heaven. Regardless of ABV, this is a gem. Anything above 93 rating on BA usually is. Do try it if you have a chance. As I'm finishing this glass a waitress brought another beer along the same style to sample. I can already tell this is going to be a bumpy ride.
