Bottle poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden straw with a frothy white head that hangs around and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Floral, grassy, zesty citrus, a little peppery, faint fruity notes, crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

T: Bright, floral, zesty citrus, lemon, a little peppery, grassy, faint nectarine, passion fruit, and berries, crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Refreshing, light crisp pale ale, but I can't say it's worth the price of admission with so many other interesting beers out there.

16.9 fl oz bottle 4/17/18 poured into a pint glass, a semi hazy gold with a two and half finger head that retains for the majority of the drink. A citrusy piney aroma and the taste followed suit, with mild bread/malt notes underneath. The feel was medium, with a medium low amount of carbonation. Overall, a tasty APA that is almost sessionable, but with a little more citrus/hops than a standard APA.

Thrilled to find this in Ohio, :

Pours golden with 3 fingers + pillowy ivory head. Hazes a bit; lovely head retention & lacing

S: Bready, grassy

T: Follows the nose, grainyness as well, some crackery dryness up front. A little lemon, graasyness & white pepper, & even some sage, plus dryness as this warms.

MF: Medium body, delicate/fluffy carbonation, nice balance

Drinks so easy, a very delicate, well crafted APA, but believe I may have a less than prime example

Served on tap into a conical pint glass at Waxy O'Connor's in Lexington, Massachusetts.
A: Pours a hazy golden to amber color with a half inch, white lead with modest retention and so-so lacing.
S: Aromas of peach, grapefruit, mango, and cookie predominate in that order.
T: Peach/nectarine, lemon zestiness, and pine all evident, as are lightly caramelized malts. Light bitterness offsets other flavors leaving a crisp, refreshing finish.
M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: A enjoyable, very drinkable and refreshing American Pale Ale. Wish it were available in my area.

This was the first Maine Beer Company bottle I tried, after friends had highly recommended the brewery. I'm writing this a couple of years later, so I don't remember the details, but I was very disappointed. I should say though, while I've been disappointed by Maine's IPAs and stouts (styles I very much enjoy from others), I've found few American Pale Ales that have done much for me. Therefore, my rating is depressed by my incompatibility with both the style and the brewery.
