BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Just after opening our brewery, working long nights, weekends, and still maintaining our day jobs, my brother Daniel (the brewer) had twins. Cheers to his courage and dedication to making better beer.

Clear orange beer with a fluffy white head. Smells of oranges and flowers. Lighter body with citrus and bitterness. Light sweetness ends with orange pith. This is a really great beer.

A: Pours golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles to a thin layer and leaves some very nice lacing.

S: Zesty citrus, resinous pine, a little tropical fruit, biscuity malt, a touch of sweetness.

T: Zesty citrus, lemon, grapefruit, a little tropical fruit, passion fruit, some spicy pine, biscuity malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Really nice bright refreshing pale ale. Pretty happy a keg made it all the way out to CA. Hopefully there's more to come.

Look: It pours golden and clear with a white head that has moderately good head retention.

Smell: It has an initial sweet fruit aroma of passion fruit. There are low levels of pine and citrus. There is a low level of bread in the background.

Taste: The flavors are pleasant, but tend towards being a bit more subtle in presentation. There is a bit of an orange flavor with passion fruit and low levels of pine. The pine makes a greater impact as the flavor lingers. There is a bready grainy element in the background.

Feel: It has a moderate body with a smooth and very pleasant finish that is semi dry.

Overall, this is a wonderful beer without the harshness that many in the same class has. Everything works very well together.
