Notes / Commercial Description:

MO is probably Maine Beer Company's most underrated beer. It is far easier to obtain than Dinner or Lunch, but it has a lot to offer in terms of flavor and mouthfeel. It has a similar flavor profile to Dinner, but it is far lighter and slightly more carbonated.

I have enjoyed MO on tap and in bottles; in fact it is one of my regular purchases at the local liquor store. It is a hop-forward Ale with excellent carbonation that goes down all-too-easily on a nice summer day.

It is mostly golden in color and pours with a thin lacey head with a mild dank, hoppy flavor. As with most Maine Beer Co. beers, the fresher the better, so be mindful of the stamped-on production date. After 90 days the quality does suffer, and that would certainly be a waste of an extremely well crafted ale. Cheers!
