Maine Beer Company is climbing the ranks as one of the better breweries in New England. They have many top notch offerings. MO is one of their Pale Ales.

It pours a very light yellow color with lots of fluffy white head. Very carbonated. Aroma has some citrus, a little pine, and some bready malt. Not overpowering though. Taste is tropical, citrus, and a touch of pine. Just enough malt for great balance. Very smooth with very little bitterness. Very light body making it go down like your favorite summer brew.

MO is a great pale ale. I actually think MO is a better pale ale than Lunch is an IPA. Not that I don't like Lunch, but I don't think it stands up to the best IPA's in New England, but I think MO does compare to the best pale ales. It's just a great beer.

Bright, crisp and clean, this is one of the best pale ales I've had. Not overly hopped like a lot of pale ales nowadays, this beer is perfectly balanced and is ridiculously easy to drink. I want more of this one.

I recently got to try this. I was on a big Maine Beer Company kick and this was BY FAR my favorite of the 5-6 beers that I bought. It was very tasty and worth every penny. I will buy it whenever I see it on the shelf.
