BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Maine Beer Company
Maine, United States
mainebeercompany.com

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.

Although the packaging might not be the most eye-catching or engaging, but within is a great beer. A light gold color with a thin head yet the smell was fantastic with hop and citrus notes in the nose. The taste was even better with well defined notes of hop through out with great flavors of lemon peel, banana, and I tasted notes of elderberry although those I was with said they didn't agree. One of my favorite kinds of beer, simple yet excellently crafted. It was a little thin for me but I thought this beer was great and would definitely recommend.
