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.

05/12/15 bottle
Light amber, basically exactly the colour of apple juice. Maybe a finger of head to start, but settles and consolidates to the center with soapy bubbles, but a disperse creep of white remains. Decent lacing.

Nose is fresh fruit and citrus. Mango and tangerine primarily. Juicy.

Flavour is muted themes carried from the nose. Some tangerine, much more cereal grains than I smelled. Much less juicy. Maybe some blunt pine, citrus and some biscuity malts.
Finish is an earthy pine bitter.

Decent medium-small body unoffensive carbonation and a clean dry finish. A good APA, though I had hyped it up in my mind too much.

Pour is golden amber with a tight white head. Nose has hints of grain with strong hops and a bit sweet. A ton of citrus, orange peel, and light resin. Taste has more grain than the nose, clean. Still a bit sweet, lots of citrus, hints of pepper and some earthy notes, with a finish of resin and light bitterness through the finish. Fairly dry, a hint syrupy on the feel, well carbonated. Decent stuff.

Hands down my new favorite pale ale. Taste of citrus and floral hops with a great mango motif. Very dry finish. Superb!

I had big hopes for this beer but it's honestly pretty average. A slight sweet, cereal malt flavor. Dry, bitter hops. But I wasn't pleased with the balance, a touch sweeter than I'd like. It's not too malty, just too sweet.

I like this better than Lunch. Citrus and mild piney resin. Very drinkable.
