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.

F - medium body and carbonation. Smooth

O - an excellent pale ale. Well done!

On tap at the Pour Taproom (SC).
Pours with a lightly hazy amber body and a generous white head that has very good retention.
Aroma: sweet and odd (but not in a bad way), with fruity and berry notes.
Flavor: tropical fruit and floral notes from the hops; faint bready malts. Surprisingly sweet for style: in fact, more sweet than bitter.
Mouthfeel: near medium body with soft, medium carbonation.
Overall: refined and mild for style, this has a distinctive but very appealing aroma and flavor.

L - Golden orange haze and pours a generous head
S - Very clean head, with pine, a candy sweetness, grapefruit and orange
T - Grapefruit and pine along with juicy citrus
F - Bursting with flavor but not overpowering.

Once again the masters of the simplicity taste is kicking butt again!

A very solid Pale Ale from Maine Brewing. I love Maines beers but they are a lot harder to get ahold of and considerably more expensive than Trillium

Poured from 16.9oz bottle to tulip glass.

L: Golden orange, a little hazy but not opaque
S: Citrusy, grapefruit, a little piney, very clean smelling, not dank to me at all
T: More pine on the taste than the smell, some grapefruit coming through. Not too bitter. Very "clean" tasting, similar to the smell.
M: medium-light, crisp, like a session ipa
O: Outstanding beer, probably my 3rd favorite from my favorite brewery, Maine Beer Co. behind Another One and Lunch (note I have not been able to try Dinner yet). Not as complex as those other two, but lighter and cleaner. I would rank MO above Peeper for Maine Beer Co. pale ales

Poured from the bottle. Tons of pillowy head. Delightfully mellow but enough interesting hop flavor.
