An American-style ale brewed one barrel at a time. The malt bill is built on American two-row malt and accented by crystal 10, Vienna, and white wheat malts. Magnum hops give the beer a nice clean bittering and Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hop varieties provide a pleasant floral and citrusy hop flavor. A healthy dose of additional Amarillo and Centennial are dry hopped to give this beer an inviting hop aroma. The beer is fermented with a neutral yeast strain and allowed to dry out so it finishes crisp and clean.

Note: Formerly known as Spring Peeper.

Great stuff. Poured slow and still produced a massive head. Very light carbonation and mellow hop character make for a super sessionable brew. The aroma is pretty light on the nose but the minute you take a sip the flavor really blossoms. I’d love to try this on tap.

Sample at taproom. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. getting some solid floral notes on the nose. Nice floral hop notes on the tongue balanced with enough bitterness to keep things interesting. Nice example of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale ale très respectable. Légère, houblons présents et goût d’agrumes. Niveau d’intensité des saveurs à revoir par contre. Faible amertume.

Draught and bottles from debut, most recently on draught at Lonestar, 7/11/15
Next in the "Why the Hell havent I rated this yet??" series, we have a fine beer that I really think helps push the bitterness envelope for American pale ales, yet still remains quite drinkable, crisp and with enough actual hop flavor to still get enjoyment from. I’ve always enjoyed this one, but this most recent draught experience was even better than usual. The beer was sparklingly clear, had a good, citrusy-floral nose with light tangerine, nectarine, lemon and orange and only a bare smattering of light malts in the background. No alcohol and minimal, if any, resin.
The flavor is where this one shines best, I think. Utterly dry, wonderfully attenuated and full of fresh citrus flavors piled atop moderate dextrins that add body and help balance, without adding any unnecessary sweetness. Strong bitterness goes right up to the brink of my tolerance, though I’m sure many will find it tame in comparison to many IPAs. There’s a healthy dose of light pine mixing with grapefruit but it doesn’t really stick to the palate and bog it down. I was able to suck down four of these things at lunch with no problem at all. Very good and put MBC on the map for good reason. There is a moderate amount of astringency from the high attenuation and heavy bitterness, but it’s not too problematic and is really the only detractor I can find with this beer.

Type: 500ml (16.9-oz.) bottle Glass: Hardwood Artisans pint glass From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Price: $6.99 Purchased: July 14, 2015 Consumed: July 17, 2015 Misc.: Born on June 23, 2015 Poured a yellow, golden, pale, hazy color with three fingers of rocky, white head. One really big bubble stream coming up from the bottom of the glass and a few other smaller streams as well. Average-to-above average amount of foamy spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top. (Sight - 4.13) Smelled earthy rye malts up front surprisingly. Also getting sugary caramel, light Citra zest, lemon sweetened iced tea, honey, light floral and raw vegetables. (Smell - 3.88) Taste seemed to be better than the nose, but was a bit underwhelming overall. Got sweetened iced tea, pear, honey, orange zest, orange creamscicle ice cream (orange blossom I guess), floral, nectarine and grassy notes. (Taste - 4.00) Light body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Fruity finish. (Feel - 4.00) This was a good pale ale, but not as good as the Maine MO I had last night. I’d have it again for sure though. (Overall - 3.88) 3.96 89 B+
