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.

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Very easy drinking pale ale...lots of aromatics, moderate body. Mostly aroma for the hops, not a lot of bite in the body, but still very very good.

Hazy gold color and citrusy nose is followed by citrus flavors that may include orange and meyer lemon along with some malt. A very well-balanced, enjoyable and easy-drinking beer.

Hazy light amber, thin head. Touch of brett on the nose, sweet and slightly biscuity malts, dry, herbal earthy hops, malts on the palate are mostly sweet.. Good balanced character.

dinkle50 (1531) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2017
Slightly cloudy orange pour with a single finger head. Aroma has some hints of dankness and some grapefruit. The aroma is a bit light for my liking though. Finishes with lots of citrus and grain. Lace present, medium body.

WTF? I just don’t get the love affair with Maine beer company. This is a solid good beer and I have never had a bad beer from them but 100??? I am so tempted to give it a 0.5 out of spite. But, I will rate it appropriately.

Ernest (7793) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2017
Bottle (Jun 06, 2017 bottling). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, orange, apricot, melon). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Another sour-ish beer from MBC that really shouldn’t be sour. Not infected sour, just maybe low pH water? Or they added fruit juice? Or maybe they’re Hill Farmstead fans? Pleasant aroma but a bit docile/shy. No onion stink or other off notes at least. Wish it wasn’t sour, else it would be a decent quaffer.

chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2017
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 aroma and flavor.

4.3
gripweed57 (2805) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2017
500 ml bottle. Hazy medium gold color. Large rocky white head. Nice citrus hop nose hints at pine. Soft fruity, crackery malt flavor. Notes of peach, hay, pineapple, lemon and pine. Complex flavors, yet a soft silky mouthfeel. Wonderful flavor and balance. Mildly bitter, dry finish is outstanding. A truly great American Pale Ale.

Another well made Maine that just doesn’t do the finer things to jump it up past 4 territory for me. Well balanced, smooth body moderate to full hopping regime.
