Maine Beer Co.: Mo pale ale

type: Pale ale
origin: Maine
ABV: 4%
NSP: 4.29

Trader Joe's doesn't usually carry this, but they accidentally got a case in a recent shipment and put it on the shelves. It's pretty unfortunate that this can't be more of a standard, because it has a really nice citrusy piney type nose on the pour, and the body isn't too overwhelmingly malty. Where other beers might bury the hop flavors and fragrances under a malt mountain, these guys kept the hops up top where you can get a good strong whif of them. Compliments homemade pizza nicely.

Keep on keepin' it real MBC.
