“This full flavoured beer is well-rounded, lemonier than Mr Snicket’s, so piney you could varnish it and crisper than pre-dawn mountain air. Basically, it will go down easier than a diving submarine with the hatch still open.”
Appearance: Bold amber with full transparency. It only manages a short head but it still works a reasonable lace down the glass.
Aroma: Love how crisp and clean it is. Bursting with refreshing pine needle, lemon and grapefruit but then perfectly balanced by the tempered malt sweetness. Some evergreen components here too – grassy and herbal hops alongside a delicate hint of tropical and stonefruit. Absolutely bang on.
Flavour: It’s all about the hops. It kicks off with heady notes of pine, yellow grapefruit and lemon with softer additions of orange peel and herbal spice developing mid palate. All the while that subtle yet crucial malt sweetness works in the background. It all rolls in to a dry and bitter finish which lingers.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean and tidy AF! Mild-medium body. Perfect carbonation. Perfect ABV (5%). Faultless.
Overall: Without a doubt the best pale ale we’ve had this year. The amount of flavor and aroma packed in to this is amazing. Especially considering the standard ABV. We’ve been super impressed by everything MC have released so far.. you Mountainer’s don’t know how good you’ve got it!
