I believe I have drank and reviewed every bottled offering from Maine Beer Company other than their most recent release, Barrel Program 1, which I will get to in the coming weeks. Overall I really enjoy their beer with Mo and Lunch being my two favorites but all are enjoyable.
a tiny beautiful something is a single hop pale ale using El Dorado hops. I am not familiar with El Dorado hops but from the brewers description (see below) they seem to give the beer an candied orange, citrus taste and aroma. Appearance reminds me of other MBC beers, cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma has some citrus but I also got a lot of floral hops.
Taste follows with some citrus but floral seems to dominate. Finish is clean as always with MBC but this one did seem a bit watered down. Overall a good beer but they have better options and for the price point it is not something I would seek out again.
Cons: watered down
Alcohol Content: 5.5% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??

Brewers Description: a tiny beautiful something showcases a new hop variety, El Dorado. We started playing around with this hop last year. We brewed a pilot batch with this hop exclusively and one with it blended with some of our other favorite Northwest varieties. In the end, we decided that the El Dorado had such a unique and interesting character on its own, so we decided to brew it as a “single hop” pale ale. The aroma and flavor offer intense candied orange and citrus zest. A touch of flaked oats provide a rounded, silky mouthfeel. And like our other hoppy offerings, tiny was brewed to finish dry and clean.
