Summertime, bottled. At the first sip I knew that EBC Mow Master Ultra Pale Ale would become a staple in my hot weather drinks’ arsenal.
Beautiful, bright, crystal clear, light-catching gold with a finger of head and moderate retention.
As I’ve learned to expect from Ellicottville Brewing Company, the aroma was full on hops. The scent was so hoppy that I was surprised even for EBC, being that it’s an ultra pale style. Grass and citrusy grapefruit mingled with a touch of pine.
Highly refreshing. The citrusy and grassy hops star here but in no way overwhelm the beer. Balanced with a hint of honey sweetness, Mow Master is light, thirst-quenching and, for an ultra pale, surprisingly packed with flavor.
Medium-light body with a perfect amount of carbonation for summertime. Not watery in any way but wholly refreshing.
Honestly, EBC couldn’t have picked a better name; Mow Master says it all. I see myself drinking a fair amount of these through the summer, when temperatures and humidity rise. Whether working out in the yard or relaxing poolside, Mow Master Ultra Pale Ale will be a perfect companion.
