Natural peach extract is added to our Harbor Lighthouse Ale to produce a delicately flavored Peach Ale with a wonderful aroma and a clean, lightly toasted finish.
Bar Harbor Peach Ale is great with Mexican food!

Pours a two-fingered white head leaving no lace, nice deep amber color. Strong carbonation, light bodied and sweet peach nose. Starts and finishes with a strong peach flavor but otherwise not much malt or hops. Would make a good summer beer. $3.99 for a 22oz bottle from Tullyís Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Lovely aroma of peach and butter (diacetyl?), like a cobbler. Very mild flavor, some peach is actually accentuated by the proper food accompaniement (here pretzels actually doing it). But otherwise just vaguely malty and pretty uninspiring once it is in your mouth. Darker than many fruit beers. (2004 Christmas Party, my #13, groupís #12)

Bottle. Brown colors with a strong peach aroma and flavor. Otherwise painful and unenjoyable. It didnít mix well. Christmas Party 2004 ranked 13/15 (mine) and 12/15 (group).

Perhaps because it followed a Unibure beer that night, I found this unremarkable. The peach aspect of it was practiacally non- existent, and likely would have worked better in a lighter ale. However, I wonít refuse it if offered.

Tasted at the brewery. This is the Lighthouse ale, with peach flavor added. It has the same color as the LIghthouse, itís a nice amber looking beer with a decent head. The aroma is very peachy, which is expected. The taste also is mostly peach, but there are some malts and a light hop presence. It finishes sweet, but a little too peachy.

Has a nice amber color with fine carbonation and a fruit/peach smell. Taste is of peach and finishes with a funny tin flavor. Overall the tinny finish kills the beer, otherwise it would have been pretty good.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 3, 2002
Bottled (bomber). Nice-looking brew, with large creamy off-white head atop a dark brown/amber nearly opaque body; looks more like a brown ale than the typical light American fruit beer. Nose lightly peachy and hoppy; could be stronger. Flavor is a bit brown-ale like also, much maltier and darker than the typical raspberry-wheat type that weíve grown to love/hate. Peachiness again understated; body is as stated creamy into the finish; hops fairly muted. Definitely better than the first Bar Harbor brew I had, but this one seems a might stale also. Could just be something in the house style I donít like. Better than average summery fruit beer though; great for a 95 degree day like today!
