COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a rainy fall day in 2009, my five-year-old daughter Zoe and I were wandering the streets of Bar Harbor and stumbled across the Whale Museum. Zoe loved it. Hopefully we do the same for you. Cheers! Our Happy, Hoppy, Amber-Ale

500ml bottle shared by Bvery...thanks man! Dark cloudy amber pour. Hop forward aroma. Taste follows with bitterness lasting. Liking the wheelbarrow better but this is still awesome.

The shining star of the non-lottery beers at World of Beer Fest. A very drinkable beer, this one goes down smooth. Toffee and caramel flavor with a mildly bitter finish. Outstanding.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2015
On tap at Church Key, DC. More or less clear in the glass, amber in color, topped by a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma it’s on the malty, almost meaty side at first, followed by bread, caramel notes, grapefruit and some pond cones. It’s full bodied and smooth, with a nice carbonation level. Where the malts dominated the aroma, the hops run the show in the flavor. Grapefruit and pine cones, with bready malts in the back. Lasting finish. Quite nice this one, how an amber ale should be. 150620

kevinsenn (1508) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of whole wheat bready grains, some c-hops. Grainy toasty taste, not much caramel, c-hops, and a very dry bitter finish. Tastes more "brown" than "amber" to me, if you know what I mean. Looks more brown too.

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 6, 2015
500 ml bottle purchased at 7-11, Kittery. Jason is still doing a great job as the manager of this store! Selection is always up-to-date and spot on. Color is copper with lasting head. Aro,a is toasted grain, caramel and mild grapefruit.

The base is that of a standard Amber ale with toffee, grain and caramel. The hops are a mix of grapefruit and moderate pine. The bitterness shows me dry pine with a gritty texture. Kind of dirty. Highly drinkable but nowhere near my favorite from this brewery.

glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain, herbs and pine for the hops, light leather for the yeast, with wood and pepper in the background. Head is average size, frothy/creamy light beige with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear, but murky on the last pour, brown with a red tint. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a lively carbonation and finishes dry. Nice to have an Amber Ale with a touch of flavor and complexity.

Helsdon (301) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
First time having a beer from MBC, and I have to say I like their attitude (at least what I can gather from the label.) I also like there beer, Pours the advertised amber, leaning toward the brown scale, with some cloud. Big hop nose of resin, and a little pine. Very smooth taste, heavy on the hops for an "ale" but with a good balance of resins, mild bitterness, a little perfume with a mildly sweet caramel malt backbone. Mild bitterness on the after. Very nice, a well balanced beer. And now it’s gone. Sigh.
