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

Bottled 12/15/2015 and enjoyed 1/3/2016 in a snifter. Look - Dark red, almost brown. Darker tan head than others. Medium bubbles settle to a ring. Lacing. Smell - Bread. Caramel. Malt. Pine. Peach. Citrus. Taste - Pine. Caramel malt. Light citrus. Feel - Bitter rips tongue. Light alcohol. Carbonation is high. Overall - This is a style than many do well. This isn’t the best or the worst. Light citrus/peach aroma is unique in something I haven’t had before.

Distro just hit Ohio. Obviously no Lunch or anything, but still some awesome offerings. Perfect amber pour with two finger off-white head. Nose of initial sweet toasted malt, floral and juicy lemony hops. Tate of gently toasted, rounded malt on the bottom end....flowery hoppiness, rindy linger. Very clean for an amber. Cleanliness seems to be a theme with this brewery. I can get with that.

Thanks to Thomas for sharing this. i am drinking it in the dark at Darkness day. Fairly heavy hop aroma and flavor, on the line between an amber ale or a red ipa. Hops are strong, well carbonated, good looking beer to the extent i can see it, it does have a nice lacing head. One of the best amber ales I have had the chance to try.

dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Pours clear auburn with a full inch of light brown head that leaves substantial lacing. Hoppy aroma of tropical fruit, peach, fresh grass, and clover. Malts and floral scents come through as it warms. Juicy fruit taste, bitter grapefruit rind, some herbals, lemongrass, and an earthy maltiness. Nice stinging bitter finish. Well crafted, very enjoyable.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2015 Fruity, colorful hops define the aromatics: light apricot and green mango, pineapple jam, and powdery floral notes are put together by a touch of toffee and honey wheat bread in the background. Spicy pepper and mild pine add a slight kick to it. The mouthfeel is firm, with a medium-to-light body and adequate carbonation. The taste is hoppy bitter, with implied malty sweetness. Peppery, piney flavors give way to mango peel and grapefruit as the beer goes down, for a green, dry, slightly earthy aftertaste. Excellent as a beer on the whole, intricately hopped and very engaging -- if not what’s on my mind when I think amber ale.

tfontana (508) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is amber reddish, no sparkle, little head with decent lacing. Aroma is dominant hops--pine, grass with a bit of hay, some corn. Taste is dominant bitter--resin, pine. Palate is light-to-medium with average to lively carbonation and bitter finish. Overall, fans of pale ale on the bitter side will enjoy this. Decent complexity but too far to the bitter side for me.

Pours a brownish amber color with a puffy off white head. Notes of toasted grains, orange citrus, brown sugar, and fresh air.

Bottle in Chevy Chase, MD. Nice amber body with medium, toasty head. Nose is quite hoppy, with caramel and toffee too. Taste of hops and pine and honey. Nice and prickly texture. Enjoyable.
