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

bottle from Whole Foods. Pours nearly brown with a big tan head. Aroma has a lot of citrus, astringency, and some malty-ness to balance. The taste is bitter up front with a nice, light sweetness on the finish. This is more of an imperial red ale, in my opinion, but itís the best amber ale Iíve ever had. Really good flavor and, as always, a great brew from Maine Brewing.

Nocturne (1203) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
500ml bottle. Dark red shade with plenty of head. Aroma is pure American íCí hops in all their glory. Nicely balanced taste with more of those hops playing off against the darker malt bill. Consistent mouthfeel with just enough carbonation. A mild bitterness and lingering hints of perfume round this beer off. Nothing particularly complex here, but this beer just works so well. Itís exactly what I hoped for in an American amber ale.

500ml bottle shared by jsprime. deep amber, almost brown, tan head. deeper and maltier then the CBC redgod we had right before this. pretty much just as complex but a little less drinkable. would make a great fall beer.

An amber, a style Iím usually not fond of, but this stuff is nice. Huge hop nose. Big toast and nutty malts ending with huge hop presence. This is what an amber should be. Awesome.

A solid beverage with a nice hoppy scent. If you love hops this is a good beer. The only thing that isnít great with the Zoe is the palate; You will still taste this drink for about ten minutes. On a completely different note, the flavor slightly reminds me of a Surly Furious. Look for the Zoe & give it a try.
