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

16 oz bottle poured into HFB stemware. Dark brown with red hues. Light tan head with sticky lacing. Nose is light citrus hops, and some sweet candied orange. Taste is fresh leafy hops, lots of resin, caramel, grapefruit and lemon, a bit of orange. Very well balanced. Another solid offering from Maine.

500ml bottle: Pours a dark cloudy orange with a large rocky white head, aroma has oranges, lemons and grass, starts and ends bitter with a long spicy hop ending, medium bodied with playful carbonation. I’m not sure that I would call this an amber ale, but it is a tasty treat.

Cold, 16.9oz bottle: Pours a cloudy medium amber color with a huge, fluffy ivory head that leaves lacing. Aroma is of malt, fruit and wood, with notes of pine. Taste is of lightly roasted malts and resin, with some fruit and pine. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Ending is distinctly minty.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet and fruity hoppy aroma with a light toffee sweetness. The flavor has juicy sweet malts, sweet citric hops, and floral notes. Really good.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 21, 2011
500mL Bottle, purchased at Brookline Liquors - Brookline, MA. How are these beer so perfect? God, this nose is great. It’s the perfect arrangement of American aroma and flavor hops. Resin, tropical, and mint. Flavors are so sharp, neat, and well-defined, perfectly clean and structured. Dry and fresh, with an impeccable balance of malt sugar and hop bitterness. A magically wonderful Amber Ale.

#1400, and it was a good one! The label looks like it was printed out on somebody’s home computer. The aroma grabbed my attention - sweet, floral hops, bread, a little coffee. Dark pour with a thick, foamy head. Zoe tastes roasty, dry, and astringent with plenty of mocha-espresso flavor. Now (finally) here is an amber I really like (even if it is a touch dry for me). Mmm...veravera good.

Really loving this beer at the moment. Such an amazing hop profile, Wonderful citrus hop aroma, balanced flavours , huge hop on the palette, perfectly balanced. I don’t know of a better tasting amber beer actually I’d go as far to say this is currently one of my favourites all round and I can’t wait for more beers from Maine Beer

Bottle shared thanks to InspectorBob. Pours out a very attractive amber color (go figure) with a decent white head. Aroma is of some light caramel, some fruity citrus hops and light toffee. Taste is much the same with a good balance of hops and sweetness with light bready notes in there. Nice easy drinking beer that drinks more like a 5% or so.
