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

Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks Aaron for the pour! Dark reddish orange, with white head, aroma has notes of pine, simcoe with grapefruit, citrus, some nice caramel, hints of earth, slight lemon and orange peel. Taste is a mix of grapefruit, lemon, some hints of mineral but not bad, nice caramel, toffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter, dry. Nicely done.

Boutip (5365) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear deep amber color ale with a large dirty white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of intense hops is quite interesting with nice floral undertones. Taste is a great mix between intense hops presence with limited bitter notes and some really good citrus and earthy hops notes. Malt backbone is quite solid and not too sweet to cut through the hops profile. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Solid offering with great dry-hopping execution.

thome50 (1246) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle via Ernesto, thanks! Pours a deep amber with a big pillowy tan head. Aroma is off the charts hop, slight dank, citrus, bitter. Taste is more malt foward but with a non-expired IPA malt way. Citrus peal is there and then finishes with a lot of bitterness for the style. I like it but with the citrus sweet came through more but that is likely more me wanting this to be an IPA. Overall, a rad amber.

scooter520 (185) - - OCT 15, 2012
Bottled 9/30/12. Appearance: dark chestnut brown with red tones and big foamy tan head. Aroma: hoppy citrus and caramel, toasty maltiness. Taste: light caramel and toasted biscuit malt and nuttiness with citrus, floral hop flavor ending slightly sweet and bitter dry. Mouthfeel: medium body with medium carbonation. Overall: again very well crafted and balanced as a highly hopped amber. Maine Beer Company has really made an impression on me with this and their Peeper Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cpetrone84 (1776) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2012
pour is a very dark copper with a good bit of tan head. Nose is hoppy, grainy, and slightly roasted. Orange citrus, crystal malt, and roasted almost burnt biscuit. Taste is more hop forward, citrusy and light herbal note with an undertone of grain and a light toasted note. The body is nice and light with high carbonation and a lingering bitterness.

smm (20) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Picked up a bottle of this and Moe when I was in Boston last week... So far, quite impressed with them.. I digress. Zoe pours a deep deeeeep red with a creamy tan head. Aroma of citrus and roast, a bit caramel-y. Taste matches up well, a bit of creamy fruityness, roasted malt, sweet caramel. A bit of hop bite and a lack of astringency, which seems so prevalent in ambers, set this beer off. Ambers definitely aren’t my go to style, but this beer holds up nicely, a clean crisp finish goes a long way in my book.

Pailhead (6035) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate grapefruit, citrus, and caramel. It pours a transparent amber with a small soapy off-head. The flavor starts with dose of fruit. There’s a good dose of caramel in the middle. The finish has moderate-heavy grapefruit. It’s medium bodied with lively, bordering on prickly, carbonation.
