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

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.

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.

Franckg (1279) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
Au nez on sent le houblon et un peu de poivre. Ces saveurs reveinnent en bouche avec une touche de torréfaction suivie d’une amertume sèche

marcus (9221) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 12, 2015
On tap at Hopleaf. Pours near black with a nice tan head and a zesty red aroma. There is a dry raspy red malt flavor, the epitome of amber ale. Lovely.
