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 in a recent trade from Chris, thank you! Pour is a deep, nearly clear amber with medium light tan head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops with a very light sweetness; almost perfume-like. Flavor is very well-rounded with sweet malt up front along with a lightly resinous hop bite. Following that is a long, evolving balance between sweet caramel malt and crisp, clean hop. This does make me smile. Balance is the word for me on this one.

fishonmyplane (350) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 5, 2014
A solid but overrated amber ale, in my opinion (100th percentile? come on). It delivers as promised: an extra-hoppy amber ale. A strange concept, and I’m not sure who it appeals to; are there a bunch of amber ale fans out there demanding more hops?. It tastes like a well-brewed amber ale, but without proper balance, and with an unusually high ABV.

Concealer (649) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange, dark amber with a foamy amber head that has a sticky lacing and lasts. Aromas of resin, pine, spice, light citrus and malt. Flavor is the same with some caramel and earthy notes. Medium bodied, bitter dry finish.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a hazy orange-amber with a huge long-lasting frothy beige head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is nice and hoppy, with floral and fruity hops, along with caramel malt. Flavour of bready caramel malt, a decent amount of hops and a long moderate bitter finish -- almost Pale Ale-ish. Average to medium bodied. A solid and enjoyable Amber (!).

kerenmk (2001) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvisg. Murky amber with cream head. Hoppy, leafy, some lychee aroma, hoppy with a little black pepper taste. Medium body, smooth texture.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2013
dark plum with puffy cream head. Sticky sugar amber nose, light orange and candy, more in flavor with heavy oils and marshmallow through sticky end. Even Maine is susceptible to amber ales.

Christpuncher (710) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2013
This is an incredibly hoppy amber ale. Super fruity and I can easily say it is an ipa. Pours a deep reddish brown in color. Had at my brother in laws ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radio_nowhere (701) - Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pint bottle into snifter glass, hazy brown-amber color with half-finger of tan head lingering. Aroma of pine/citrus(grapefruit) hops and light caramel malt. Taste is hop bitterness throughout (resin, orange, mango, some grass) with notes of light chocolate, char, toffee and tea. Medium body, moderate carbonation, astringent with dry bitter finish. Impressed the hop bitterness lasts and lasts yet well balanced. Good!

Hinge hop aroma, brownish red color. Nice hoppy red caramel flavor but a slightly sour aftertaste that doesn't fit for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
