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

oobawa (3034) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2019 Oh my. Gorgeous, beautiful pint, pouring out a slightly opaque burnt umber with a frothy beige head and infinite lace. Woody nose leads to a citric, caramel-laced front end, dusted with cocoa and dripping with resin, grapefruit zest, pine, and grass, leading to an herbal, bitter finish underlined by a subtle, coffee-tinged sweetness. Hops cling to the palate long into the fade, as does a tea-like undercurrent. Not sure if I could distinguish this hoppy amber ale from a Red IPA, but who cares. It's amazing.

BelgianBeerGal (4852) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2019 Growler from Hop City Birmingham on the way back from INDOC. Pours out a chestnut brown color with a foamy tan head that lasts. Huge aroma of fresh cut fir and caramel malt. The flavor starts bitter, then slightly caramel sweet and finishes with a hint of coffee and grassy hops. Really nice beer.

Dacrza (1326) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2019 DATE: August 24, 2019... OCCASION: enjoying the first of Brad's much-too-kind parting gifts from our roommates' get-together--and the first of three Maine offerings... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... this pours a nearly opaque, dark mahogany brown body that hoists a foamy, clumpy, brownish white head... like the sea, its head is amazingly resilient, sitting as it was poured five minutes later... this is a stunning amber to the eyes... thick caramel and toffee form a strong base with oats and cereal grains... above, pepper spice, pine, plum, some boozy rum, resin, and tea leaf take its complexity to a slow sipping degree... cherry and hard fruits also present... a dampened forest pervades... fitting a whale museum in a bottle, this drinks with the quality of a beer far below its 7.2% ABV... its flavor profile is diverse, reflecting its aroma with plum, dank citrus, pine and tea that marry caramel and toffee in a way that tabloids would be jealous of... with lofty expectations, this beer nonetheless nails its profile and then ups the ante with its complexity and drinkability....

sinfull (2316) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2019 Mahogany color. Big, beige head. Bread, toasted caramel and earthy hops in the area. Strong, hoppy bitterness in taste, which is surprisingly pleasant. Probably the best amber I had.

OsuStu (433) - - JUN 15, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2019 16 oz bottle. Very dark hazy amber with a massive khaki head. A very good looking beer. Aroma is nutty and earthy, hoppy and spicy. A little hoppy citrus and pine. Caramel and fig sweetness. Nuts and spiciness. Astringent taste that lingers keeping me from being happier with this one. Soft and oily.

closey22 (2540) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2019 Cloudy amber brown with thin beige head Aroma is hoppy floral with slight sweet malt notes Flava is roasty nutty malty with hop spice bitterness Feels medium to light with moderate fizzy foam Finishes bitter mildly roasty

onceblind (14597) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2019 Deep dark amber hue with a large foamy ivory head. Lovely aroma with some nuanced amber crystal malt and a little caramel and a little sticky floral grapefruity hop resin. Smooth flavor that’s got some crystal malts and a lovely gentle toasty sweetness with a lovely hoppy bitterness bringing flavors of grapefruit and pine and floral resins. Really lovely.

zoucrew102 (3533) - - MAY 27, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2019 500ml bottle. Caramel malt aroma with notes of toasted malt, toffee, grapefruit, orange and a hint of pine resin. Pours deep amber colored with one finger of toffee brown head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with caramel, toffee and grapefruit citrus flavors. Finishes smooth and a bit dry with toasted malt, orange citrus and a touch of pine resin. Fantastic amber!

explosivedog (4535) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2019 500ml bottle. Pours deep amber. Pine, orange zest, grapefruit zest, biscuit, caramel, toffee, sweet red fruit, little bitterness in the finish. Good soft body. Fantastic balance. Gorgeous example of the style.

Hoppy yet has some deep carmel. Vanilla and a little bit of nut. Lingers with a slightly bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
