Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.

A: more brown/ black than red, but there is some red evident. Very dark for an Amber.

S: bready malts, like a somewhat charred biscuit. Very American IPA hop aroma on the secondary.

T: eminently drinkable, a little smoke even. Lots of malt, hops on the end. Dry, slightly bitter.

M: bubbly. Medium sized bubbles, but we'll carbonated.

O: great beer. Doesn't taste as dark as it looks. Very drinkable. Not a lot of alcohol notes or esthers. Very clean

16.9 oz. bottle poured into Duvel tulip glass. Bottled on April 28, 2011. Brought back from New England trip in August.

A: Clear copper; large, fluffy, tan head that takes up 1/2 of the glass and falls very slowly; leaves thick ring and patches of lacing; no effervescence.

S: Citrus, vanilla, caramel; slight pine.

T: Caramel malt followed by citrus, then piney/resinous hops, slight bitterness.

M: Medium body and light/medium carbonation; creamy & rich; finish is just a bit dry.

O: I love any time I can spend in Maine. Maine Beer Company has created yet more reasons for me to appreciate the state. Four more reasons, with Zoe being one of my top 2, along with Lunch. Peeper and Mean Old Tom are right there, too. Fresher releases are much more complex, as expected. This is a special ale from a young brewery to watch and, of course, to try when possible. Distribution has just been expanded to NH and VT, along with Boston, MA (also NYC, I believe). The price is a natural drawback, but doesn't reduce the quality.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Reddish copper color with aboutthree fingers of off white head that lasted several minutes with medium lacing left on the glass.

Smell: Sweet citrusy hops, maybe some other fruits like apple maybe?? Toasted malts were also present.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Well balanced medium bodied beer, taste of hops and toasted malts with a faint sweetness in the backround.

Overall: Personally not a big fan of reds, but this was a well crafted beer and credit is due were needed. I did enjoy this brew, but won't buy again myself. I can see why it gets high marks, and people that really like reds will enjoy this beer.

500ml bottle poured into a 12oz Schlitz mug.

First off for it doesn't look like an amber, more like a brown, with a small light brown head, nice looking though. Nose is very nice and hoppy, with a tiny bit of sweetness.

Very nice beer. It's hoppy and smooth with a good malt backbone, very rich with an awesome carbonation. Some bitterness on the finish. The malt is very different from SNPA but the hoppy finish is reminiscent of it. Another great surprise from this small brewery, keep it up!

Thanks to jctribe25 for surprising me with one of my "wants"! Bottled April 28th, 2011 (?). Poured from a 22oz bomber into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

A careful pour from a well chilled bottle still builds up 1/3 of the glass with rocky, almost Belgian-like beige foam. Dense mountainous lacing and unending retention. Very dark liquid, chocolate with a faint bronze gradient of highlights towards the bottom of the glass.

Leafy, pine-laden, earthy hop aromatics with a touch of malt and orange zest as well.

Pepper (both black and a touch of super-fresh green bell), gentle caramel, and more earth on the palate. Strong, mineral-forward bitterness throughout with clean dark hop flavors. Malt profile brings to mind some NW IPAs as much as any amber ale. Finishes crisp, dry, and with a touch of cocoa.

Creamy, medium-bodied, well carbonated...

A simple but novel take on the style, above average among its peers.

Maine Beer Company "Zoe"
16.9 oz. bottle, freshness dated "122312 23"
$7.95 @ The Beer Shoppe in Ardmore, PA

I've had this beer before and I'll have it again. When? I don't know. Why? Well, I can answer that - there's something about the bright and citrusy hops that attracts me. I'm like a fish looking for a shiny lure. Bright and citrusy hops will work. But wait? Is that all that's needed? Are the hops enough? No, not really, I need something to balance the hops. What, pray tell then is that? Well, malt and a bit of yeasty fruitiness, I think. And Zoe delivers all of that.

The appearance is very good, and certainly better than most. It's a clear mahogany (when poured properly to leave the lees behind), and a creamy head of light tan tops it. The head retention and lacing are both excellent.

The aroma is all about bright and citrusy hops. Grapefruit, citrus rind, pineapple...

The flavor adds just enough dark caramel and a hint of chocolate / fudge to balance it along with a spritz of yeasty fruitiness (berries and apple). A very-firm to solid bitterness balances it, and it finishes dry and fruity with notes of berries, citrus, and apple. Maybe even some grape (both white and red).

In the mouth it's medium-bodied with a very-fine bubbled and natural carbonation that leaves it gently bristling and then creamy across the palate.

It's raucously hoppy, and I use that word rather than aggressive or tenacious because it suggests a little bit of fun. Yet it's somehow balanced. And that balance may be teetering, but it still somehow seems to hold. So, although it is a little off-kilter, it's not so far off that it's undrinkable. It all comes together in the end. Worth trying.

Poured into a pint glass. Thanks to CTSparky for bringing this back from the brewery.

A - Brown with a strong reddish color. Reasonable amount of white foam. Pours relatively mild.

S - Hoppy. A very pleasant smell of hops with some citrus and pine. A perfect beer to have in the fall!

T - A good drinker. The flavor of hops stays throughout, with a sweet taste mixed in. I had this just over a month from bottling. I would think the fresher the better.

M - A little heavy for an amber, but very solid. You don't taste the beefy ABV for the style. Mild carbonation.

D - Yep, I'd have another. Shared the bomber and would easily crack open another.

Give these guys extra props for promoting that they are a environmentally green and that they donate proceeds to whale preservation. A good gesture on a solid brew!

Pours a very dark amber color, almost looks cola like. The big head is dense and leaves a nice sheet of lacing on the glass. A bit too dark for the style.

The aroma is nice and hoppy. A good combination of grapefruit and pine notes. Very fresh aroma. A bit of a pineapple tropical fruit hop aroma in the end.

The taste is of a bready caramel base, some very light toast notes. The rest of the profile is all hops. Orange and grapefruit form the citrus flavors, to go along with some tropical fruit. Piney and resiny hops finish up the flavor. There is a powdery yeast presence as well.

Moderate body with tingly carbonation, not too lively. Sweet to begin with but ends with a noticable hoppy bitterness. Bitterness doesn't linger which is a plus.

A very good hoppy brew. I would prefer more caramel notes and less tropical fruit hops but I am being picky. Can't go wrong with this beer.

One of the best reds I've had. While a bit hoppy, especially in the nose, the taste is just superb and easy to drink. So much more complexity than most other amber ales, with hints of raspberries, grapefruit, and just the right amount of hops (less noticeable in taste than aroma, which is good for me). The breadiness makes it so much more interesting than most in this style. Also, it has a beautiful dark amber color with gorgeous foamy, bubbly head. Recommended.

Can't remember for the life of me who sent me this beer. Had a couple trades come to me at the same time from the New England area. So whoever sent it to me, big thanks for a great extra! Poured into a blanco diablo pint glass.

A- Pours very dark, almost brown color. Fluffy one finger head or so. Left lots of lace all the way down the glass. Very interesting looking beer.

S- Nice big hoppy aroma. Floral, a little citrus aroma up front and through the middle. Sweet caramel malt smell at the end. Very strong nose to it.

T- Wow, very nice flavors going on here. Like the nose, big hop flavors burst out at first. No middle here, goes straight to malts finishing up the drink. The two balance out well, with a rather sharp difference. Bitterness starts a little strong and slowly dies down throughout the drink.

M- Medium body, moderate carbonation. Gets a little thick, syrupy, but still rather smooth.

O- By far, the best amber ale I've had. Full of flavors, and very well balanced out. Big thanks to whoever sent this as an extra!

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Color is a dark amber-carmal color, bordering on brown. Poured with a solid two-inch tan head. Disippated slowly, leaving some splotchy lacing.

S: Herbal, piney, green hops are evident right away. This smells great. Noticable caramel reminds you that this isn't an overtop IPA.

T: The malts - caramel with some fainy bready flavors, shows up first on the taste. As the taste goes on, the bitterness shows back up, although the clear piney flavors are a little more subdued. Finishes rather abrubtly with just some residual bitterness. Surprisingly, a little bit of heat from the alcohol as well.

M: Medium body, medium carbonantion. No issues and matches style expectations.

D: Nice. I thought the taste was a little bit of a let down following the excellent smell. But overall, this is still a great hoppy amber and I would seek this out again. I imagine it's amazing fresh from the tap.

Got this as an extra in a trade with Bendurgin. This is the second beer released by Maine Beer Company (the other being Spring Peeper Ale) and I'm very excited to be able to try it.

A: Very dark brown body that must be held up to light to see through. The head on this is very nice---an inch of very light tan, tight 'foam' that dissipates to about a 1/2 inch and stays around for a very long time. Lots of lacing also.

S: The pine hits you right away----very resiny and slightly grapefruity but...blended in nicely with this is a very subtle chocolate/coffee aroma. There's a background of roasted maltiness that props it all up---I don't give out too many 5.0's but this smells really nice!

T: The first smack of the hops is more bitter than I expected it to be. The roasted malt and chocolate and coffee are all there and they blend in with the bitter hops. A little more hop flavor and less bitterness would be nice here.

M: The carbonation on this is very nice. The mouthfeel is about 'medium' for the style but the carbonation really makes this feel nice.

D: Goes down very smoothly for an abv of 7.2%. I'd have another one if I had it.

The bar was set very high on this one with the aroma. This is a great beer and I'd definitely seek it out again.

Thanks a lot to tenderbranson69 for sharing this bottle, I was looking forward to trying this as I had 2 other beers by Maine Beer and they were both enjoyable. I tasted this chilled in a 1/2 pint.

The color is deep crimson w/ copper hues and light haze with thick 2 finger light beige head with tight bead. I really love the aroma as it stands out from other amber ales I have had recently with some fruity and hoppy floral notes with slight ruby red grapefruit odor and a sweet pine tinge accents the subtle malt in the nose. The feel is great -mostly dry, semi-bitter with slight nuttiness and hint of malt sweetness with semi-high carbonation and bitter dry finish.

The taste has a light toast and cocoa-nuttiness with a mild tinge of citrus zest and pine hop flavoring. The hop flavors do add a slight chalkiness to the middle with mild bready malt coming into its own with subtle biscuit-like essence bu a nice interplay of the hops with mostly grapefruit flavor in the finish. Overall this kind of amber is kind of a red IPA as is has a very spicy and highly hopped example of the American Amber style which can range from dull and almost a brown to this style which is hop forward and yet still has a nice backbone of malt. I can't say enough good things about this it was as good as I hoped it would be with a nice refreshing dry finish.

A - Deep dark red/brown opaque body, with a huge thick tan head.

S - Bready malts and grapefruit

T - Bitter hops rush forward followed by a deep woody and malty base.

M - Slick with moderate/high carbonation. Fairly thin without detracting from flavor

O - I'm really loving this beer. So crisp and pungent, incredibly drinkable. I'll be picking this up again, but not as often as I'd like considering I paid $6 for a pint bottle...

A - Very dark, can only see shadows through it. They call this an amber, but it's more of a glowing auburn; reminds me of dark cherries. Beautiful and resilient three finger cream-colored head with lovely lacing. Thick, strong, perfect head.

S - Citrus and pine I can smell from several feet away. A hint of malted barley. Very even scent. Strong hint of honey as it warms.

T - The grain bill is up front, leaving a toasty, bread flavor, but fairly light. Balanced with a very dry hoppiness. No sweetness, and a cloying dryness. Very slight citrus peel flavor as it warms.

M - Medium body, with a thick, clinging finish. Very dry finish, not unlike champagne. Very drinkable, and the carbonation produces mild foaming vice any real stinging.

O - This flavor profile isn't my favorite, but I think it's a fantastic job on the part of Maine Beer Co.; it's just not right for my personal tastes. You can really taste the quality ingredients and craftsmanship in this beer.

Bottled 05/07/13 (I love that Maine Beer Co. puts the date right on the label).

Pours a very deep amber almost brown in color with a big off white head leaving behind some awesome lacing. The smell is floral and grapefruit hops up front with some grainy notes and a bitter almost spent coffee bean scent. The flavor is rich and malty with a good amount of citrusy hops and a grainy after taste. The mouthfeel is a bit big from high carbonation, but maintains a good level of drinkability. Overall I am glad I stumbled on to a fresh bottle of this on a trip to Vermont.

A very enjoyable tasty red ale. Has a very maltly flavor to it with just the right overtones of hops which gives it a smooth aftertaste. A little pricey but worth it you will not be disappointed.

Appearance - Pours a chestnut brown/copper with two fingers of foamy beige head.

Smell - Caramel malts, citrus hops, pine resin, light tropical fruits, touch of brown sugar.

Taste - Caramel malt sweetness (just enough, not cloying) followed up by the piney, citrusy hop bitterness, about a moderate level to it. Hint of tropical fruit and brown sugar just to make it a little more interesting.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A touch of stickiness on the palate. Bitterness lingers into the finish.

Overall - For my first Maine Beer Company offering, they deliver a solid American Amber with a nice hop profile and caramel malt sweetness.

500ml bottle poured into tulip 13/4/14

A murky looking root beer with sediment and tiny pieces of yeast and enough clarity to see bubbles going up the side, three fingers of dark tan head slowly falls leaving rings deep down the glass I can easily count 8 and that's something you don't see everyday, still a little foam at the bottom

S grapefruit, lemon, manderine orange, spruce, leafy earthy notes, Iced tea powder, brown sugar, caramel, and faint coco, well balanced with a fair bit going on from both the malt and hops

T slightly more malty notes in the mouth, dark bread, lots of burnt brown sugar, still has plenty of citrus and earthy notes, tastes great but the nose has something extra working for it

M leaning towards full, not as much carbonation as you would guess from the massive well retained foam but still creams up a little, not quite sticky on the lips, leafy citrus lingers

O another winner from Maine, well balanced and has plenty going on, didn't take much time to drink the bottle, just a couple sips left at this point

I've had 4 beers from Maine and all have been great, its been a while since I've been this impressed by my first crack at a brewery. Find their beers and drink them, and send me a bottle of Lunch!!

Huge thanks to mkabull for sending this in a recent trade.

Pours a very dark copper/chestnut brown color with faint mahogany edges and a two finger frothy light beige head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with chunks of soapy lacing.

Floral hop aroma with lots of dank, earthy pine and sweet dark malt. Lots of caramel and chocolate sweetness along with some biscuit and toffee. At first the hops are prevalent in the nose but as it warms it's very malt forward.

Medium bodied but on the fuller end with a blast of earthy, bitter hops up front that lingers over the sweet malt profile into a bitter, dry finish. Lots of dank, uber-fresh piny hop flavor which is excellently complimented by the sweeter malt notes. Lots of chocolate, caramel and toffee flavor without getting in the way of the hops. Usually I dislike hoppy beers with this strong of a malt presence but here it creates perfect balance and adds another layer of complexity.

Ratings are correct below, but I changed some marks above to make the final rating as close as possible with Beer Advocate's "revamped" system. The 4.16 overall rating is accurate.

Type: 500ml (16.9-oz.) bottle
Glass: Firestone pint glass
From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
Price: $6.99
Purchased: July 14, 2015
Consumed: July 18, 2015
Misc.: Born on April 28, 2015

Poured a caramel, reddish amber, semi-clear color with a whopping seven fingers of khaki tan, frothy head. A few light bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good amount of thick, layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top. (Sight - 3.88)

Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops and malts. Getting wet Cascade, rye, sugary iced tea powder, sticky toffee, caramel, dry roasty notes, chocolate covered orange candy, dark fruits, faint cooked vegetables and some Citra zest. (Smell - 4.00)

Taste follows the nose nicely. Got the nice mix of hops and malts again. Wet Cascade, earthy rye, powdery iced tea mix, toffee, dark fruits, roasted nuts, caramel, toasty biscuit and still that chocolate covered orange candy (one of the See’s Candy). Really good for the style. (Taste - 4.25)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 4.25)

I really liked this beer. This was all over the place for me, especially the taste and feel. Really good for the style. Wouldn’t be as high if it was an IPA (imperial IPA). (Overall - 4.13)

very happy to get this... went to the smuttfest in portland maine and was able to get this at tully's and there were some at rsvp. The woman at Tully's was awesome!! i went with two friends and we stayed and talked with her for a while.. anyway the zoe is a hot commodity out there so was very grateful to get some...

A - This pours a deep brown color.. i was expecting it to be a tad lighter.. this is the second glass i've had btw.. but it is dark with a pretty impressive head as well as lacing.. looks like a very nice brown/amber brew with a nice body..

S - this smells better than i remembered before... can smell the hoppiness.. definitely smells like a double ipa.. the hoppiness citrus smell jumps out at you... i'm a little suspect of the freshness however... it is good but i almost think i might have one that is just taking that turn and coming off the hoppiness.

T - Very good... again i wonder about the true freshness.. it tastes like when it's fresh it's fantastic.. it's like i can sense the greatness of this but i think i'm just falling a little short.. but i would still pick this up again..

M - It has great flavor.. maybe a little thin and crisp for me.. but that's probably just me.. very refreshing.. just took another sip.. it's not heavy... it's almost a little thin here.. good carbonation however... i hate to sound like i'm zig zagging but i do like this...

D - My style is more along the DIPA and Imperial Stout so i don't know what to say.. cuz i can easily have this but it makes me want something of the other.. this just falls a little short with hoppiness for me but it's an amber ale so i can't judge it like that.. i have to judge it for what it is... in that case i think this is an A beer... cuz it's not my style and i'm still enjoying this... glad i was able to get some!!

Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 4/24/11

Lot 031011

Many thanks to Brez07 for this long-time want

Stained brown, tobacco color. Soft highlights of lightly shaded plum. After reaching just shy of three fingers of foam the head started to slowly collapse to 1/4th inch layer. A decent amount of lace catches mid-way through the glass.

Smells excellent; exactly what I like within the style (I'm calling this one an imperial red, by the by). Hops are lively, expressive and in no short supply. Tropical citrus notes are passed through a floral filter that has already trapped small bits of pine resin. Beneath the hops are notions of caramel and bread (becoming a bit more balanced with warmth).

Exhibiting more of a piney bent, the flavor profile is accented by a moderate bitterness throughout. Citrus seems downplayed compared to the aroma; here, it is zesty and embedded in the mix. There is a spicy kick as well. Toasty, bready malts with subtle caramel. Finishes dry with hints of cocoa, of all things. The aforementioned bitterness compounds over time, nearing astringency.

The medium body is laden with resiny goodness. Carbonation is moderate and suits the dryness of the beer. Alcohol is hidden but at 7.2% abv it sneaks up on you. Bitterness lingers after the finish.

This is a pretty nice imperial red. It's easy to drink and enjoyable. This would be in rotation were I within distribution range. Recommended.

A murky dark golden copper-brown color with a very healthy light tan head and super lacing. The aroma is surprisingly big with lots of nutty malt and pine hops as well as a little dark fruit. Really makes me think of something more along the lines of a barleywine or an imperial red. Very nice but not quite what I expected. The taste buds pick up a more blended mix of fruity malt and piney hops along with some grassy edges. The body is medium at best with tingly carbonation and a frothy feel. Very good though I'd say the aroma beats the flavor.

I got to try Peeper Ale from these guys and thought it was great. Glad to get to try another brew from them. PT bottle...

A: A gorgeous deep dark red with a 1 inch off white head that fades at a decent pace. Very good.

S: Smells of a nice clean hop upfront with some great sweet citrus notes in the middle and some earthy grassiness on the backend. Very good!

T: An earthy bitterness upfront with a mild sweet citrus blended in. Some lemon peel quickly follows with a hint of spicy notes and grapefruit. Good.

M: Medium body with a great carbonation. A dry clean finish. Good.

D: Goes down good.

All in all, this is another solid beer from Maine Beer Co. I've only tried two brews from them and both are solid. Definitely give this one a try if you like hoppy dry beers!
