Poured from bottle into a snifter glass.
Pours a nice deep dark amber, half a finger of head.
Smells nice and hoppy and good malt backbone.
Taste is really nice. Perfectly balanced with hops and malt to create a very nice hoppy amber ale.
Mouthfeel was not too thin which I appreciated.
Overall, a very nice hoppy amber ale. And I loved the story on the bottle.

2 week old bottle. 2 glasses, poured my initial 12-14 ounces in a pint glass, then the rest with yeast into a smaller glass to examine. pours murky brown. bit of sediment from what I can see through the murk. spectacular hop aroma. lot of bite, clean, subtle bitterness lingers

Very solid offering from MBC once again. Beautiful citrus hops dominate the nose, while the taste is a mixture of bitter hops up front and a delicate, chocolate-like lingering on the back. Appearance is dark -- like a mix of brown and mahogany. A prominent creamy head contributes. Not a session beer by any means, like some of MBC's other offerings, but Zoe is an excellent full-bodied example of the amber style. If you find Nugget Nectar overly assertive or fruity, try Zoe instead. I know many who prefer it.

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
