4.33/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 1.9 pint bottle into a Berkshire Mountain Brewers pint glass.

A: Deep, cloudy, burnished brick red amber color with a persistent and creamy two-finger head of foam which leaves some nice sudsy lace.

S: Lots of spicy and sweet hop notes, orange, citrus, pine, fig and raisins blend together to form a fruity and hoppy aroma with a warm and solid malty undertone.

T: Juicy and roasted caramel malts punch up front with fruity dates, figs and raisin before giving way to a wave of pine and tangerine hops with herbal, spicy and boozy smacking notes. Smoky and meaty almost at the finish, it wraps up with lingering bittersweetness and a hop slick.

M: Meium-full bodied, pretty clean with a slocik, bitter hop residue in the mix. Slightly creamy and well-carbonated.

O: Whoa, mama, what an American amber! The 7.2% ABV pushes this beer into the stratosphere of American strong ale, with its complex fruity and smoky malt profile combined with lush, bitter hops that provide a full-range of flavors. A really nice brew that I wouldn't mind grabbing again and even aging a bit to see where things go.

A - nearly bottle-colored brown...a very deep, murky colored brownish amber with a sandy colored, one finger thick head that quickly evolves into a light lacing

S - nice fruity hoppy aroma.. orange peel, coriander, grapefruit...fairly fresh smelling..

T - the fruity hops mixes nicely with the sweet malty goodness... yummy!

M - cold and creamy...nice,light texture...

O - well worth seeking out if you've not had it... as my friend would say, quite a tasty treat !

I've had Zoe dozens of times and can't believe I haven't reviewed it yet!

Bottle purchased at the Hunger Mountain Coop in Montpelier VT.

Appearance: Pours a nice medium dull burgandy with a 2 finger slightly off white (beige) crown that displays good retention and lace.

Smell: Piney resinous hops dominate the malty base. slight toffee notes and lots of bready notes stem from said malt base.

Taste: Same as the nose but with more balance as the malt flavor stands up more.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with decent carbonation.

overall: A very enjoyable and drinkable beer that I'm fond of. Extremely good when fresh.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a great looking deep amber color topped by a frothy, thick head of off-white almost tan foam.

S: Caramel! Its all about caramel in this beer. Nice and malty at first, but on a second sniff all I get are hops! Grassy hops to boot. Smells wonderful!

T: Its straight up hops! I love this beer! It kinda tricks you to expect something malty but it drinks like an IPA. Those grassy hops come through in force here. I get a tad of lingering sweetness on the finish as well.

M: Moderate carbonation, and a medium body.

D: Drinks quite nicely. If I didn't have to drive to Maine every time I wanted one..

Bottled 3/25/14
Decent copper color hue with a pretty large frothy head with solid retention. Smells of hops, citrus, pine, and fruits. Moderate carbonation with some bitterness and stickyness to the mouthfeel. The taste though is where I got lost. Not spectacular and nothing over the top. Just kind of the typical pine and citrus. Seemed to be lacking flavor for me; not sure but maybe my palate was off or the 30 days since bottling has robbed the brew of taste. Overall I really wanted to rave about Zoe but I just guess I'll have to try it again to see if anything changes from my first offering. That being said; still a really nice beer just not my favorite from Maine Beer Co..

1 pint .9 oz bottled on 02/09/12. thanks to valdieu2 for the opportunity!

a - pours a murky chestnut color that glows garnet when held up to a light. gave me a dense, two finger, creamy, tan head that lasts for quite a while. lacing completely coats the inside of the glass.

s - fresh baked bread, grapefruit, grass, and notes of grape.

t - mmmm. notes of grapefruit, red grape, and raisin all supported by delicious, nutty, chocolatey malt. a resinous, piney bitterness washes over before a lingering dry and bittersweet finish. very well balanced.

m - medium in body with just the right amount of carbonation. medium co2 profile.

o - really a wonderful beer and definitely put a smile on my face. much hoppier than most amber ales that i have tried, but that's a good thing. worth seeking out imho.

Color is a nice amber with plenty of head.
Odor is a little piney and citrusy. Some malt comes through as well. A little bit of biscuit in there too.
Taste is hops up front. Transitions and becomes more complex. Some malt, toffee and a little grapefruit come through. Ends with some very nice hop bitterness.
Mouth feel is middle of the road. Not overly carbonated and not heavy.
Overall, an excellent beer from Maine Beer. Balanced and complex. Hits many of the requirements for an outstanding beer.

Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a tulip. Purchased in Wakefield ri. Bottled 2/26/13.

A - pours a hazy amber-cherry body with a 3 finger thick, dense, khaki colored head that reduces slowly to a mushroom cloud of frothy foam. Exhibits thick lacing. Picture
Perfect.

S- pungent pine, citrus, resin aromas. Very upfront and easy to detect, I can tell
This beer will be hoppy. das dank

T- Big malt character upfront- caramel , toffee, vanilla. Following this comes the hops- pine and huge weed resin notes. Smokey, roasty flavor on the finish. Aftertaste is bitter and borderline astringent. Super flavorful .

M- medium heavy body with medium carbonation. Fairly easy to drink.

What a beautifully crafted beer - you could call this a dipa and no one would question it, but the huge malt character balances out the hops and makes for a delicious red ale. Recommendable.

Poured into the MBC ale glass

A: dark ruddy color with an ecru head that compacts from a finger to a half finger, with soapy lacing the whole time. Creamy tight carbo. slightly hazy, not hazy but not clear.

S: light quad notes. figs raisins and peppery yeast and breadiness. Hops are mild, piney and welcome.

T: Some malty tea notes with sweet dark fruit. The bitterness causes a sharp counterpoint mid-quaff. spicy yeast notes are mild.

M: Creamy medium-full body and nice velvety mouthfeel. Malt shines on finish with a slightly phenolic finish. Finish is neither dry nor cloying.

O: Another great showing from Maine Beer Company.

1 pt .9 fl oz. bottled poured into a Spiegelau glass. Bottled on 10/8. Consumed on 10/21.

A - Brown in color with a tan creamy head. Gentle pour yielded 1-2 finger head. Lot of carbonation. Created irregular lacing as liquid receded.

S - White grapefruit, lime, and black tea.

T - Closely matched smell again with white grapefruit and black tea. Flavor profile not overly complex, but did not need to be. Very pleasant. Light malt backbone with some lasting bitterness.

M - Lot of carbonation, but very fitting with grapefruit taste. Lightly bodied and easy to drink. Crisp and refreshing.

O - A very pleasant experience and not at all what I was expecting. This beer is too easy to drink and very refreshing. The citrus presentation is nicely balanced with a black tea bitterness. I would gladly buy this again... would be awesome on a warm summer day. Loved it.

Bottle date of December 23, 2012 and many warnings to be sure to consume it fresh. OK. I got the message!

Appearance is deceiving since the taste and mouthfeel were much more impressive and exceeded my already high expectations.

It's expensive for what you get. They donate some of their profits to the sperm whale society or something like that, but it's well worth the occasional splurge.

If you like Nugget Nectar, this is 0.5 points better overall in my view.

Cheers to angrybabboon for sending me this. Bottling date is "02/20/13" at the time of consumption. In other words, old! But whatever. It does say to consume this no later than 90 days after bottling, so lets see how this has held up. Poured into a tulip glass from a 500ml bottle.

Pours a slightly cloudy, reddish color with a deep amber tone away from the light, as well as 5 fingers worth of head. Everything is really frothy and sticky, to the point of leaving lacing everywhere on the glass, as well as dense bubbles behind. Not too many bubbles in the liquid itself, but the enormous head makes up for it. Even after it settles down, it leaves behind a half finger that never clears up. Bless the bottle conditioning here - while not pretty, it makes this seem like an awesome homebrew of sorts. Here's hoping it tastes as good too.

Definitely showing signs of aging on the aroma, but for what it is, it's not bad by any means. There's an initial burst of alcohol soaked pine needles, dried citrus, tamarind, and candied vibe overall that quickly melds into extremely earthy malts, toasted biscuits, a smidgen of caramel, and lots of honey (with hemp) at the finish. Fantastic stuff - really lively and super flavorful, with enough bitterness, earthiness, and sweetness to balance things out. Unlike any red ale I've ever had to date. The hop profile alone transcends the style.

The flavor is actually even more complex and packed with flavor than the aroma is, somehow. At first you get an immediate rush of red, dark fruits (slight cherries, maybe, although not very distinguishable), but they soon morph into the citrus profile, and then dank (and I mean DANK) earthy grainy and malty characters. Extremely tannic - it's almost as if the residue from the hops and cracked grains are floating in this thing. Ends dry and slightly bittered, with some syrup, and then gradually descends in a refreshing way, without leaving behind too much astringency. A little bit of alcohol reveals itself at the finish, but the bready and hoppy sensations of the beer leave the mouth smacking for more. Very good stuff.

This reminds me of an excellent homebrew, in many ways, and what's even better is that it reminds me of my own English IPA homebrew I did a while back! This is superior in many ways, but how a mass produced beer like this one can contain so many of the fresh, tannic aspects of homemade beers of this kind remains a mystery to me. Very flavorful, and never too heavy. This is an ode to bottle conditioning, and I hope more American breweries will continue to follow it. You can tell a lot of love and care went into this. For those of you bored with the American amber style, give this a shot. It's great.

Pours brown in color, slightly hazy and deep red hues. Head is thin about half a finger off-white almost pink. Head also retains nicely and leaves a fair amount of lacing.

Smells very nicely balanced. Grainy husky malt aromas work nicely with aromas of sweet maple and mildly nutty malt. Malt plays nicely with fresh lightly fruitier hops that have aromas of mango Papaya and hints of grapefruit.

Taste is great. Malt is forward and has some light grainy and toffee flavors before a slight fruity and predominately piney hoppy mild bitterness persists through the midsection. Light floral notes finish on the exhale.

Mouthfeel is good. Moderate to high carbonation is cut by a good amount of hop oils and resin and malty stickiness. Nice balance keeps this highly drinkable with a good body.

Pours dark brown and can pick up some hoppy smell. Nothing to remarkable for the sight and smell. The taste is very smooth with an ok hoppy presence which for this beer fits well. It's more of a light hop upfront and a very smooth finish kind of sweet finish. Found myself guzzling it down always ready for another sip. Overall, another impressive beer from Maine Beer Company. This is definitely a beer to share with friends, wish it came in a six pack.

16.9 oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a dark amber with some red around the edges. Fairly heavy carbonation and a big cream head. Moderate lacing.

Aroma: This beer has a piny, buttery, biscuity, grassy smell. It's appealing for sure. Very aromatic.

Taste: Raisins and dark fruit dominate the taste of this beer, which also has a booze kick and hefty malt presence. There's also biscuit, grass and apricot. Some mild figs, too, and some noticeable citrus.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer, which is a good depth for this beer, because a heavier body would make it a little too "big." It's reasonably dense, but approachable.

Overall: Sip it, savor it, and enjoy it. Another great beer from MBC, everyone's favorite simple-label-loving brewery. You really don't need to go nuts on bottle designs when your beer is this well crafted. It strikes me as kind of an IPA/amber hybrid, and will appeal to fans of either.

This finally made it to MA, yay!

Creamy almost 1 finger head gasses slowly with lacing over darker molasses brown color.

Nose of fresh earthy and floral hops, some dark earthy malts, bit of fluffy dark malts, touch of roast.

Taste starts rich and creamy dark malts, bit of fluffy roast and almost chewy nougat, toffee, earthy and slight nutty malts, earthy and floral hops, light spicy, fresh hops, not too bitter, light fruit hops as well. Finish gets a bit more bitter, with a nice lingering hop character, light toffee, roast, and earthy malts.

Mouth is med to a bit heavier bodied with good carb.

Drink is great, a nice hop character not too bitter, the dark malts add a nice flavor without too much body or syrupy flavor. Very well balanced, tasty.

This classy looking 500 mL bottle was received in trade with umfskibum. Thanks Josh. It was bottled on 1/27/11. I popped the cap and poured the bottle into a goblet. An aggressive pour yields about 2½ fingers of foamy khaki head. Retention is excellent. A lot of sticky lacing lines the glass. The beer is a very dark amber tint, darker even than most brown ales.

The aroma is giving off a lot of citrus hops. Tangerine and grapefruit come to mind. The sweet smell of caramel wafts through the nose. I'm detecting rye grain in the aroma which is unexpected and enticing. This is different than any amber ale I've smelled.

The taste is bitter, fruity and clean. Grapefruit bitterness strikes first and maintains a presence through the entire flavor profile and aftertaste. A sweet honey-like fruitiness follows and blends nicely with some earthy grain flavors. Alcohol is noticed on the back end but I would not have otherwise guessed that this was a 7.2% ABV beer. Persistent bitterness lingers in the mouth long after the swallow. It is indeed a very full flavored amber.

Zoe is medium bodied with little carbonation. It feels good in the mouth though not outstanding. However, the style has never knocked my socks off in the mouthfeel department and this has the best feel of any amber I've sampled.

I have mixed feelings about this beer as a whole. I have never cared much for amber ale as a style, but I do have to give Maine Beer Company props for creating a beer that is much better than any other amber I've come across. It is very flavorful; it looks and smells great, and it feels fine in the mouth. 7.2% ABV tells me that I'll probably be done with this after one 500mL bottle. Although this isn't my thing, it is very well executed. I could wholeheartedly recommend Zoe to the hophead who needs a change of pace from a constant diet of IPAs.

Dark brown pour. Even though this classified as an amber/red there really isn't a hint of that color in its appearance. Strong head and good lacing on the glass. Hoppy aroma with some chocolate malt. Taste is started and finished with malt with hops appearing somewhere in the middle to end. Lots of layering and well done beer.

Zoe pours a clear, dark brown color with a two-finger stiff, frothy off white head on top. The foam dissolves slowly leaving behind lines and spots of lace on the glass.

The strong, hoppy aroma has lots of orange citrus and pine. As the beer warms some caramel malt notes become present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is slick on the palate, slightly oily with a mild carbonated fizz. The flavor begins hoppy with notes of orange citrus and pine with a hint of pepper. In the middle amber and caramel malt plus of touch of toast move in. Some metallic notes are in there too. It finishes dry with a bitter grassy hop flavor. Once gone the orange citrus notes linger on the palate.

This is a very tasty, easy drinking beer. The body seems a bit light to me and with over 7% abv this one is a sipper. I'm hoping this beer will soon be distributed in Mass.

500ml bottle (bottled on 1/14/11) poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours an incredibly dark amber color...actually more of a brown color that is a touch on the muddy side in appearance. Three fingers of dark khacki colored foam with amazing density sits atop the beer for a long, long time. An even sheet of lace covors almost 100% of the glass above the liquid level - quite impressive.

S - Wow...hops! Thick aromas of citrus steadily rise from the glass - packed with grapefruit mainly. Some wonderful pine joins the mix. Really great and intense hops. Along with the hops is some earthy and roasty malt character. Very mild but still noticeable boozy alcohol aromas and a dusting of chocolate to round things out.

T - Crisp hoppy bitterness with some roasted malt that gives a bit of a burnt bitterness and blends in with the hops. Sugary and a bit of caramelized sugar sweetness up front. Lots of hops in the middle with loads of grassy and citrus flavors - oranges and white grapefruit and some pineapple too.

M - A touch on the heavier side of medium bodied. Carbonation is full and assertive. Hop bitterness and earthy roasted malt flavors throughout and linger into the aftertaste. Hard to criticize, but perhaps a touch too far on the heavy side for me in this style.

D - This is an excellent beer. I had heard quite a bit about this one and was definitely excited to give it a try. Definitely lived up to the hype and my expectations. Looking forward to having more of these and trying some of the brewery's other offerings in the near future. A bit heavy to be extremely drinkable, especially in warmer weather...full of flavor and really good beer - probably a couple in a session is enough though.

We pop the top on this smiling brew and pour a rich, ruby colored brew. It holds a majestic two and a half finger head of stoic tan bubbles, showing excellent retention. Once this eventually recedes, a thick, single sheet of lacing coats the glass circumferentially. There is a chill haze, but no sediment to speak of, while carbonation appears slow and light. The aroma is wonderfully fresh with lemon rind and flesh, vanilla pod, and wild, earthy lavender. The malts are full of caramel and roast, and exhibit an almost stouty, coffee depth. The hops are equally as fresh and robust, showing nectary florals and big grapefruit citrics. Toffee sweetness and hop stem sourness come with warmth. Our first impression is that the beer remains fresh and light, while retaining robustness of flavoring. As we sip into it, the flavoring opens with caramel and pale malts mixing with a fresh, lemony, grapefruity citric hop character. Very cleansing and balanced to the palate. The middle moves forward with more of those hops, which sour a bit, along with light booziness, more floral and soapy hop varietals. These really take center stage, allowing for less of the malty background to shine through. The finish shows cane and lemon sugars to cut the sourness of the hops, and the residual souring of the paler grains in the mix. Grape skin, warming peppery booze, and yeast round the final flavor out. The aftertaste breathes of freshly cut lemongrass, metallic yeast, bright citric hops, pale and muddy malts, mineral, and souring blackberry fruitiness. The body is medium, and the carbonation is medium. There is an initially thick coating around the mouth, with hearty smack, slurp, cream, and froth to each sip. Eventually, this dries the palate, leaving room for a quick pucker once all flavoring has left the mouth. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks easily.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the soft, inclusive nose, and variety of hops throughout both the aroma and the flavoring. This beer is an affirmation of why we love American ambers and reds so much. There is such variability to the style, with room for such robust hops, and playfully balancing malts and spice. Not only is this a fantastic beer, but the story on the back of the bottle is one of the cutest thoughts we’ve ever heard to the concept and conception of a beer.

S: Citrusy hops with grapefruit standing out the most, some faint roasted malt in the background.

T: Really delicious stuff. Dryer and hopper than I'm used to in an amber, but also better. A good hot of grapefruit hops right away followed by a complex middle with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, tangerine rind and toffee with a dry and piny finish. Really tasty.

Appearance - Poured into pint glass, insane 3 finger head off the bat without pouring vigorously, cloudy dark brown amber, the color of Grade B maple syrup. Nice retention of the head which covered the beer to the bottom (even sipping slowly) but minimal to average lacing.

Smell- Malty, slight fresh tobacco, woody hops, and something that reminds me of a dog but not as bad as that sounds.

Taste- sweet malt and woody hops, then into a chocolate/coffee roasted malt character followed by fruit and esters. Pleasantly bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Very well balanced. Carbonated but not soda, creamy but not cloying.

Overall- A great beer, quite expensive and not the best for a session, but a must have. I can't think of a much better looking beer, and the taste is up there with my favorites.
