650ml bottle (2012 version) pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing as it settles. Aroma is light fruits and grains with some spicy notes. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a spicy hop bitterness. Cleaning up I found some old notes on this one.

On tap at duche central(mkt). Pours a clear amber colour with small white head that thins out quite quickly but leaves some lace. Aromas of rye, spice, floral hops and some sweetness. Flavours of citrus, spice, medium bitterness, caramel sweetness. Interesting and tasy beer

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 2012 Unity Brew brewed at Brewsters(Belgian Style IPA). Pours a clear amber color with a white ring that leaves lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of vanilla, nutmeg, floral hops and rye malt. Taste is very spicy and floral up front with some toffee & then a nice bitterness on the finish. Great session ale.

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
Draft - Sweet, spicy and rye and some flowery hops. Amber thin head and clear. Sweet hops up front, grains, resin and some mild bitterness. A light and decent sessionable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
On tap. Clear orange gold. Minimal cap. Smells of dusty straw bitterness. Great bitter taste. Might be because of my palette right now. Notes of citrus, toffee. But really, there's a heavy bitterness to this. Truly surprising amber.

gramity (1462) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2011
Unity Brew 2010 pours a deep copper color with a thick tan head. Retention was moderate and produced a large amount of lacing. The aroma is predominantly of caramel and lots of hops. There is also a bit of fruity notes in it - dark fruit the malts are also apparent but overpowered by the other notes. There is definitely a nutty aspect to the smell. The taste is sweet and malty and there is something that makes me want to say "dark fruits" here but I’m not sure that is exactly what it is. There is hint of citrus and spices present. You can taste something nutty - I say hazelnuts there. Overall the taste is great but it is difficult to pinpoint which may be a result of the collaborative effort on the recipe. Tough to pigeonhole this one but easy to enjoy it. It is medium bodied and light to medium carbonation. It has a smooth feel going down and is very easy to drink. Tastes quite fresh. I was so busy sipping it to try and isolate the flavors that it was gone in no time.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear red/amber, medium off-white head, lacing is solid or better. Nose is buttery (not a good sign), fresh rank Cascadey hops (a VERY good sign), some mixed toffee/fruity/almost smoky malt nots, though no roasted notes... Flavours are buttery, some caramel, fruit, nice bitterness. Not really digging this... Too much butter.... With time, this shows less butter, more spicy hop bitterness, but I wouldn’t buy this again. I love the idea, and I REALLY want to like this, but my mouth feels like it just got coated in margarine, and I can’t like that...

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle purchases on 01/04/2010. Colour is dark orange, low-medium head. Nose: Yeasty forefront with splashes of over-ripe cantaloupe, Florida orange, cumin & slight pine. Taste: ligth sweet, medium bitter, medium sour. Wood, dust, hoppy evidence (more-so then the nose). Rather monotone. At least it was purchased for a good cause...

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2010
Bomber from Presario. A hoppy fuggles beer. A light reddish colour and cloudy. Soapy head. Surprisingly less than average mouthfeel from so many brewers chipping in. Big malt backbase. Good drinkability.

thb (707) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2010
Pours clear copper.ruby with solid head with nice retention. Enticing aromas of grapefruit/resin balanced with some soft caramel. I was a little worried when I saw this was an amber ale - so much potential for bland, but this is really anything but. Bright fresh hoppy aromas penetrate throughout the sip - the grapefruit/resin again but more of a floral note comes in. Malt character is principally caramel, but there’s a bit of biscuit in there. Basically, this hits the hop/malt balance spot on.
