2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light copper colour with micro-head but no lacing. There is an a little more than average carbonation. The taste is caramel malts mixed with a grassiness and and tiny bit of hops hops. There is also a bit of a pear juice fruitiness. The beer finishes with a malty sweet after taste with a touch of bitterness. Unique but thin and boring.

On tap at the Amsterdam Brewhouse, on the Toronto waterfront. Bright amber with a ring of white head; rather thin in the mouth with some sweet malts and a dry finish with some spicy English hops.

Orange and light hazel hue on this Toronto pup. T’is alright, nothing too offensive from this company. They’re not reinventing the wheel, big or small, but this caramel malt and piney and citrus hopped chap is okay in my books. I’d like to try more of their brews.

Bottle. I am surprised the rating is so low on this beer. I remember it as one of my more favourite amber ales. It has a taste of toffee roasty nuts, with just a little bit of hoppyness. It finishes with a nice medium bitterness, nothing to overwhelming, just the right amount. A good beer from a bigger brewer.

Draft. Clear amber pour, thin white head that doesn’t last long. Did not like this beer, possibly something off. Some malt but also cardboard and some almost metallic tastes. May try this again sometime to see if it was just an issue with the establishment where i tried it.

"Clear amber appearance, mild lacing. Floral and herbs aroma. A bit watery mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Flavour: a bit hoppy, sweet, citrus notes, lemon, malts. Not too bad. Ok beer once in a while."

Pours with a slight head. Amber in the glass. Mild nose with a whiff of hops. Hops leave create a bit of a bite but balanced with the malt. Easy drinking.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. As advertised, a solid amber appearance. Aromas of wet grain, average malt, wet stone and unpeeled orange. Nice, gritty palate. Excellent balance between bitter and malt elements. Low flavour profile bends towards gravel and endive. Pretty nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lightly hazy copper with a small white head and no lace. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch and grassy hops. Taste is toffee, grass, toast, sweet pale malts and a crisp bitterness on the finish. Decent amber ale that’s easy to drink but could use a better balance.
