Mr. Jamie Mistry, Amsterdam Brewmaster, has brewed a beer with the perfect balance. Carefully combining the boldness of a pale ale with the smoothness of an easy drinking lager to create a Deluxe Amber Beer we call Big Wheel. Ingredients: Brewed with a blend of imported Pale and Crystal malts for a bright Amber colour and sweet malt character. Dry hopped with a blend of UK hops to achieve a perfect balance of rounded malt and hop taste. Taste Profile: A full bodied robust taste that is perfectly balanced. Not too bitter or heavy. Initial malt and hop aromas in the nose balanced by roasted male and caramel flavours. Not overpowering with a slightly crisp finish.

Can, Mulmur, ON, Canada via LCBO. Hazy amber. Thick head. Caramel and citrus hops with some autumn spice. Mellow, sweet then sharp citrus hops finish it out. Pretty standard.

Kauge (943) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2015
Tap at the Fox and the Fiddle in Toronto. Clear, darkish golden / amber with a well-retaining light beige head. Pretty nice and nutty on the nose with hints of red berries and caramel, grassy hops. Flavour’s sweetish, nutty, jammy, with a herbal, grassy finish. Dryish mouthfeel, active carbonation, medium body. A pretty nice one to down pint after pint in good company.

ljthiessen (903) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Can. Slightly cloudy Amber pour without much head. Comes off more like a Vienna lager than an amber, pretty sweet and light without much body or hops to speak of. Pretty unremarkable.

KoNrRiI (870) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2015
0.591 tap. Amber color, no head. Aroma of toasted grains, pale malts, a bit of alcohol. Taste is simple: grains, hay, malt liquor. Light body, thin texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is the only part of the beer that isn’t alcoholic. Overall quite a mediocre beer.

Bendrixian (1370) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
Clear amber pour. I find the aroma skunky and grainy. Not enjoyable. Medium body fast profile. A light sweet malty note. Not very good.

Tranquillity (1584) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2015
Red body, small white head. Swampy aroma, not much taste either. The finish has some kick compared to many lagers though.

HippyHop (531) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Pour is dark gold with a creamy off-white cap. Nose is caramel, roasted grain and floral hops. Taste is slightly sweet/sour/bitter without being any in particular. Slightly mineral. Decent amber with a bit of floral hop presence.

jkwood04 (4963) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 18, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours amber/golden with a white head. Aroma of a nice floral hoppiness, malts that don’t overpower the beer, and some dough. Flavor a nice blend of everything. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

Yamato (39) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2015
At a pub on the College street. Malty, and hoppy at the same time. Citrus. Mineral. Feels strong.
