a good bitter. broomstraw taste nicely bitter with a clean finish. there is a nice german bitter with a grapefruit hidden flavor that works quite well! good carbonation and creamy yet effervesent enough. malt and hop characters conspire adequately.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Pours a dark caramel color with a nice off white head. Smell at first is of mostly hops and a touch of caramel like sweetness. A very nice balanced smell. Taste is definitely more malty at first and overall tastes nice, and balanced. As it warms, the mild hop flavor dissipates somewhat and becomes more of a backdrop to the big caramel creamy taste. Definitely changes as it warms a bit. Overall a good rich amber.

I had two experiences with this beer - one where I poured too fast and it just had a huge head on it, and two when I did it right and it was chilled a little more. Drinking this beer with a large head and somewhat warm did not do much for me - too much carmel flavor, on the other hand out of the bottle and a little more chilled, the flavors blended nicely. Less carmely, and more hops flavor.

I was pretty drunk when i got to this bottle but was impressed by the robust flavor of the amber. Thick and rich with adequate carbonation. Wood tones throughout the malts and simple spice flavors on finish. Would like to try again...sober.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2007
Minimal head on dark amber. Dark woody caramel nose. Good woody flavour with a hint of vanilla that is not unwelcome. Solid beer. Hint of tobacco.

DuffMan (9018) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2007
Deep amber gold, thick cream coloured head. Aromas of toffee and a faint fruit quality, apricot perhaps. Rich caramel/toffee malt palate, sweet dates, and again a faint undefinable fruit note. Delicious.

ABUSEDGOAT (2538) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Hazy amber with a moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is citric, grapefruity hops with caramel backing. Medium bodied with a somewhat sweet finish and a good hop flavor. Great for the style, actually has character.
