Very nicely hopped amber. Pours dark amber without much head or lacing. Some sharp grapefruit hops on head here with a good malt base. Almost tastes more like a good session pale ale. Tap at pattys.

Gotta love a pub with great variety on tap right next to the movie theatre! Had time to kill, so why not try new brew at Quinn’s Ale House. This one got to me with barely any head. Nice red/amber colour, weak lacing. Has a bit of a bitter aftertaste, not much mouthfeel. Hints of citrus in taste. Hops are somewhat undistinctive (If an amber is categorized as pale, which I’m sure it is). Average for me.

BreWedge (335) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
On tap @ Whalesbone Ottawa. Pours a very light amber with a small white head. Aromas are biscuit, caramel, honey, and butter (diacetyl?). Taste was sweet caramel malts nicely balanced by a moderate biscuity bitterness. Nice bite from the carbonation and a slightly bitter but short-lived finish. I'm going to buck the trend here and give this beer high marks. This is admittedly skewed by my personal tastes that favor any beer that manages to get a nice balance between biscuity bitterness and mildly sweet malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

I had this beer at Patty’s Pub. I was wondering how it compared to the original Hart Amber Ale. This beer is actually pretty good! Pours a gorgeous clear amber with a thick frothy head. The aroma is of cereals, oats, spices, and some doughy malts. The flavour is packed with intense crisp carbonation, followed by some scotch, corn, sweet malts, fresh bitterness, and a smooth finish. Overall a pretty good brew, and remeiniscant of the original Hart brew.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
Draught at Paddy’s, Ottawa, August 18. Pours a clear deep and bubbly orange-amber with a small long-lasting creamy white head. Aroma has a good amount of hops (for the style, and more then I expected), caramel/bready malt and grain -- a touch buttery. Flavour of caramel malt, again a bit buttery (diacetyl?), light hops and an average bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Not a huge fan of the style but this was slightly better then I expected, I had no problem drinking it.

asheft (2553) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
[on tap at Back Lane Cafe] Potent caramel and diacetyl butterscotch in the nose. Clear light amber appearance under a lacy, white top. Flavour is strangely salty up front, followed by nice caramel and diacetyl, but not quite held up by hops bitterness. Clearly not an American Amber, for lack of hops aroma and flavour, but a nice (Ringwood?) English take on an amber, if a bit balanced on the sweet side. Medium body, low carbonation.

Metalchopz (2405) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
Sampled at Quinn’s Ale House in Ottawa, Ontario. Pours a golden-amber colour with a small white cap and some lacing. Caramel nose with some light fruity aromas. The mouthfeel is your typical wetness. Mild sweetness at first and then, mild bitterness for the finish. Refreshing amber ale with a little more taste than standard ones of this style.
