3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ brewpub. Light amber color with a white slick of foam. Aroma has some light toasted malt and caramel and the taste includes some malt sweetness and toasted notes with a slight touch of bitterness. Clean mouthfeel. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Boundary Bay, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of dry caramel malts, dry citrus hops and bready malt. Flavour is quite full bodied and "nourishing" for an amber, with caramel malts, a considerable citrus hop punch and bready notes. Again, full bodied for the style, packing a full flavour. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy amber color with creamy head. As Amber Ale, this one is better than the average, having some decent malt flavor and than decent hopping, moderately fruity (aroma and flavor), correctly bitter; balanced final.
Not complicated, but nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft - Very aromatic sweet malts and perfume hops. Cloudy amber with minimal head. Tastes like a hopped amber, caramel and pine, but a bit on the too sweet side. Not bad and I would happily drink this, but there are much better versions out there.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft: Poured a reddish brown with an off white colored head. The aroma was light and almost nonexistent, not unpleasant just lacking. Taste is a mix of malts and yet balanced with some light hop.

From tap at Taphouse Grill as Dry-Hopped Amber. Pours clear and golden orange with a small, creamy and white head. Aroma is fruity, light toasted malty. Smooth malty, caramelish and sweet. Crisp fruity and light bitter finish.

Deeper amber coloring with nice off white head. Earthy hop aroma with a woodsy spice. Thin mouthfeel with low carbonation. Moderate hop spiciness with residual caramel sweetness. Finish is light.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub in Bellingham. Amber in the glass, decent head and mild carbonation. Aroma is elusive and understated. Taste is much better with some woody and citrus hops working together well. Malt is well worked and offers good counter-point. Despite not being a big amber fan I quite liked this one.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber’s are not my usual style, but this is exceptional. The flavor profile is well balanced and finishes with a hint of dryness. Not too sweet, just right.
