3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour pint at Tipsy Cow. Continuing with the cooler day amber trend that I thought of about 20 minutes ago. Being in the mood for an amber or brown is rare for me, so I’m going to take advantage of the opportunity. Mostly clear bronze pour with a lasting rocky head. Nutty malt aroma. Has a noticeable bitterness up front with a bold nutty malt constant. Heavier hop bitterness makes this interesting. Nutty malt aroma makes this inviting. Non-sweet finish makes this different. Overall an enjoyable beer here.

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.
