COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Waterloo Amber is brewed with hops from the renown Hallertau region in Bavaria. This region is known for continuously culturing their hops since the 8th century AD and is one of the oldest hop growing regions in the world. Brewed with all natural spring water and a special blend of five distinct malts – Canada two row malted barley, two types of roasted malt, rye malt and a special distiller’s malt giving this amber its perfect whiskey color. We age this beer slowly with northern white oak, delivering the same subtle caramel notes and spicy aromas that are often found in many fine whiskeys allowing this premium brew to remain perfectly balanced from beginning to end.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
473mL Can. Copper amber pour with an unending foam (probably due to the tallboy can) Aroma is earthy, sweet malts and grains. Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Taste is fairly subdued maltiness with an earthy hoppy kick that dries out the finish with a bitter note

Poured from can into solo cup, but it was all there was. Amber colour, frothy head, aromas of caramel, straw, flavours of barley, roasted malt. It was ok v ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Can, no BBD so I’m not sure of freshness. Light amber or deep golden, depending on your viewpoint. Aroma is sweet grains, much like a typical Canadian lager. The flavours here are much the same: sweet grains, maybe awhiff of ripe berry fruit, but that is swept away by an annoying metallic note in the finish. Disappointing.

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Can. Clear dark golden pour, medium off white head. Mild aroma with soft biscuit and caramel notes. Mild caramel presence with graininess and slight diacetyl.Thin, crisp body with soft caramel and buttery finish. Slight grassy hops presence, but this is surprisngly malt heavy... heavy being a relative term, of course.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
Can [473ml]. Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma of diacetyl, caramel malt, grassy hops, toffee and grain. Sweet flavour of honey, caramel malt, grain, some alcohol and a light, dry, bitter finish. Average bodied. Not really digging this at all, too sweet and a bit of a mess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
[can--thanks probstblueribbon!] Creamy aroma with lots of brown sugar malt, lemon notes, and some herbal and slightly grassy hops. Almost clear amber under a persistent quite cover and ring. Sweet malty brown sugar flavour with nutty and faint lemon accents. Bitterness is a bit subdued and the finish is not quite dry. The latter would provide a nice balance to this beer. Medium body, moderate carbonation, nutty and faintly sour finish.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2013
473 ml can. Pours golden yellow with a decent sized white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts, caramel, and grains and a bit of sour funk. Decent.

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
473 mL Can. Deep gold body with a one-finger foamy off white head settling to a tenacious film leaving foamy ribs as it is sipped. A fresh fine pastries is the first part of the aroma that titillates the beer taster before noticing the light sweet malts and pungent earthy hops. Light sweet malts with a strong companion of medicinal herbs; intriguing yet put off with a fast-invading phenolic aftertaste, not bad but not that likeable. A long subtly minty finish. Sensational in all facets except Taste. Verdict: not graduated.

shaynsawchuk (425) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
473 mL can. Pours a medium amber with a moderate white head. Big butterscotchy nose with caramel, rye and a boozy bite. Sweet and medium full bodied with average carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Delightfully malty.
