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.

Papillon (381) - 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.

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.

bdettweiler (57) - KITCHENER, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
Pours golden amber with thick foamy head. Aroma is caramel, bread and fruity, herbal hops. Medium bodied with slightly more than average carbonation, Taste is bittersweet - bread, herbs and a touch of wood. The finish is pleasantly dry and lingering.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
Dark gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of heavy sweet malts, booze, and caramel. More sticky sweet malt in the mouth, along with berry fruit caramels, and whole wheat bread dough. Heavy bodied with a long finish in spite of the carbonation level. Seems like a simplistic overly sweet oktoberfest to me.

Eructoblaster (3222) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
Can - 473ml. Hazy amber body with a thin white frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with caramel hints. Taste carries maple and fruity notes. Ends with a moderately warming, bittersweet finish.

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
473 ml can from czar, thanks mate. Pours a hazy orangeish pale golden with a nice, resilient white head. Taste is caramel, woody, fresh vegetables, touch of fruit. Some cereals. Finish is herbal bitterness, well-balanced, not so strong. Dry cereal, sweet. Average body, average carbonation. Not the beer of the century, but good nonetheless.

Canette 473ml. De couleur ambrée-cuivrée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés, léger de maïs sucré et de miel avec des notes de houblon herbeux, de fruits (agrumes) et de biscuits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes huileuses. Notes fruitées (agrumes) accompagné d’un léger goût de légumes bouillis sucrés et de traces d’épices (poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt sucré et aux faibles notes rôties ainsi que des notes de miel et de biscuits. L’on retrouve également de faibles traces de pain et de maïs sucré. Parallèlement, des notes métalliques d’alcool sont présentes en arrière-goût durant toute la gorgée et une légère amertume de houblon herbeux vient de rajouter en toute fin de gorgée. Post-goût moyen et aux notes asséchantes, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales ainsi que des notes d’alcool métallique.

Copper pour. Copper taste. Sticky finish. Sugary malt backing. Ambers really aren’t my thing, but this seems to be a particularly poor example by my tastes.

presario (4756) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
Out of the can pours a rich foamy glass. Light scent of woody hops and a bit of mudied malt. Full bodied with lots of flavours. Vanilla and metallic do not come to mind so it rates higher than many Ambers. Kind of reminds me of Innis & Gunn so maybe tehy get something from the Oak. Could probably pound some while watching Leaf’s games. A bit of an alcohol candy bit in the finish.
