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.

Pale amber pour with a tight sticky white head. The aroma is pretty sweet. Lots of fresh Munich toastiness along with some warming ethanol as well. There is a little bit of light plumminess that isn’t typical for this style. Softly chewy with a touch of light sweetness. Nice - if a little strong. There’s a bit of soft almost estery flavour, but it’s not entirely lagery

2012-04-04. Hazy orange amber body, large off-white head fades a bit. Modest aroma, sweet caramel, light alcohol and modest cereal character to the grains. Flavour is similar, sweet sugars and caramel touches, dry bitterness in the finish has a light grainy character. Average palate. It feels like a sweet Belgian crossed with a strong European lager. The alcohol is not overly strong but is a bit distracting somehow. Reminds me of another beer that I can’t place. Okay. Can from the LCBO

DuffMan (6548) - 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.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 14, 2012
Can 473 ml
Aroma slight tartness, dusty malts with some alcohol warmth.
Appearance clear amber with visible frisky carbonation. Medium light top. 3-.
Flavor and Palate : malty front , medium bodied. Low hop elements, flat mid. Some alcoholic notes ending. Forgettable.

blankboy (5972) - 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

TaktikMTL (5655) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Canette de 473 ml achetée chez The Beer Store (Hawkesbury, ONT) au coût de 2,25$. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel avec une pointe de céréale. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #5618)

[4368-20120404] 473mL can. Maple caramel sweet malt aroma. Hazy, dark orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Bitter lemon zest toasted cardboard flavour has a lingering light sweet maple note. Medium body. Not for me. (6/4/6/3/10) 2.9

presario (4596) - 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.

pours relatively clear pale golden orange with a nice white head, good retention, some lacing. some toastiness and relatively dry caramel, fresh cereals and oranges, grassy-peppery hops, warming alcohol, hint of sweetness. average carbonation - prickly, medium body, decent grassy-citrusy finish. ok.

reebtogi (4100) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
473ml can pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that settles down to some very thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some kind of grassy hops. Taste is some earthy and metallic hop bitterness with a light caramel malt sweetness and some woodiness. The metallic notes kind of knocked a few points off this one for me.
