(Draft) Sampled at the 2011 Great Canadian Beer Festival on September 9, 2011. Fluffy, light brown head atop a brown body. Strong dirt and berry seed aroma. Some potent spice found in the palate was absent from the nose. Great white peppery tongue. Very likable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy dark amber to brown color; nice creamy head; sticky lace. The aroma is mild, with caramel, but also a bit fruity. Smooth mouthfeel; quite good caramel flavor, correct bitterness, and with the same interesting fruity touch (the yeast?). Pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hopped with Mt. Hood, Pacific Gem and another unknown variety. Hazy amber. Light earthy-caramelly character with hints of grassiness. Moderately bitter- juicy, lemony, with light breadcrusty, caramelly accent. Basic amber is a fairly well-constructed form. Quite dry, lots of bitterness.
