COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A coppery red caramel malt lies beneath a forceful hop presence in both bitterness and aroma. Our spring seasonal ale is made with Mt. Hood hops grown organically on our own farm.

Draft - Bitter toasted malts. Clear amber with a rich beige head. Light malts and bread with a nice balanced bitterness, finishing with a bit of toffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1494) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
On tap. Pours a dark brown with light head. Aromas of roasted malt, nuts, and dry cardboard. Similar flavors, closer to a nut brown ale. Dry. Nothing to write home about.

stantheman (566) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
On tap at Hops in New West. Beautiful dark ruby color. Mild, malty, with a bit of a hop note. Mild and well balanced. Not sweet, rather dry. Very pleasant, but not great.

CapFlu (4364) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2012
(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.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2010
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.

Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2006
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.
