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.

vadie (1225) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
Jaune/blanche brumeux avec une moyenne robe blanche. L’arôme du malt et d’épices terreux. En bouche il y a plein du corps, du malt terreux, des noix, et une amertume léger mais qui reste sur la palate.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2016
On tap at Darby’s, pours a deep dark mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out bready notes, some holiday spices and subtle dark fruitiness. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of holiday spices, especially nutmeg, along with subdued dark fruits and bready malt. Not my thing at all, but the balance and construction is decent. A little high on the carbonation. Meh.

Ferris (12101) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
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 (3022) - 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 (871) - 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 (5100) - 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 (18573) - 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 (15256) - 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.
