COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle; Regular.

A full bodied, aromatic Red Rye ale brewed with malted barley, the addition of 20% Rye to the recipe, and with Chinook, Columbus and Simcoe hops. We think the Rye in the recipe gives some dryness and spice, and the hops add a dash of pine and passion fruit, but see what you think, everyone’s taste buds are different. This is an incredibly flavoursome Red Ale, full of lots of interesting tastes and aromas.

AWS9 (549) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle. Dark tree sap pour, frothy receding head. Heavy spruce and malt aroma - quite forest like, keeping with the sap theme... Spice, touch of citrus, a bit rum-y. Prominent malt backing. Fairly plain, clean mouthfeel. Ambers have never been a favourite of mine, but this seems to hit the right notes for what you’d be aiming for.
