3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Gig’s - puts a copper-orange ale in the glass with a 2 finger puffy off white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is malt accentuated - bready, woody, some grassiness. Flavour has incredible balance between a great mixture of wheat and barley malts and some earthy-herbal hops. Finish is clean and dry with a hopbite at the end. Dont know what they were after here but this brew refereshes satisfies and drinks really well.

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly caramel notes, with some vanilla, and pine. Light bodied, and slightly watery with light caramel notes, faint resinous hops and bitterness from the wheat. Make me think watered down Brooklyn Lager. Not bad. Warm weather beer for sure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet fruit punch and malt. Taste starts off sweet, with pepper and fruit, then moves to a bitter hoppy finish. I can see why this is called an "Amber Ale" on ratebeer - it is more of an "Amber Ale brewed with wheat" than a "Wheat Ale that happens to be amber".

A decent beer even though there’s nothing to be carried away. Pours a clear amber colour with almost no head. Aroma of wheat, hops. Taste of wheat, a whole field of it.

Although a noble venture in their attempt it doesn’t quite come out as being a great beer. Short on aroma, a little biscuity and with mild citrus. Head diminishes rapidly, decent colour. Taste lacks the european wheat beers complexity, although it is a clean finishing beer with a nice amount of bittering.

Interesting beer. Uses wheat malt but is very much in a north American amber lager vein. Nice big white head to start, deep golden colour. Nose is cereal, light citrus and grassy floral hops. Nice snappy carbonation up front and through the middle, light medium body, bready flavour with some fruit in the rear. Very clean and crisp, I could very well imagine having a sixer at a BBQ, looking down my nose at the Bud Light Lime contingent....

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Poured a medium amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with average retention. Aroma of grainy wheat malt notes with some grassy floral hops. Taste is a mix between light dry caramel malt with some wheat notes and light residual sugar mix in with some grassy hops. Body is average with good carbonation. I’m not sure what the intent was but I really did not dog the mix between hops and fruity wheat malt and the caramel notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours clear golden with a creamy white head, some retention and lacing. breadied malts, some toastiness, floral-grassy-herbal-spicy light to medium hopping. hint of wheat and wheat acidity. average to soft carbonation, light body - oily, very nice herbal-peppery but also with a short but present citric bite finish. reminescence of german dortmunder/helles, or maybe pils, the american way? not sure where they were heading, but this brew is refreshing, balanced and nicely done.
