A bit cloudy.. Sweet candy aroma, not as bitter as I expected. A nice, hoppy beer, with a bitter aftertaste. Smooth, some creaminess in the palate. A medium body. delicious.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I tried this beer on May 5, 2011 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent brownish-red with a rocky tan cap that laced well. The aroma was sweet caramel malt, and weak floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is quite hoppy with a malt sweeetness in the middle - I was hoping for better.

500ml bottle purchased at the LCBO. Pours a reddish/ copper colour, white/ yellow head, sprinklings of lace here and there, good carbonation to boot. Aroma is carmalized malt and a dash of hops. Taste is malt, hop and a little smokiness as well. Real nice brew.

Quite nice, thought I was drinking an EPA, not an amber, Not terribly similar to any amber ales I have had. It has very grassy n’ earthy notes, it has a light hop aroma and taste, its colour is amber, overall pretty tasty stuff

Pours a rustic, burnt orange sorta colour with a short lived fizzy white head. The aroma is like a light roasty sorta smell at first, with some creamy sorta wurthers toffee notes, maybe some sherry?? The flavour has a very solid malt foundation for a sort of tangy hop house, if that makes any sense. No one thing really stands out to me, it’s all just very well rounded and balanced. A good session ale. Props grand river.

decent drinking amber ale, this brewery has a very similar malt profile in a lot of thier brews, which is a good one, nice biscuity aftertaste, but i feel like this is a smaller version of the jubilation almost. decent drinker, nice session brew for sure with a decent hop profile to it.

A great amber ale. Starts off caramelly-sweet like a british ale, but ends off with a nice bitter hop finish. Will definitely get this again.
