Nice big creamy head and a clear amber body. Soft hops and malt aroma. Flavour is slight nuttiness, sweet malts, with a medium hoppy finish. This is a good one.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2007 On Tap at the castle. Tapped a deep clear amber color with a decent sticky off-white cap that lasts and laces the glass Aromas of roast toffee, some carmel over dry hay and some citrus and ale-like fruity tones. Up front a decent malt spine is balanced with pine-citrus hopping...mid palate the hopping gets bitter and dries up the drink leading to a clean dry bitter finish. This is the bitter amber that Wellington never brewed.

500 ml bottle - thanks clint!! Clear amber with trace white head; caramel, dry malt and honey; dry with some sweet malt and fruit; slight twang from the fruit I guess; something a little off, but can’t put my finger on 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.

lesifflebiere (1521) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Bière cuivrée à la mousse rare, au nez sucré de raisins et de malts caramel ; assez mince, et limpide. La bouche est sucrée dans les mêmes tons, avec un effet de boisé qui persiste longtemps, avec des noisettes en finale. Un genre de rousse qui a l’avantage de son originalité et du certain tranchant de ses houblons, mais qui lasse assez vite avec ses notes parfois bizarres. Correcte, fort acceptable même, mais loin d’un grand cru.

500 ml bottle. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is very malty with caramel, roast and a hint of nuts & cereal but there is a bit of floral hops as well. On the palate it is medium bodied, fairly roasty bitter but smooth and a tad watery for me. Meh, wouldn’t buy this one again.
