Pours clear, light amber with a minimal tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, slight caramel, slight fruity esters. Malty up front, with some caramel and toast, surprisingly clean finish with a touch of hops. Medium body. Some smoke and/or wood in the finish. Really quite nice!

bottle. Poured clear deep amber with no head. Very subdued aroma, malty with notes of brown sugar. Thick but creamy mouthfeel, medium body with just a touch dry finish. Flavour is sweet and bready, caramel malt with a roasted note. A really nice session.

Pours iced tea dark with a bubbly cap that fades. A tasty beer that’s complex & fun. Taste is a little hard on the brown sugar & a little soft on the bitterness. Another winner from south river.

What a strange little brewery-- their website says they make three different beers, but Ratebeer lists only one. This poured a dusky gold with a very foamy thick off white crown. Muted aroma of bready malts with a slightly brothy quality. Sweet caramel flavour, pretty simple really. Not sure what they were striving for here, but this plays as a pretty unremarkable amber ale.

Light brown pour with lots of lacy head. Don’t really smell much off this one. Nice and warm. Very smooth. Creamy. I haven’t had a beer this creamy is nice Cafferys. A touch of hops, some sweet malts and caramel. Nice.

A very nice beer. Not great, but not bad either. I like Scottish ales, but this one is a little lighter and less alcohol than I usually like. But still good.

This ale poured a deep amber colour with a soapy, bright white head. No lacing. Scents include malt, caramel, toast and dough. First sip was very nice and malty with flavours of caramel, toast and cereal most prodominant. Finish is malty with caramel and toast flavours lingering with a light bitterness.
