COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When your brewmaster comes up with a recipe as good as this one, you let him name the beer whatever he wants. Here’s what makes our recipe so darn good: a rich burnt orange colour, darker than most lagers, a smooth, medium body with a bold, but pleasant, hop taste, full of flavour, unlike your traditional ’cold-as-ice’ beers with no taste, made with only the best ingredients, including Canadian & English Malts, and German & Czech Hops.

I enjoyed Barking Squirrel I enjoyed it as it as a beer that went down smooth with no real aftertaste. I find that some beers drink heavy and leave you feeling bloated, with Barking Squiirel I did not experience that.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5136) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel-amber color with a large foamy orange-tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was skunky, tangy and somewhat sweet. The flavor was bitter and tangy with faint caramel, vague fruits and cardboard. Turns dry on the short cardboard finish. Medium body. Fairly awful.

What a intriguing name for such a cool new product! I tried it at a sampling at my local distributor. I tasted the caramel and coffee flavors while drinking it. The after taste was a nutty flavor. I found this beer to have mild hops and was extremely "drinkable." It will definitely be at my holiday parties. I feel that it is a beer that will satisfy even my pickiest guests.

Copper colour with a frothy white head and lace. Fruit, malt aroma. Sweet fruit flavour.

MattShizzle (544) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Free sample at distributor. Medium golden color, clear. Very clean aroma. OK. Decent flavor - fairly hoppy but not worth the price it sells for.

jeremytoni (3011) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2012
From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Light sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.

r464 (1950) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Malty aroma. Light, leading to a slight hops flavor in the finish. Hints of earthiness. Smooth, but unremarkable.

ben4321 (4260) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 11/4/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly light, some toasted lager malts, and caramel notes
Appearance: This one pours a clear caramel orange color with some spotty lacing
Flavor: The taste is clean and malty, not overly sweet, and has barley a hint of a hop presence
Palate: The body is fairly light, it drinks clean, has an average carbonation, and a short duration
Overall Impression: My first rating from Hop City. (I didn’t even realize I was buying Canadian, just assumed it was an American Micro I’d never heard of.) Anyway, it isn’t a bad beer, but I wasn’t super impressed either. Decent lager, but that’s about it. Eh...

Can, from LCBO
Hazy amber color with generous head, creamy; is there a widget in the can? Mild aroma of caramel and caramel. Round mouthfeel, some caramel flavor; ordinary bitterness. Simple.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Crisp golden pour fizzy body. Roasted caramel aroma with notes of fresh malts. Slightly hoppy but not overwhelming.
