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 was able to enjoy this beer for the first time this week in Pittsburgh @ Houghh’s, a great local craft account. A very well balanced brew with an excellent choice of both Hops and Malts. My hat off to the 2 brewmasters. Not too bitter just right with dinner or to enjoy while watching the Steelers path to another Super Bowl

This brew was very disappointing. Bland, boring, and underachieving. My fist shall from hop city, maybe my last.

Cannette 500ml donnée par Olivier de retour de Sandbanks. Rousse aux reflets blonds, un col généreux de grosses bulles à l’apparence crémeuses qui disparaît rapidement. Mince, croustillante et légèrement amère en bouche, elle un beau goût de malt caramélisé et une finale sucrée légèrement houblonnée. Agréable, une bonne bière de tous les jours.

I had this beer on tap at the Green Turtle in Aberdeen, MD. A complex amber lager with a roasted, caramel flavor and medium bitterness. A slight Hop aftertaste and medium body. A roasted type aroma kind of earthy. The head was very white and the color was copper/orange. Great with the amazing burgers that were served! A sessionable craft with the coolest tap marker; a Squirrel holding a Hop Cone! Serving type: on-tap

A well-balanced brew! Great companion with comfort foods (e.g. roast beef, barbeque pork, etc.), and it quaffs very well just on its own.

This beer is a perfect balance of flavour and drinkability. The bitterness is a perfect amount with caramel malts to allow for a smooth finish. This is a great beer to have with dinner.

Barking Squirrel is a great amber lager from Ontario. It has an awesome rich burnt orange/ amber color with an incredible head. The two row malt they use allows the beer to keep its perfect head throughout the entire beer which I can very much appreciate. It uses three of the four noble hops so I can appreciate that as well since it really amps up the flavor of the amber lager. It sits at 24 BU’s so it has a nice little kick but goes down so nicely. It has a full mouth and it has a nice roasted aroma. The mouth has a nice roasted caramel flavor with a medium body and a bit of tartness. I loved this beer.

Carbonated brownish amber body, no head. Faint hoppy and toasted bread aroma. Full pleasant toasted malt flavor, hops flavor is in the forefront like an IPA. mouthfeel is rich and balanced, not much aftertaste.

Sampled at Flatlanders BF in Winnipeg. With a name like Hop City it would have been nice to experience more hop flavours. Oh well. Another very mediocre Canadian lager.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Orange colour. Slight malt aroma. Slight hoppy taste, but really quite dull overall. Boring. An alright session beer, but nothing interesting.
