Well, I ain’t even gonna be shy about it, I loved this beer. It has a pretty shitty rating but I loved it. I am still curious as to why ’Red Ale" is not a style and must be classified as an Amber when it clearly stands apart. Firstly, this brew is a pretty redhead, a rusted gold with a long lasting head. A wonderful bouquet of burnt toffee, barnyard, fresh bread and buckwheat honey awaits the nose. It is quite sweet and very malty, exactly how I like my reds unless they claim to be Red IPAs or some such hoppy style. Not too bubbly and smoothness like silk make it a pleasure to drink. I’d raise this pint any day.

czar (5013) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
pours unclear dark golden, red tint, with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. toasted caramel and fruity maltiness - surprising hint of chocolate, dry fruity liquor - berries, bland herbal grassiness, light earthy notes, very chalky and mineral. light carbonation, light body - a tad watery; short and bland yet sort of balanced grassy-herbal finish. weak amber but then again inoffensive.

Slightly sweet, nutty flavour with moderate bitterness and gentle vanilla and brown sugar accents. Medium body, moderate to medium carbonation, midway between smooth and crisp.

Ferris (6528) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
Draft - Caramel and light grains. Clear copper with a nice beige head. Malty light cocoa and a rich finish. Nice but a little odd for an amber.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa beer fest. A clear light gold with a soapy head & a earthy malty aroma. Medium-light bodied with a sweet somewhat sugary taste plus some grassy/earthy notes. A boring lager.

Pint on a nice sunny day. Clear amber pour with a medium light beige head that leaves good lacing. Malty heavy aroma, toffee, honey, bread. Taste is caramel, fairly mild hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Quite a nice amber.

sudomorph (783) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear, caramel/amber with a one finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma has notes of caramel, bread, and a touch of fruityness. Perhaps an English yeast. Taste is balanced. Slight bread, caramel, a hint of hop spicy and chocolate/roast, and a short aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall an easy drinking brew. Mild flavours that would probably not offend anyone.

Pour at the cottage off of Lake of Bays comes on yet another cloudy day. My goal tomorrow is to hit that cool little pizza place in Dorest & grab one of their fire tower pizzas & a can of crisp pilsner & have us a picnic. Wait, why am I writing about this in my beer rating? Cuz there’s nothing much going on here. Pours meh into the glass. It’s sweet & malty, with a suggestion of powdery chocolate. No worries, as I’m only going to drink 1/3 of this can before I stick it up the ass of a chicken & throw it onto the BBQ with another, more tasty brew in hand.
