Tessic (921) - Brantford, Ontario, - MAR 21, 2014
This amber ale poured a deep red colour with next to no head. Scents include raspberries, malt, fruit juice and honey. First sip was slightly watery in consistency but had pretty good flavour. Flavours of hops, malt, leather and bread. Finish has medium hop flavour with cereal and toast on the side. Palate is mildly bitter with malty flavours.

northropfrye (2525) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
Dark red body, off-white head, not much retention, some lacing. Very raint grainy aroma. Taste is slightly sweet, dried fruit, a touch of roast in the aftertaste. Medium palate. Not much going on here. Okay only.

Raistlin (170) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2015
Very thin texture for ale. Clear light brownish color with white head that is average. Hits of coffee and black tea. Sweetness is under control. After taste gives hits of toffee.

Hammy78 (845) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
Can. Pours a reddish copper colour, white fluffy head and lace. Nose is malty, but not overly appealing. Tastes sweet, malty, a bite bitter, but rather thin. To be truthful it’s not one of my go to styles.

Diolch JoeMcPhee. Lovely fresh crisp malt aroma. Takes me back home. Copper pour with a thin dissipating lace. Nice malt flavour. A little too sweet but a tasty brew overall.

czar (5383) - 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.

asheft (2685) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
[Can] Faint noble hops aroma among with faint brown sugar, toasted toffee, and nuts. Clear ruddy brown under a lasting, tawny, off-white flannel blanket. 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 (7067) - 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.
