2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
4 oz. sampler from the tap.
Poured a medium amber hue with a one finger foamy white head.
There was decent retention and lacing.
Most notable is the high yeast aroma.
Of the four ambers I have tasted this summer, this is the weakest.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une ambrée qui se laisse bien boire avec ses notes caramels. Mais son manque de présence (trop mince en bouche) et son amertume trop légère la desservent.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Kanata location. Clear copper body, minimal white head. Very faint aroma of light caramel and a touch of fruitiness. A rather unusual taste: caramel, a higher than normal amount of hops, mineral, yeast. A little unpleasant off flavour.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at 3 Brasseurs on Yonge. Deep amber colour with very little white head. Sweet malt and caramel aromas. The taste is mostly sweet with some bitter notes, although the body is less robust than most ambrées that I know. Not tremendously exciting or characteristic, but decent.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel, spelt (sarrasin), clean yeast, hopless. Not bad at all. Nice smooth bready and spelt flavours actually, although too filtered. Simple but Flavourful.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in the Ottawa brewpub, $4/pint on Tuesdays. Pours a clean deep amber with not much lacing, nor head. Fruity amber malt nose with a little sweetness. The taste also has fruity amber malt with some yeast in the finish. Not much hop compared to their Sugar Shack (also tried tonight, based on their amber). An easy-drinking amber beer with some decent amber malts and yeast.

On tap at Yonge Street, Toronto location. Amber coloured. Malty aroma. Malty taste. A whole lot of malt going on. A little bitterness. I'm not a fan to be honest. Did I mention the malt?
