A malty amber ale, brewed with 2-row barley malt, caramel malt, and malted wheat, and four different varieties of hops, for a smooth, balanced flavor.
The perfect apres ski refreshment, or for any time you want to relax and warm up during the colder months to come.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber colour with a super dense tan head. Great fragrant aroma of strawberries, caster sugar, caramel, malt and english hops. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong malt flavour perfectly balanced with citrusey and english hops. Aftertaste shows a lot of the complexities as well as a good hop kick. Overall, this was a lot better than expected, and actually one of my favourite offerings from this brewery. Definately worth picking up if you can find it. I bought this twelve ounce bottle (bottled on 04-November-2003 batch #1448) at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2004 Bottled 11/4/03 Sparkling clear copper color. The head is off-white and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is malt. Not very complex. Flavor is malt with some hops but not too much. Flavor is very malt neutral, some citrus hop flavors. The bitterness develops more on the aftertaste as does the sweetness. The body is medium. Overall not bad but not the best either.
