Elle est rousse et limpide, alors qu’une mousse fière la recouvre. Elle laisse de belles traces. Malt caramel au nez, même très caramélisé. Une effervescence à point fait relever des pointes poivrées au travers le malt. Il y a aussi des saveurs de caramel au travers un côté minéral. Loin d’être extraordinaire, elle n’est pas banale non plus. (Amsterdam Inn de Fredericton) (1174-060814)

Light looking body. Crisp red. Thin head. Light aroma is more potato than meat. Thin body, old taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the brewery store in Fredericton.
Pours a beautifully clear reddish amber color with a decent sized frothy tan head that shows great retention. Aromas of caramel and toffee with a hint of earthy hops. Diacetyl rest, what’s that? The flavor is rich and malty with lots of caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Burnt sugar and light earthy hop flavor to counter the maltiness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. The diacetyl fits a bit better with this style than some of the others I’ve had from them, a bit too much for my palette.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of beige head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by caramel with some grass and spice. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a light grass and spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. A decent brew for the style, but nothing really stands out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark red with a nice ig cream off white head that leaves tons of lace. Smell is some caramel and sweet fruit with a hint of roasted malt. Taste is a huge hit of sweet roasted malt up front with a bit of fruit on the finish and a very faint hop presence. Great beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Not a strong aroma, butterscotch and caramel malt. Poured a dark ruby red with an ample sponge toffee coloured head. Fair amount of lacing. Taste is caramel malt with a little herbal/citrus hop and some earthy bitterness on the finish. Body is creamy, but a little thinner than I’d prefer. Overall, an acceptable example of the style.
