Old review. Nice dark amber appearance. Relaxed malt and nuttiness. Very drinkable amber that was a perfect autumn seasonal. Probably my favorite beer ever produced by Pyramid. I miss this one quite a bit.

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
650ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of white head that leaves a spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some herbal and grassy notes and hints of spice. Taste is a bold caramel malty sweetness with a herbal and grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with nice carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A pleasing amber ale that is quite satisfying and unique.

Pours a medium amber color, nose is sweet and caramelly, taste is a little too sweet, no real bitterness, fake tasting.

Bottle. Pours a golden amber toned body with an off white head. Carmel and chewy with some light toasted malt, hints of earth and nuts. Butterscotch, a light wood notes, caramel and toffee with a mild session body and a sweet slick finish. Decent.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2009
A wonderfully colorful and vibrant amber ale. A bouquet of scents primarily malts, caramel, nutttiness and barley make an interesting aroma. Taste is better than the aroma. Caramel malts, sweet and clean. Palate is undertoned and overall this is a pretty good beer.
