COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few years back, some friends and family formed our own "confederation" to enjoy making some delicious ales. In your hand is our first born Amber Ale. With a gentle malty sweeetness, and a perfectly balanced finish, it has that immeasurable ingredient....soul! Formerly known as: Robert Simpson Confederation Amber Ale

Bouteille 355ml étiquetée sous le nom "Flying Monkeys Amber Ale" mais avec le logo pareil à la bouteille Robert Simpson Amber Ale. De couleur ambrée pâle et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés et légèrement rôtis, léger de houblon herbeux et aux notes florales avec des notes de caramel, de noix et de miel. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement aqueuse et avec de faibles notes crémeuses. Léger goût de grains de malt grillés avec quelques traces fruitées (agrumes) dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un côté plus sucré des grains, rappelant le caramel avec des traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon à la fois floral et herbeux (gazon mouillé). Post-goût moyen-court et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux et floral avec quelques traces rôties.

Cerveja de aroma levemente cítrico, com uma aparência levemente dourada com um leve toque de lúpulo. Tem um bom drinkability.

De aspecto ligero con espuma poco duradera, demasiado dulzona a mi parecer. Probablemente no repita.

Pretty good. Slightly sweet, so not something I would have a few of, but I think this is a good beer. I liked the bottle.

Poured medium gold with a slight haziness. Toast aroma, slight sweetness. Same bread flavour with slight bitter finish. Not bad, but I was expecting a lot more flavour from it based on their other brews.

sudomorph (602) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours a transparent, light amber with a one finger white head that thins. Smell is faint with hints of fruits, yeast, and caramel. Taste is mild with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Smooth, medium body with a low to medium carbonation. Overall slightly above average. Crafted to be drinkable by all but certainly not the best capable by Flying Monkeys!
