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.

355 ml bottle at The Moon Room Ottawa. Pours a dirty brown/Amber with a small white head. Aroma is strawberry jam. Tastes are sweet fruit with a slight tartness. Light and effervescent, medium light tart finish. Nice sessionable beverage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Darft. Amber pour, minimal white head that doesn’t last long. Slight roast nose, some caramel, a bit of pine a bit faint overall. Taste is better with caramel malt being the most prominent and some fruity hops. Not their best by a long shot.

Poured from bottle, amber with medium head. At first a very slight aroma but after a while notes of roast and resin were distinguishable. Taste mild with notes of dried fruit and herbs. Somme bitterness in the finish. Gained aroma and taste as it warmed up.

pictoman (826) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
Poured from 355mL bottle. Clear, medium golden yellow with full white head. Aroma of caramel and biscuit malt with subtle hops. Taste is more of a grainy biscuit malt with little else coming through.

330 mml bottle tasted the 30/09/2014. Pale amber colour with a small head. Taste of malts and caramel. Aftertaste is soft and waterly; carbonation is medium. Easy to drink. Nothing special. Next one please!

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.
