COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Belgian Style Amber is made with a mellow toasted Belgian malt and is lightly hopped for a flavour that has a soft bitterness and an exceptionally clean finish.

Pours a pretty, rose-tinged amber with small, chunky off-white head. Nose offers mild floral and cherry notes to complement yeast. Palate adds caramel, biscuit and a hint of spice. The body is light and thin, but still manages to be buttery. The bitterness is well controlled, adding a slight edge to the mellow malt in a Belge Speciale style. It comes bit short of its Belgian counterparts, and Americans looking for "big" beer should look elsewhere. But as a gentle, balanced brew, it’s woth considering.

On tap, but have purchased in the bottle as well. Nice liquid - some micro qualities with macro consistency.

Strangebrewer (982) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2011
bottle. Poured clear orange-amber with a small off-white head. Sweet, bready-wheat aroma, really appetizing. Medium bodied, smooth creamy mouthfeel. Bready malt flavour with caramel and mildly bitter. A nice clean finish.

The aroma was mild and the head was short lived for a "Belgian". However the taste and palate (other then the lack of significant carbonation) was very pleasant, what one might expect from a Belgian single. I bought two 6 packs last year and then it disappeared here in Saskatchewan. When I came across it on a recent trip to Edmonton I bought some more because it is a little different from other beers.

En fût au Bay Side Lounge Vancouver. Couleur ambrée, peu de mousse. Arôme de céréale. En bouche, un peu de caramel, malt. Finale sans histoire. Fait la job.

On tap, Joey’s in Sherwood Park. Amber cour, small cap, tight creamy layer left after everything settles. Looks hazy but it might be the light in here. Grains in the nose, slight sweetness. Taste is grainy, a bit tangy, light level of caramel. Dry finish, grainy, hint of grass and citrus. Ok.

On tap at some pizza joint in the gas light district of Vancouver. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Nose is of bubblegum. Taste is of yeast, bread and bubblegum. Mouthfeel is medium-thin, watery, slightly bitter and had good carbonation.
