Tree brewing has a lot of great beers; this is not one of them. Pour had almost no head, left no lacing. Very flat and watery mouthfeel, primary flavour was syrupy malts. Not the best.

caramel, grass, spruce, amber, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish
Amber pour with fast falling white foam. Be quick to catch aromas because they disappear fast. Caramel and grass at first, then hint of citrus after a minute. Taste is more sweet than bitter. Average carbonation and slick mouthfeel. Finish is slick with an astringent, slightly metallic after taste that lingers. Not great.

Pours light copper with a small white top. Aroma is spice and earthy hop, rather unpleasant. Taste is better with earthy, caramel malts with light hop bitterness.

So rebranding the banal caramelly 1990s amber ale as "session" because that word is trending? It’s either misinformed - there’s nothing sessionable about a cloying sweet 5% beer - or cynical. Insipid crap like this doesn’t offer one single reason to session it. No balance, no character you might want in a beer, and it’s leeching a really positive trend to sell terrible beer. One of the worst things I’ve seen out of BC in a long time.

Couleur ambré/doré avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme léger du malt et houblon. Le goût me fait penser en une IPA très léger. Pas trop du corps et même pas très bonne. Je ne boirais pas plein. Dommage pour un ’session ale.’

clear amber. Nice aroma of sweet wheat. Taste of sweet with a touch of bitterness at the end. Not bad but would prefer something else.

Rating #1006 - 1oz sample from leftover summer taster pack - February 25, 2014. Clear yellow pour with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is cornbready, sweet malts and grainy/grassy. Taste is a freight train of malt, medium bodied, with a tiny hoppy kick at the end to keep things interesting - grassy bitterness tempers the light bready malty sweetness. Decent.
