3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 ml bottle, 5% a/v
Copper brown colour with very little white head. Doesnt last for long. Smell is sweet and floral with some malt hints. Taste is malty but with a nice backbench of hops. Very well balanced with a slight metallic taste.. Nice amber!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is actually a decent looking beer. Highlite of the beaver experience. Smell is sweet cooked vegetables. Taste- metallic with some cereal grains. Little hops to speak of. Mouthfeel isn’t bad and its drinkable enough. Can’t say its much of a step above a macro. I expected more out of Tree after having their tasty IPA. Better than a rickards red, but not by a lot.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice brownish reddish orangey ambery kind of color. Hard to describe. Nice thick creamy off white head that leaves a little bit of lacing. The aroma was kind of buttery, with a bit of hops. Flavor was lightly hoppy, with some very small fruity accents. The carbonation was sort of medium but really pleasant. I enjoyed this beer a lot, thanks Presario!

Didn’t really enjoy this one at all. I like a nice hops flavor, but this one just didn’t work for me the way their other brands do.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear light reddish-brown with a soon-forgotten head and light caramel malt aroma. I was expecting to be disappointed with this beer, so the hoppiness came as a bit of a surprise. Light caramel base with some spicy hops, peppery, decent aftertaste. Thin body, but carb ok. Not a bad beer, but really nothing special. Once again Tree comes through with a beer that is highly drinkable, which is about the nicest thing I can say about it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341 mL bottle, part of a mixed pack from a Burnaby liquor store.
App.: medium-light brown-copper, clear with a creamy tan head. Aroma: mild caramel maltiness, a touch of hops behind that (lightly citrus, grapefruit), a little brown ale nuttiness. Palate: medium body, fairly lively carbonation. Flav.: some light roasted malts, toffee, a touch of grapefruit hops, light fruitiness, a little nutty.
A bit light, but balanced. Gotta love the label...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel malts in the aroma with a light nutty undertone. Clear amber-brown coloured body with a low, large bubbled, shy, off white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Caramel malts are strong in the flavour with some leafy, green hops and moderate finishing bitterness that keeps the sweetness from becoming cloying. Light body is somewhat watery with fair carbonation. Tumbler. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (BC Liquor Store at Kingsgate, Sep-06).

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured a clear, lighter amber with a short-lived cap of off-white head. The aroma was very faint... with caramel and other sweetness plus a pinch of herbs. Caramel, toffee, and light smoke at the flavor base with an odd herbal character. Light-bodied and over-carbonated... left a tacky impression that wasn’t good.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
High carbonation, tastes similar to many other cheaper domestic Canadian beers (i.e. Molson Canadian) Smells like corn like many highly carbonated beers. Not the best from Tree who makes the incredible Hop Head.
