Not nearly as delightful as the brewerís IPA, but the Amber is crisp, refreshing, and quaffable. Might fit the mood if hop-assault isnít on the agenda. Balanced. Decent hoppy finish too but nothing about the beer is outstanding or might distinguish it from any of the other "amber ales" out there.

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!

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 isnít bad and its drinkable enough. Canít 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.

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!

Didnít really enjoy this one at all. I like a nice hops flavor, but this one just didnít work for me the way their other brands do.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2007
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.

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...

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).
