Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2006
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.

corm88 (11) - Timmons, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2006
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.

CapFlu (4483) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2006
(341ml bottle) Purchased at BC Liquor Store on Cambie for $1.77. Highly carbonated deep orange brew with a dissipating white head. Nose of hops with a major citrus butter kick. Heavily malted with mild diacetyl. A fairly poor showing...

jonas (5605) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 Bottle. Amber (duh), low head. Somewhat papery malt and light nut aroma. Ok chewy malt base, light bready and nutty, some flowery hops. Almond finish. Pleasant enough.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2006
Clear copper, thin tan head. Sugary caramel aroma. Moderately full mouthfeel with good caramel maltiness, a little nutty maybe, with a pleasant bitter finish. An amber ale that I enjoy on the same level as James Squire’s (that’s a compliment!).

LordUppity (26) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle. Copper colour with a very slight head. Smells almost nutty. I found the flavour to be extremely bland, with a thick, fruity aftertaste that I didn’t enjoy at all.

Aurelius (4065) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Pleasant dry-malty aroma. Bright, clear bronze. Horrid label. Dry, a bit astringent, malt and hops contribute to a decent bittering. Bitterness lingers into the palate. Finish goes doughy with toasted (unsweet) sugar. Thanks to my boss, DH, for the bonus.

Lubiere (9793) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2006
Amber ale with reddish hues, and a good off-white head. Sweet caramel malt with notes of butterscotch. A bit sulfury. In mouth, sweet malt, caramel and butterscotch, wiht very light hops, and rather light bodied. Merci, JM!

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
The artwork may be childish but the malt flavours are good. Second only to Yukon Red in my books. Poured a reddish brown with head. Smoother than a beaver’s pickup lines.

Trev (1899) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pale copper colour with a thin head. Sweetness (toffee) in aroma with with hops. Tastes is light with smooth finish. Lingering hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Light in the mouth with carbonation overpowering any weaker flavours.
