3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml can from a sampler twelve-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet, served in a lager flute glass (wrong choice, I know). Pours a very attractive clear medium amber, light carbonation, with a bone-white head that rapidly vanishes, leaving no lace. Aroma is of slightly sweet malts, caramel, and dark spiced red fruit, touched with bitterness; flavor is slightly bitter caramel, some kind of aromatic wood, and spiced fruit, with a ’chewy’ mouthfeel and medium body. Spice and sweetness linger softly. Nice amber ale with good balance and just enough complexity.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
6-pack from The Beer Store. Pours a clean rich amber colour with a frothy warm cap that stays a while and leaves creamy lacing. Aromas are very mild with this one. Mildly malty at first with some hints of grass and citrus that come afterwards. Malty taste as well, with light caramel malts, nuts and not very good hops. I like this brewery, but this is probably my least favourite brew from them. Yeah, really don’t like the mix of that hop with caramel malts. Got 5 bottles to get rid of :(

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can @ AirBNB Arts Colony. Rich amber pour with a white head. Aroma is sort of nutty and toasty. A lot of caramel and bread, too. Slight grassy hop notes and dough. Flavor is mostly sweet caramel malts and bread. Slight cream and vanilla. A decent floral hop character. Mild red fruit esters, grass, and earthy bitterness. Not half bad.

Didn’t enjoy this amber too much. Found it to me sweeter than it should of been. Tasted of caramel, nuts, and a lighter hop taste. Had kind of heavier body, which stuck around in the aftertaste. Had a cute little beaver on the can.

The taste is great. It is rich and malty with some nice bitterness throughout. It starts slightly tart, and becomes sweet as the malt flavour develops. I’m left with some nice aromatic hops.
