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.

Copper pour with an off white head. roasted malt aroma, a little bit of fruit too. Taste is mostly mild malt with some citrus hop flavours. Not overly complex but decent.

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.

Can from Calgary co-op. Amber with a fizzy yellow head.Very sweet nutty caramel aroma. Sweet and malty with a cereal aftertaste. Drinkable but a little sweet and sticky.

stantheman (864) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Tall can from BCL store in north Burnaby. A medium reddish amber ale with generous blond head, fast fading. A slightly hopped, generously malted, pleasant, easy-drinking amber ale. Malted, slightly bitter, lingering finish. ’Nuff said. 3.2.

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.

Deep clear copper, frothy off white head slowly fades. Faint sweet malt aroma. Taste is grassy thin bitter hops and light caramel malts. Lively carbonation, light bodied and a bit waterey. Light bitter finish. Mundane.... Remember Lagerboy? wink, nudge 8)
