Clear orange color. Some amount of sweet malts on the nose as well as buttery notes. Buttery taste with bitter flavors.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
Nice enough looking beer, at least, with an appealing amber (duh!) colour, accompanied by a mild malt-infused aroma. Taste was like it was "tinned", not really much to like about this beer, sadly.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 500 ml can. This is a good-looking beer. Pours a nice light copper colour with a big creamy head that unfortunately does not last long. Not much aroma. Has a nice body. Typical pale malt flavor. As the beer warms up, and the carbonation subsides a little, the malt flavor starts to sweeten and noticeably improve. The hop flavour is not that strong.

Cirrhosis (1196) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Thirsty beaver one of my favorite party beers high quality, inexpensive, and the name and label are great conversation topics. Honey brown in color and maybe just a touch of red, a medium sized tan head caps of this brew, a good sized skiff remains after a minuet or two. A very light hop aroma is present followed some nice caramel malts, overall the sent is smooth and rich, but could be a touch stronger it’s a little difficult to detect. The taste is very nice light hops built on a good strong malt back bone, dam so very malty, so much rich tasty malt flavor, accented perfectly with light hops. The beer is full bodied and creamy and leaves a sweet bready after taste. Such a good beer well crafted with tons of flavor."

VertBaconStrips (2063) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 31, 2009
Deep, clear copper in colour with an ok sized white head. Almost zero lacing. Smells of sweet toasted malts, very mild floral touch and a good freshness. The malts really come out as you near the bottom of the glass. Medium to heavy bodied for this style. Lots of tasty fresh malts with slight caramel in the background. Clean feel and a real solid feel to it. The lack of aftertaste forces you to the fridge for another. I swear I am not copying the review before this. This is sooo much better than the last time I had this - I had actually considered it sub-par and a waste of money. No longer. Another tasty beer from Tree Brewing.

Not too impressed with this one. Too much malt sweetness compared to hop bitterness. not much going on aroma wise .Watery. Its not terrible just not too great.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2009
A gorgeous colour. Shades of brown, peach, amber and orange all working in harmony. Nose has soft fruits, warm sugar and soap. Peanut blanket, bitter hops, unsalted butter, caramel and more soap. Less harmony here. Finish is long with Worther’s Original and malt. Roller coaster beer - starts of with a bang, fades in the middle then finishes strong.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 15, 2009
(34.1cl bottle) Hazy, amber colour with a short off-white foamy layer. Sweet, slightly sugary bready malty and slightly toasted aroma with a tinge of vegetables. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Bready and faint toasted malty taste with notes of candy, leading into a sweetish malty finish with almost no bitterness detectable. Quite one-dimensional brew (09.IV.09).

pivnizub (8750) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 13, 2009
Bottle (thanx to Jonas!): Hazy, amber coloured, small, lacy off-white layer; moderate aromas of sugar and toasted malt in the nose; light to moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, quite light bodied; sweetish toasty-sugary finish. Not bad, but quite uniforme........

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2009
Pours a light amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is of bananas, some red berries, caramel, and a little toasted malt. Tastes of Bananas, apple, caramel, berries, and a little toasty malt. Mouth feel is soft and easy going. It’s a little sweet for my taste... But still a nice beer.
