meeple (62) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2009
Clear golden-amber with nice just off-white head. Nose is floral hop, a little honeyish malt. Mouthfeel’s about where it should be, not too carbonated. Taste is toasty, little honey, somewhat unpleasant bitter finish. Too ’balanced’ in my opinion, not weak just nothing stands out.

mcberko (8707) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2011 500mL can - pours a brownish amber. Flavour is nuts, citrus, and kind of metallic (not in that bad a way). Refreshing and pleasant Tree brew.

piscator34 (2088) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 8, 2009
Canned sample. Brownish amber in colour with medium carbonation. Fairly basic aromas of caramel malts, a bit of toasted nuts, and a very faint citric hop note. Malt forward in the mouth with more caramel toffee flavors. The orange C-hop elements come through a bit stronger here as well. Lighter bodied than expected, with an earthy bitter finish. Not overly compex, but the subtle hopping and dry finish make for an easy drinking pint. Not bad.

JoeZasada (297) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2009
Bottle. Pours a medum amber with a white head. Aroma is malty. Tastes really malty with light hoppiness. A really good amber ale, great for those who like malty beers.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Amber colored amber ale with white foam. Aroma is pleasant roasted malt and light hop character. Flavor of caramel and light red fruits with zesty hop undertones. Finish is thin and lacks complexity but this beer is good for drinking without thinking too hard.

bulldogops (1111) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2009
Bottle. 5%. Clear, copper ale from Kelowna, nice, moderate white foam. Taste is malt, hops, little caramel, fairly sweet, but no linger in the finish. Aroma is quite nice, however, this beer presents very well.

Cavie (4005) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2009
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.
