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 (8590) - 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 (9036) - 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.

GregClow (2914) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle. Sunset orange-amber with a small off-white head. Nice aroma of toasted barley, a but fruity, with mellow hops to balance. Flavour follows, with a slight apple note, and hops that are a bit more prominent in the finish than suggested by the aroma. Medium bodied. I did not expect much based on the kinda cheesy label, but this ended up being a nice, balanced, drinkable ale.

pootzboy (1597) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle from variety pack. Pours a shimmering deep amber with a 3 finger puffy cap that laces well on the glass. Aroma is nice: lots of toasty maltiness, caramel sweetness bit of musty fruitiness from the yeas under a predominant citrus-floral hop aroma..I like malty beers so this aroma is ambrosia to me. Moderate body with a good malt spine, chunky mouth feel with a malty-toffee-floral character. Up front the lush caramelized malts predominate then the fruit-citrus and herbal bittering create some mild complexity, Finish is thick, malty and lightly bitter. My favorite Tree brew.

Proteus93 (65) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2008
An orangish-golden pour, with an offwhite, almost dirty looking head. A soft and sweet maltiness... almost a creamy malt quality. A bit of a corn scent. Kinda interesting A similar corn-husk / creamed corn note in it. Otherwise malty and a slight honey hint. A smooth, medium body. Soft, shimmering carbonation. A nice, clean finish... the mouthfeel is basically just as the brewer describes. An easy going amber, easy drinker, and good session brew.

patricks110 (1780) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2008
Great name for sure. Normal and boring aroma but nice malty taste. Aroma is of hops and sweet malts. Taste is slightly caramel, and malty. Medium bodied and smooth mouthfeel. Slight bitter aftertaste, but a great beer. Comparable to Yukon Arctic Red.
