Like our winged friends on the mountain,this ale is full of personality, withjust theright amount of hop! Warm copper colour. A well rounded mouthfeel with subtle bittering. A perfectly balanced brew.

330ml brown bottle. Orange pour, clingy white cap and decent lacing. Nose has some toasty malt, caramel. Taste is grainy and lightly toasty with light caramel notes. Dry finish, lingering grains. Light bodied, average carbonation. Overall, not very exiciting, very underhopped.

Very syrupy with some notes of malts and caramels. Whistler has some good stuff, but not this.

Great amber-brown with a medium beige head that slowly dissipates into a thin ring. Aromas of malt, nut, dried fruit, hop and toffee. Absolutely wonderful sweet and bitter blend with a smooth palate. One of my favorites

ACHops (1030) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2015
On tap @ Garibaldi Lift Co. Pours medium reddish copper with thin off white head. Aroma is lightly sweet oaky caramel malt. Taste is similar: decently rich chewy amber malt, only a hint of hops to balance. Nice and refreshing after a day of skiing, but pretty bland overall.

33 cl bottle @ wPBF Ⅲ
Aroma has sticky malty tones, ripe fruits and resin. Also wood and hints of minerals. Flavour has cardboard, mellow resiny hops and woody notes. Finishes with nothing. Aroma was promising but flavour is quite short and empty. Perhaps too old?

TBone (14784) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle at wpbf. Amber color, small off-white head. Ryeish, light bourbon in the nose. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Caramel, whiskey and grass. Perhaps not very fresh.

olio (8197) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2015
33 cl bottle @ wPBF III.
Pours dark golden color with a small head. Malty aroma, nutty and slightly fruity aroma. Fruity flavor, sweet caramel, some mild hay and malt. Feels a bit old and cardboard-y, sadly.

omhper (21886) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2015
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival, from Corner Pub, Beijing. Hazy amber, small head. Caramelly cardboard aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and what could pass as cheap whiskey, but comes out more as wet paper. Low bitterness.
