Waterloo Amber is brewed with hops from the renown Hallertau region in Bavaria. This region is known for continuously culturing their hops since the 8th century AD and is one of the oldest hop growing regions in the world. Brewed with all natural spring water and a special blend of five distinct malts – Canada two row malted barley, two types of roasted malt, rye malt and a special distiller’s malt giving this amber its perfect whiskey color. We age this beer slowly with northern white oak, delivering the same subtle caramel notes and spicy aromas that are often found in many fine whiskeys allowing this premium brew to remain perfectly balanced from beginning to end.

blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
Can [473ml]. Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma of diacetyl, caramel malt, grassy hops, toffee and grain. Sweet flavour of honey, caramel malt, grain, some alcohol and a light, dry, bitter finish. Average bodied. Not really digging this at all, too sweet and a bit of a mess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
[can--thanks probstblueribbon!] Creamy aroma with lots of brown sugar malt, lemon notes, and some herbal and slightly grassy hops. Almost clear amber under a persistent quite cover and ring. Sweet malty brown sugar flavour with nutty and faint lemon accents. Bitterness is a bit subdued and the finish is not quite dry. The latter would provide a nice balance to this beer. Medium body, moderate carbonation, nutty and faintly sour finish.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2013
473 ml can. Pours golden yellow with a decent sized white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts, caramel, and grains and a bit of sour funk. Decent.

Papillon (426) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
473 mL Can. Deep gold body with a one-finger foamy off white head settling to a tenacious film leaving foamy ribs as it is sipped. A fresh fine pastries is the first part of the aroma that titillates the beer taster before noticing the light sweet malts and pungent earthy hops. Light sweet malts with a strong companion of medicinal herbs; intriguing yet put off with a fast-invading phenolic aftertaste, not bad but not that likeable. A long subtly minty finish. Sensational in all facets except Taste. Verdict: not graduated.

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
473 mL can. Pours a medium amber with a moderate white head. Big butterscotchy nose with caramel, rye and a boozy bite. Sweet and medium full bodied with average carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Delightfully malty.

bdettweiler (57) - KITCHENER, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
Pours golden amber with thick foamy head. Aroma is caramel, bread and fruity, herbal hops. Medium bodied with slightly more than average carbonation, Taste is bittersweet - bread, herbs and a touch of wood. The finish is pleasantly dry and lingering.

gramity (1678) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
Dark gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of heavy sweet malts, booze, and caramel. More sticky sweet malt in the mouth, along with berry fruit caramels, and whole wheat bread dough. Heavy bodied with a long finish in spite of the carbonation level. Seems like a simplistic overly sweet oktoberfest to me.

Eructoblaster (4328) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
Can - 473ml. Hazy amber body with a thin white frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with caramel hints. Taste carries maple and fruity notes. Ends with a moderately warming, bittersweet finish.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
473 ml can from czar, thanks mate. Pours a hazy orangeish pale golden with a nice, resilient white head. Taste is caramel, woody, fresh vegetables, touch of fruit. Some cereals. Finish is herbal bitterness, well-balanced, not so strong. Dry cereal, sweet. Average body, average carbonation. Not the beer of the century, but good nonetheless.

czar (9334) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
pours relatively clear pale golden orange with a nice white head, good retention, some lacing. some toastiness and relatively dry caramel, fresh cereals and oranges, grassy-peppery hops, warming alcohol, hint of sweetness. average carbonation - prickly, medium body, decent grassy-citrusy finish. ok.
