COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

pours a thick white head with plenty of carbonation from the can. strong aromas of hops and malt. color is very light amber. taste is lots of roasted malt, caramel, maybe even a hint of coffee. definite alcohol notes - high gravity does not go unnoticed, but does not detract from the overall impression. Much better than I expected - certainly a sleeper pick.

Yellow-red colour with white head, some lacing. Sweet malty kind of one dimensional aroma. Flavour of malts, nuts, raisins, but not a very pronounced flavour. Okay beer.

Wow, this is overwhelmingly average. Everything that’s good about it is faint, such as the aroma of sweet malts and kind of nutty flavour.

Solid offering. The aroma is almost non-existent but is reminiscent of garbage. The smell aside, it’s a very enjoyable beer. Not what I expected given the name "amber" but nice nonetheless.

Can 473 ml
Aroma slight tartness, dusty malts with some alcohol warmth.
Appearance clear amber with visible frisky carbonation. Medium light top. 3-.
Flavor and Palate : malty front , medium bodied. Low hop elements, flat mid. Some alcoholic notes ending. Forgettable.

reebtogi (6277) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
473ml can pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that settles down to some very thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some kind of grassy hops. Taste is some earthy and metallic hop bitterness with a light caramel malt sweetness and some woodiness. The metallic notes kind of knocked a few points off this one for me.

WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - APR 25, 2012
Not exactly quaffable, but somehow compelling. You expect a certain type of beer when you buy an Amber made by Brick Brewing but this just throws expectations out the window. There’s chaos hiding in that can. I find it really hard to rate, actually... the hotness is DEFINITELY there but it’s not overpowering, it’s clashing with what I would describe as roastiness, unexpected for this style. And do I taste molasses? Higher points than I thought I’d give it, just because it’s so exciting. Try it.

[4368-20120404] 473mL can. Maple caramel sweet malt aroma. Hazy, dark orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Bitter lemon zest toasted cardboard flavour has a lingering light sweet maple note. Medium body. Not for me. (6/4/6/3/10) 2.9

pintbypint (3641) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
473ml can. Clear gold, fat white head that leaves decent lace. Nose is bready, some light noble grassy hops. Taste is sweet caramel up front, gets bready, light rye grain, maybe some nuttiness. Some alcohol at the end, light hop notes, woody, herbal, little bready aftertaste. Medium body, a lot of carbonation. Not bad, kind of bock like.

2012-04-04. Hazy orange amber body, large off-white head fades a bit. Modest aroma, sweet caramel, light alcohol and modest cereal character to the grains. Flavour is similar, sweet sugars and caramel touches, dry bitterness in the finish has a light grainy character. Average palate. It feels like a sweet Belgian crossed with a strong European lager. The alcohol is not overly strong but is a bit distracting somehow. Reminds me of another beer that I can’t place. Okay. Can from the LCBO
