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.

Boutip (6208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Can: Poured a clear light brown color ale with medium size foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of unrefined grainy malt notes is not very pleasant. Taste is also dominated by unrefined granny notes with light dry hops notes barely noticeable. Body is light with OK carbonation. Quite bad with low drinkability level.

ljthiessen (1255) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Can. Clear amber pour with a very small head. Sweet malty aromas of apples and caramel. Flavour has tons of caramel with light fruit notes. Fuller mouthfeel than expected. Not bad, but very one-dimensional.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Bière couleur de miel, limpide et où flotte une fine écume éphémère marquant le verre d’une très légère dentelle. Au nez, c’est très fruité, on note du caramel clair, de l’alcool. Elle est moyennement amère, quelque peu sucrée et peu acide. Elle est de texture huileuse, moyennement effervescente, de corps plutôt robuste et se termine sur des notes très fruitées et sur une belle chaleur d’alcool.

Tessic (1131) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
This amber poured a light amber colour with a big, off white coloured head. Rocky head. Scents include metal, dough and hay. First swig was very smooth but a little watery with flavours of honey, leaves and cereal. Finish is slightly sweet with honey/malt flavours lingering.
