COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Broadhead’s Grindstone Amber is a tenacious and tasty, rich-coloured amber ale that is hell-bent on hitting the spot. Bolstered by just the right balance of base malts, and finished with a strong but sweet sharpness, Grindstone is not for the laid-back beer drinker.

samzim (434) - Ontario, - FEB 12, 2014
Scent of roasted malt, caramel, and biscuit. Clear golden colour. Earthy flavours: Slight bitterness with flavour of malt and caramel. Medium body with mild carbonation. Nice, but not particularly noticeable.

Papillon (416) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2017
473 mL Can. Clear amber body with a fizzy-foamy white head settling to a thin layer leaving spotty lace. Aroma of cereal grains, sweet malts, earthy and caramel notes, grassy-tangy hops. It tastes like Multigrain Cheerios in liquid form along with pale sweet malts and a corn husk aftertaste. A bitter corn husk finish lingers in the finish. Somewhat obnoxious.

Cartoonkhaki (1300) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2017
Hazy orangy colour with an off white head. Slight sharp citrus note in the aroma. The palate is boarder line on watery and fulfilling. Flavour is just a standard array of malt and hop nothing to note .... inoffensive drink.

473ml can. Light orange appearance, hazy. Small clingy white head. Nose has caramel and light citrus. Taste - caramel malt, some sweetness and maybe a hint of orange. Nice mouthfeel, but overall a simple brew that was pretty average.

2.7
UXO (1896) - CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
Appearance: hazy pale amber with one finger of medium-dense ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grainy caramel, bready, floral. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter and lightly spicy finish. (3/5) It’s really, really hard from to get excited about an amber - and this doesn’t really change my opinion much. Malt-forward, with some floral hoppy character, but not much depth or complexity. (11/20)

Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2016
Cannette de 473 ml. Liquide cuivré clair surmontée d’une fine mousse blanche qui s’estompe rapidement. Arômes de malt sucré, malt caramel et avec une touche de houblons terreux. Similaire en bouche, corps mince, un peu de sucre résiduel, gazéification modérée.

Can. Pours a clear amber with no head. Aroma pretzels and syrup. Taste is sweet. Palate is flat and watery. Overall a forgetful beer.

daniel0017 (452) - Yukon, CANADA - NOV 13, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2015 A barnyard smell with geese in musty mitre basement maybe cheese, maybe mushrooms but we?ll never know. Copper color, full amber lacing glass flank. Faint taste of coral treasures on a warm afternoon. Satisfying to the senses but inevitable. Buy it once but not aging is asking for it.

2.1
DuffMan (10560) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2015
Can. Deep orange-amber, off white head. Earthy grainy caramel, thin. Tea-like undertones. I did not enjoy this.

3.3
Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
Can from the LCBO. Poured into a Shaker, poured a light amber with a thin white head. Malty with no real hop presence to the aroma, rather thin and weakly carbonated on the palate. Mildly sweet, clean finish. Not at all memorable, kind of a boring beer. Don’t think I’d buy another one.

3.3
Tranquillity (2465) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Can. Hazy red body, small white head. He aroma is nice, with some smoke and licorice. The taste is good, it has licorice and nice hops at the end.
