Not a bad beer by any stretch of the imagination, just not a wholevlot of imagination in this one. Pretty typical middle of the road amber ale

Pint draft at British Beer Co., Falmouth, MA. This beer suffers from a poor combination: heavy bodied and little taste. There’s a little of that red maltiness in there, but it’s not as robust as I had hoped.

TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2011
Growler acheté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales grillées. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée avec une très faible densité de bulles. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales grillées et d’houblons. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #3890)

Solid beer. Not very complex but nice hops that are balanced on the palate.

Poured a dark amber with a smallish head. Semi-sweet malts and a little bit of hops ot finish. Solid beer.

On tap at the British Beer Company’s Hyannis location. Pours a caramel ruby amber with a medium sized white head. Toast and malt, light grain on the nose. Toast and grain, crackery and grainy. Light caramel and toast, more grain. Soft easy bitterness on the finish.

On tap at the Lobster Pot in P-Town. Came in with only minor lacing around the glass. However, the aroma is nice and the flavor is good any malty with low to moderate carbonation. A very smooth drinking amber. Just my thing! - I can’t wait to get down to the area again to pick up some more.

Pours a maple brown/red with a white head that collars. Lots of sweet malt on the aroma. Malt in the forefront gives way to a balance of malt and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is zesty carbonation.

Location: I’ve had this one at quite a few different restaurants/bars around Cape Cod over the years, this rating is from a draft I had on 10/6/09 at a restaurant in Hyannis

Aroma: A nice toasted malty and caramel nose
Appearance: Pours a nice dark amber color
Flavor: Tasty mostly malt, light hop flavor
Palate: Smooth, medium body, easy drinking
Overall Impression: I think this one is a pretty nice draft red that I try to have at least once or twice every time I make it down to the Cape.

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This clean and nourishing Amber Ale develops chewy caramelized and toasted cereals atop minutious wooden hops and their whispering bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the dark red.
-The malt profile is this beer’s best asset, imho.
-Light fruity esters roam within.
-This is very drinkable; Québécois beer lovers would liken it to the best generic "Rousse" ales around the province.

On tap in West Yarmouth.
