Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouvermcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2010
Hazy amber color; huge head, difficult to pour. Light malt aroma with very light esters. Smooth mouthfeel; malt and caramel flavor, dry and sandy/dusty; average bitterness.
More Amber Ale than Altbier.
Pours an amber-orange. Aroma of floral notes, caramel malt and pine. Taste is floral and sweet malt. Quite nice. Oakes (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2010
Golden-amber with a thin head. Somewhat flowery with earthy, caramelly character. Smooth malty character, light caramel and toast with some floral notes. Not altbier at all, no matter what they say. Ferris (16303) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle - Grains, some hops and sweet malt. Clear amber with a bubbly full off white head. Grains and some light brown sugar sweetness, a quick hit of bitterness and finishes on the grains again. Creamy taste but light on the tongue. My first Alt, but I will definitely seek out more.

Tap at the Black Frog in Vancouver BC. Pours dark Amber with a creamy beige head. Malty aroma. Med body. Flavor is mildly spicy and malty. Make that moderately spicy. Good alt IMHO. Tmoney99 (14866) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Draft. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex toasted balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate toasted complex flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of average duration. Good drinkable brew.

Bottle at the xmas tasting. Pours clear orange amber, nose is caramel, toffee, sweaty, taste is similar, kind of horrible. Sammy (12623) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
So-so Driftwood bottle. Perhaps too mellow for me. Cloudy amber colour with lots of white lace. Carbonation right there. Sourish and citrus. OK mouthfeel, passable drinkability. allmyvinyl (10946) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle at the 2nd Annual Garvie Christmas Tasting. Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of toffee, light saline. Taste is sweet, herbal, loads of toffee. Sweet finish. Dull.
