Oakes (17684) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Bright amber colour. A bit strange - not distinctively gourdy, but at least a clean, crisp, moderately malty amber ale with toasty/caramelly accent. Hrm.

Cloudy orange and a soapy white head. Sweet bread, some biscuit, and a bit of a butternut squash note. Pumpkin, a hint of spice, some yeast, and maybe some tea. Nice sweet flavor that is mostly bread, biscuit, and toast. A bit of toast. Nice sweet and earthy squash notes, light yeast, and hints of spice.

Draft - Sweet butterscotch, caramel and some earth. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Sweet, a bit syrupy and a touch of earthy notes. The squash gives a very sweet earthy not that is interesting, but not really tasty.
