Far too bitter for an amber ale. One of the few beers i think is way too overrated on ratebeer. This style should not be so hopped up. Bottle on office ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2017
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Deep red-orange amber, off white head. Toasty caramel and pine, lightly resinous, a bit perfumey. Balanced bitter finish. Nice hoppy amber.

On tap. Pours a hazy red-amber with a medium, long lasting, beige head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of grapefruit, pine and caramel malt with a hint of roast. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, light roast, grapefruit, pine and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Not bad.

Brownish red, aroma is piney, kind of old school. Flavour is caramel, a light roast, and slight hoppiness. Not bad.

Rating #1867 - 2015.08.25 - Draught @revolutionyeg as Rum Runner - Clear amber pour, nice, moderate white foam. Aroma is light sweetness from caramel, malty notes. Taste is dry northwest citrusy floral hops., little caramel, fairly sweet, but no linger in the finish. Decent.

vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
Rouge pale avec une moyenne robe tan. L’arôme d’houblon avec du pin et agrumes. En bouche il y a plein de houblon. Amer au début, puis du malt caramel et des céréales, puis une finale bien amer. Très buvable et bonne.

UXO (1922) - CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
Appearance: clear reddish deep amber with three fingers (and growing) of fluffy light tan head, excellent retention and heavy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pine, citrus, caramel/toffee, bready yeast. (8/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-strong bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate to low carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5) A somewhat strange beer. I was initially intrigued by the hoppy aroma, but ultimately a bit disappointed by the final overall effect. Despite the initial redonkulously enthusiastic head, the carbonation rapidly drops off to low, causing the flavours to fall somewhat flat. The net effect of this is that it smells better than it tastes. Still, pretty interesting for a red ale. (15/20)

Went straight out of the fridge and needed to wait as I wasn’t overly thrilled. My nostrils are working a bit hard to hit this up - darker caramel, piles of sweet, perfume, Contact C, grapefruit, toffee. The taste is decent but I go in and out of liking it, being curious and thinking about what’s next in my glass. Plenty of hops add flavour and a notable bitterness that is dry. Pine, thick caramel, grapefruit, underlying sweetness. There is something interesting about this beer maybe it’s the combo of too much pine and a thick deeper caramel but the taste is fairly simple which isn’t a terrible thing. I should really like this but not today. It’s a ’hey, this is pretty good’ thing and seconds later not giving a fuck.
