As amber Solace, an amber lager with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, OK. In mouth, sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, not very good. On tap at brewery.

Called Amber Solace. Pours brilliant reddish with a small offwhite head. Aroma is bready malt. Taste is moderately sweet with notes of light bready malt, a touch of caramel and loads of fruity esters. Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation. I’m not sure if this is the same beer because it doesn’t really taste like a lager. Either way it’s very tasty.

This is a very nice amber beer. Malty overtones and a nice finish. Mouthfeel is near perfect. If you like amber beers, try this one!

En fût. Verre de 12 oz dégusté chez County Cider (Picton, ONT) au coût de 4,00$. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel fruité. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée légèrement voilée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel fruité avec une pointe de noix grillées. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #7065)

500 ml bottle from my bro (thanks!), as Amber Solace, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Murky deep amber with a fairly tight tan head. Aroma: Sweet fruity caramel, bread crust, toasted notes, nothing much in the hop department, clean ferment. Palate: Medium body, creamy carbonation. Flav.: Rich maltiness with fruity caramel, toasted bread crust, a touch buttery?, no hop flavour to speak of; dry with low bitterness and a pleasant sweet malty finish.


jksipa (1047) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
Bottle from the Beer Store as Amber Solace. Slightly hazy dark amber under a one finger off white cap that fades slowly. Nose is lots of malts with some lighter fruit notes along with some grass and nuts. Moderately sweet with some dark fruit and light bitterness. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation. 7+/4/7-/3/14-

Pours dark amber with an off white head. Malt and fruit aroma. Flavour is the same as aroma with a bit of toasted nuts. Has a medium body and low carbination. A good easy drinking beer.

Spab (4320) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
500 ml bottle from The Beer Store (part of Taster Pack). Pours a cloudy orange/amber colour with average-sized off-white head. Aroma is modestly toasty and fruity with a light grassiness. Flavour has a fruity maltiness with some toasty character and a gentle grassiness. Average body. Nice.

TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
500 mL bottle. Labelled "Amber Solace." Lovely pour - copper colour and nice, thick head. Malty, fruity aroma and flavour. Pretty easy to drink. Excellent Vienna.
