An orangish-golden pour, with an offwhite, almost dirty looking head. A soft and sweet maltiness... almost a creamy malt quality. A bit of a corn scent. Kinda interesting A similar corn-husk / creamed corn note in it. Otherwise malty and a slight honey hint. A smooth, medium body. Soft, shimmering carbonation. A nice, clean finish... the mouthfeel is basically just as the brewer describes. An easy going amber, easy drinker, and good session brew.

Great name for sure. Normal and boring aroma but nice malty taste. Aroma is of hops and sweet malts. Taste is slightly caramel, and malty. Medium bodied and smooth mouthfeel. Slight bitter aftertaste, but a great beer. Comparable to Yukon Arctic Red.

bottle: I must admit I’m giving this one a couple of extra points based on the name alone. Hoppy aroma with an unidentifiable sweetness. Pours a light amber with an ample head. Goes down smooth and easy with a slight bitterness on the back of the palate. What can I say......I love beaver!

Very light amber. Big head. Very light, but pronounced hops make this enjoyable. Nothing special, but drinkable.

jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2007
Draft @ the brewery. Amber body with a small white head. Moderately fruity aroma and flavour. Light buttery hints, light bitterness throughout. Slightly fuller than average palate. Drinkable but a bit dull.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
341 mL bottle. Amber colour with a small, diminishing, beige head. Mild aroma is sweet malt with a faint undercurrent of hops. Flavour is caramel malt with a little hazelnut, and some decent hops at the end. Quick finish. Light body, medium carbonation.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
Not nearly as delightful as the brewer’s IPA, but the Amber is crisp, refreshing, and quaffable. Might fit the mood if hop-assault isn’t on the agenda. Balanced. Decent hoppy finish too but nothing about the beer is outstanding or might distinguish it from any of the other "amber ales" out there.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2007
341 ml bottle, 5% a/v Copper brown colour with very little white head. Doesnt last for long. Smell is sweet and floral with some malt hints. Taste is malty but with a nice backbench of hops. Very well balanced with a slight metallic taste.. Nice amber!
