look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Enjoyed a bottle at one of the many Hudson's locations in Calgary. Poured into a pint glass. This brew is darkish cola brown with a reddish tint, including a decent quantity of light tan foam. The aroma needed some additional time to warm up before revealing its true capabilities and wasn't too bad at this point. Smells quite fruity, I get some red apple and fermented plum, along with the expected brown sugar and less expected faint molasses. The aroma is a nice balance of dark malt and fruit. Little in the way of hops on the nose. Quite a fizzy beer with a semi-chewy, almost buttery mouth feel. Tastes of brown bread, the aforementioned fruit, honey, caramel, faint molasses, brown spice, and black tea-like earthy hops, the latter figuring more prominently on the palate than the nose. Does not taste of west coast citrus or pine. Finish is semi-dry, with some nutty bitterness and a little booze that recalls rum extract. All in all, a tasty amber ale in a style space that can be awash with mediocrity.

Poured from the can into my sam adams glass that I recently acquired from my store. This is a pretty popular offering from Tree Brewing in my locale.

The beer is a brown colour with a tinge of red to it. The head is beige and stands about 3 cm. It takes a good deal of time to settle - good sign of things to come?

Aroma is rich in caramel malts with a touch of what almost reminds me of nutmeg. Seems pretty standard for an amber ale.

Very full bodied taste - not shy on the hops either, which is nice to see in such a beer. Still, the beer is noticeably malty, yet is not sweet. Really nice balance. Touch of booziness in the aftertaste.

Fine beer; standard stuff, but well done.

This is the official line: my review follows.

Dave Goekiert has travelled to Caledonian Brewery, in Edinburgh, to collaborate in re-creating this beer especially for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. We consider this very apt, as beavers have recently been reintroduced to Scotland. This amber-coloured beer has a slightly sweet malt aroma, leading to a distinct malt character, with caramel and nut undertones in the flavour, resulting in a beer with a clean finish and bursting with flavour. Hops used: Cascade, Palisade, Perle.

Hand-pulled pint on 1st Nov 2012 in Montgomery's Tower, a Wetherspoons pub in Shrewsbury.

Amber body, clean and clear, a creamy head in colour and texture sat on top, staying for most of the tasting, UK pint sleeves are good at picking up lacing and this brew left some heavy lacing as the beer level fell.

The nose and taste were of malty molasses: caramel and some toffee esters too.

Earthy, woody feel to the body, although fairly sweetand malty initially, it calms down nicely and ends with a semi-bitter, dry aftertaste. Not bad at all, and at £1.49 a pint (with my 50p voucher), a real bargain.

Can driven from Halifax last week, with no indication of brewing or canning date. It tastes fresh, but may have faded.

Pours a bright but dusty, dark amber with white head and impressive lacing. Has a muted aroma of roasted malts. I would have classified this as a simple amber rather than an "American" version, only because there is absolutely no indication of west coast hops, anywhere. Caramelized malt sweetness leads into an inoffensively dry finish. The lingering notes are very mild, neither sweet nor bitter.

Much nicer than any macro amber and probably an excellent transition beer for anyone just starting to experiment with flavour.

3.1/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy, rusty amber colour with a small white head that gets retained as a collar without leaving much lace behind.

Sweet, syrupy and malty aroma with a strong caramel tone and pronounced vegetal character. Also has hints of chocolate, allspice and wet grass.

The taste has a deep, roasted malt flavour with a nice fruit tone behind it. Solid bitterness balanced by a syrupy sweetness. Vegetal character returns in the finish, along with a peppery note

Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Yeast and bread-like character on the tongue. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter with a lingering roasted malt flavour and a hint of diacetyl.

Decent amber ale, but something about the vegetal quality puts me off a bit and it’s a bit too much sweet caramel for my taste overall. Has paired best in my experience with sandwiches and salty snacks.

Appearance- Pours a clear light copper colour with a half finger width of white head.

Smell- Grains, bready, grassy, and a very liitle hint of caramel.

Taste- Grassy and grainy flavours are predominate followed by a touch of the sweet caramel.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. Has a smoothness and refreshing quality to it.

Overall- A respectable amber ale by Tree. I was expecting a little more flavour to the body itself. Other than that, a refreshing summer beer.

341ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.

A - So I just pulled one of these out of the fridge and was greeted by an unopened, half-empty bottle... (HOW?!) Not a great start. After grabbing a FULL bottle of this ale, it pours a clean copper hue with a light tan head of frothy foam.

S - Smells of sweet caramel malt with notes of toffee as well. Nice grassy hop presence. A bit of buttery biscuits and bread too. Quite nice.

T - Wow, talk about a let down. Starts off with the malty presence as expected, but immediately heads south, with a big adjunct grain flavor. Finish is cereal and corn, with a dash of grassy hops. The malt flavor never comes to fruition either. While this amber ale may not be generously hopped, I would have been happy with a nice malty ale as well, but this really isn't either. Disappointing.

M - Carbonation is a bit fizzy, and the body is quite light and watery. This doesn't do anything to help the already adjunct lager-esque flavor profile.

D - Overall, this amber ale was thoroughly disappointing. Just not enough flavor to be anything more than mediocre. This ale was no where near up to par with the Tree brews I've had in the past; I'll pass next time.

Pours dark red. Thin head settles quickly. Not much in the way of lacings.

Earthy aromas. Slightly sweet malt with just enough hops to bring it back down.

Malt backbone is pretty standard for a North American Red. Slightly sweet, with the hopping adding a bit more earthy depth.

Mouthfeel is a bit disappointing. Too much carbonation takes away from whatever more interesting flavours are there.

This one is sort of in the Canadian Ale category, charting a course between the fruit & nut English offerings and hopped up American versions. It works well enough.

Pour - dark amber with a great looking inch of head. Carbonation looks spot on and the appearance is clean and clear. This looks lovely and won't last long - I can already tell.

Aroma - biscuity malt, bread dough, caramel, brown sugar, burnt sugar, ice cream cones.

Taste - sweet and malty with a bit of toastiness, almost reminds me of a brown ale as its got a lot of character. So smooth and clean and quite thirst quenching at a very reasonable 5%. Love the malt profile of this beer, its sweet but not too sweet and brings about so much flavor. When beers taste like this I'm okay that there isn't a whole lot of hop presence. Great beer. Wish I had more.

Overall - it's no wonder this is their most popular beer. It's smooth, easy to drink and very tasty. Amber Ales tend to be the go to brew for many a beer drinker that has yet to really test their palate with something uber-hopped, barrel-aged or strong enough to be served in a snifter. Regardless of where you are with your beer drinking this is a beer you won't be sorry you tried. You may even try a few more...just to make sure. As amber ales go, this is better than most.

Thirsty Beaver is a fairly bright caramel brown tone that retains transparency even after the addition of some bottom-dwelling yeast. While streams of carbonation are visible, something clogs the bubbles up as no head forms; the beer could have used the foam to cover up the muddied, less-than-aesthetic colour that reflects off its bare surface.

Although flat at first, the aroma grew quite musty with warmth, developing a strong cellar character like that of a bière de garde. This impression is helped along by some impressively rich, sweet malt that has very perceivable notes of toffee, dried cherry, grapes and an earthy component compounded by the vague presence of spicy Noble hops.

Thirsty Beaver is my kind of amber ale: it is rich with malt and the hops were added later in the boil so that their flavour is appreciated, but not much of their bitterness. The lack of kettle hops preserves flavours of toffee and dried fruits and contributes a blend of peppery, steely and fruity notes without any lingering pungency or harsh weedy elements.

All that said, an extra handful of hop pellets wouldn't have thrown anything off; malt outnumbers hops by a considerable ratio. I also might dull the bubbles just a touch; not only does their fizziness detract from the flavour but, like an over-eager waiter, ushers it all away too quickly. I keep saying: 'Hey! I wasn't done with that!' I would have liked some aftertaste.

Thirsty Beaver should be taken more seriously than the cartoon beaver on its label might have you to believe; while it initially struck me as a commonplace, average amber ale - which by most accounts it is - I found some very interesting, albeit subtle, bière de garde-like characteristics that made this far more memorable than most in the style otherwise are.

This beer has a nice reddish amber colour (whoda thought?), and a thin layer of foamy head settles on top.

Some toasty malts come through in the nose alongside some sweetness.

The taste is quite good. It is rich and malty with some nice bitterness throughout. It starts slightly tart, and becomes sweet as the malt flavour develops. I'm left with some nice aromatic hops.

Overall, this is better than I expected. It would make a great session ale.

A: Pours a clear golden orange with two fingers worth of off white head. Settles to a creamy cap and leaves lots of thick lacing all over the glass.

T: Caramel malt at the start but then it's taken over by the hops and has a bit of a bitter after taste. Occasionally I get some sweetness near the end as well.

M: Light carbonation with a medium body.

D: Nothing spectacular about this beer but it gets the job done for an amber ale. This would be perfect for a session beer. I wouldn't have a problem buying it again.

Undated 500 mL can poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: The pour well exceeds my unlofty (is that a word) expectations... Clear, red-orange-brown with a gorgeous white (with a touch of brownish hue) head that almost comes out of the glass. Laces well at first and the head retains well

S: Aromas are fairly one dimensional, with a sweet and somewhat bready caramel/toffee malt coming through. A bit of earthy hop is apparent too. Later some american hop aroma plays through ir a more assertive way.

T: Biscuity and bready malt comes through first with a bit of a weak and watery finish. I love the initial hit of flavour though, and wish it stayed. Some toffee is also apparent,though little hop flavour is apparent, much to my surprise.

M: Carbonation is a little weak (especially since I poured moderately, and received an aggressive head) leaving a mouthfeel thatis not strong enough for me to consider it cask-like. A little watery...

D: All things considered, I really enjoyed this beer. I have seen it many times and avoided it after seeing the reviews, picking up more anticipate beers in its stead... Sorry Tree! I will seek you (and perhaps your compatriots) out again...

A well-crafted, eclectic brew. It's like an Alt beer married to an English bitter... not what you'd expect in an American Amber.

A: Bronze with a white head, ring of retention, great lace.

S: Floral and steelie, grassy hops, hint of citrus rind, earthy (almost sulfury) mineral, sponge toffee,

T: Surprisingly hop-forward, plenty of grassy, floral, peppery & steelie hops, earthy-orange, sponge toffee, biscuity malt, solid bitterness.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- This beer is golden amber in color, is reasonably clear, and looks to have some moderately slow columns of bubbles rising to the top. Head retention isn't very good, starting out as a half inch of off white foam....quickly fizzles into a patchy layer over the liquid. The lacing holds up reasonably well, leaving small clumps of foam clinging to the glass.

S- There is a mostly dominant sweet yeasty/bread aroma going on here, with backnotes of golden (not true brown) sugar, toffee and/or caramel. The finish completely lacks any hop bitterness, but rather a buttery richness.

T- The flavors are more malty than anything and comes across as sweet but it's richer than the aromas let on. There is some butter toffee mixed in with some sweet biscuits. The finish does have some bittering hops present but the flavor is modest. Not a bad tasting beer overall.

M- This is definitely medium bodied and smooth, just as the label promises. The carbonation is fair and doesn't really hit the palate till the finish. The creamy nature of this beer, along with the flavors reminds me more of a dessert than anything else.

D- I think this brew is decent overall. The flavors aren't bad, it's creamy and it's different. I would drink this again, just not a ton of it however, as I find it filling. The alcohol is hidden well and it's perhaps a tad sweet. I say to give it a try at least.

The colour is amber with a tint of red, the liquid is clear. The two finger head is airy and warm white. It sinks quickly leaving some lacing.

The smell is medium bitter with fresh notes of caramel and butterscotch. Hoppy flavours of bitter herbs and grass. It is quite dry.

The taste is quite light with a fine mix of grass/hay/flowers and sweet caramel/nuts. Clean fresh medium strong bitter notes. The aftertaste is short and sweet with notes of dried fruits, moss and beef stock.

The carbonation is fresh with small, short-lived bubbles. The liquid is mid-smooth.

A decent amber ale with an odd hint of moss in the aftertaste.

It's time to test the waters of Tree Brewing again with this 500 ml tallboy. Bought in Vancouver last month, on to the beer:

Autumn orange in color, the head on top is thick with soapy texture and spotty lacing. There's fruity ester in the aroma. A little unfermented malt. Sweet bread.

Sweet like an oktoberfestbier. Come to think of it, it does taste like a clean oktoberfest. Sweet bready flavors all around the palate, a tiny kiss of the hops, notes of pumpkin (that sounds weird, doesn't it?). Light-medium bodied, carbonation doesn't get in the way, easy drinking...I approve.

I expected a reasonable, easy drinking beer from Tree Brewing, but what I got was a more FLAVORFUL, easy drinking beer. I also forgot how good a malty beer can be. This is my favorite of the three beers I've sampled from Tree.

Coppery brown, with suspended sediment throughout. A thin white head bubbles up, then almost immediately disappeared. After the previous disappointment with Tree's Kelowna, I carefully chose a new, perfectly clean and detergent-free glass. It ain't the glass at fault here.

Aromas are sparse and barely recognizable. After drinking half the pint, I'm starting to believe I can detect a hint of something malty. There is a suggestion of toastiness, and a vaguely corny sweetness in there somewhere too.

The "malt" tastes like an old homebrew made with stale DME -- and I've tasted many of those. Again with a bit of corny sweetness. Hops? Technically, I guess they're in here.

The body and mouthfeel are decent, at least.

This is a lame beer, and not worth it: not worth the calories, not worth money, not worth the bladder space that could be used by something tastier. First the Kelowna, and now this. What is going on, Tree? Seriously.

Part of CanBIF6 from wordemupg, thanks!

I could see right away this one was not a good candidate for quality head production so I poured really hard. Only half a finger of light-beige head resulted, and even that quickly receded to whips across the surface and a ring around the glass. The body is translucent and dark-amber in colour. Nice colour, I suppose.

The smell off the head is mostly biscuity malt. After the head disappears it's hard to pull much off this one: toasty malt, sweet pineapple, corn. Some butter and caramel come out as it warms. Nothing special.

I have to admit I'm pretty disappointed here. I was expecting at least something decent from Tree; this is average at best. Light, watery malt meets up with only a trace of hops. There's a slight peppery aspect, mostly showing itself on the finish. Everything is so light. On a scale of 10, if this beer is a 1 in terms of intensity I feel like Tree could turn it up to 8 or 9 and maybe it would be worth drinking. No obvious flaws, just much too boring and watery.

It is medium bodied as stated on the can. The carbonation is too effervescent for this light brew.

I'm not generally a fan of amber ale and this example isn't about to convert me. Why does amber ale always taste like this? Maybe I just don't appreciate the style. Every amber I've tried has been completely uninteresting and this one is no exception. Sure, it's drinkable and would totally be sessionable if your thing is flavourless amber ale. The can boasts that Thirsty Beaver is, "bursting with flavour". I guess this can burst all of its flavour somewhere else, none of it ended up in my mouth. demcorhip, I agree with you: uninspired sums this one up.

A nice enough looking amber ale. Decent enough head, but not much for retention. Thanks to Stagger for CanBif'ing this my way.

A nice enough malt nose, some toasted biscuit with hints of butter and toffee. Hops are grassy and a little floral and somewhat boring, certainly not able to compete for my interest with the Sadies playing background.

No surprises on the taste, much like the nose. And also somewhat astringent and husky, a characteristic that was also obvious in their Cutthroat PA. Decent enough, but perhaps a little too safe and uninspired. Or maybe im just jonesing for some green cone action...

As an american styled fest beer this is pretty good. As an american amber ale im wondering where the american hops are. A good, solid ale with a nice toasted malt character. Id just like a whack of hops, or a little something to make me say wow...

This delicious beer came at a sweet price and a free Tree Enviro-bag. Sweet deal!

A - A red caramel colour. Visibly carbonated pouring a nice thick thumb of head and leaving a considerable amount of lacing.

S - Very unique scent, a sweet bready malt with bitter citrus undertones. A bit of a butter scent on the the nose as well.

T - The sweet malts come off the very top, like a light butter toffee flavour, and it finishes with a bitter hop. Very nice balance.

M - Looks are deceiving. Although it appears to have a lot of carbonation, it is quite smooth on the palette. Not too light, but not too heavy.

D - Very drinkable. Perfect for someone who's looking for a bit more flavour in their beer, but isn't wanting something too heavy.
