look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a 500-ml can into a pub ale glass.

Appearance - copper colour with a 1/4-inch white foam head that eventually settles to uneven surface bubbles of various size. Some dry lacing along the sides of the glass.

Smell - fresh toffee with a soft barley foundation. Gentle roasted malt, very subtle in its presence.

Taste - very well-rounded taste profile with some sweetness up front, giving way to a creamy, dreamy, smooth malt flavour. A little fruitiness in the finish, just slightly waxy throughout.

Mouthfeel - smooth and not too carbonated, balanced nicely. There's a little waxiness that I could do without.

Drinkability - this would rank high on the drinkability scoreboard. This is not a boring beer. It has enough of what you want, and barely anything that you don't want.

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.
