16oz glass at the Underground - been tryin' to get a hold of this one for a while now.

This beer appears a clear, dark ruby amber hue, with one fat finger of puffy, loosely foamy, and a tad fizzy ecru head, which leaves some solid snow rime lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of bready, nutty caramel malt, a further bit of nougaty sweetness, some mild hard water flintiness, watery dark orchard fruit, and tame earthy, citrusy, and leafy hops. The taste is semi-sweet grainy and biscuity caramel malt, weak orange, lemon, and white grapefruit rind, oily bar-top nuts, wet stones, black fruit, and more plain leafy, weedy hop bitterness.

The carbonation is fairly understated in its softly nurturing frothiness, the body a sturdy middleweight, and generally smooth, only a slight clamminess evolving as things warm up. It finishes off-dry, the biscuity malt lingering, but losing its crisp edge in the process.

Overall, a pleasant example of a typically underwhelming style in these environs - lots of flavour here though, and of the sort that encourages one to immediately come back for more.

Appearance - Pours a copper colour with two fingers of creamy tan head.

Smell - bready caramalts, leafy and earthy hops, nutty aromas.

Taste - Well balanced flavours of bready caramel malts and nuttiness, with the bitterness from the earthy/leafy hops showing up at the end.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with the sweetness from caramel and nuts and lingering hop bitterness.

Overall - Another fine offering from Olds College. Traditional amber ale flavours are present, showcasing the malts that the community is incredibly proud of producing over many generations.

This is a very solid amber ale. It pours with about half an inch of tawny foam that leaves mutant rings of lacing as the beer heads south. It has a lovely hop/yeast/caramel malt nose. The flavour is a wonderful combination of toasted caramel malt and citrusy hops, with an extremely dry finish. Aggie Ale befits the place it is brewed and is definitely worth a repeat tasting!
