Cameron’s Auburn Ale is our most awarded beer. Deliciously complex, this West Coast style ale uses an abundance of citrus, aromatic American hops. Named after its unique rich colour, this beer offers a full body that evokes a multitude of different flavors. Watch for the generous hop aroma, smooth maltiness, followed by a deep smooth, perfect compliment for red meat, fish or a spicy food.

A: Ruby brown, filtered, little carbonation, 4 fingers of light beige head, fair head retention.

S: Nutty, medium toasted malts, light sweet fruitiness, black tea, light creaminess.

T: Nutty, medium toasted malts, light creaminess, tea like tannic quality.

M: Medium, medium low carbonation, medium body, dry tea like finish. Powdery.

O: The hopping is light, perhaps citrusy, but it really doesn’t show. It’s a malt based beer, borderlines on a British style brown ale.

341ml bottle, day 12 of the 2013 Craft Beer Advent Calendar.

This beer pours a clear, dark bronzed amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and generally bubbly off-white head, which leaves some nicely layered cloud form lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of biscuity caramel malt, dry maple syrup, mild citrus and pine hops, a hint of dark orchard stone fruit, and further earthy, floral hop esters. The taste is more gritty biscuity, bready caramel malt, a hollow metallic flintiness, orange, grapefruit, and dry lemon fruit, some very soft astringent woody notes, a nod toward some bar-top nuts, and very tame earthy, leafy hops.

The bubbles are quite sedate after a wee initial outburst, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, a certain mineral character reducing things a bit there. It finishes mostly dry, the fruitiness and bitter hoppiness holding tight.

Not a particularly interesting version of an already banal style, as the hops display bitterness, sure, but no real character beyond that. Drinkable, I guess, but after this one, I'm glad there's something else waiting for me tomorrow morning.
