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.

Appearance: Amber orange hued body with a nice sized two finger off white cream head, leaves behind fine lacing spread evenly. Aroma: Nice mild citrusy hop bite, with sweetness spread from the malts very solid offering. Taste: Smooth sweet flavor buttery malts with citrus twang from the hops very solid, a bit mild in the flavor but an incredible balance. Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied session ale here, full creamy edge moderate carbonation. Drinkability: I met one of the reps for Cameron's Brewing, and he bought me a second pint after seeing me drinking is product. I had about three pints total and thought it was excellent all around, very timid and withdrawn but the flavors that were there were in full cohesion.

I am of two minds about this beer. At their plant it went down well but was way too cold, and am told it is their best seller. It did not store well in my beer celler (no pun intended) and diacetyl was apparent serving it at normal beer serving temperature. The box recommends it be fridge stored (is it not pasteurized?) and they should have pointed this out at the plant.

I wonder if this is related to the brewery in County Durham. Both offer an "Auburn" Ale.
"Brewed by a connoiseur instead of an accountant" appears on the official, under-construction web site.
Deeply colored with caramel/brown hue, it tenders a glossy, cream-colored head of diminutive stature.
Fried grain and burnt sugar feature prominently on the nose and so do loads of banana, grape jelly and cream.
Pliant, pillowy textured and clean, it struggles to find a compelling fruit argument. Roasted sugar, toast, wood, caramel and resin balance nicely within the clear, light-bodied frame. Awash with briny, oceanic mineral and skeleton flavors, there does appear a discernable notion of aged lemon peel on the finish.

Bright green with a purple head. Nah, it's auburn, just like the bottle says. The head is thin, but hangs out for a while.

More malty than hoppy, with a subdued bitterness and a moderate body, the toasty creamy malt flavor combines with a clean, slightly hoppy finish to produce an ale that I could happily enjoy over an extended drinking session again and again. Nothing that jumps out & says incredible, just a very clean, drinkable, well crafted beer.

pours a nice auburn colour (who woulda thunkit?) with minimal head. The taste started a little hoppy and bitter then faded to a creamy aftertaste. the mouthfeel is nice and smooth. overall, a good beer, and perfect for session drinking. this beats the sleeman equivalent in my book.

this reminds me of a good light, craft beer with slightly more cascade hops than commercial beers but not what i would call "hoppy". I've re-reviewed this several times. Something just doesn't seem right with the finish. The nose is nice and citrusy. The beer starts ok with a nice cascade hop and malt balance but seems to finish somewhat......institutional? It's sort of a creamy, chemical like conglomeration. I bought a 9 pack this last time and still can't find better words to describe the finish.
