Nice clear reddish golden colour. When poured into a glass very little head. Nice mild taste. Very little bitter taste and not much on the fruits. This beer is very much to my liking.

One of my "go to" choices from Tree. Aside from the great name and packaging, this is a dependable Amber Ale. Nice copper color, malty nose, and a light mouthfeel. The toasted malt profile, with hints of brown sugar, give the Beav a very pleasant overall flavor.

330 mL bottle from a six-pack picked up at a London TBS; best before Oct. 21 2014. This is the last bottle (served slightly chilled), as I let a friend drink the remainder of this sixer a few days ago.

Pours a clear copper-amber colour, topped with one finger of frothy, relatively short-lived off-white head. It soon dissipates, leaving behind a soapy film, narrow collar and a ring of lace. The aroma is definitely on the saccharine side, with bready malts, caramelized sugar and ripe plum being the dominant facets. A little grassy, but the malt bill steals the show here for sure.

The flavour is of toasted grains, caramel, and doughy bread initially, with some vaguely nutty notes to complement. Mildly grassy toward the finish, with an earthy feel to the hop bitterness that completes the profile. Malt sweetness carries into the aftertaste. On the lighter side of medium-bodied, with restrained carbonation and a surprisingly smooth, satisfying feel on the palate. This is a well-balanced amber that would be easy to drink in large quantities.

Final Grade: 3.65, a B grade. Tree's Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale isn't quite a stand-out, but it's still a respectable malt-forward session amber in its own right. This is not complex or extreme enough to turn off the craft beer uninitiated, but remains a balanced, well-brewed beer that is easy to appreciate. A worthy effort, and a quality amber that I'll probably return to again at some point.
