Brewery: Cameron’s Brewing (Oakville, Ontario)
Type: Amber Ale
Appearance / Aroma: An enticing deep reddish brown color and capped by a fluffy cream colored head. Absolutely beautiful looking. Really. Really nice to look at. Lots of lacing.
Taste / Feel: Classic caramel malt red ale flavour with a tiny bit of smokey but balanced campfire feel it it. The hops don’t really do too much… maybe they could have. What I am about to say is true with most beers, but is more important with this beer than many others so i’ll still say it. If I critique the technical ability of this beer I will find that there’s ways that they could have made it better: it’s a bit metallic, a bit flat, a bit of a few things. But after I stopped ‘reviewing’ the beer, I enjoyed it a lot more. When I opened my eyes and starting drinking the beer while watching the game, it settled into a very nice little beer.
What do you think of Amber Ales in general? I find them some of the prettiest beers and the genre (not sure if that word works with beer..) is growing on me.
