For the past number of years, Santa has been filling my stocking with a couple of unique brews, usually picked based on a unique name or label. This year was no exception. After a long day at work, weather delayed Mooseheads game and 45 minutes of shovelling, tonight I am tasting the Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale brewed by Tree Brewing Company out of Kelowna BC.
- Appearance: nice copper, reddish hue with very little head that didn’t last very long. Some sediment in the bottom of the glass.
- Aroma: a mild hop aroma is present along with toasted grains.
- Taste: mild hop taste, no bitterness. Sweet malt but well-balanced. Fruity taste as the beer warms.
- Feel: refreshing carbonation, clean finish
Overall, I liked the Thirsty Beaver, and would definitely drink it again, given the chance.
