Review: Tree Brewing's Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale

Review: Tree Brewing's Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale by Cody La Bière
Tree Brewing quickly became my favourite British Columbian Brewery thanks to their tasty beers such as their Hefeweizen and DoppelBock beers.

I got two cans of Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale for Christmas. I had one with Christmas dinner, and now having the other one.

Appearance: Pours a rich red amber, kind of caramelly. Looks absolutely delicious. Head is bit of a cream. It's slowly going down, but not by much.

Aroma Thirsty Beaver has a very powerful hoppy aroma. It was easy to notice the aroma when pouring the beer. The hoppy aroma is rich with a bit of caramel.. yum!

Taste: One of the hoppier ambers I've had in a while. Pretty damned tasty. Somewhat bitter, somewhat sweet (caramel). This is a nice beer for just about any occasion.

Overall Thoughts: For the price (around $3.20 for a 500mL can), it's pretty decent. It's tasty, sweet, not lacking in hops and for only having an ABV of 5%, it's quite flavourful. Lastly, the name of the beer, as well as the graphic of a beaver about to drink a pint of beer is just hilarious.
