Auburn Ale - Cameron's Brewing (Canada - Ontario - Oakville)
Auburn Ale - Cameron's Brewing (Canada - Ontario - Oakville) 5.0%
A dark or charred amber in a glass. A green hoppy and caramelized malt aroma with a moderate hoppy and strongly toasty taste.
The pronounced roasted malt flavours are quite dark, moving beyond a caramelized sugariness to roasted malt which can border on chocolatey but is mostly a delightful toasty maltiness. As well there is a very pleasant amount of lightly floral, barely citrus-like and not quite cedar hops - not quite because it isn't resiny as it lacks that sticky quality. The cedar hops character is less like the branches and more like a cedar plank you'd roast fish on. An interesting American Amber Ale, refreshing but full of character.
