Yukon Brewing “Yukon Red”Amber Ale

The 2009 Canadian beer of the year is brewed in Whitehorse By Yukon Brewing. The label reminds me of Christmas, but hey, I have never been to Whitehorse, maybe it is always Christmas in Whitehorse?

Well, it is like Christmas if you are drinking Yukon Red. It has a slightly edgy aroma with a hint of floral, and a smooth caramel taste, with a slightly sweet aftertaste, like a hint of chocolate and cherries.

This beer has a little more bite than most pale ales, and is more similar in its intensity ti an IPA. So if you like an IPA, try this for something different. Also, it tastes nothing like an amber ale… It isn’t even amber,

Overall this is an exciting and delicious beer with a lot of personality.

Driftwood Brewery Crooked Coast Amber Ale

Well a coast that is straight would just be weird! A crooked coast is natural and rugged, and delicious. Delicious? Well you know what I mean!

This is a nice beer of intermediate intensity. Its copper colour was topped with a thick and unruly head. The aroma is very mild, and slightly caramel. The taste has just a little bite, really caramelly with some hoppy flavor as well, and a hint of citrus in the finish that lingers for only a few seconds.

This is, according to their label, inspired by the Alt-style beer of Dusseldorf, with the aromas of German noble hops and Munich malt. I don’t know what any of those things are, but I am sure it is good, because hey, nothing bad has EVER come out of Germany!
