Portside Amber is an easy drinking amber ale brewed as an English Pale Ale. The reddish brown colour evolves from the unique chocolate and carastan malts. A subtle hoppiness is evident from the use of traditional Fuggles and noble Willamete hops. Complements are hardy meat dishes such as roast beef, steak and hamburger.

    Not a bad brew but not wonderful either. Nice colour to it, with a bit of head but nothing special. Touchers of caramel on the attack with the palate but sprinkles into almost nothing. Very light for an ale.

    Seems the signature of this brewer is headless, watery ales. This one poured a clear light brown-amber...moderate carbonation with an instantly vanishing cap and poor lacing. Very faint aromas of toasted malt and mustiness. Watery mouth feel...very weak toasted malt presense, some yeasty earthinesss in balance with some muted Golding hops..quick finish no after taste...not much of an ale..very watery much like the Elora brands they produce.

    Another re-review, and another Trafalgar brew that smells sour. The head just goes on forever and ever though. A weaker mouthfeel than the pilsner. A watery brew that is mostly caramel. And oddly, it has kind of this weird wine(sour) taste going on.

    Nice light amber colour with very little head and no retention. Aroma of some sweet malts and some darker fruits. Mouthfeel was a little thin and flat. Semi-sweet taste with a medium finish, reminding me of grains.

    This amber ale poured a golden-copper colour which was beautiful. Unfortunatly, it stopped there. Head was o.k. but did not have much retention. Some lace occured. Medium carbonation made of tiny, tiny bubbles. Bigger bubbles were at the bottom of my glass... just sitting there like there is no tomorrow. The nose was of sweet malt with hints of floral and fruit scents. The taste was sweet with a grain (cereal) finish. This brew seems young. It is a new arrival at "The Beer Store" in Ottawa. I think I will sit the rest of my 6-pack for a few weeks and age it. Trafalgar makes great meads, but beer they will have to work at.
