Old Credit Amber Ale

The Old Credit Brewing Co. from the Old Credit region in Mississauga, Ontario, is the source of Old Credit Amber Ale, a handsome, amber coloured brew crowned with a creamy head. The size of of the 680mL bottle more than makes up for it's not-so-cool label. O.C.A.A. comes in at 5% alcohol. The label calls it "The New Taste of an Old Tradition". I don't know much about the new, but they've certainly got the old part right--this stuff tastes like a classic English ale.

The Amber Ale has an aroma that is at once slightly metallic and replete with caramel. It is a very smooth beer and features a flavour with notes of toasty caramel and a whisper of bitterness near the finish.

A very enjoyable ale, Old Credit Amber Ale would be bolstered by a bit more boldness, but that's a minor complaint for an otherwise quality brew.

Rating; 8.0 out of 10.
