COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The best barley of all grows on the Magdalen Islands. We harvest the windblown, salt-kissed grains and use them to concoct a malt with a maritime accent that gives our beers their unique character. Come to our microbrewery À l'Abri de la Tempête, relax by the sea shore and dip your lips in a brew as fine as spindrift.

GRM (3117) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2006
Brown bottle, 341 ml, bottled in February 2006, purcahsed on April 13, 2006; eye: pale straw, white head that disappears almost instantly, a bit of effervescence; nose: damp corn, malt, salt; mouth: not much taste, a bit of wet corn, a bit of bitterness, very slightly sweet, light body, thin and watery texture, a bit of carbonation, no finale per se, absolutely no comparison to the sample I had at the 2005 Montréal’s Mondial de la bière en 2005 where I fell for its salty side; overall: big disappointment FRANÇAIS Bouteille brune, 341 ml, embouteillé en février 2006, acheté le 13 avril 2006; oeil : paille pâle, mousse blanche qui disparaît presque aussitôt, un peu d’effervescence; nez : maïs mouillée, malt, sel; bouche : peu goûteuse, un peu de maïs mouillé, un peu d’amertume, très légèrement sucrée, corps léger, texture mince et aqueuse, un peu de carbonatation, pas de finale pour dire, absolument aucune comparaison avec ce que j’avais goûté au Mondial de la bière en 2005 où le côté salin de la bière m’avait ravi; en résumé : grosse déception

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2006
341ml bottle. Clear yellow color with a little ring acting as a head. Not much aroma. Thin watery body with an oily texture. Starts with some corn-like cereal then moves on to some mildly bitter hops. Short finish. Light on taste. Boring. There are many high ratings for this beer, maybe I missed something but Macho Law prohibits me from admitting I’m wrong.

SocietyDweller (5) - CANADA - MAR 11, 2006 does not count
Easy drinking beer. Refreshing. Malt and cereal flaver. Should be good during hot summer day.

Quevillon (2567) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2006
Bu au Mondial de la Bière 05. Très légé, un goût de céréal anormal. Probablement c’est le sel de mer qui fait un effect négatif sur cette bière.

Lubiere (10551) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Golden lager with a good white head.. Faint sulfur notes over an otherwise crisp malt aroma. Good crisp malt with good clean german hops. Salty notes. Rich bodied for a lager. Quite nice.

Korny (22) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
Jaune doré claire aux arômes de céréale fermentées col moyen qui descend assez rapidement, saveurs de céréales salées douce. Bonne biéere de soif.

TaktikMTL (6088) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2005
Bouteille de 341 ml obtenue par une collègue de travail qui était en vacance aux Iles-de-la-Madeleine. Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes et de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est blonde légèrement pâle ambrée orangée avec une forte densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’ananas et d’houblons. La durée de l’arrière goût est moyenne. Palette: Le corps est mince et la texture sont mince. L’effervescence en bouche est forte. Présence d’amertume en arrière goût. (Rating #349)

Radek Kliber (6543) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 24, 2005
Aroma full of sweet juicy malts, faint hop character in background. Medium bodied lager with rather decent malt set. Long lasting gentle bitter aftertaste. Nice balanced beer . Refreshing and clean.

blankboy (6313) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev & jerc -- courtesy of jerc. Pours a clear sparkling yellow with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malt, not much else. Flavour of corn and sweet malt -- not much there. This beer is mild and watery yet inoffensive. Ho-hum.
