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.

This beer had much more flavor than I was expecting. Easy to drink session beer with character.

Arôme de bord de mer et léger goût salin font de cette bière une très belle découverte. À déguster par une belle journée d’été.

Blonde translucide. Beau collet blanc. Légère amertume. Céréale fraiche. Malté et sèche. Un peu florale. Désaltérante. Simple mais bien agréable.

Thanks to M. Alain at the Montreal Bonisoir shop for pointing this out to me. Clean pale yellow; thick frothy head. Light slightly salty aroma. Quite the thirst quenching flavor. Very crisp, very tasty. Lightly hopped but very effective. Slightly salty. Imagine if this could be people’s every day beer of choice instead of Bud Light. Then I could stop making fun of them.

Slightly hazy dark straw color with a moderate amount of activity. Slightly frothy white 1 finger head that last for 5 minutes, with a good amount of legs. Flavors of sweet roasted grains, hints of lemon and caramel, floral and herbal spices. Nice sweetness, not too much, with salivating sharpness. Smoked malts with faint grassy noble spices. Slick medium body with strong prickly carbonation. Light and short finish, ending with a faint grassy noble spicy feel, and a roasted malt feel. Overall very good quality craft. Excellent flavors, well intensified, and super fresh. Quality ingredients and highly drinkable. Excellent representation of a good lager.

DerWeg (1594) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2010
Really nice well-made lager! Medium gold, clear, and small settling head. Faint sweet aroma with some quality barley malt crispness. Taste begins a bit honey-malt to start then changes to some floral, slight lemon, ends in lightly bitter and distinct, lingering salty. Goes beautifully with the 3-cheese pita toast I make.

Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
Originally rated September 2006. Bought at the Dépanneur À-Tout-Prix in Laval, Quebec. Date on label says bottled since March 2006. Pours a nice rich golden colour with slight amber-bronze in it. Its big head disappears quickly, but leaves a bit of lace. Average consistent carbonation and a small layer coats the brew. Some light flakes float around. The aromas are pleasant with fruits, caramel and grain cereals. Medium syrup mouthfeel with a crispy finish. The taste are the same elements of the aroma... good cereal presence with some light caramel and fruit. A better-than-the-macros lager and hope to taste more from this brewery.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2015 Il est rare que je révise mes «ratings», mais ici c’est essentiel. Je ne sais pas si la recette a changé depuis qu’ils ont écrit «pilsner rustique» sur l’étiquette, mais le produit qui est dans mon verre aujourd’hui est excellent. Une vraie bonne pils, légèrement houblonnée, bien fraîche, avec une base maltée fort intéressante. Je recommande chaudement.

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.

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.
