On tap at Aux fous brassant summer 2012. The color is a clear amber with a thin beige head.The aroma or lack of it is of roasted malt. The taste is of malt,cereal some hops for that bitterness in the taste not much more.I hope in time it will get better.

Slightly hazy dark amber color with storming activity. Creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 10-15 minutes, with generous legs. Flavors of caramel, faint nutmeg and ginger, toasted grains, slightly nutty, peppercorn with herbal spices. Sugary, slightly syrupy, with bitter grassy hops. Slick and smooth full body with crispy carbonation. Light to medium strength finish, lots of bitter grassy leafy lingering hops, quickly overwhelming the taste, quite spicy and tongue coating. Okay freshness, slightly flat and dry. The flavors are decent, but are too faint and stumped by an over intensified finish of hops. Overall okay quality craft.

Bière de couleur rousse avec un col blanc. Nez de caramel. En bouche c’est assez classique malt caramélisé avec une légère amertume. Manque d’originalité mais c’est une rousse dans la moyenne.

Elle est rousse et limpide. Un anneau de mousse la recouvre. Malt et caramel sont pratiquement l’essentiel des ses arômes. En bouche, c’est poivré et âcre. Une légère amertume se fait un chemin au travers l’effervescence imposante. Plutôt ordinaire. Ça se prend bien si on est pas exigent. (Embouteillée le 10 juillet 2013) (751-220713)

Bendrixian (1492) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
red and slightly cloudy brew. Soapy aroma again, but caramel and some hoppy notes but it is fairly muted. Soft brew with a fast flavour and not much going on in terms of flavour or finish. watery and boring.

On tap at brewpub. A clear pale amber ale with a short lived white head. Flavor is toast, roasted grains, caramel, honey. Finish is toast. Not very bitter at all...Medium body, slightly sticky mouthfeel, weak carbonation. Decent amber...

In short: A light bronze ale with many many problems. Amateurish
How: Tap at brewpub, from the very first batch, consumed on the very first day Fous Brassant started serving their own beers
The look: Partly cloudy light bronze body topped by a persistent small beige head
In long: Nose is forest floor, some dyacetyl, some DMS, some toasted fruits. Something’s wrong here. Taste is grainy cereals, buttery overcooked caramel, boiled vegetables forest floor, then concludes in a weird astringent finish. Totally off and very amateurish. Fortunately not very flavorful so it was almost drinkable. This beer should not have been served and I’m hoping there was something wrong with the line/keg/whatever because if this was the intended result… ouch. I’ll probably re-rate because this pub is on my way to my parent’s place, it can only get better I guess… Apparently to make good beer this new brewpub go above and beyond… and under, and backward, and forward, and below.. basically they have no idea what they’re doing.
