douglas88 (6333) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet fruity and earthy hops. A dry easygoing flavor of hops, fruity no bitterness, easygoing, some toasted malts. Enjoyable.

Une petite pinte provenant du fût sur place. Bière cuivrée, peu de mousse mais elle reste jusqu’à la fin de la pinte. Nez léger de sucre brun, fruité provenant des levures et une touche de houblon. En bouche la bière est légère, elle se boit tout seul, elle est facile, agréable, une touche piquante. Très agréable, une bonne bière soif.

Amber color, with a beige head, earthy raw grainy toasted, caramel malt nose with some biscuity, toffee, butterscotch notes, and a mild graham cracker, sponge toffee, cookie breadness aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a soft grainy raw, toasted, biscuity, caramelized malt character, with some light flowery grassy, leafy hop accents upfront, and some cookie, graham cracker, toffee undertones, leading towards a biscuity malt, lingering hop grassy, citrusy bitterness finish.

PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2010
Pint on tap at the brew pub. Pours a pale golden with the perfect amount of head. The aroma was cereal, biscut exactely what i was expecting for an English style Pale ale. The hops were there on the palate but did not over whelm. Over all this is an excellent Montreal brewed Englsh Pale Ale.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2009
In short: A well balanced ale with toasted biscuity malts and mild leafy hops. Godd session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden body topped by a long-lasting small off-white head
In long: The light nose is leafy hops and a bit tangy. Unsurprisingly the taste offers a lot of cookies, very biscuity malts to say the least. Toasted cookies, a bit of caramel, some citrus fruits, spicy leafy hops, mild bitterness. Quite nourishing, this is not just a pint of juicy hops. A well balanced beer that is more about drinkability than intensity. Nothing spectacular here but I could drink that beer until I start showing my genitals to everybody.

Lubiere (10455) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2009
A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, strong grainy malt and mashed peas. In mouth, a light biscuitty malt with clean hops, a bit of vegetal notes, not bad, but boring. On tap at brewpub, Dec. 5 2009, No Habs no.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Beautiful biscuity malts benefit from toffee-like brethren flavors, building a cushiony body balanced by orangey and leafy hops for a very appropriately named Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty copper.
-The hops also offer tea notes, as well as levelled leafy bitterness.
-The mouthfeel is finely sculpted; soft, comfortably effervescent, with a few dextrinous love handles.
-This is as drinkable as can be for such a malt-driven pint.

On tap at the brewpub a few times.

[on tap at brewpub] Slight lychee aroma with some biscuity malt and citrusy hops. Clear orange amber under a lacy, off-white film. Pleasant biscuity malt flavour with gentle noble hops that are fruity and an appropritely subtle bitterness. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, very slight bitter finish.
