Un arôme de malt sucré avec un peu de citron. Le goût est plus faible que l’odeur. On parle pas d’une bière beaucoup plus goûteuse qu’une Molson Dry. Mince et trop pétillante à pour mon goût en bouche, on discerne une touche de sucre et c’est pas mal tout. Le mieux qu’on puisse dire c’est que ça ne go^^ute pas mauvais, mais ça ne gopute pas grand chose.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light cornish and slight grassy. Bitter, light malty and vague cornish flavoured. Medium dry and bitter finish.

Golden blond ale with minimal head. Traces of spice aromas. Mainly malt taste. Unbalanced

czar (4152) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
on tap at brewpub. clear golden with a decent white head, good lacing and retention. cereals, grainy, decent malts but a little watery. very fruity. decent hops to balance the hint of sweetness. light body. refreshing but such a harsh carbonation.

I feel slightly inclined to write part of this review in French, since it’s Montrealaise, but I’ll just be on the Anglo-side of the city and stay en Anglais. Crisp, clear slightly orange golden blonde coloured body with a large, thick off-white head that leaves a lace on the glass. Aroma of fresh malt, light hops, citrus, a bit of caster sugar and some very mild coriander seed freshness. Light-bodied; Fresh malt flavour with some very subtle corn and yeast with an odd fake-sugar sweetness. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, but left mostly mild from the lack of real flavours and complexity. Overall, not such a great beer, but perhaps good and fresh when the weather is very hot - when is that in Montreal?!? I sampled this 341 mL bottle purchased from Marche Des Saveurs in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for CA$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 24-January-2011.

Aroma has soft malt hints. There’s little head, and a weak orange body. Flavour is a smooth hoppy lager taste. Smooth mouthfeel. It’s drinkable and simple.

DerWeg (1486) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle PELUSO - pours clear gold tinge of copper. Smell-wise, I’ll go with the ketchup chips comment, weird acidic tomato and stale potato aromas, grainy. Taste is also a bit grainy but has some pale sweet fruit, swirling bitter hop middle thru finish. Can’t say if its corn-like but definitely chewing on some cereal flakes here. This is a gritty kitty drank from bottle, and I was almost digging the beers fresh at the pub. Two beers from these guys I pour in the sink today! Hope you Ontario fish like it.

sseb69 (1481) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
Bouteille 341 ml. 5%. Couleur jaune assez pâle. Claire mousse blanche. Arôme de malt et houblon. En bouche, légèrement sucrée, notes de maïs et malt. Finale sana amertume. Bonne et rafraîchissante.

Bendrixian (1071) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
pours on the lighter side. aroma of light malts and higher phenols like corn mash and ketchup chips. flavours are fast, light, crisp. There isn’t a whole lot happening but it is not that offensive. more light malt notes and mostly just an average brew.

Atheist_Peace (928) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
341ml bottle. Pours slightly cloudy bright yellow. with a white head and little lacing. Nose is very heavy on cereal grain that follows through on the palate in an unpleasant way. Not only bland, but semi-offensive to the senses.
