Lubiere (10165) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2009
A golden ale with a thin white head. A strong grainy malt aroma with earthy nutty notes, like unroasted coffee beans, and a bit of oxidation. In mouth, a grainy sweet malt with light honey notes, light grassy hops, oily, a bit cloying, some nuttyness develops later. 2.39$ bottle from Grand Duc.

Bottle. Pours a just hazy golden amber with a medium sized white head. Faint light citrus aromas. Thin to medium bodied, lightly sweet, a little grassy.. Finishes with a very light bitterness. Nothing overly interesting, but drinkable.

blankboy (6150) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2009
Draught at Les Brasseurs De Montréal, Montréal, QC. Pours a clear yellow with a small semi-lasting white head. Mild grainy aroma along with some light grassy hops. Flavour’s also mild and follows the aroma. Average bodied. It’s a bit dull but it’s reasonably well done for the style.

probstblueribbon (2944) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2009
341 ml bottle in a 12-pack from Trappe a Fromage, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. JN25/09.

App.: Clear golden with a decent white foam. Aroma: Some light cereal/grain, kinda fruity (apples), just slightly vegetal. Palate: Medium body, very soft carbonation, smooth. Flav.: Similar to the nose with some grain/cereal, more fruity than the nose – apples and oranges, citrus, a bit Belgian; dry with basically no bitterness.

Pretty nice for a light beer.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Pale blonde colour. Thick white head. Aroma is very light. Fresh and lightly bready. A bit of light herbal hoppiness. A little bit of floral zestiness, but this is quite light. A bit biscuity. Pretty simple.
