COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brune au miel

Dans l’Égypte ancienne, on croyait que les abeilles naissaient des larmes du dieu soleil Râ. Le miel y fut utilisé pour aromatiser et donner une valeur divine ou curative à plusieurs breuvages et aliments. Il y a plus de 5 000 ans, les Égyptiens brassaient déjà une bière à base de céréales à laquelle du miel était souvent ajouté. C’est en l’honneur de l’Égypte ancienne et des larmes de leur dieu soleil que nous avons créé la Nectareüs. Avec ses notes de miel de fleurs sauvages et de céréales légèrement grillées, notre brune au miel est savoureuse, et possède une amertume douce et une finale maltée, légèrement sucrée.

The Ancient Egyptians believed that bees were born from the tears of the sun god Ra. They used honey to flavor and provide divine or curative value to several foods and drinks. More than 5000 years ago, Egyptians were already making grain-based beer to which honey was often added. It is in honour of ancient Egypt and the tears of their sun god that we created the Nectareüs. With its wildflower honey notes and lightly toasted grain flavour, our tasty honey brown ale has a mild bitterness and a malty sweet finish.

One of the better honey beers that I’ve ever had. Aroma is slightly sweet honey mixed with grain. Taste is more on the sweet side with earthy honey and the slight caramel of the malt mixing well. Overall a bit on the sweeter side but very enjoyable.

Beardbeerman (329) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2015
Pours hazy amber topped by a finger of beige head showing average retention but leaving good lacing. Vivid micro carbonation spotted through the copper highlights. The nose is sweet, toffee, honey, caramel malts and some earthy hops. The taste is semi sweet, earthy. Medium body with an oily feel. Medium earthy finish with a touch of sweetness of molasses and dark fruits. Cheers!

Spab (3231) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
500 ml bottle from St. Nicholas Metro. Pours an orange-tinged darkish brown with modest-sized light tan head with good retention. Aroma is rather sweet with lots of caramel, some honey, dark fruit, toast and flowers. Flavour is also on the sweet side with big caramel, plum and honey with toasted graininess offering some balance and a gentle floral note. Mouthfeel is a little sticky. Nice.

Apparence: D?une couleur caramel foncé pratiquement opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt caramélisé et aux notes de miel. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est des saveurs de malt caramélisé. Finale de durée moyenne, avec pratiquement aucune effervescence et une légère amertume. Fiche technique Style: Brown Ale Format: 500 ml Taux d?alcool : 6,5% Température: 8°C

HippyHop (594) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
Pour is a pretty, light-catching brown with a two finger cap that’s gone in a hurry. Nose is, predictably lots of honey and caramel, brown/burnt sugar, plums/dark fruit, toasted grains, molasses. Taste-wise it’s sweet and slightly syrupy without being cloying. And the finish is just dry enough to make this surprisingly drinkable. Nice.

Pours a medium brown with a small beige head that disappears quite readily and leaves some lacing. Nose is of honey and quite strangely some alcohol. Some light toffee impressions, too. Taste is quite sweet but not cloying, offers caramel, honey and toasted cereals. Again, a little boozy for a 6.5% brew. Moderately bitter. Body is medium, carbonation moderately low and mouthfeel a little sticky. Overall an OK beer, I won’t be back.
