COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ahhh! English bitters! A very popular style in British pubs. They are easy to drink and highly thirst quenching with their slightly malty and hoppy dry profile. Our rye version brings a unique flavour to the blend to which the English hops Golding and Fuggle are added. La Seiglerie offers the typical bitter’s slight maltiness, with spicy flavours introduced by a good amount of malted rye. Dry hopping brings a floral finish without much bitterness. I’ll have another one, me lad!

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
A hazed amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a sweet biscuit malt with rye and vegetal notes, and light cinnamon notes. In mouth, sweet grainy malt with light British hop, a bit of metallic rye notes, a bit off. On tap at St-Graal, Nov. 25 2012.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Floral hops and spicy rye develop a delicate profile for this dry and bubbly session ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the hazy pale amber.
-Carbonation feels forced, which it shouldn’t for this type of brew, imho.
-Drinkability is very high, which I love.
-Light doughy sugars are found here and there.
-Hops contribute light earthy bitterness too.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2013
Bouteille 50cl. Cuivrée, col épais crémeux blanc cassé. Arôme est légèrement houblonné, note de malt pils caramel avec un bouquet grains, seigle sur pointe d’épicé. Palais est légèrement amer, malté sur bonne effervescence. Grains modéré avec un seigle qui reste subtil et une fine pointe de levure en fin de bouche. Le seigle garde son profil habituel et ce côté épicé grandit au fur et à mesure restant assez long en fin de bouche. Amertume reste modérée et dans un style noble européen - ici anglais. A seulement 4%, facile à déguster.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light dry caramel malt with a dry floral hoppy finish. Taste is dominated by dry caramel malt with wonderful floral hoppy notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Rye notes are not that dominant by hoppy floral finish is really great – I wish I had access to more 4% ABV beer that are so flavourful.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
Bouteille de 500ml. bière dorée avec une mousse blanche. Au nez les effluves sont simples mais efficaces, avec des notes d’épices .La bouche est bien épicée, agréable, facile, légère mais elle ne manque pas de goût. Un bon produit où le seigle est à l’avant plan.
