COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ispirata alle classiche Ale Americane, questa birra di colore ambrato carico e dalla schiuma persistente, mette subito in mostra il suo carattere, esibendo giŗ al naso pungenti note agrumate e resinose tipiche del luppolo Cascade. In bocca Ť un trionfo di caramello, con un netto finale amarognolo . Per palati forti.. non puÚ lasciarvi indifferenti Amber beer inspired by English bitter, and a strong American "cascade" hop, Lilith is clear with light beige, dense and persistent froth. The fresh fruity citrus scent gives it a taste of grapefruit and resin, balanced with appealing candied malts and a bitter final to leave your mouth dry and clean, ready for further sips. An arrogant beer, but also delicate and refreshing.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Judiciously caramelized malts and citrusy hop varietals gel into a flavorful treat, rendered more complex by a levelled earthy hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy russet.
-The hoppy nose is also quite leafy.
-The smooth bubbling and cushy body make for a mildly nourishing brew.
-The malt flavors are very well extracted here.

Bottle.

Bottle 750ml. @ home.

Clear medium to dark amber orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, keller, light to moderate hoppy, orange, mango, moderate yeasty, leather, earthy notes. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, nutty - leather, peppery spicy. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. Very easy to drink and gets better and better the more you get of it .. [20100521]

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Mario.
Hazy Amber with a good light beige head. Really good American hoppage aroma with a twist of Belgian yeast. Hints of leather, tobacco and cheese too. Really well balanced in the mouth. A little too yeasty if Iím gonna complain but the hops are really good and the base malt works well and the always enjoyable, Bruton characteristic hint of orange is quite clear. Easy drinking, interesting and good all round. Just like the rest of their beers.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2010
Hazy light amber coloured beer with almost no carbonation and a short off-white head. Hoppy light herby hinted aroma. Medium creamy palate. FInish is medium, some stronger bitter hints and light herby touches. Balanced but medium.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2010
750ml bottle from a private order. Popped the cork on this, and lost about half the bottle to foam. Odd too, because it sat in my cellar for a month before I opened it. Luckily, I had read some of the reviews on here first, and others had mentioned similar experiences, so I opened it over the sink, just in case. Glad I did. What was left pours a cloudy amber, and looks and smells all the world like a typical belgian ale. Not sure where the APA designation comes from.

manuchampions (1237) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2010
750ml bottle at Volo (thanks Ralph). Dark brown/reddish color with optimal head, good volume. Aromas with fruity notes, Belgian yeast and dried flowers. Good crisp taste in mouth. Harmonious, good structure, a bitter and an alcoholic finish that lingers but doesnít overwhelm. Decent but tasted like it might have been past its prime.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty dark beige color ale with a super large off-white foamy head with great retention and some pretty good lacing. Aroma of light bitter citrus notes with some light funky ester. Taste is also a unique mix between some huge bready malt with hints of funky ester and light citrus bitter hops. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation. Not a typical APA per say but more of a mix between a light funky Belgian ale with some American hops. I am not sure I would have this very often at this price point it but very interesting nonetheless.
