Lubiere (10452) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2008
A nice amber lager with a nice persistant creamy white head. A pleasant nutty maple malt aroma. In mouth, a very nutty crisp malt with sustained sweet caramel, cereals, some metallic notes. A very grainy cereal Vienna. Medium bodied. On tap at Brouhaha, May 2008.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Toasted caramel maltiness and earthy hops provide balance and drinkability in this otherwise unmemorable Vienna.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear amber.
-The flavor profile is clean and seems to cater to neophyte crowds.
-The finish is decently bitter, yet should not scare away newbies to craft beer.

On tap at Vices et Versa.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2008
Objectively speaking: Approachable bready/toasty lager which did not quite charm me as much as the blonde.
I like: Absolutely clean, fresh and bright. Highly drinkable, light-bodied.
I dislike: Feeble leafy/tea reminiscent hops fail to captivate. Not very crisp, it does not pull you into a second pint.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2008
In short: A heavily caramelized lager. Nothing standing out here. Decent.
How: Tap at Vices & Versa
The look: Clear golden copper body with a large but quickly diminishing white head.
In long: Chewy body full of juicy caramel upfront. Light fruity notes of apple juice and some citrus fruits. Overall impression of taking a bite from a fresh crust-less white bread with liquid caramel while taking a sip from a carbonated apple juice. As the beer warmed up a biscuit flavour started to come out. Again that oily/boiled white eggs that I’m the only to get from lagers. Dry leafy hops, medium length finish mixing dry grass and caramel. This is quite few steps down from their excellent blonde lager I had a few months ago. It also has nothing to do with the amber lagers I was drinking in Czech Republic. Yep, this is quite far from a fresh Czech Republic amber lager. About 4000 miles far to be more precise.

robinvboyer (3259) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
on tap at the brewpub. Clear amber pour with a good amount of head. Aroma of caramel malts, and some grains. Flavor was full bodied, and had more of the caramel malts with some subtle hops in the finish, a solid lager.

Quevillon (2548) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2008
Bu en fut (20 oz) a Vices et Versa, le 19/5/08. Rousse claire, moyen collet avec de la denteille. Arome de malte caramelisé doux, céréal crèmeux. Goût moitier sucré crèmeux, moitier amère, céréal malté. Facile à boire!

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2011
12oz on tap at brewpub.
Appearance : Clear amber with a small white head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Light caramel and grain. Adjunct and floral hops.
Taste : Grain and light caramel. A bit mineral. Finish dry grain. Soft carbonation.
Overall : Nothing very interesting. I expected that such a nice brewery would at least try to make their amber lager something worthy but they won’t.

En fût au Saint-Pub à Charlevoix. Couleur ambrée légèrement orangée. Arôme de caramel et malt. Goût de malt grillé et finale légèrement caramélisée et notes de fruits. Arrière-goût doux et sans amertume. Bonne.
