3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle. Pretty standard beer look, gold/amber, filtered, moderate white head. Aroma and taste are mostly hay and grapefruit hops. Body is pretty average, maybe a bit more oily than some. Overall, more hop bitterness in this than I was expecting for the style, but that was not unwelcome.

Deep clear gold pour with a medium sized creamy foam head. Nose of clean hop and caramel. Not malt liqour-like. Chocolate, nutty biscuit malts. Tasted fresh bread. A slight grit. Some burnt notes and light medicine hop. Comes out with heavier caramel and molases burnt sugar bitterness in the end.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle. Pours clear light amber with a finger of white head that wastes away to a ring pretty quick. There’s a real sweet impression with some grain and a nice noble hop sort of character. A little rough on the palate with a full body and fair booziness. That same sweet impression manifests on the palate with a bit of grain and a fair hop presence.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Verre de 6 oz, d’un fût lors du 10e anniversaire. Arômes de houblon floral et herbeux. Robe cuivrée, fine effervescence. Très croustillante et fine en bouche, le malt légèrement sucré mène à une finale amère de houblon herbeux et floral. L’alcool donne un léger côté sirupeux à la bière, sans être globalement très présent. Un coup de coeur !

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft during RBSG visit, weak malt aroma with hints of apricot and toast coming from a cloudy orange body with a off white head. lots of sweet caramel malts in the flavor, bits of toast again and some honey and grass at the end. a very easy to drink beer with a sweet malty finish and a medium body.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Alcohol is sticking out at first with notes of cereal. After we get the malted notes of sugar cane, caramel and cherry and blackcurrant that are coating it all. Kind of a good complex nose that is sticking out just right.
Appearance: Creamy average head, sticking to glass and leaving a fair lacing. Gold color and average sparkling.
Taste: Delicacy and ’’finesse’’ would be the words to describe the attack, with notes of caramel, cherry and blackcurrant. Very malty attack. This would be the perfect example of a full creamy body. Notes of cereal like barley and oatmeal are also present. Finish is subtly hoppy which makes it a characteristic superior quality pilsner.
