Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2004
Clear shining yellow. Low carbonation manages an honest foamy and sticky white head. Field aroma, straw, hay spicy hops... Comes out peachy and orangey with grapefruity hops. Refreshing on the tongue. Mild alcohol warming. Slight grain touch. Less sharp and fresh than Rogue’s but spicier. They’re obviously of similar origins. Creamy body, smooth carbonation. Gentle bitterness, floral. I’d much rather have a light and crisp helles and am definitely not a fan of imperialised blond lager, but what fool wouldn’t welcome a rarity.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
Mondial de la Bière de Montréal 2005. Robe blonde-dorée. Alcool tout en douceur. Beaucoup de malt, beaucoup de houblon. Très bien.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Draught at the brewpub
Amber, light head, nice lacing. Nose of light hops, some creamy malts and sweet flavor. It’s very nice and balanced, not much alcohol and plenty of malty fruit. Bien!

Metalchopz (2121) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
Originally rated November 2008. Enjoyed at the brewpub itself. Poured a golden-copper colour with a small white head that left a ring of lace. Hardly any carbonation. The nose was quite hoppy with some grain malts in the background. Watery mouthfeel. The taste had this very bitter hop resulting in some dryness in the back of the throat, and some wetness at the tip of the tongue. Overall, quite a kick of hoppy flavours. Very interesting style, that I am trying for the first time. Probably, could not enjoy two in a row of these though.

Lanchester (182) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2011
341 ml Bottle. Pours a deep golden hue topped with a quickly diminishing off-white head; minimal spotty lacing around the glass. Aroma is a rich blend of cereals and floral hops, an enticing matrimony. Notes of honey and fruits linger about also. Flavor is quite hop-forward, prominent spicy and resinous character tapers off to a grainy sweetness and a lasting bitter finish. Lower carbonation lends a smoothness on the palate and a medium body supports the flavors quite well. Why have a regular Pilsner when you can have an Imperial one?

godofsky (264) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
on tap at brewpub. light amber with a nice fluffy white head. strong aroma of biscuit and bread. taste has a great malt profile, with hints of caramel and rye bread. very clean tasting, alcohol barely seems barely there even at the advertised 8.5%. light bodied, medium carb. i’m not a huge fan of lagers in general, but this is an excellent beer.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2011
On tap at the Blind Tiger for their Dieu du Ciel event. Pours a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Sweet malt, a bit of brown sugar, caramel and toast. Big and sweet, a good amount of candy and sweet light malt. Spicy alcohol on the finish, warm bitter grains and dusty noble hops.

Bottle thanks to Crusianbeer. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma of faint vegitable, nice big earthy hop profile, very malty and spicy. Flavor much the same and kinda sweet. Medium body with medium high carbonation. Solid brew!
