3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal). Nice amber body topped with a decent off-white frothy head. Very pleasant hoppy/herbal aroma with grainy, fruity and yeasty notes. Taste offers flavors of fresh hops plus some spicy notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. pretty good stuff! Too bad it is only available during the Mondial...

Thriving straw and grass lift the oranges and miscellaneous leaves. Milky sweetness and herbal hoppiness welcome the grain.
Freshly-cut grass offers a pleasant bitterness. A dry, hoppy ending is predicted and given, preceded by clean malt sweetness and white pepper-like spiciness. Quite laid back and pleasantly medium-flavored, perfect for a session.
Lazy trainspotting, yet smiling contently all the while.
