COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Légère et rafraîchissante, notre Ale blonde présente des saveurs maltées et légèrement fruitées, balancées par des arômes floraux de houblons nobles. Elle se marie aussi bien à la pizza de déménagement qu’aux fromages les plus fins.

Blonde clair et limpide. Peu de collet. Nez: faible. métallique. Houblon. Savon. Bouche: légère. Une peu madérisé. Houblon florale. Savon. Fine effervescence. Un peu âcre en finale. Légèrement fruité. Pomme. Je crois qu'elle est un peu vieille. Cependant pas décevante si on oubli le petit côté métallique.

A nicely hopped beer. An IPA for days you don’t want a hop assault nor a malt assault. Very good summer drinkability. Lots of head.

lesifflebiere (1208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
Légèrement trouble, cette blonde dorée mince offre des arômes de céréales plutôt puissants, ainsi qu’un peu de maïs sucré. Au goût, elle évoque les blondes houblonnées un peu sucrées, assez dynamiques et rafraîchissantes. Un peu aqueuse, elle a cependant cette petite amertume qui la rachète. En tant que bière "de base" de cette brasserie qui nous as habitués à plus complexe, c’est une réussite du genre. Bref, elle atteint son but de bière de soif, mais elle ne suscite pas les passions.

Minderbinder (1695) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours blond with low white head. Aroma is of malt, hop. Taste is the same. Palate: ligth body. Overall: Not a very interesting beer, but it does the job. Interesting sligth hops. Not my favorite from Dunham.

AlainG (1141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Blonde coiffée d’une mousse persistante qui se colle au verre afin de lui laisser une dentelle minimale. Au nez, les arômes fraîches de malt et de houblon réussissent, avec leur côté minimaliste, à me charmer. Le goût est tout aussi typique que ses autres caractéristiques, avec des saveurs fruitées, florales et houblonnées. Il y a une texture minérale qui complète bien son processus de séduction.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
341ml from Duchesse d’aiguillon.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with small white foamy head.
Aroma : Honey notes with light malt. Herbal hops.
Taste : Honey with malt and some herbal hops. Finish herbal with honey. Moderate bitterness. Light spicy hops.
Palate : Soft carbonation.
Overall : Slightly boring and uneventful. Not much defects that I can detect. Cleanly brewed just not very flavorful. Decent but nothing worth having again.

dandeman (491) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
Aroma: A bit malty with notes of coriander but very unpleasant sour accent. Appearance: Hazy straw with greenish accents. Head is creamy and long lasting with nice lacing. Taste: Attack is malty with notes of butter biscuits. Hops are taking place after and we can feel the sparkling and refreshing taste. A good carbonation. Despite the sour nose this ale is pleasant, well balanced and refreshing. Good bitterness; almost a pale ale.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Polished pale malts sign this Golden Ale’s flavor profile, leading the way for leafy hop resins and their deft bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam tops the misty blond.
-The pale malts are ever-so-slightly toasted and quite aromatic.
-The hop bitterness might surprise a few unsuspecting drinkers at the pub, but if you know Dunham brews, there would be no surprise at all.
-More aromatic hops could enhance the overall experience.
-This is not a brew that’s going to score well on Ratebeer, but its nicely extracted malt flavors still make it stand out within its category.
-The hop finish is a tad vegetal at times.

On tap at Vices et Versa.

Eructoblaster (2957) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Blond body with a fair, lasting white frothy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with spicy and flowery hints. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste with grainy and piney notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Very enjoyable blond ale.
