Ah yes the plowman’s ale. This one was good. Smells of flowers, tastes plummier than your average amber ale. Nice and fresh, I hope to drink this again in the summer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the LCBO thanks to czar, dated 2014/MAY/8. Pours a strong golden/light copper with a huge foamy white head that leaves fluffy lacing. Nose is of earthy hops and lightly metallic, you can even smell the carbonic acid I think. Taste is moderately bitter and dry, offers more carbonic bite and not much else. Some caramel, earthy/woody/strawy hops and that’s about it. Body is medium and carbonation way too high and problematic. There is some light grain husk in the finish along with some soapy and almost harsh bitterness. I didn’t have much expectations and this beer didn’t even try to reach them. Or maybe it’s the horrible label? Blah.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière cuivrée à la mousse rare, au nez sucré de raisins et de malts caramel ; assez mince, et limpide. La bouche est sucrée dans les mêmes tons, avec un effet de boisé qui persiste longtemps, avec des noisettes en finale. Un genre de rousse qui a l’avantage de son originalité et du certain tranchant de ses houblons, mais qui lasse assez vite avec ses notes parfois bizarres. Correcte, fort acceptable même, mais loin d’un grand cru.

Bottle bought at Champanes,
this ale poured a red, orange, peach color into the glass and had a little haze, the pour gave a nice faint off-white cover that was lasting and left nice spots of lacing on the glass,
the nose had toasted malt, faint fruit that was pear like, a little citrus hops, malt sweetness with a hint of caramel,
the flavors were similar to the aroma, the finish had a light hop bitterness,
the mouth feel was light and creamy with average carbonation,
this beer had a nice flavor and nose of toasted malt, light hops and malt sweetness, a nice drink.

Sample at Volo IPA Challenge. Pours a deep amber with a large off-white head that recedes eventually to a ring. Aroma is slightly sweet, good floral hop notes. Taste is much the same but with a good malt back and a pleasingly bitter finish. Solid and well crafted.

Not bad this is one of my favourites from the brewery. Clean brown with light head. Aroma has some sweet malts and a bit of breadiness to it. Flavour is a little buttery and like fresh white bread but it has a nice amout of bitter to it. Medium body.
