Bouteille 500ml. De couleur ambrée-cuivrée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucré et légèrement rôtis, moyen de caramel, léger de pain, de biscuits et de houblon herbeux aux notes florales ainsi que des traces de noixc et de sucre brun. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux et une texture légèrement crémeuse. Faibles notes fruitées (agrumes, traces de raisins) et accompagné d’un goût de grains de malt très légèrement rôtis lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de caramel, un léger goût de biscuits et des notes de pain. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon en arrière-goût , d’abord floral puis peu à peu plus herbreux, et ce jusqu’en finale, où l’on y décèle quelques notes de noix asséchantes. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec des traces de rôti et de noix.

500ml bottle. Orangy mahogany with a nice off white head. Toasted and somewhat artificially sweet malts, caramel, grainy, some candy and white sugar notes. Mild body and moderate carbonation, somewhat sweet, malty and doughy, becomes quite dry.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle picked up at the Waterdown LCBO. Pours a clear brown colour, that is rather bubbly, has a white head that recedes to a thin sheet and a touch of lacing. Smells of caramel and a touch of malt. Tastes malty and a little sweet with a bit of bitterness.

Eructoblaster (3842) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle - 500ml. Amber body with an average white foamy head. Boring malty/hoppy aroma with grainy hints. Taste carries grainy, brown sugar, and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2012 500 ml bottle into pint glass. Rich golden orange/ruby colour with lasting white head. Strong caramel malt aroma with some smoke and nuttiness. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. Sweeter than I was expecting but also more complex. I tasted some vanilla, some dark berry, some toffee in layers. Long, satisfying finish that wraps with a hint of hoppy bitterness.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
500 mL Bottle. Deep amber, almost reddish body with a foamy off-white head that settles to a thin but tenacious layer leaving lots of lace. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, intensely sweet-malty with a note of resiny hops; if I hadn’t seen the label I would "accuse" it to be an English pub ale by aroma alone. The flavor screams "English pub" with sweet and toasted malts dominating, hops show up in the aftertaste and linger with that unmistakeable British character. Smooth in the mouth. A Brit you don’t have to send to the UK for.
