Light and watery, a touch of corn with very little hop character. Not a ton of carbonation.

Tricker (332) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bière ambrée de 5.3 % d’alcool. Elle ne possède aucun col au versement. Elle possède un nez amer et de moufette. Elle possède un goût céréalier et prenant, comme si je buvais une bière brune. Elle a cette particularité d’amertume en finale caractéristique à une IPA. Bonne !

Not much hop in aroma. Some malt. Beer is a faded amber with very little head. Doesn’t taste much like an IPA or a pale ale. Pretty boring. Kind of metallic, somewhat of a bitter finish. Not a really good beer.

Minderbinder (2595) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle 341ml. Pours deep golden/amber with medium-high creamy beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of grain, malt, caramel, lime, citrus. Taste is of grain, malt, caramel, sugar, rocket fuel, alcohol, bitterness, lime, citrus. Palate: Heavy carbonation. Light-medium body. Overall: This one is actually bitter, wich is surprising. Alcohol not well hidden at all, and a cheap beer grain aftertaste is present.

Bue au bureau pour le repas de Noël. Elle est un peu mieux que la Silver Creek, mais ce n’est pas des plus extraordinaire. Elle est plus belle, de couleur dorée. Un fumet d’herbe mouillée qui est dans un costume de houblon et essaie de prolonger la supercherie jusqu’en bouche, alors que tout ce que je goûte est un faible goût de malt et un autre de sirop de maïs.

Dark golden colour. Strong malt aroma and taste. Quite a lot of caramel, not a lot of hop. Slightly rough feel but not a bad drink. It’s just not value for money when buying in the UK.

Keg @ Cask, Manchester [171013]
Amber, clear, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma - soft sweet light caramel malt, tourn of corn, slight skunk, not great
Taste if quite malty, malt extract in here, soft bitter hop, just mass produced flavoured
Palate - Medium carb, light body. FInish as main flavour, malt, corn, sweet corn pale malt
Overall - Much more a lager, nothing like an ipa. Poor.
