[Ste.-Catherine St., Montreal] Clear (almost) straw with a nice, white ring which generated good lacing. Malty sweet aroma with a pleasant, fresh noble hops aroma. Very fresh and malty flavour, with hopping reminiscent of a continental pilsner. A little lingering bitterness. Light body with moderate carbonation. Better than what I expected, but really nothing special.

well, I was suprised. Most of the brewpubs around would make the blond a canadian ale, but this tastes of eastern europ. Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with a THICK head and seious lacings. Aroma is of wheat, and bubble gum yeast, with thin grassy notes. Mouthfeel is a little sandy with heavy sediment. Flavour is dominated by grassy sweet malt and bubble gum yeast, with undertones of clove, sour wheat, herbal, and very green bitter hops. Aftertaste is a little acidic, bubblegum, dry yeast, followed by a fresh dry citrus finish. Very fresh, very clean, and fairly well balanced, but alltogether unremarkable. Cheers

Draught at the brewpub in Montreal
Pale blonde color, nice head, lots of lacing, tons of yeast sediment. Nose of sour wheat, starchy and moist. The flavor is malty, citric, acidulous and meaty from all the yeast. Finishes balanced, fresh would be an understatement, more like green.

SpringsLicker (3191) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2005
On tap Montreal Large head of white topping a light yellow beer. Light malt aroma and flavor but largely unremarkable. Light watery drinkable. If you like Gordon Biersch or Hops beers, you’ll like this one.

CapFlu (4659) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
(Draught) Sampled at Les 3 Brasseur in Montreal. Very clear and lemony body with white sediment scattered across the bottom of the glass. Nose of a Belgian Wit? Nice webbing on the side of the glass. Mildly malty, wheaty with citrus and mild herbs.

TaktikMTL (6168) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2004
Verre de dégustation à la brasserie (Établissement de Montréal). Arôme: Odeur d’houblon et de fruit. Apparence: Couleur blonde très pâle. Carbonisation moyenne. Très petit col qui forme une dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût très fruité avec une légère touche d’agrume. Palette: Aucune amertume avec un léger arrière goût. Mince en bouche et désaltérante. (Rating #43)

2011-09-05, draught at the brewpub in Lille, 6-3-6-2-12=29
Hazy blond color; creamy head. It has a light but delicate hoppy aroma. Mild malt flavor, dry, with some unmalted cereals; correct bitterness, but the structure gets weaker and weaker. Reasonably drinkable.

2004-10-30, draught at Les 3 Brasseurs Saint-Priest (Lyon), 3-2-4-2-7=18
Cloudy blond color. Poor lager, a bit smelly, like any other mainstream bottled one.

Montreal. Faint hops in the nose, light yellow, tiny head. Taste of mild hops and crackers. Light bodied, refreshing. Pretty good.
