2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ La Voie Maltée (Québec). Clear golden with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is mild with cereals, herbal notes and light sweetness. Taste is about the same. Body is light (weak) and watery. Decent carbonation. Not bad for a Pale Lager... but still a pale lager.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Couleur jus de pommes, pâle et invitante. Odeurs fruitées. En bouche, le produit est bien dosé entre le malté et le fruité. Pétillement moyen. Soupçon de sel en post-goût alors que les autres saveurs s’évanouissent. Une belle bière de terrasse.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally rated October 2006. Sampled at the pub itself, in Jonquière, Quebec. Poured a golden-blonde colour with good lacing all around, but no carbonation. Mild perfume of fruit as the aroma, with very light farm odour (which are actually not offensive). Slight citrus start with a good cereal taste, a crisp finish and a dry aftertaste. Nice refreshing grainy blond ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 Any first impressions?
-A foam screen dissipates into the very pale, clear golden.
-A vacuous aroma disappoints with its few cereals and absent hopping.
-Tame citrus fruit and basic cereal sweetness make up an unassuming flavor profile.
-Its body is decently constructed and softly carbonated.
What if you dig deeper?
-The nearly-empty finish offers but a few white bread-like, starchy cereals.
-This is definitely lacking in hoppiness (although some grassiness is found), but that is surely intentional; this is the house blond for those uncles who (perhaps unknowingly) dared to enter a brewpub.
-Honeyed sweetness develops some bubblegummy notes.
-This is no Germaine, or Cerna Hora, that’s for sure.
-This was a cleanly-brewed replacement for macro lovers, a boring pint for those looking for crafty lagers. Nothing wrong about it, nothing great about it. I’d also like to know if this is truly a lager. I have a feeling it’s more of a generic blond ale than a helles.
A couple of times, on tap at the brewpub.
