ruigo (1027) - PORTUGAL - JUL 4, 2014
33cl bottle kindly from Beer City. Pours a pale brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma is pine, resin, caramel, grassy and slightly wood. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more bitter than sweet but with strange notes of metallic and hoppy notes. Overall, a drinkable beer but a bit unbalanced and with odd flavours.

kaser (2540) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle in Montreal from store at condo red pour. White head. Eating spicy salsa with it so this could be off. Like a red ale. Bitter and malty. Not bad and expected better

RickTheRick (335) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Une IPA qui n’est pas digne ce nom, cette interprétation présente un visuel ambré avec une mousse assez imposante qui dure. Un nez très sucré et caramélisé ne laisse aucune place ou presque au houblon. Pourtant, une amertume assez soutenue en bouche détonne au travers de tout ce malt caramélisé et ce sucre. Pour faire une histoire courte, c’est horrible.

wolffish (168) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Rien d’exceptionnel mais c’est une IPA très respectable. Ça fait quelques années qu’elle est là et elle est encore bonne ;-)

Kupferfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig fruchtig, hopfig. Geschmack hopfig fruchtig, malzig, exotische Früchte.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 1, 2014
Brown body, thin head. Vegetable, resin, woody hops, biscuit body, not so nice. Taste is odd, with a sharp yet not big bitterness and cheap malt feel. Not awesome. Don’t like the mouth feel at all. (33cl bottle from Beer City)

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
341 mL Bottle. Gold-copper body with a frothy off-white head settling to a wispy film coating the sides of the glass. Intense resiny grapefruit rind hops dominate over the sweet pale malts with a hint of treacle. Flavor of sweet light malts with an aftertaste of treacle and then intense resiny grapefruit rind hops move in for the finish. This is another example of a style of beer I am very fond of; call it beer nepotism, call it whatever. A bit light of body but no slouch for flavor.

Frothmeister (546) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours a clear caramel colour with a beige head. Smells like a British ale (almost like London Pride), caramel, light vanilla, and light resinous hops. Taste wise, it’s also similar to London Pride, but with an overbearing whack of mineral heavy / resinous hops that bury the caramel malt notes. Underneath the hops there’s a pretty decent beer, but the bitterness is slightly harsh, and a little clumsy. Dial back the hops, and you would have yourself one kickass Canadian bitter here.

ametras (341) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
341ml bottle. Clear amber with a off-white frothy head. Aroma is toffee with piney and citrusy notes. Taste is caramel, citrus, bread, earthy hops and toasted malts. Medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture.
