3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper, with a finger of strong, thick head. Fresh and grainy smell, I’m pretty sure the hops were Saaz, grassy and herbal. Pretty darn malty for a lager, it tasted like lightly browned toast with caramel spread on top. Carbonation was creamy smooth and finished off softly bitter. Not my favorite at this pub, but yet again another excellent offering from Montreal’s lager masters.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught 6/3/2005 at the brewpub with tiggmtl, Muzzlehatch and Bret Kuhnhenn. Copper-yellow with some darker amber tinges to it. Off-white head recedes to a ring, slight lacing. Honey and caramel in the nose with some baked brown bread. Good hops apparency in both the nose and flavor. Nice crisp, floral saaz hops, lightly bitter. Notes of peaches, earthiness from the yeast and plenty of hops flavor in the middle and end. Low carbonation, big bubbles though. Medium body, well-balanced and quite enjoyable. This style has grown on me quite a bit recently.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ambrée tirant sur le brun, parsemé d’une mousse blanche concassée adhérant partiellement ŕ la paroi du verre. Timides arômes de pain grillé, de grains, léger caramel et de poires jaune. Corps d’une densité moyenne, trčs fines bulles légčrement piquantes amenant une belle rondeur. Essentiellement malté en bouche, agrémenté par quelques flaveurs de fruits jaunes telle la poire. Houblon purement aromatique, aucune amertume présente.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Reddish amber. Rather sweet and intensely roasty with rounded, clean mouthfeel. Low-medium bitterness. A near perfect copy of Starobrno’s Cerveny Drak.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, pale amber color. Fruity aroma (peach ? apricot ?) and candy (barley-sugar). Flavor of malt, fruits and candy. Sweet finish that leaves a chalky feeling in the mouth. Light body, soft carbonation. Special and enjoyable.
