Draught at the brewpub
Amber color, light head, light lacing. Nose of brown sugar and earthy hops, odd, almost like rye. The flavor is nutty, semi-sweet, interesting.

JulienHuxley (5417) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2010
On tap. Copper amber appearance. Aroma is light spice, caramel malt; very simple. More powerful flavors but somewhat harsh. Aggressive citrus hops, cereal and herbal bitterness. Fizzy carbonation with average mouthfeel. Not very enjoyable.

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.

CapFlu (5047) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2005
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub. Very similar in aroma and taste to the Montreal Hells which I sampled first though this beer was more rousse in flavour and had more malt notes. Same floral hops and a milder bitterness at the finish. Very good.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 On tap @ L’Amère à Boire (Montréal). Clear copper with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is soft with light peated notes, toffee, malt and light fruits. Taste is slightly sweet and about the same as aroma. Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Drinkable and enjoyable.

(Un verre de bonne dimension. Une robe ambrée orangée qui fait vraiment belle figure. Une mousse dense qui laisse quelques traces derrière son passage. Un nez de bonbons maltés qui permettent un étalement fruité. Des saveurs qui sont dominées par les céréales douces. Autre chose que du caramel : un biscuit sucré et mielleux? Les houblons réussissent à contenir la douceur. La bouche est bien agréable et expansive : les bulles sont modérément actives et la texture est riche. La finale se fait sur les malts qui ne sont jamais trop sucrés. Très appréciable.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2003
Little aroma. Nice amber colour with decent white head. Rather anonymous middle of the road flavour. Nothing assertive about this beer. Not a bad beer by any means but not one of the best at this fine brewpub. On tap.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 31, 2003
Nicely colored, clean and simple malty lager. Not bad at all, but also not much going on. Slightly bready.

Marheb (4192) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2011 Un peu plus caramel que la ’’Montréal Hell’’ et légèrement plus floral. Tout aussi efficace mais un échelon plus haut dans le spectre des saveurs.
