Eructoblaster (3842) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2004
Nice dark gold body with superb long-lasting brownish head. Its malty aroma (with some hints of honey) doesn't hide the alcool pretty well, but it is not unpleasant. The texture is lightly syrupous and the taste got some warming effect. Bitterness reveals itself in the dry final. Interesting product. Reminds me some Oktoberfest beers...

(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.

Like a strong Vienna - various amber malts, toasty flavours, crackerlike finish.

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.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2005
RBSG 2005. Dark orange amber, with a moderate off white head (3+) Sweet with similar floral fruity notes in the aroma as I picked out of the Montreal Hell. Interesting. Flavour is similar to the aroma, sweetly fruity with floral hoppy bitterness.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Draft... RBSG2005... Clear, deep amber lager with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Very good retention. Malty aroma and flavor with floral notes and bread, honey and toasted caramel in both. Well-balanced and a touch peppery. Medium-bodied and clean with low carbonation. Finishes mildly bitter and medium dry.

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2005
October 28th brewpub binge, and by this point, I was smashed, barley able to see. I cant tell you the aroma, my notes are unreadable. Pours a crystal clear amber with heavy large bubbles, thick white head of large bubbles aswell. Palat thin and a little fizzy. Taste was very simple, sweet malt, grapefruit bitterness, spicy hop, toasted shugar, with undertones of lemon zest, and a dry smokeyness. Aftertaste is nutty malt with a very sweet finish that sticks around for a while. Very good, but I gota stop blending ale and lager on a tasting night. My head hurts. Cheers

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Pint drank at the brewpub. Pours a nice copper color with a hint of red and a decent head. Smells of honey, some nice earthy malt and peppery hops. Tastes of honey and caramel with touches of hops. Very sessionable with a full mouthfeel.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur ambrée-orangée et voilée. Nez de grains de malt sucrés, de caramel doux, léger de miel avec des notes rôties, léger de houblon floral aux notes hebreuses ainsi que des petites notes fruitées (agrumes, pêche et poire). Moyennement ronde en bouche et moyennement pétillante avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Faibles notes fruitées (agrumes, petites traces de poires) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi assez rapidement d’un goût de grains de malt avec un goût de caramel doux et des notes de miel puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral avec quelques notes épicées (poivre doux). Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral avec des traces fruitées (agrumes). (été 2006)
