UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 More often than not though, this brew is elevated to the lager firmament...Perfect equilibrium of ultra-fresh cereals and peppery, herbal hoppiness...Divine union of fruity caramel subtleties and soft effervescence...The wedding of artisanry and conviviality....

On tap at L’Amere a Boire. Pours a clear orange amber, with almost crimson highlights and a medium white head. Sweet, with a lot of toasted malt on the nose. Light sweetness in the body before moving to a light grainy bitter.

[1454-20080531] Tap. Faint grainy aroma has a sweet background. Clear, amber brown body with no lasting head. Grainy sweet boozy yeast flavour. Medium body. Similar to the maibock but less boozy.

Draught at L’Amère à Boire. Pours a clear amber with a small diminishing creamy off-white head and good lacing on the glass. Mild aroma, a bit sweet, biscuity and lightly hoppy. Flavour of caramel malt, grain, wheat and German hops. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

TaktikMTL (6571) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2005
Verre à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel et de fruité. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée orangée et on y dénote aucune bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’houblon et de caamel. La durée de l’arrière goût est courte. Palette: Le corps est mince et la texture est huileuse. L’effervescence en bouche est faible. Présence de sucre d’orge en arrière goût. (Rating #347)

Draught. At LaB. Clear amber pour, smallish off-white head. Pretty non-descipt aroma, light and biscuity, floral finish. The flavour though, ah, there ya go! - seemed fresh and biscuity, solid herbal hops, balance is the key, a fair bit of bitterness in the finish, but the malt is solid and toasty - really good. Light body, slightly soapy citrus zest mouthfeel - solid.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 On tap: Apperance is a clear copper with a light off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, honey and caramelic. Taste is caramel with hints at earth. Finish is dry, lightly hoppy and lightly acidic.

At last a very needed update on this. If you manage to catch it fresh and despite its consistency, one of the better batches, you’re in for a treat. An immensely drinkable, very fresh, bready, almost caramelly, but all in its gentle nutty, toasty munichs. Remarkable flowery, fresh, clean hoppiness. Superbly delicate hallertau. From 3.0 to 4.2!
