3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml can. The interesting leafy noble-English-hop profile is pretty much stealing the show here. The malt backbone offers some distant cookie notes but it is either a little shy or, probably, clouded by the hops, but the beer still feels quite balanced. And enjoyable. And easy to drink. And with a long dry aftertaste... Very good light stuff. And I’m happy with the price I paid: 11,99$ for 4 cans of 473ml, or 3,29$ each. It’s funny but I don’t often see, in Québec, 500 ml micro-brewery bottles sold at such a low price; they’re often 3,99$ and even more often 4,99$ each. I think I can let go 27ml for the price difference. But this might be this brewer’s most pleasant offering, though...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Nice gold pour with white head. Aroma is hoppy, kind of spicy hoppiness, black pepper, a bit of spruce. Taste has that sprucey bitterness, some caramel also present. The mix of hops is very nice - not particularly golding forward like a lot of bitters. Well carbonated, good finish. This is a superb session ale IMO, flavorful for the ABV. I could drink it all night.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can - 473ml. Hazy amber body with a thick, diminishing off-white frothy head. Its fresh, well balanced malty/hoppy aroma is rather thin. It carries some grassy and flowery hints. Decent hoppy taste with woody notes. Ends with a good bitter finish. Not bad at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 473mL can from Broue Ha Ha. Pours a hazy, muddy copper with a massive beige head. Aroma has some candy sugar, faint British malts, some yeast and not much else. Flavour has all the above, with some decent residual hop flavour. The highly active effervescence makes it somewhat harder to drink than something I would expect at 3.8% abv, but it’s not awful. I probably wouldn’t get this again, but it was at least somewhat enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 Cannette 473 ml. 3.8%. Couleur ambrée orangée, mousse blanche. Arôme de malt caramélisé et de houblon. Goût d emalt, houblon, céréales. Finale en malt et un peu d’amertume. Session typique et très bonne. Re-goûtée en août 2012. Un peu détériorée. Moins goûteuse. Revue à la baisse.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 pours dark golden-copper with a large white head, good retention and nice lacing. lively carbonation. caramel malts and fresh leafy hops - citrusy and slightly herbal (very nice profile). quenching. too aggressive carbonation, but overall it is a good session ale.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample drank at "La Soirée des Brasseurs 2010" in Shawinigan, on August 13. Creamy Honey blonde, small head. Aroma of raw malted barley, vegetable hop notes. Taste of Hops very thin, but very bitter, no aftertaste. It’s extra bitter all right, but I would love some extra taste to!
