Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2008
A dark amber ale with a thin off white head. Aroma of caramel and mandarines, very typed and pleasant, ightly buttery. In mouth, a flavourful bitter ale with biscuit malt, sustained hops bitterness, grain mash. Very nice. Medium bodied. Tasted at brewpub, August 2 2008.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2011
2011-08-08. Lightly hazy orange amber body with an off white head. 3+ Flavour is pleasantly hoppy, modest citrus notes up front and moderate bitterness throughout. 6+ Modes hoppy aroma, mild grass and green leafy hop character. Light notes of lemon citrus. Average bodied palate. Simple but enjoyable, possibly my favourite of those I tried today. On tap at the brewpub, Levis

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This 3% Bitter offers lots of citrusy and leafy hop flavors and bitterness in a quenching mouthfeel fit for long sessions.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the cloudy light amber.
-This beer’s main downfall, imho, is its distinct lack of malt definition. Some refinement at that level would make this a stellar session brew.
-The potent hop bitterness is also herbal.
-Carbonation is soft and the mouthfeel never thin.
-I’d really love to try this on cask!

On tap at the brewpub.

czar (4367) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
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.

JulienHuxley (3046) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2011
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.

Eructoblaster (3015) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
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.
