Lubiere (9923) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2008
A light amber ale with a lacing creamy white head. A grassy herbal pale ale, pungent, lightly hoppy. In mouth, a classy ale reminiscent of British pubs, with lightly herbaceous green hops. Very successful. On tap at brewpub, August 3, 2008.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2008
My Bottom Line:
This English-style Pale Ale employs honeyed biscuity malts to offset leafy, earthy hops, as discreet diacetyl dons a caramelly mask throughout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam lines the clear pale orange.
-The use of traditional English ingredients is obvious here; only thing left to do is put it on cask (and the brewer will surely do it soon).
-That inherent touch of diacetyl is well levelled, but might bother those very sensitive to it.
-The hops are nicely bitter, even adding peppery notes.

On tap at the brewpub.

2011-08-08. Crisp golden yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Average to light bodied palate but it is creamy. Modest bitterness, light caramel and biscuity malt touches. 6+ Mild aroma is lightly fruity, mild green hop character. 6+ Pleasant. On tap at the brewpub, Levis

En fût. Verre de dégustation directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur d’houblons avec une pointe de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est dorée avec une faible densité de bulle.

Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #2608)

[3870-20110808] Tap. Leafy fruit aroma. Clear, pale orange amber body with a quick foamy white head. Lightly hopped lemon drops flavour has a mice bitter bread finish. Medium body. Good balance. (6/3/7/4-/14) 3.4

Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2010
Can: Poured a golden color ale with a medium foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of grain and cereal is quite dominant with some dry caramel malt notes as well. Taste is also dominated by some grain and cereal with a pretty dry finish of caramel malt with no discernible hops presence. Body is about average with great carbonation. Not the best beer I’ve tasted but must admit that this is pretty close to some of the English example of the style that I have tasted in the past.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2009 Sample tray. Dark amber. Light hop scent. Nice hop finish is short. Pretty straight forward beer. DON’T BUY THE CANS.

473 ml can. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick white head. Pleasant aroma of floral, greenish hops with caramel malt. The hops flavor is more powerfull than expected, the hops are floral, greenish, herbal, there’s also a presence of caramel malt and bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Nicely done.
