Dégustée en cask sur place. De couleur orangée-ambrée et voilée. Nez de houblon floral et aux notes citriques (pamplemousse), légèrement fruité (agrumes, notes d’abricots et de cantaloup) et léger de caramel très doux avec des petites notes de miel. Moyenne en bouche, pétillment bas avec une texture huileuse. Moyen goût fruité sucré (mangue et agrumes) accompagné d’un goût moyennement amer de houblon floral aux notes citriques (pamplemousse- une amertume qui dure toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût malté de caramel doux et très légèrement rôti avec notes de biscuits puis en finale l’amertume de houblon acquiert un léger caractère herbeux . Post-goût moyen-long, moyennement amer de houblon floral, légèrement citriquede et aux notes herbeuses avec des notes fruitées (agrumes). (printemps 2006)

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 (Cask) Cloudy amber with a foamy long lasting white head. Nose is forestry and grassy. Taste is liquid caramel, floral hops. Below average sweetness (which I like) and very well balanced. Very faithful to the typical English bitter ale style. I can’t imagine it any other way than on cask (probably subtract 0.5 if draught). Won’t be long before it is promoted to Corporal Bitter.

LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2006
The color is dark orange, with the nice smell of hops. The taste goes from honey to caramel. All in all a very good bitter.

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Cask. Dark amber body with a small white head. Light caramel and citrus aroma. Sweet buttery notes. Mild hoppy bitterness is quite nice up front but the malt finish is pretty rough. Average cask palate.

asheft (2968) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2006
[on cask at brewpub] Almost clear tea with lasting white froth that formed a little lace. Strawberry malt aroma with notes of grapefruit, caramel--excellent. Unfortunately, the flavour did not live up to what the aroma promised: salty bitterness in front of...nothing. Needs way more caramel malt character. This tasted like a bad british bitter. Light body with low carbonation (cask, of course) and lasting bitterness.

brufrog (15) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 30, 2006
Nose is not bad, but has a dry astringent finish. Needs some malt balance. I relaize this rating is variable due to it being cask beer (practical reasons).

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
Robe cuivrée surmontée d’une mousse blanche qui s’estompe. Arômes de pamplemousse et de malt caramel. Saveurs de pamplemousse et de malt caramel.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 Bu sur place, 20 oz. Couleur typique d’une ESB, peu de collet. Arome légé d’houblon amère simple. Goût d’amerturme passable. Pas pire.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2005
Dark amber/red, with a thin line of froth.
Honey-sweet hops and very, very floral, like crushing freshly picked hops in your hands.
Creamy mouthfeel, decent malt middle and puckering hop finish, like dipping a crispy biscuit in wildflower honey. Probably the best Beer they make. That being said, there isn’t much of a cask scene in town so maybe if I’m overhyping this Beer in my own mind!
