COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
D’un bel orange ambré, la MacTavish s’écoule inéluctablement du verre laissant comme unique trace une belle dentelle de Bruges. Alors que quelques bulles s’échappent du liquide, des effluves de houblon vert, de terre ancestrale et d’épices se mélangent aux traditionnels parfums de noisette et de caramel des ales anglaises. En bouche, fraîcheur et acidité s’accordent aux saveurs maltées de biscuit et de caramel. Le houblon laisse alors une bonne amertume et ne confère sa verdure qu’en rétro-olfaction. La finale est sèche, subite et totalement désaltérante.

Bottle from Wine Emporium 100515. Clear golden colour with a mountain of sort white foam, looks like a scoop of ice cream. Aroma is very piney with a smooth easy to drink flavour. Great name and great packaging.

Beardbeerman (237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours a hazy caramel topped by about a finger of fluffy white head showing good retention and leaving medium-sized chunks along the side of the glass. The nose is orange peel, lemon, some grapefruit and bready caramel in the back. The taste is bold and hoppy with the citrusy features at the forefront. They all drop to a dry low and make you think it’s over, but it all swirls back to create an unexpected bready finish. The hops are bold, but the malts get to shine too. Decent carbonation and semi-oily mouthfeel, a pretty good APA. Cheers!

Franckg (378) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Arômes de houblons frais, orange et de citron. Un peu herbacé. Le goût est léger et légèrement amer. Les arômes de citron ressortent plus. Un petit goût de malt caramélisé se fait sentir ainsi que du pamplemousse en finale. Une bonne pale ale légère et fruité. Amertume douce et amère.

Light bitter sweet taste from start to finish. Average duration. Light,dry fizzy body. Very clean and refreshing taste. Cheers!

UXO (693) - CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours clear pale gold with three fingers of rocky white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderately heavy lacing. (4/5) Nose is pine resin, pithy citrus, light biscuity caramel malt. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5) Very drinkable APA. Might be a little on the old side, and perhaps it’d be brighter when newer, but still a decent enough brew. Perhaps a little expensive - ultimately it falls a little short of greatness, but the price tag doesn’t reflect that. There are better examples out there for less money. (14/20)
