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.

Cervesa poc aromàtica pel que acostuma a ser l’estil, pel meu parer es tracta d’ua pale de tirada britànica amb més caracter maltós que aromàtic. Cerveza poco aromática por lo que acostumbra a ser su estilo, a mi parecer se trata de una pale de tiro mas británico con un carácter mas maltoso que aromático.

mcberko (6697) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is dry and crisp, with crackery malt and crisp grassy hops. Flavour is similarly crisp and very clean, with grassy floral hops and very crisp crackery malt. Dry, crisp and clean, but not overly exciting. Decent enough.

guil0000 (268) - New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours a clear yellow color with a thin white head. Lacing stays on the glass for a pretty long time. Sweet malt nose, wheat, with a bit of caramel and floral hops. Light to medium body. Medium bitterness. Quite well balanced.

didierlewallon (103) - ponferrada, SPAIN - AUG 29, 2014
Cerveza de color anaranjado ambarino, cabeza de color blanquecino, aromas de toques de lúpulo floral, cítricos hierbas y algunas maltas bready, notas de perfumes de avellanas y de caramelos blando de los Ales Inglés. En boca, tiene frescura y acidez, el lúpulo deja una buena amargura, el final es seco, súbito y totalmente refrescante. Es una cerveza muy suave de buenos sabores y aromas.

D'un beau doré. Mousse blanche qui tombe rapidement. Bonne longueur avec amertume. Sucre faible. Acidité faible. Bonne amertume en final. Odeur de foin et pamplemousse. Effervescente en bouche.

exeter (313) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a new 1 finger head with great lacing. Dark gold colour with a slight cloudiness to it. Taste is almost pine but not quite, stays in the citrus skin range. Otherwise, there are caramel and malt with upper range bitterness. I’d have it again.

Hidden_Pooch (333) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Well wicked art work to start, as are all of Trou’s bottles. Poured amber with little frothy head. Aroma was of fruits, flowers, and honey, like being in a meadow. Tasted of resin, tart fruits, floral hops and even some lemon in there as well. Had low carbonation and a smooth medium body, with a refreshing bitter aftertaste. Trou du Diable does it again.
