EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, - APR 13, 2009
Bouteille de 500 ml. La bière est de couleur cuivrée et possède un col de mousse modeste. Au nez on découvre des arômes de caramel, de gâteau aux fruits, de levure et de noix. En bouche le corps est moyen avec une effervescence faible-moyenne. On goûte des saveurs de caramel, de fruits rouges, de grain légèrement grillé, de levure et d’épices. Une subtile présence d’alcool est aussi perceptible.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. de couleur orangée et voilée. Nez sûr de levures fruitéess (agrumes, surtout de citron, traces de pêche trop mûres) et léger de grains de malt. Plutôt mince en bouche. Goût sûr et aux notes acides de levures fruitées (surtout agrumes, léger de pommes vertes cidreuses) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de grains de malt sucrés avec des traces de caramel. Post-goût légèrement aigre de levures fruitées (pommes cidreuses, notes de citron).

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
Originally rated November 2006. Bought in a convenient store in the Saguenay region. The numbers for the date of bottling are there, but nothing is notched off... what a waste of info. Pours a murky orange-beige-brown colour with a tanned foamy head that stays a while. Good lacing all-around and a coating tops the brew. Sediments on the light-colour side are at the bottom of the glass. That’s about all I have good to say about this one. The rest is like most of their other brews, seems infected. Sour lemony nose with some hop. Sour taste too with whatever hop they are using. Some acceptable red apple flavour comes out of this and mild coffee, late in the aftertaste.

GarnotingPete (771) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2011
Bière totalement opaque à la couleur de dattes et coiffée d’un léger col chamoix. Des arômes de pâte à pain, de caramel avec des notes étranges (pour une amber ale) de cerises confites et d’alcool. Légèrement amère avec un peu de sucre résiduel rappelant le miel. De corps moyen à l’effervescence légère elle est de texture huileuse. Elle laisse une fin raisonnablement arômatique et légèrement sucrée.

JesseM (1145) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2009
500mL bottle from Mache Jovi in Gatineau. Pours a muddy brown with a huge beige head (this one was a gusher). The aroma is extremely faint, sharp floral aspects but not in a hoppy way, fizz, basically nothing. Flavour is equally empty. Mild sweet indistinct malts, extremely fizzy palate, boring, seriously, seriously boring. Totally void of any redeeming qualities, other than being drinkable, but mostly because water tends to be pretty drinkable. English Pale Ale almost seems like a sarcastic joke of a classification, granted, ’Bad Home Brewed Attempt at Nothing’ isn’t really a style. There’s really nothing to give points to here.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 Very muddy red body with a thick frothy head Faint aroma of sugar, metal and raw malt. Flavour is light caramel, roasted malt, herbs, brown sugar and raw cereals with a thin to medium body and agressive carbonation. Malty,not much hops. I swore not to drink anything from this brewery again, so I’m pleasantly surprised by this one. It’s not anything special, but my expectations where really really low. I might give them another chance sometime...

Amber colored, grassy aroma like post-rainstorm. Earthy topsoil character, very tasty.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2008
Bottle: Poured a light clear brown color ale with a huge off-white foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel malt is lightly sweet. Taste is mostly dominated by some lightly sweet caramel malt with some light notes of some weird ester some chemical or infected. Body is about average with some great carbonation. I have not had a beer from this brewery in years and this definitely better then expected but still not totally great.

baguil (8) - CANADA - DEC 18, 2007 does not count
Contrairement au commentaire. Je l’ai beaucoup apprécié comme presque toutes les bières de cette brasserie. Goût un peu dur mais agréable après accomodation de la bouche.
