Fancy 750 ml bottle, corked and caged. Pours a bright ruby color with a small white head. A nice fruity caramel nose. The flavor is a light pale with caramel, dust, light oranges, earthy at times, lingers with a bit of bitterness. Produced only 3 months ago, but this tastes old. basically a really malty Pale. Quite good still, just unusual. The information on the label is really awesome and useful. Awesome!

To be completely honest with you I was shocked at how bad this was. Of course if Molson made this I’d be pleasantly surprised... mildly... but this beer misses the point of the APA, you need an interesting hop profile, it’s a requirement IMHO, and without it the beer is bland bland bland. Here all we get is a bit of lemon. Not "off", just boring.

dandeman (542) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2012
Hoppy nose with discreet citrus and orange notes. Aroma is not sticking out much and I had to dig hard to find some hazel nut. Appearance is golden amber, half clear, head is creamy, thick, long lasting and with nice lacing. Taste: Attack is dry and hoppy. Malted notes are taking over after with hazel nut, cereal and hay. Grain is the main accent for flavors. A good APA; not exceptional but OK. Reminds me country beers like ’’La Chouappe’’ beers.

Cloudy dark orange, ample lingering head. Aromas of citrus hop (esp grapefruit). Some malt background, but it is mostly the hops. Not aggressively bitter. Some unexpected yeast character. Refreshing/drinkable.

GoLdFiNgEr (111) - La Pocatière, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2012
Biere ambrée a 5% alc. 375 ml. Bonne présence du houblon. Goût léger de caramel et d'epices. Bonne amertume. Pas de caractère spécifique, mais très bonne biere dans ce style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Overall: carbonation is over the top (it should not be that high). This is how I like my APAs though: not sweet and hop forward. The choice of hops could maybe make this product shine more as I believe that these hops are not meant to be showcased as aroma hops but more for their bittering properties. Bitterness level is just fine though, cleans the palate alright. Nice packaging too now, these 375ml bottle are made for homebrewers: labels peel easily and the bottles themselves are nice looking.

Gerbeer (1943) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
On tap at GCBF. Pours an orange/brown with light head. Aroma of malt and lemon furniture polish. Flavors of yeast, light malts, a bit of spice and vegetable notes.

Bottle 375 ml. Bought at Peluso (Montreal). Pours clear amber with medium creamy beige head. Some lacing. Lot of bobbles. Aroma: grapefruit, hops, slight caramel. Taste has a very strong earthy bitterness (too much for my taste). Spicy finish. Long aftertaste. Dry finish. More like an IPA than an APA it seems to me. Ok beer, not much more...
