3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, as Américaine. Cloudy amber with a large off white head. Citrus aroma with some peach and pine. Quite sweet with fruity, cereal and light toasted malts, reserved citrus and some pine. Less clean malt side than a US version - not itself a bad thing. Quite bitter finish. No date, but perhaps not the freshest bottle - I’d guess a bit of toppy zing to the citrus is missing. Still pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle caged and corked with the name Americaine. Poured a clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy grass hop, yeast and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium yeasty bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Sous un timide col beige, une belle bière acajou limpide. Col frêle. Des arômes d’herbe, de caoutchouc, mais aussi de grenier poussiéreux. Onctueuse à effervescence moyenne avec une fin relativement amère.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice american pale ale, hoppy enough to be an IPA but very well balanced. Maybe not a beer for hopheads but still more satisfying than a lot of IPAs. A decent bodied malt with a very pleasant hop bitterness that maintains a nice balance between malt and hops.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has a very nice big bright beige head and clear amber-gold body. Aroma is a soft hint of hops and little more. Flavour is a nice half-half mix of malt and hops; mouthfeel is a little weak though. Still, it’s all right, but not spectacular.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Vice et Versa in Montreal. Pours a good medium gold with sticky white head. Aroma is hoppy, bready malts with mild sweetness. Taste has an aggressive almost English style hopping but not lacking in bite. It is like a hybrid of an Brit IPA and an American Pale. Decent but not stunning.
