SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2010
UPDATED: APR 1, 2013 Liquide orangé avec une mousse savonneuse et tenace. Présence de dentelles sur le verre. Nez rempli de notes citriques, d’herbes, de grains maltés et de résine. En bouche, les bulles dégagent principalement un goût houblonné d’agrumes et une douceur propre au malt grillé. La finale se fait suffisamment longue sur une amertume décente.

750 mL bottle. The beer is a lovely shade of copper-orange with a shrinking but sticky beige head. The hops in the aroma are resinous, mostly, although there is definitely some grapefruit in there as well. The flavour is well crafted, with the up-front hops giving way to a simple caramel and finaly to a lingering, bitter finish. If I have a complaint, it’s that the beer becomes slightly tinny and metallic near the end, and the carbonation is a touch heavier than it needs to be. On the whole, however, this is an enjoyable beer.

75cl bottle. Pours orange with a frothy white head. The aroma improved as the beer warmed. It started malty and earthy but as it warmed the hops started coming through. For an "American Pale Ale" this was a little disappointing as I expected more hops. The taste was bitter, but unbalanced with the aroma. Over all...mmhe. It was ok, but for an American Pale Ale, it does not live up.

750 ml bottle from Trappe a Fromage, shared with Rob, served cool in a tulip glass. 27DE09.

App.: Clear brownish-copper, fair off-white froth. Aroma: Very British, earthy/nutty/stern malts, earthy, peppery, dank hops, kinda green and vegetal, spicy. Palate: Medium body and moderate effervescence. Flav.: A bit more malt than the nose, still earthy and nutty but with a bit more caramel, light hints of bitter orange, resinous hops, leafy hops, no C-hops, a bit musty, peppery, spicy; a light British malt finish that is dry with decent bitterness.

Misses the mark for style, but still drinkable.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle - 750ml. Amber body with average carbonation and a huge off-white foamy head. Pleasant, well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with spicy and oaky hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries oaky notes and ends with a decent bitter finish. Good example of American Pale Ale.

Looks great deep colour nice head good carbonation. aroma is dominated by hops from the American North west, Flavour is bitter and grassyMalt and grass that is what this beer has going on. IT reminds me of Bown Island Pale ale, wich is a cheap dollar per can Beer for hobos and students.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
A generous gift from Poperinge. My bottle says Americaine. Pours a nice amber/orange with a nice off white head. The aroma is very earthy and grassy, with a hint of citrus. The flavor is reminiscent of root vegetables. Some citrus, but it needs a brightness to off set the earthiness. I would pass on this beer if offered again. But any way thanks for the beer Mike!

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
A bottle of Quebec beer shared before going off to cheer for Montreal in the Grey Cup. Creamy froth. Thin woody nose. Soft Brittish style. Relatively hoppy. Nice aftertaste. A nice regular rotation beer but not in the extra special extra charge category.

I got really into this beer. Aroma is glorious hop and caramel. Taste is well balanced with good hop bitterness and caramel and malt. Amber brown in colour. I really enjoyed this beer. I’ll definitely pick it up at the dep again.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 New red label 750 ml bottle, in store since yesterday, so totally fresh. No, not awful at all to me. High quality rendition of this style I really like, with a beautiful copper color and an enjoyable intense leafy and slightly citrusy hopping. Sweet and fruity notes. Somehow oily mouthfeel (abundance of hop result?) and a long great aftertaste. I like this a lot but it is a little expensive but, again, why pay less in life?... Good job again, you Mousquetaires! ADDED: Quite different in its new version, brewed with Québécois malts, but some displeasing acrid vegetal persisting notes are not pleasant. Down from 6-4-8-4-15, which was to high anyway...
