Not bad. I have to say that I am not particularly a fan of this style. Nice hoopy aspect is well balanced with the malts.

Bottle. Pours unclear golden in color with a whitish head. Malty, quite fresh bready notes actually, some sweetness and hints of grassy bitterness in aroma. Bit of grassy bitterness in taste too, feels quite soft though, which is nice. A refreshing beer for this occassion.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper pour with lots of pillowy head that leaves a little lace. Lots of bready notes with some roasted character, light toffee. There’s something floral about this as well. Mostly the same on the palate. Finishes slightly sweet with a good malt flavour. Impressive for the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Prost! I could have this beer everyday, I see why they brew it specifically for getting thrashed at a beer festival, it’s remarkably drinkable. Nothing fancy but super tasty and refreshing. Hazy brown orange with a thin, crisp head. Notes of caramel, burnt toffee, toasted malts and cereal smack the sniffer. Very tiny hop smell and flavour, a smooth and dry finish to boot. Should be drinking this from a boot actually. Germans sure make Lagers not suck. Even though this is Quebecois. But y’know. Vive le Quebec Li-biere!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear medium coppery amber with one fingers of loose beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is caramel malt, honey, herbal and floral hops. Taste is caramel and bready malt, with a little spice and a slight nuttiness. Light to medium body, somewhat slick, sustained prickly carbonation, and a mildly bitter (20 IBU) finish.
Decently drinkable but for it being quite sweet and malty - it’s almost a honey brown. (I don’t think I could handle more than one of these.) Not bad, certainly, and very appropriate for cooler weather - but I have to admit I’m continuing to consistently rank lagers toward the lower end of my personal preference. In this case, I think I’d be happier with a little more robustness and spice, and a little less caramel malt.

Great looking brown amber, with a fading head. Nice and malty, caramel, almost maple. Taste is bitter, but still malty.pretty tasty. Finish is a little dry. Good beer overall.

Literally, my review of this beer can just about be summed up with the review directly below mine. I get all the same aromas/tastes, although there’s this funky sort of barnyard element that lingers through the finish, and I’m not sure whether I like it or not. Otherwise the finish is subtly, but noticeably dry. For 21 IBU and 6.4% alcohol, this stuff is amazingly quaffable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy amber with a big frothy off white head. Aroma is of caramel, herbs, honey, and floral hops. Tastes of caramel, sugar, banana, booze, and even those hallertau hops. Has a medium body with low carbonation. This beer is smooth, slick and refreshing, would make a very good session beer in my opinion.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is a subtle earthiness, clove, and light caramel, and roasted malts. Taste is a bold bitterness up front but mellows nicely with a well balanced sweet roasty maltiness. Appearance is a hazy orange / amber with a thin pearl head that retains poorly
