COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In December 1990 was born a superbly shimmering red: a sparkling English Lady. Since this beer is so balanced, the master brewer claimed: « My goodness, this is not a two of spades! » We then decided to name it the « Three of Spades » for it had been created during our 3rd anniversary. Brewed with the purest tradition from malted barley, this red is dominated by caramel malt. It is subtly hopped in order to bring out all of its richness; a real pleasure to taste.

Jolie bière cuivrée, limpide et où flotte un col bien mousseux laissant une fine dentelle au verre. Des arômes un peu monochromes de malt caramel et une levure un peu poussiéreuse. Légèrement amère, sans trop de sucre résiduel. Elle est mince, de corps frêle, bien effervescente et se termine sur une amertume un peu courte.

on tap at brewpub. clear dark golden- light brown with a decent light beige head, little retention. caramel malts, semi-sweet, decent amount of light roastiness, nuttyness, decent herbalness. aggressive carbonation, light body, short and present grassy finish, hint of metal though.

Tap at the brewery. Nice one. Aromas of caramel and flowers. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes. Palate is velvety, with a thin-to-medium body. Amber, with a head that disappears.

Draught at ’Linox’, Quebec City. Dunkler Bock? It was called an ESB there!? Weird. Pours a clear amber-brown with an average size diminishing white head. Very mild aroma of caramel malt, a bit toasty perhaps, and some fruit. Watery flavour of fruity malt and maybe some hops in the finish -- this needs much more flavour. Quite dull, especially for the style.

Robe rousse très claire surmontée d’une mousse beige qui s’estompe. Arômes de fruits confits et de beurre. Saveurs de framboises, de cassis, de houblon floral et de malt caramel.

Tap at the brewpub. As mentioned by others a definitive chemical aroma. Somewhat of citrus, lemon or grapefruit taste. Not a bad beer but not my style.
