473ml can. Pours a copper-red colour with an off-white head which sticks around for a while. Smells bittersweet, with citrus and malt, and some candy-like aromas. Tastes sweet. A great beer, would recommend for sure.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper amber body with a minimal white head which dissipated entirely leaving no residue or lacing whatsoever. Hop nose: pine, fresh-cut grass fairly generic. Extremely light bodied and sessionable. Low carbonation, low percieved bitterness, The finish is abrupt and carries the flavors of the hops without the bitterness, quite unique, but that is really all this beer brings to the table.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dorée, un col plus ou moins mousseux pour une cream ale. Des saveurs simple de céréales et d’agrumes... Décevant...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can @ Capers Belleville. Pours a near clear amber with a short-lived small white head. Aromas are earth, wood, and fruity esters. Tastes are coppery malts and light hop bite. Light body, creamy, plenty of carbonation, gentle medium dry bitter finish. I’ll buck the trend on this one and call it a pleasant sessionable ale.

355 mml Bottle tasted the 27/09/2014. Brown copper colour with a small head. Aroma and taste are predominated by the grain and malts. Nothing special but drinkable and refreshing. Next one please!

Bottle - Grainy notes and pale malts. Clear gold with a decent white head. Sweet pale malts and some light toast and a very light bitter bite. Pretty clean finish. OK.

Bottle. Nice fairly happy aroma, but the taste is metallic, plain, and not too interesting. Didn’t help that I had it after an IPA. Will re-rate next time I try it, but I won’t be in any hurry to do so.

341ml bottle. Utterly forgettable. I can’t even rate this properly as it left, literally, no impression on me.
No, wait! That’s not entirely true; I remember there being nothing creamy about this beer.

Can. Brown amber pour with a fingers worth of white head that leaves some lace. Nut and caramel aroma. Taste is fairly nutty, basically just malts with a metallic tang at the end.

Okay, so I may be a little drunk at this point. Still. Pours a rather lovely hazy copper colour with a minimal head that fades swiftly to a faint lacing. Aroma is faint, hard to say just what is what. Flavour is neither particularly bitter nor sweet- if anything, it is a very well balanced ale that would go down well at any time of the year. I’d happily buy a 24 case of this for a busy weekend worth of drinking and consider it an investment well spent.
