Correct; ressemble un peu à une ’Rousse’ du Québec, un peu amer, pas de subtilité mais ça descend bien. Pas mémorable.

A nice alternative to Killians or other Irish Reds. Slightly hazy reddish in color. Thin head with very little lacing present. Nice taste, slightly fuller than Killians. Excellent drink-ability, goes down smoothly and very quickly was ready for another. No overpowering after taste. Definitely would drink again.

caramel, grass, resin, red, brown, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, umami, light body, thin feel, creamy, soft carbonation, bitter, long finish Really nice dark ruby pour with minimal white head. Aromas of sweet dark caramel are subtle with more green grass and tree sap pronounced. Thin bodied and lightly carbonated with a slick mouthfeel. Taste is more on the bitter side with some light sourness and sweet as well. Aftertaste is bitter and a light astringency lingering between sips.

dark copper with an offwhite head. smell is sweet malt, quite subdued. taste is leafy hops, a rounded maltiness, light caramel character. palate is smooth and full bodied relative to the low alcohol. subdued but quite good and fits in well as an occasional sessioner.

Bretteux (181) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2013
Le col demeure assez longtemps du a sa bonne effervescence.Les bulles nombreuses picote les lèvres au contact du liquide.Une couleur rougeâtre qui sagence bien avec la couleur de la canette hihi !Au gout; cest bien malté avec une légère touche damertume qui col au palet.pour conclure une bière qui se boit facilement.

Surprenament houblonnée, peu d’amertume, bon côté céréale, facile à boire. Pas une tonne d’aromatique mais ya quand même une bonne charge de saveurs.

Stinky stench. Too smokey, Too Snotty, Too dark for this type of brew. Pure BS IMO. Don’t bother with this one.

Appearance: Deep amber color with a creamy off white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Mild fruity.
Palate: A bit light body. Mild sweetness and light bitter. Creamy carbonation.
Taste: Mild caramel malty and light fruity.
Overall impression: Fresh and ok Irish ale. But could improve a lot with a bit more full body.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with tommann

Unassuming, discrete and modest red ale-ish beer, tastes slightly of industry and mass production. Good mass production, but not too special. Creamy, good sweetness and a decent bitter aftertaste. Grows on you!
