4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from 11.5oz bottle into pint glass
Aroma - Malty, fruity, yeasty. Slightest hint of citrusy hops
Appearance - Dark golden amber with large, creamy white head. Considerable lacing on the glass.
Flavor - Full malt flavor with fruit and yeast, followed by a very tasteful use of hops. This is delicious!
Palate - Light to medium with a very crisp finish. Leaves you longing for the next sip.
Overall - Very drinkable. This bridges the hop gap between British and American pale ale.

Six-pack from the Beer Store. Pours nicely, a good creamy off-white head with an attractive orange body. Maltier and less hoppy than I expected from the aroma. A very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark copper in colour. Nice fluffy off-white head. Very good lacing. The smell is modestly hoppy, with a nice pine touch to it and loads of caramel maltiness. The flavour profile has some bitterness, graininess, and a bit of sweetness, with some citrus notes and biscuit-like maltiness. Light-to-medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel. A very solid performer overall. This is an excellent session ale.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Aroma has an apple, hay, earthiness to it. Pours a solid amber with head fully diminishing. Mouth feel has a hint of creaminess through to finish. Carbo is medium to lively. Enjoyable in nice long pulls. Good flavour, nice on its own. As others mentioned, got better as it went along. From a 5 X 2 pack.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big fan of this stuff. On tap throughout Montreal, notably at Le Centre Sheraton where I drink it every time I visit. 341ml bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a beautiful clear amber color with a slight off-white head that dissolves shortly after pouring. A bit of trace lacing in the glass as it goes down. Smells strongly of hops and malts. Tastes strongly of hops, malt, and slight fruitiness in the aftertaste. Bitter. Delicious. Great beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Apparence: D’une couleur jaune dorée translucide, elle est coiffée d’une bonne mousse légère d’une bonne durée. Effervescence moyenne avec des bulles de petite taille.
Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes florales et de fraîcheurs qui dominent.
Saveurs: Très rafraichissant, très doux en bouche. C’est le côté florale qui se développe en premier lieu. L’amertume prend du temps à se manifester, mais la patience rapporte. Pratiquement aucune effervescence.

Style: American Pale Ale

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crunchy malt, nice clean hops, dangerously drinkable. To be drink in a pint on McAuslan’s Terrasse. To be drink in your pint on your terrasse. Well done for so many years. A classic form this brewery. A nice introduction to "real" beer. What a commercial beer sould be.

Pours light bronze with quarter inch white head. Aroma is light floral hops. Taste is sweet hops with a sour aftertaste. Smooth, long lasting taste. Could use a bit more punch, but overall good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderately dark Amber/Red with a white head. Typical hoppy pale ale with light malty and fruity notes. Starts sweet and finishes with a bitter, crisp aftertaste. Easy drinking and fairly well balanced.
