Metalchopz (3076) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
Originally rated July 2007. Second brew tonight of the St-Urbain series. Pours a clean bronze colour with little to no carbonation. Off-white head that is foamy and does not stay as long as their blonde. A bit of lacing sticks to the glass. The aromas are pretty much the same as the blonde, and so is the mouthfeel. Again, that not-so-good metallic taste appears in the taste. The malt is different in this one, obviously, to make this a red lager. Meant to be dranked in the bottle though. I think I prefer the blonde.

Bouteille 341ml. 4.9%. Couleur ambrée-brune, mousse blanche-beige. Nez de malt et de sucre. Mince en bouche et légèrement acqueuse. Goût de malt et caramel et une finale avec une légère amertume de houblon. Bonne mais la Rickard’s l’emporte quand même.

slight malty notes, hardly any hops, another boring lager. Pretty macro, and nothing to write home about.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2008
Meh. Pours copper-bown, with a minimal head. Grainy-sweet aromas come through with the initial taste. Thin caramel and hops finish. Overall bland and uninspired but commerically drinkable.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2008
Bouteille de 341 ml. Nos yeux observent une bière de couleur cuivrée avec des reflets rougeâtres et une mousse beige modeste. Notre nez respire des arômes de caramel, de sirop, de sucre et de noix. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen avec une effervescence moyenne. On goute des saveurs de tofee, de sirop de caramel avec une finale légèrement houblonnée.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2008
bouteille 341ml. De couleur ambrée-brune et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés, léger de caramel, de maïs sucré et de houblon herbeux avec des notes de noix. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes crémeuses et aqueuses. Goût de grains de malt sucrés accompagné de notes de noix lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût malté de caramel ainsi qu’un léger-moyen goût de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) aux notes asséchantes. Post-goût moyen-court et aux petites notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Clear copper brown, modest cream coloured head. Low caramel aroma. Near-featureless palate of watery caramel with a metallic finish. Not nice.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2008
341 ml bottle- Deep copper/amber pour with a beige frothy head. Malty nose of mild caramel and candy with some grains. Flavour is sweet malts with an earthy yeastiness and grains as well. Pretty weak overall, finishes watery and thin. Meh.

Sweet coca-cola-like nose, deep copper, nice toffee head, some pretty lace too. Mild nuttiness, some malt, light bodied, sweet, very little carbonation? Not much going on here.
