Caramel and toasty malts in the light sweet aroma. Clear amber body roped by a decent and lasting off white head that leaves some lace. Moderate bitterness offers the caramel and nutty malt qualities. Medium body with moderate carbonation. I donít know if Iíd consider anything to be Belgian-style about this beer but it is fairly drinkable. Sampled on tap at the Canucks game at Rogers Arena in Jan-12.

Bronzed-gold appearance, topped by an airy froth head. Light grain in the aroma and very crisp. Watery body, though flavored by a pleasantly sweet graininess. Despite the name, this seems like more of a blonde ale.

Chemical maltiness. Dark amber colour. Weird sweetness. Bad enough for me to fake caring enough to write a long enough review.

Itís amber. A little sweet. Some malt. Iím pretty sure I saw a picture of this in the dictionary under "bland".

ljthiessen (1126) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Can. Cloudy amber pour, not much head. Sweet and malty, a touch metallic, unremarkable. Don't really catch what's Belgian about it. This is about as mediocre as it gets.

Draught@Bridges, Granville Island. Deep golden color, off-white head. Malty aroma. Fairly sweet, malty flavor with nutty notes. Medium body, medium carbonation. Oh well.

AgentAle (1529) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2015
Aroma is roasted fairly rich caramel malts, honey and straw. Taste is sweet malts and honey. Very pale bitterness. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Floral notes and citrus notes in the aroma, body matches the aroma with a caramel and mahogany taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A slight grainy malt character to this. Amber body. Grainy aroma. Really not much going on here.

Pours a pretty, rose-tinged amber with small, chunky off-white head. Nose offers mild floral and cherry notes to complement yeast. Palate adds caramel, biscuit and a hint of spice. The body is light and thin, but still manages to be buttery. The bitterness is well controlled, adding a slight edge to the mellow malt in a Belge Speciale style. It comes bit short of its Belgian counterparts, and Americans looking for "big" beer should look elsewhere. But as a gentle, balanced brew, itís woth considering.
