Comme son style l’indique, elle est ambré et sa mousse est éphémère. elle sent le malt et le caramel et l’inox. Ça goûte le malt, le caramel et c’est quelque peu herbacé. C,est aussi aqueux et plutôt insipide. On ne s’en souviendra pas (814-180913)

355ml can. Cloudy ruby/amber. Straw, mud, caramel malts. Not too sweet, lightly bitter on the finish. Light to medium-bodied, mildly carbonated. Mellow and a bit creamy. Call it a camping beer.

330 ml bottle. Pours a light clear amber with a moderate white head. Aromas are fresh peas/lentils, Taste is a little coffee bitterness and fresh legume. Surprisingly light body, good carbonation and a light bitter finish. Unique beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

vadie (1203) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
Couleur ambrée avec une petite mousse blanche/beige. L’arôme légèr de malt , comme c’etait entre une bonne bière et une bière bon marché. Le goût est de malt avec un peu de caramel. Un goût faible d’houblon en finale. De bout à l’autre c’est un peu légèr mais assez bonne quand même.

Bottle to Unibroue tulip glass.

Appearance: Transparent burnt amber with a fluffy white mousse like head.

Aroma: Slight burnt caramel, biscuit, some resin in there too.

Taste: Not bad...caramel, toffee, some corn. A hint of grass and citrus. A hint of corn...

Palate: Pretty smooth, but it has a slight "cheap beer" feel to it because of the corn taste. There’s also a slight astringency that you would find in a cheap lager as well...

Overall: A simple, cheap beer that gets the job done without being shitty. Not outstanding by any means...just like the government.

Bottle. Aroma of roasted malts. A bit watery for my liking, but not horrible. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
Pours a clear amber with a big frothy off white head that leaves lots of lace. Aroma of caramel, biscuit malts and some sweet floral hop aromas on the finish. Taste is caramel and biscuit malts with a light bitterness on the finish. Overall this is a very nice easy to drink amber ale.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Another nice hefty bottle for brewed beer. Pours a slightly hazy orange/red color with a very tall, frothy, off white head. Aroma has a strong toasted, caramel sweet maltiness with a modest amount of light citrus hops with a light earthy kick as well. Flavor has bit of a maris otter toasted flavor with a lot of sweet caramel malt and some light earthy/citrus hops presence at the finish. Body is light with a sharp fine carbonation presence. Overall not too bad.

Poured from a 500ml can. Dark amber body. Off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is light maltiness. Mouthfeel is thin, but grainy. Medium-high carbonation. Taste is sweet, biscuity, light caramel malts, mild bitterness. A simple, easy drinking amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
