I expected this beer to be their "accessible" beer, and while it is, there's quite a bit more flavor than expected. Clear golden body. Aroma is medium sweet, pine and some grapefruit. Taste is pine of medium intensity bitterness, some grapefruit, slight caramel malty. Medium body, slightly chewy.

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of lightly toasted pale malts, herbal hops and a faint resiny note. The taste is lightly toasted grain with fruity and floral hops. Medium bodied - refreshing.

Sample at the brewpub. Slightly hazy yellow-gold color with a thin white head that dissipates gradually to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops and grainy malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

MartinT (7860) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Grassy hop bitterness and light cereal husks proffer dry and subtle pictures...Not much to say, but a tasty pint for the house blond ale...

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 14, 2006

Rastacouere (6131) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Clear straw, no head. Very light nose, balanced grain and cereal nose. Typical light quaffable body shows more of that frequently encountered grainy yet balanced well made beer taste in the good brewpubs’ basic beers.
