Tranquillity (3001) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2017
Draft at the st ambroise brewery in Montreal. The body is yellow with a small white head. The aroma has sweet malts. The taste is sweet and reminds me of corn.

Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
Bright golden color with moderate pearly activity. Foamy 1 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of sweet grains, corn syrup, green jolly rancher, lemon, mint, herbal spices. Very sugary, unbalanced and excessive, with sharp fruity citrus feel. Slick and smooth medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Strong finish, thick leafy hops with lingering caramel, grassy and slightly earthy, with dry sour lemon. Very sharp sourness on the tongue at first, you get used to it, although I’m finding it too coarse like a fishermans friend. Highly alcoholic, feels like malt liquor and it’s quite metallic. A hint of adjunct coupled with mediocre freshness. The taste is below average quality. Overall mediocre quality craft.

341 bottle. Clear golden color. Medium head. Delicate taste. Some bitterness. Good, not great.

KansaiBeerLvrs (6350) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 7, 2016
At Au Pied De Cochon. Blond color, foamy head and a grainy fruity aroma. The taste is tangy lemon and crackery wheat/malts. It seems a little acidic but isn’t that bad. Definitely a pretty boring beer that doesn’t live up to the intense flavors you expect at Au Pied du Cochon but firmly in line with McAuslan’s middle of the road brews.

On tap at the brewery terrace as part of a 12$ tasting set.Griffon blonde is a crystal clears old with an rough earthy light grainy aroma.smooth satisfying body the taste is a bit coarse, sweet caramel a bit buttery - possibly diacetyl. Grainy sweet mild caramel is how I would sum it up. Average to sub-par.

AleRider78 (2088) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Poured a pale blonde colour with a foamy creamy head. Quite active carbonation. thick lacing. Aromas of malts and wheats, slightly grainy. Has much citrus flavours to it and it’s slightly sweet. Creamy mouthfeel and a bit tingly. Pretty smooth going down, making it an easy drinking beer. Pretty good, prefer over the St Ambroise Pale Ale (both McAuslan)

TaktikMTL (8009) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
En fût. Verre de 12 oz dégusté directement à la brasserie au coût de 4.00$. Arôme: Légère odeur de fruité avec une très légère pointe de beurre. Apparence: La couleur est blonde avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de céréales avec une pointe de fruité et de beurre. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. (Rating #6419)
