COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The best barley of all grows on the Magdalen Islands. We harvest the windblown, salt-kissed grains and use them to concoct a malt with a maritime accent that gives our beers their unique character. Come to our microbrewery À l'Abri de la Tempête, relax by the sea shore and dip your lips in a brew as fine as spindrift.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry. Decants from the bottle, a pale and sparkling gold with a one finger of white fizz. The aroma is sugar and grains with shortbread cookies and straw, and hints at yeast. The flavour profile is surprisingly sweet and shows grains, bread crust, fruit and doughy accents. Average carbonation and a decent finish with a bit too much residual sugar. Standard stuff. Thanks Harry!

20071025 Bottled Feb 07. Pale gold, thin white head. Aroma is bready, white toast, bit of cantaloupe. Flavor has light citrus bite, mineral, salty. Wet graininess. Not particularly good or refreshing which pretty much defeats the purpose of the style.

341ml bottle from HogtownHarry; Nose of sweet corn with a little skunkiness; clear gold with a medium yellowish head; flavor a little sweet with graininess and a tiny bit of background hops.

Bright gold, small head. Nose of corn, fresh hay, metal and a hint of iode. Sweetness reminiscent of corn, and a metallic bitterness saved by a hint of saltiness. Body is on the light side. I agree with MDS, it lacks precision. If it weren’t for the saltiness, it would otherwise be plain boring.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2008
Bouteille 341 ml. Mousse en dentelle qui reste présente longtemps pour finalement disparaître complètement. Couleur or. Au nez des arômes de malt et de pêche-pomme. En bouche, elle possède un corps faible-moyen. On goûte beaucoup la céréale avec un petit goût de pêche et une mince amertume vient se présenter à nos papilles.

rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2007
bouteille brune de 341ml prix de 2,99$ couleur vieil-or foncé, la mousse blanche a disparu rapidement, léger odeur de malt canadien, goût semblable aux bières canadiennes des méga-brasseurs, avec une légère amertume plus prononcée. trop lourde pour être rafraichissante et pas assez gouteuse pour être bu pensif.

dmac (6262) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2007
11.2 oz bottle brought back from Montreal. Tart fruity aroma mostly of peach. Poured a clear golden yellow with a fomay white head. Flavor was fairly lousy with an overall musty cheese taste with some biterness thrown in. Think pale lager with a bitter bite. Wouldn’t waste my time on this one.

2.4
mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a light, clear, golden body with a medium sized soft white head. Fairly pleasant sweet grain aroma, some dough, and minerals. The body is really light with mineral crispness up front. Very thin and plain with mostly nondescript flavours.

2.9
JChapmanMTL (15) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2007
341mL bottle. Pale gold colour with pure white head. Very light and refreshing. Flavour is light and quite sweet, with a bit of a grassy taste. Sweetness lasts longer than expected with a bit of a salty aftertaste. Excellent for relaxing in summer if you want something refreshing but a bit more interesting than your average lager.

robinvboyer (4666) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 330ml bottle: Pale golden yellow, good carbonation. Nose of grains, and malt Flavour is somewhat grassy, and sweet malt, with a slight touch of fruity peach?. Nothing to write home about, but quite a bit better than most lagers.
