En ft la brasserie. Beaucoup de grain en olfactif. De couleur dore, elle dveloppe une petite mousse qui fuit rapidement. En entre de bouche, lamertume est trs prsente avec des notes herbaces et terreuses, tout en tant dans le grain. Les saveurs sont boises, cralires et amres. Le houblonnage est mi- herbac et mi terreux. Les saveurs sont trs complexes. De la bonne bire Anglaise dans la plus pure tradition.

on tap on the premises. unclear medium dark golden with a small off-white cap offering some retention and lacing. doughy and sweetish grains - corn, warming alcohol, grapey maltiness - peppery chardonnay, leafy herbalness, clean yeast. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, very mellow, warming, earthy-herbal-leafy finish. excellent pale warming english ale - malt depth with an incredible texture.

JulienHuxley (5772) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Clear deep gold pour with lacy white head. Aroma is bretty, honeyed malts, light leathery notes, boozy fruits. Taste is sweet, boozy, lots of boozy fruits here as well. Palate is med-full bodied, slightly sticky with lots of alcohol warmth. Wasnt a big fan of this one, way too boozy, limited enjoyability.

Un chantillon en ft. Une robe dore. Un nez de fruits, de pche et de houblons aux herbes. Une bouche de miel de trfle. Mon partner de dgustation na pas aussi aim que moi qui la trouve simplement trs bonne.

SlovakSniper (5519) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Beaucoup de fruits comme la pche, les fruits sucrs du verger et la mandarine avec des houblons herbeux. Base de crales remplie de miel il me semble. Ses sucres rsiduels et sa mollesse corporelle nuisent sa buvabilit. Mon partner de dgustation a bien aim tandis que moi je la trouve simplement bonne.

On tap @ LAlbion. Clear golden/amber with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of honeyed cereals, peaches/apricots, light sweetness and herbal/floral notes. Taste is of honey sweetness, fruits (peaches/apricots), herbal/floral notes and unlike most of their beers theres some disturbing residual sugars here. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Sugary finish. A bit cloying, though its tasty.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2013
Superbe bire couleur de miel, lgrement voile et o flotte une fine cume laissant au verre une lgre dentelle durable. Des armes solidement malts de caramel, de conifres et de pamplemousse. Elle est bien amre, avec quelques sucres rsiduels et quelques traces minrales. De corps solide, la texture huileuse, douce effervescence, elle se termine sur une longue amertume et de profond armes.
