Viper666 (3283) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur ambrée et claire. Nez malté de caramel doux aux notes sucrées et rôties, léger de toffee et de butterscotch avec des notes de houblon floral et légèrement herbeux ainsi que des notes fruitées (agrumes), de noisettes et végétales (légumes cuits). Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes huileuses. Goût légèrement fruité (agrumes, faibles traces de pêches) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel doux aux notes de toffee rôti qui progresse vers un goût de caramel au beurre. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger goût amer de houblon floral passant progressivement vers un goût plus terreux et aux notes herbeuses jusqu’en finale. Post-goût moyen et légèrement sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec de faibles notes rôties. (2006)

This was one of my favourite breweries before it changed owners. The new beers I have tried from its replacement Brasserie Dunham have been decent but not quite as good as the predecessor. I was happy to find this but also reticent about how fresh it would be since the brewery has been out of business for a long time. Yet an untried beer from an out of business favourite brewery was too strong a temptation to resist. Thankfully the beer still tasted quite fresh. A very nice bitter with a roasty malt and well hopped bitterness. Very crisp and fresh tasting. I will probably go back to the store and buy the rest of what they have of this. Too bad they did not have any of their IPA, Hoppy. Brasseurs et Freres, RIP.

Bière ambrée, limpide et coiffée d’un immense col blanc laissant une large dentelle au verre. Des arômes fruités de céréales, d’herbes fraîches. Bien amère pour une ale, mais peu pour une bitter... D’un corps honnête, elle est très effervescente. Elle se termine assez rapidement, sur une agréable amertume et quelques arômes plaisants.

(Bouteille) Le liquide a une robe ambrée surmontée d’une petite tête mousseuse. Le nez permet de découvrir sous la base maltée des parfums de légumes et de fruits avec des houblons floraux. Les saveurs vont pratiquement dans le même sens avec des céréales grillées, des fleurs, des traces fruitées et une fine touche épicée. En bouche, le liquide a un corps faible, un pétillement moyen et une texture aqueuse. La finale se fait sur de légères notes amères.

Metalchopz (3312) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2011
Originally rated September 2006. Bought at the Dépanneur À-Tout-Prix in Laval, Quebec. Pours a cloudy caramel-looking colour with a foamy head that stays a while. Not much carbonation. The nose is hoppy-bitter with some light caramel malt. Mouthfeel is a bit on the oily side. The taste is nice and floral at first, with some cereal malt and a sharp hoppy finish. Some mild roasted malt is also present. A very pleasant brew for fans of the hop.

Bouteille 341 ml. 4.5%. Couleur ambrée assez pâle. Arômes de houblon floral et malt. En bouche, douce, notes de houblon et malt. Finale pas trop amère, se boit bien. Bonne.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a small white head. Aroma: Cooked grain/cereal, a green, vegetal note (almost want to call it canned peas), earthy, almost a mushroom note, some biscuit trying to claw its way out, not great. Palate: Medium body, restrained effervescence. Flav.: Better. Some leafy, peppery hops, a bit of pine, less of that vegetal note, some restrained, austere malts, a little burnt sugar, still not great; dry with surprisingly assertive bitterness and a dry, British malt finish with some pepperiness.

Not often a fan of British-style ales. This one doesn’t convert me.

Pours with little head and a decent amber body. Soft aroma of hops and Christmas cake. Taste is very hoppy with a bitter finish. Pretty good for the style, in fact.

DerWeg (1628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2010
This is dark cold with a coppery cast, and off white solid head is rocky. Nose is pretty non-descript - I guess some sweetness and herbal hop. Taste is fairly classic British - earth and herb, stony-dry light bitterness, crisp malt. Creamy Quebec character. A bit soapy feel but overall decent.
