SuperTiti33 (888) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
Blonde clair et limpide. Peu de collet. Nez: faible. métallique. Houblon. Savon. Bouche: légère. Une peu madérisé. Houblon florale. Savon. Fine effervescence. Un peu âcre en finale. Légèrement fruité. Pomme. Je crois qu'elle est un peu vieille. Cependant pas décevante si on oubli le petit côté métallique.

A nicely hopped beer. An IPA for days you dont want a hop assault nor a malt assault. Very good summer drinkability. Lots of head.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
Lgrement trouble, cette blonde dore mince offre des armes de crales plutt puissants, ainsi quun peu de mas sucr. Au got, elle voque les blondes houblonnes un peu sucres, assez dynamiques et rafrachissantes. Un peu aqueuse, elle a cependant cette petite amertume qui la rachte. En tant que bire "de base" de cette brasserie qui nous as habitus plus complexe, cest une russite du genre. Bref, elle atteint son but de bire de soif, mais elle ne suscite pas les passions.

Bottle 341ml. Pours blond with low white head. Aroma is of malt, hop. Taste is the same. Palate: ligth body. Overall: Not a very interesting beer, but it does the job. Interesting sligth hops. Not my favorite from Dunham.

AlainG (2190) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Blonde coiffe dune mousse persistante qui se colle au verre afin de lui laisser une dentelle minimale. Au nez, les armes fraches de malt et de houblon russissent, avec leur ct minimaliste, me charmer. Le got est tout aussi typique que ses autres caractristiques, avec des saveurs fruites, florales et houblonnes. Il y a une texture minrale qui complte bien son processus de sduction. (418-221012)

Fred82 (2281) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
341ml from Duchesse daiguillon.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with small white foamy head.
Aroma : Honey notes with light malt. Herbal hops.
Taste : Honey with malt and some herbal hops. Finish herbal with honey. Moderate bitterness. Light spicy hops.
Palate : Soft carbonation.
Overall : Slightly boring and uneventful. Not much defects that I can detect. Cleanly brewed just not very flavorful. Decent but nothing worth having again.

dandeman (955) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
Aroma: A bit malty with notes of coriander but very unpleasant sour accent. Appearance: Hazy straw with greenish accents. Head is creamy and long lasting with nice lacing. Taste: Attack is malty with notes of butter biscuits. Hops are taking place after and we can feel the sparkling and refreshing taste. A good carbonation. Despite the sour nose this ale is pleasant, well balanced and refreshing. Good bitterness; almost a pale ale.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Polished pale malts sign this Golden Ales flavor profile, leading the way for leafy hop resins and their deft bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam tops the misty blond.
-The pale malts are ever-so-slightly toasted and quite aromatic.
-The hop bitterness might surprise a few unsuspecting drinkers at the pub, but if you know Dunham brews, there would be no surprise at all.
-More aromatic hops could enhance the overall experience.
-This is not a brew thats going to score well on Ratebeer, but its nicely extracted malt flavors still make it stand out within its category.
-The hop finish is a tad vegetal at times.

Eructoblaster (4140) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Blond body with a fair, lasting white frothy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with spicy and flowery hints. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste with grainy and piney notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Very enjoyable blond ale.
