MartinT (9617) - 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.

On tap at Vices et Versa.

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.

Boutip (6139) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a nice white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of sweet cereal notes with light floral undertones. Taste is also dominated by sweet cereal notes with limited floral notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing to write home about but no brewing flaws either.

Eructoblaster (4049) - 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.

AlainG (2100) - 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)
