bouteille de 500ml, bière rousse, nez de houblon, bouche houblonne, bonne amertume en fin de bouche, un peu de poussière marque le tout ce qui déplait. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2009
In short: A well hopped light-bodied Pale Ale. Entry level but well done.GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
How: Bottles 500ml. Consumed very fresh soon after the beer release. Tasting session with Montreal crew
The look: Partially cloudy (first glass of bottle) to totally cloudy (last glass of bottle) copper body topped by a very thin off-white head
In long: Nose of leafy and woody hops with a fruity touch. Body is very light but not watery. Carbonation is a bit too much for the thin body. This beer needs more body. Basic neutral malt backbone offering flavourless toasted white bread with a tiny bit of caramel. Next come the woody resinous hops with a medium intensity bitterness. Easy to drink, half-refreshing, nothing problematic but overall very basic. Nothing memorable here but given that this is the first round of bottles from a brand new brewery I say that this is promising. I can name good many breweries that didn’t start that good. I can also name many established breweries that are still not that good. I can also name a few breweries where that do not offer any free parking but what would be pretty irrelevant.
Aroma:good hops nose,grapefruit...
Appearance: Deep amber with a lot of chunk of yeast...
Flavor:Good bitterness,grapefruit,light caramel.... papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
Appearance: Amber, orange-like body that looks kind of hazy & murky with some sediment floating around. Lots of bubbles and a thick foamy white head.
Smell: Tiny bit of pine, sign of hops. A bit of bitterness & grassy in nature but not much else. Aroma is kind of muted.
Taste: Strongest point of the beer. A good tinge of hops presence but not too much. It leaves a nice mellow bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit malty around the edges with a fairly abrupt, clean finish. The last gulps have a bit of a mineral, earthen quality due to the lees.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation but a little watery though. Still smooth a bit but lacks texture a bit.
