Verre de dégustation à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel et d’épice. Apparence: Couleur ambrée. Carbonisation faible. Petit col qui forme une dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’épice et de caramel avec légère touche de sucré. Palette: Aucune amertume en bouche. Très agréable à boire. (Rating #50) Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2004
Deep sandy red, hazy and wearing a small off-white cover. Fresh malt aroma not unlike fruit flavored cake or bread. Crushed perfumey nutmeg, rather buttery in a scottish way. Pleasant hoppiness. Comfortable mouthfeel. Typical well balanced Amère à Boire lager. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2004
Pours a cloudy, reddish color with a thin creamy white head. Spicy aroma including cinnamon. Subtle flavor of spices and fruit with a sweet finish. Medium body, smooth palate. Very good, I make sure to sample it every year in the Christmas season. tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2004
Mildly spicy hops play nicely with the caramel in the nose. Almost opaque amber-brown with decent, large-bubbled, off-white head that recedes to generous cover with some lacing. Caramel and toffee malt flavours dominate with a spicy hop flavour and decent balanced bitterness. Engaging carbonation on the tongue. On tap at the brewpub.

Orange red in colour. Nice vinous nose. Sweet malts in tatse with notes of raisin, caramel, some light hops. Rich body dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2002
This is a crisp, bitter red pilsner. It has a resounding Saaz hop bitterness that plays well with the malt charcter of the beer. Quite a unique product in North America. MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 The biscuity pale malt nose is followed by healthy fruity caramel...Spicy hops and these cohesive malt flavors lead to a balanced realm of nourishment and drinkability...Who else in North America but L’Amère à Boire would offer us such a rare style (a 15-degree Czech Polotmavé for crying out loud) for a refreshing Christmas?... omhper (25250) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2002
Amber coloured. Malty, medium to full bodied, sweetish, moderately bitter...
