3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at L’Amere a Boire. Poursa slightly hazy reddish amber with a medium white head. Nose is slightly burnt/toasted grain, and sweet malt. Thin to medium bodied and malty. Ends with a light bitterness, and the Hallertau hops really come out here, which, in my opinion is not so good. One of my least favorite hop varities.

Nice amber color, a good dose of hops, with minimal hops, a decent beer, but really nothing special.

[508-20070811] Tap @ L’Amère à Boire (Montréal, QC). Sweet fruit floral aroma. Clear, red amber body with a medium-lasting creamy white head and some lacing. Strong hops flavour with more floral fruit. Medium-full body is slightly astringent. Interesting to try, though maybe not make an evening of it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5 oz. sampler at the brewpub. App.: med. reddish-amber, light copper, clear. Aroma: some fruity male, a vague hint of hops, cherries, apricots and little else...tight! Palate: med. body and soft carbonation. Flav.: a nice helping of citrusy, resinous hops with a solid malt backdrop. A bit of dried fruit and cherries. A bit of a let-down when swallowed--thin, bitter, watery and lacking balance due to malt absence. A hint of roasted malt and alcohol to finish. Better than the first two samplers, but still not great!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. At L’Amère à Boire. Dark amber pour, clear, with a small wisp of creamy off-white head. Aroma of toasty malt and slightly bitter pungent hops. Taste is really pleasing, malt backbone, a nice hoppy middle, with a big malty finish, some alcohol. Solid body, just right, nicely astringent with a syrupy texture on the tongue, has a moderately long mildly bitter finish. I was surprised how good this was, an excellent malty ESB, the sum really is greater than its parts.
