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. Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 18, 2006
Pours hazy amber with bright white (fine) head. Aroma dominated by sugars , malt and ripe fruits (at finish). Green bitter on the front, slight raw, grainy soft middle. Average. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2006
The body was dark orange with a near copper tint. There was a white head. The aroma was walnuts with some tea. There was also some fresh cut wood. The taste was bitter with some tea and bread crust. There was also some grapefruit. Quevillon (3196) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2006

I didn’t realy like this one. A ltttle malt on the nose, a ltiitle dry hop on the mouth. Silky, acidic, dry caromel finish. Some lemon grass, some mace, some sweet touches. Not realy a artisan beer, more of a standard session ale. I come here for more intresting ales. Cheers Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2005
A unique combination of English yeast and saaz, golding and other hops, munich malt. Complex taste. Dry bitter, acidic mouthfeel good with food. Medium mouthfeel, nicely hopped and nicely malted Ungstrup (38986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a small orange head. The aroma is very yeasty - as if it hasn’t finished fermenting, combined with notes of brewmash. The flavor is quite hoppy with a touch of alfa acid and oranges, leading to a dry slightly metallic end. There is no congruence between the aroma and the flavor.

Draught at the brewpubDickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Dark amber, off-white nice head, lots of lacing. Nose of plenty of columbus hops and rich malty body. The flavor is a bit dry and light bodied, nice mouthfeel though and very drinkable.
Pretty much all the brew pubs serve an amber ale in Montreal. All are pretty bland except this one. Nice medium amber with a thick light tan head and good lace. Awesome sweet malty smell blended with lots of earthy and herbal noble hops. Also a bit of fruitiness throughout the aroma and flavor. Flavor is mostly caramel malts with some of that dark bready munich flavor. Some hop bitterness in the end as well. Finishes smooth and clean.
