(En cask à la brasserie): Un pain intégral qui trainasse près d’un melon d’eau juteux. Fruité, brillament malté et sèche comme il se doit.

Un bon exemple de pale ale anglaise traditionnelle et bien faite. De bons arômes, une bonne base maltée.

Lukaduke (3121) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a deep golden almost Amber color with a finger of foam. Nose is a bit of grass and some toasted malts. Palate is clean just a bit more malt apparent than hop flavors. Hops add nice bitterness to clean up the finish but overall this was the least appealing of their offerings.

On cask at the brew pub. Pours a clear orange with a medium to large white head. Light delicate hops on the nose, Very faint orange and citrus peels, soft bitterness, malt and light toast. Moves into a soft malty finish with a bit more bitterness. Very easy drinking, somewhat delicate.

solidfunk (8352) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Doesn’t have much of a smell. Pours orange clear with some lacing. Really nothing going on in character here, just malt for the most part. Lacks any real hop profile. On cask at the brewpub.

BeerGolem (815) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
Pinte (cask) à L’Amère à boire (Montréal). Robe ambrée foncée, semi-opaque. Collet blanchâtre qui se dissipe totalement. Légère dentelle. Arôme de houblon terreux et de malt. Goût semblable. Pas très ronde en bouche. Rien de particulièrement intéressant.

On tap at L’Amère à Boire, pours a clear orange amber with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is lightly fruity (berries and green apples), a bit of perfume and earthy dry hops. Flavour is very earthy and dry, with dry toasted bread, zero sweetness or fruitiness as detected in the nose. Soft mouthfeel, with a lingering dry breadiness that is almost a bit metallic. Decent pale ale. The bartender mentioned that this wasn’t the best batch of the pale ale, which is reportedly more hoppy and slightly fruitier. Would be happy to revisit it on a subsequent visit.
