Une pinte sur place. 4,5% alcool. Le liquide surprend par la robe rousse foncée. La mousse est brune. Je m’attendais à une robe plus dorée. Le nez est malté, caramel et une belle présence houblonnée. En bouche la bière est corsée, le caramel domine les houblons qui se font sentir qu’avec une amertume agréable en fin de bouche.

Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
A lightly hazed golden ale with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, pleasant British hops, with caramel notes, orange pulp, very classy. In mouth, a good malt base with nice pinhey hops, grapefruit notes, pleasant and classy ESB. On tap at brewpub, Dec. 5 2009.

Radek Kliber (7359) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 14, 2005
Pours creamy top, golden amber. Sweet fruity, soft hop character in the nose much like their IPA. Clean bodied with recognizable hop character. Smooth . Neat and clean . Good bitter.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2005
on tap at the brewpub, pours a golden brown, with a creamy layer of tan head. aroma was hoppy, with hints of caramel malts. there was a lot of citrus, maybe orange mixed with the caramel malts on the front end of the taste, giving way to the pucker up bitterness of the end, with a long lasting bitterness well after the beer was gone.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Deep golden, with slight reddish hues, with a light, clingy lace. Shy hoppy smell at first, but as the pint went down and got a little warmer the piney, almost pot-like goldings started to shine through. Lip-smaking and bitter, with decent carbonation for the style and good body with a long cereal finish. An enjoyable session ale.

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2005
Dark yellow with fast fading head. The aroma announced a bitterness invasion... which arrived as grapefruits and citrus aromas were felt. Interesting round palate. Good firm bitterness till the finish. I liked it.

3.2
beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
Clear golden color with a very thin head. Aroma of peppery hops with hints of caramel. Flavor of peppery hops with hints of caramel and a strong, lasting, bitter finish. Lacks a little something to be really good.

3.5
Eructoblaster (4205) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2005
Light amber body topped with diminishing creamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and spicy notes. Well-balanced and relatively complex taste. Flavors of hops (Golding) with herbal and grapefruit hints. Mild texture. Long bitter finish. Very nice!
