Bottle @mondial de la bière. A clear amber beer, nose is on caramel and hops. Aroma is on a classic pale ale, well hopy with resin notes at the finish, good body, malty, good stuff, nice hops bouquet, enjoyable. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 13, 2012
Amber colour. Aroma of floral hops and caramel. Taste is a bit of grapefruit, and a bit of burnt sugar. Very sessionable! Thanks Pat! tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). Bottle November 13th 2012, so this one is 4 month old (crap, didn’t saw it when I bought it). Clear amber with a small fully lasting white head and small lacing. Aroma is of citrus along with floral notes and slight caramel. Hops are faded though. Taste is slightly sweet with a lot of citrus, floral/herbal notes and slight caramel. Herbal finish. Slight but sticky bitterness. Medium body. Slightly watery. Still refreshing and drinkable even with 4-month of age. Pretty decent bottled APA, it’s probably fun too drink (except if it’s a lot more herbal young). Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2013
Pours light copper with medium light-beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of malt, citrus, earth, some caramel. Taste is of malt, citrus, some fruits, bitterness, slightly earthy. Palate: Light body. Nice balance. Overall: Pretty good.

Ambré. Houblonné. Céréale. Foin. Sèche. Désaltérante. Fine amertume. Florale. Douce mais bien. jercraigs (11087) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
2010-08-13. Crisp dark amber body, good sized creamy beige head. 4+ Modest aroma, weedy tea like character, modest resin, mild malt. 6+ Flavour is similar, modest resin and tea like character, light bitterness throughout, light fruity accents. Smooth average palate. Okay, bit different. Resiny character builds in the aftertaste. Growler shared by Blankboy

500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cold in a tulip glass. drougkolya (276) - Otterburn Park, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2011
App.: Clear amber with a large off-white foam.
Aroma: Slightly nutty and earthy, a touch infected?, seem British rather than American, salt and vinegar chips, some caramalt, burnt sugar and C-hops once the yuck clears out, weird start that worked out fairly well in the end.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Better than the nose and more to style, some decent grapefruit and marmalade, almost enough malt backbone for support, quite dry for an APA, without the characteristic caramalt, still decent; dry with pretty good bitterness and a dusty, malty, C-hop finish.
The nose had me worried, but the flavour was reassuring.
Bière de type American pale ale de 5,6% d’alcool, pas mal meilleur que la colborne. Bien houblonné.
