La Machault est un Extra Special Bitter ou ESB pour les intimes. Ce type de bire typiquement anglais est trs apprci partout dans le monde. Les ESB sont de proche cousine des Pale Ale donc, comme ces dernires, se sont des bires bien maltes avec un houblon prsent. De couleur ambre, la Machault laisse transparatre des reflets cuivrs. Elle se dmarque par un gout trs malt qui laisse des notes de caramel lger et de biscuit. Les houblons utiliss (varits Northern Brewers et Golding) lui confre un arme semblable au th que les Anglais aiment tant. Son amertume est bien prsente, mais pas agressive. Cette dernire permet de laisser un got agrable et persistant en bouche.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2016
On tap they pour a glass of foam that slowly constructs into a clear dark amber color, with a red hue, but with no visual activity. Creamy beige 2-3 finger high definition head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with faint lacing. Flavors of roasted grains like barley, some nutmeg, a bit of ginger, caramel, lemon, peppercorn, leafy tea spices. More sweet than bitter, feel of biscuits. Slick oily medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Medium strength finish, well intensified, lingering sweet toffee, flowery hops, and faint earthy spices. Lacking the sharp crispiness from a true ESB. Okay freshness. Tasty flavors that are nicely balanced. Overall good quality craft.

DuffMan (10141) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
On tap @ the brewpub, enjoyed as part of their "compass style" degustation tasting tray. Dark orange amber with a lasting white head. Toasty caramel aroma with tropical fruit hoppy goodness. Nice intensity to the aroma and the flavour, more nutty nuances on the palate ( pecans). Moderate slightly earthy finish.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
Trs jolie bire cuivre et limpide coiffe dun fin col beige laissant une fine dentelle au verre. Elle offre un nez trange... Des armes lacts de caramel lger et de vanille rappelle trangement le sucre la crme! Bire quelque peu sucre avec une amertume bien en dea de ce dont je mattendrais dune "bitter". Effervescence moyennne avec une fin un peu dcevante.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2010
In short: A nourishing toasted ale with lots of leafy/woody hops. Nice beer.
How: Tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a small beige head leaving good lacings
In long: Nice nose of leafy hops and toasted crusty bread. Taste packs a good amount of toasted cereals with a flavor that is between bread crust and cake. Sweetness is reminiscent of St- Catherines Taffy. Good amount of leafy hops brings a wooden bitterness. Perfect balance. More nourishing than refreshing. A winter session beer. Nothing like the soft refreshing true English ESBs. The beer is straightforward yet it is not quite any other beer Ive had. I could (and will) down many pints of this beer. Ah crap, another nice session beer from Quebec. Its because of all those good quebec micros that I have fat in all the wrong places. Now only a carnival mirror can make me look normal. Or really really freaky.
