UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 A glimmer of apricot, a shimmer of herbal hops in dimmer caramel cereal sweetness...All is balanced and drinkable, but quite forgettable for the style... TaktikMTL (7733) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2008

No aroma. Light body, smooth with a light toastiness and a pleasantly light hop finish. Vienna style lager that is slightly better than most I drink. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of saaz hops, some dry maly, spicy. Tastes spicy and peppery with a dry malty finish. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2009
In short: A clean and crisp well malted golden lager perfectly balanced by a generous but smooth hop profile. Superior session golden lager.

How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose has a good amount noble leafy hops and some candy. The attack is some crisp candy/caramel/toffee. The leafy hops quickly take over a kick the sweetness away but without providing much bitterness or dryness sensation. This bear is clean, crisp and more clean and crisp. This is far from the rustic unfiltered Viennas that are served in Vienna Country (Czech Republic) but I can really appreciate this beer as a superior dark lager session beer. Best beer I’ve had from this brewpub. Named after a place where people gather up to listen to a grown-up that doesn’t have sex (except for occasional pedophilia) tell them to worship a long-hair jobless dude who transformed water into wine (exact vintage unkown). Then these people call me weird.
Pours bright gold dark gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Nutty toasted caramel aromas. Soft with sweet caramel and honey from front to back. Lasting doughy finish. johnnnniee (4249) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 31, 2015

Fruity bready aroma and flavor, not horrible but boring. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
Pours a clear golden color with a ring of white lace. Aroma of biscuity malt and citrus. Good subtle flavor of biscuity and grainy malt with citrus. Light body with a dry mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Fred82 (2315) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2010

Overall : Nice citrusy nose and taste. Enjoyable brown sugar and caramel. Nose is nicely fresh and fruity.
Included as part of a sampler. I find Moat offerings to be just average but I seem to keep coming back for more. Another visit, another sampler. Still so so but fresh beer is always good so I’m sure I’ll be back again.
