Une blonde fonce un peu trouble, avec un ptillement rgulier mais une mousse pour ainsi dire inexistante. Le nez est de sucre cuit et de mas. La bouche est dans les mmes tons, et une saveur assez ronde, assez franche en rsulte. On gote mme le Saaz en fin de bouche, ce qui en fait, je suppose, une sorte de pilsner sucre. Mais malgr ces quelques impairs, elle est surprenante, dans un style reconnu pour tre surexploit. Bue sous le nom Maple Leaf Lager.

500 ml bottle. Pours a light hazy yellow with a small white head. Aromas are primarily maple taffee, just like a cabane a sucre in Quebec. Tastes are generally standard lager but with a subtle maple taffee twist to it that makes it interesting. The sweetness is subtle enough to make this unique and pleasant. Light body and carbonation with little to no aftertaste. Pleasant surprise!

Apparence: D?une couleur jaune ple ambre, elle est coiffe d?une lgre mousse d?une courte dure. Effervescence inexistante. Armes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de lgre de houblon. Saveurs: Au got, cest trs faible. Il y a rien, pas deffervescence, pas damertume. peine un got de malt. Bref, une bire commerciale.

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Canette de 473 ml achete la LCBO de Hawkesbury, inclue dans le "Discovery pack summer 2010". Dguste le 30 octobre 2010 (shaker). Bire blonde dore. Mousse beaucoup, col pais blanc, crmeux et persistant. Trs effervescente, bulles fines. Lgre odeur de crme, de grain. Saveur fruit un peu mtallique, de miel. Un peu mince, pas compltement satisfaisante mais meilleure que la plupart des Euro-lagers.

500 ml bottle under the name of Maple Leaf Lager. Pours a hazy straw with a short lived white head. Aroma is grains, dust, oranges. Flavor is maize and grains. Finish is a subtle herbal flavor. Light body, watert mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very cheap product.

body has brown amber hue, no carbonation and no head whatsoever. aromas of grain, maize and cooked animal fat. Flavor is thin and balanced, however it musnt be difficult to balance the taste of water. flat, overall boring mouthfeel.

I really dont get this brewery. I tried this brew about a year back and my tasting notes and memory recall a completely different beer, I remember a quite bitter medium-bodied lager with a good heavy hit of Saaz aroma, the tall can i am drinking now is comparable to the average corn adjunct discount lager. Total garbage for a craft microbrew at $2.65 a can. This wouldnt be my first time seeing inconsistency in Trafalgars brews.

bunget (884) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
650ml bottle. Golden yellow body with good yellowish head, decent retention. Aroma is mostly floral, hops, bready, a hint of vanilla. Taste is hoppy, bread, some nuts, nice carbonation. Decent.
