Ouais, une macro, ne soyons pas snob même si j'ai appris a aimer la bière a 16 ans en découvrant le Fin du monde D'Unibroue....avant c'était de la colt45, molson et autres pissetes imbuvable donnant mauvaise réputation au saveurs possibles de la bière. Alors, ici, ce n'est quand même pas un Budweiser ou pire une Coors ou Molson ou Bud....mais, c'est une Rousse alors la barre est plus haute et comparativement a la Sleeman Dark cela ne vole pas haut pour une rousse!!! C'est fade avec une très faible carbonation, le malt est poisseux, sucré et fade, cela goute le carton, le caramel, le malt poisseux, et la tondeuse rouillé. Voilà. Et au nez je semble discerner le silo qui a servit a brasser en vitesse cette pauvre bière. J'espère que les amateurs de rousse sans imagination ou prisonnier de routine ou fanatisme oseront gouter d'autres rousse macro du genre la boréal et même la Belle Gueule qui font fit de chef-d'oeuvre comparativement a cette immondice de médiocrité tout en retenu poisseuse.

Looks pretty nice and smell is good too, but it's for a first glance. However, after a first drink sip I felt clear chemical taste. It was one of the worst beers I've ever tried. Strong head ache in the morning just after 4*340ml. Don't recommend it

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2017 Sampled this one at St Paul's Pub in Ol' Montreal. A heavenly rouge! Perfect for a sunny afternoon.

Not the best red ale I have tasted. The different tasting notes are quite flat.

BrewWhatIWant (323) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2017
Pours dark red with a slight haze and a decent white head. Aroma is malty and herbal. Taste is a little sweet, a little bitter. There are notes of roasted malt, caramel, grains, corn and herbal hops but everything seems muddy. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Fifteen years ago this beer was game changing for me, today it’s the tolerable option when I find myself somewhere that only serves macro.

Lovely smell and taste, but a bit dull in the mouth. Acceptable beer on tap, but not the best red ale.

Got this at a bar before a poker tournament in St-Jerome, with a slice of Orange, good times!

Draft in Toronto. Amber pour. Tastes better than most of the Molson coors selections. Caramel. No bitter. Not great but not bad.
