Très bonne bonne ale à la fois légère et amère. Un arome de céréal frais et un petit goût de fruit. HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2006
Dark honey amber with sticky-thick head. Malty flavour with some hop dryness on the finish. After a few ounces it kind of reminds me of an English ESB. turg (156) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2005
Bottle. Appearance: Amber-orange with white foamy head. Aroma: great aroma, fruity and hoppy. Flavor: malty, citrous. CoolerKing (14) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Amber-orange in colour, pours with a foamy head. Nice earthy, fruity aroma. Very easy drinking ale, nice balance between slight fruity taste and mildly bitter finish. rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2005
Bottle. Amber color with a off-white head and good lacing. A bit cloudy. Caramel malt and honey notes in the flavour. A medium-bodied with a very good hop bouquet.. The taste is malty with a nice hoppy bitterness. Long and a bit bitter after taste finish. Great balance. Solid and enjoyable. The majority of macros don’t come close to this. This is a ale that I have recently developed a taste for as an everyday beer.

12oz bottle, brought back from Montreal. BB 28 FEV 06. Served at 55.5°/13°C in my Duvel tulip. Pours reddish copper with a small, off white head. The beer coats the glass and leaves foam spattered around the edges. The aroma is caramel, earthy, spicy hops, fragrant. The flavor is light malt with a strong earthiness at first that turns into a mighty earthy, rye bread, slightly spicy, pine flavor and finishes moderately bitter with some mild citrus fighting it’s way along the earthy hops. A nice pale ale. The hops used are not my favorite. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2005
A really nice alternative to the usual characteristics of American Pale Ales. Much more restrained in the hops and subtle. Very drinkable. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with boutip (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and somewhat fruity. Tastes of citrus, flowers and fruity. I found the tastes to be on the watery side with a thin body. Ligthtly sweet and very lightly bitter. Snoro (306) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2005
Une blonde avec trop d’arrère goût, trop acre, amer dès la première gorgé et reste longtemps en bouche. Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Nice looking ale with a great aroma - fruity and hoppy. Very easy drinking - almost disturbingly so. Clean, slightly sweet with a strong character.
A perfect summer brew. How I missed this one is a mystery to me. I will be putting this on my (ever growing) list of regulars.
