Part of my north-of-the-border haul, purchased at La Halte A Malt in the picturesque village of L'Assomption, Quebec. Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into Spaten mug. One word: gorgeous! From the head to the aroma, from the color to the taste, a beautiful beer; three fingers of vibrant white mousse; grainy aroma with hop highlights; medium-plus mouthfeel reveals full-bodied flavor;terrific finish leaves me wanting more; even the bottle is a beauty; this one's worth the 300-mile drive alone.

Bomber picked up at Peluso and split with Viggo.

Bright light golden pour with a couple fingers of white head that left some good lacing as it dropped to a heavy film. Sweet herbal aroma has a string bready background, with a nice spicy and grassy kick to it.

The flavour impresses me despite the beer's low average going into this review. True, it has a significant sweetness, but i feel its nicely balance by peppery, herbal and grassy hopping. I also really dig the bready core of this beer, which makes it a pleasing drink. Its also more substantial than I expected with a chewy body and billowing carbonation, which bulks things up even more.

Another highly drinkable offering from one of Canada's best breweries. I don't hesitate to buy from these guys anymore - I've had about a dozen of their brews and only one has disappointed. They remind me a little of Great Lakes with their take on the German styles...it would be interesting to do some side-by-sides.

From a 750ml bottle.

App: bright yellow straw color, slightly hazy with a thick, creamy, bright white head and leaving some nice lacing around the glass.

Smell: Freshly baked bread, biscuit, cracker, malt sweetness, suddle fruity yeastyness, grass and hay.

Taste: very bready, malty with an herbal and grassy hop finale and residual sweetness from the malt without being cloying at all and remaining somewhat clean and crisp. It is very well balanced. Edit: The last glass really brings out alot of the bananas, cloves and pepper from the yeast settling at the bottom which i wasnt getting as much from the first glass, adding complexity to the beer. Very well done.

Reminiscent of the lager you might have had with your dad back in the day but 10 times better, tastier and more complex. A great example of how good a lager beer can be. It kinda reconciled me with the style. I wish i would see more local craft brewers do good lagers like this. This is a perfect intro beer for people new to craft beer and will please beer connoisseur aswell. I will buy again. Highly recommanded. 8.3/10 (overall) - 9.5/10 (lager)

A - crystal clear straw colour, bubbly, tall white head that dissipated slowly leaving ransom sticky lacing
S - wheat and corn, herbal and buttery with a light fusel-like aroma
T - corn with spicy herbal hop notes, moving to a light buttery popcorn with a definite alcohol sweetness, similar to classic czech pils flavours in many ways
M - light body and good carbonation, slightly dry and bready finish with the alcohol enhancing the feel
D - very impressed, a nice mix of light hop and grain/corn flavours, the alcohol is present but not a distraction, a very drinkable 8%

Moderate, bready, malty aroma. Slightly spicy alcohol and a touch of hot alcohol on the nose. Quite good. A touch fruity. Yum.

Perfectly clear straw colour with a big, fluffy white head. Good head retention. Nice lacing.

Smooth, sweet malt. Neutral finish. Quite fruity but I like it. Spicy alcohols.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Silky and smooth.

A very tasty beer. Plenty going on and it isn't over the top.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: It has a beautiful deep and hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of honey, floral notes, citrus, grassy hops and bready/biscuity malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet honey, a grassy bitterness, citrus, flora hops, bready malts and some faint grains.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Wow very refreshing and enjoyable.

Handsome 750mL bottle from the LCBO, part of the Spring 2013 release. It's April but snowing so a beer that fits the changing of the seasons is in order for today. $6.90.

Poured into a tulip glass. A hazy honey golden brew, with a billowing head of a couple of inches that settles into a thin sticky ring. Good lacing on this.

Nose is citrus, herbs, bread, biscuit, noble hops, a bit of honey sweetness.

Very nice indeed - the honeyed bread provides a nice counter to the citrus and noble hop bitterness. Went down extremely well, yet had some complexity to it.

Carbonation is a bit sharp, medium bodied.

Very nice brew for this time of year, like a pale spring morning still clinging to winter's chill. There's sweetness and bitterness working together. Might get another bottle or two.

750ml bottle corked and caged poured into matching glass from the gift pack paired with the Baltic Porter, downed nov29 2009

A light yellow with a fast falling large head that left little lace

S as the bottle says lots of cereal's but unlike whats written on the bottle I get some honey and citrus

T a little more focused on a mild sweetness and some hops then what I got from the nose

M decent carbonation makes it feel a little thicker then it is

D for 8% it's very easy to drink, however I doubt I will drink this again because it's hard too find and way overpriced in the gift pack (unless the Baltic Porter is crazy good)

you can only get this in the gift pack in Alberta and to be honest I don't really like Maibock but this is a pretty good one

Les Trois Mousquetaires Maibock has a tone like an ideal spring afternoon. Its golden colour blisters along the sides and bottom of the glass (though turns up bright and sunny when held up to the light). It comes served with a massive whipped cream topping and hundreds of bubbles that hover and are raised up like tiny flying saucers being sucked into a strong updraft.

The aroma, which frankly smells like little more than lightly toasted white bread, is actually quite rich and pleasurable provided you can appreciate beer solely for its basic fundamentals. This scent of clean pilsner malt is complimented by low melanoidins, a faint whiff of noble hop spice and florals, lemon juice, as well as some considerably impactful alcohol vapors.

This blond lager has the kind of subtle flavour profile that would drive Procter and Gamble nuts - they couldn't resist adding artificial flavours to something this plain and simple. While it's true this doesn't have the stuff to turn heads, its grainy maltiness is so remarkably real, rich and wholesome. It is a lager lover's lager... punched up a notch.

The taste has a distinctively dry, cracker-like maltiness. Though permeated by prominent alcohol notes, a hint of honey flavour, sweet corn and an occasional, very minor pinch of peppery spice serve to sufficiently mellow things out. All in all, the palate is left immersed in airy floral and lemony notes and a grassiness that further dries things out. Very agreeable.

As is typical for the style, Les Trois Mousquetaires Maibock is a beer that leaves out all details save for the most practical. While it offers only the bare essentials, these are not only among the finest quality but also apportioned very generously. It's a good thing this brewer has a penchant for German styles because his beers epitomize those traditions masterfully.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a pale golden colour, thumb of light fluffy head with solid retention and nice sporadic lacing.

S - Nice sweet grassy notes, sweet corn, wheat, hints of citrus rind and a hint of apple juice.

T - Much like the nose with the grassy notes dominating, surprising amount of bitter citrus rind, toasted crackers, bready wheat and a the touch of apple juice comes through on the finish.

M - Lighter bodied ale, a tad prickly and a touch of dryness on the finish.

O - A fantastic brew, light and refreshing yet surprisingly bold for the style. Flavours are pronounced and are certainly a great way to ring in the spring. Well worth a try and I will snatch up a few extra bottles before they disappear.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy pale yellow body. Large eggshell head, moderate retention, patchy lace. Looks like a weissbier with less foam. Floral and yeasty bread dough aroma, like an amped up pilsner or helles, with a hint of honey. Mildly sweet with doughy and cereal flavours up front, and lemon zest, then a spicy/herbal finish. Moderate bitterness. It drinks like a stronger, more flavourful helles, or even pilsner on the lower side of bitterness. Medium bodied with relatively low carbonation. Rich, substantial mouthfeel, but not heavy or thick. No alcohol heat. Full-flavoured but approachable and very familiar.
