Thanks to hoser for sharing the love with this one.

From a caged and corked 750 ml brown bottle. Pours out a gorgeous clear amber hue, chunky fluffy off-white head with thick swathes of lacing.

Light toasted, caramel malt on the nose, with a good dose of leafy green and earthy hops.

I think the last time I experienced such a well-balanced ale, particularly of this style (or at least pale ales in general) is Fuller's London Pride. This somehow goes a step beyond. Mild caramel, toasted and crystal malt blended smoothly and skillfully with mild earthy, woody, slightly herbal hops. Sweetness of the malt pops up again in the aftertaste to meld once again with spicy, earthy hops, like ballroom dancing that goes on forever.

Mouthfeel also remains on par, smooth, on the full side for the style, good dose of carbonation on the finish, clean and dry.

Leave it to a Quebec brewery to set a precedent on this style. Perhaps a bit more akin to an English Pale Ale, they took those American hops and put them to excellent use. Thus far THE most enjoyable and balanced pale ale I've tried. This one most certainly gets a hell yeah! (1,143 characters)
