look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I was rather surprised to see a 6-er at my local LCBO, and recall having it years ago when visiting Montreal.

A - Pours a nice dark golden colour, thin layer of head with little retention and no lacing.

S - Sweet corn, light caramel undertones, very bready with hints of pilsener-like grassy hop notes.

T - Reminiscent of a more flavourful mass produced lager like Canadian, but loads more bready malts and the grassy hops are also coming through quite well. Sweet corn lingers alongside a leafy bitter aftertaste.

M - No complains here, easy drinking and smooth.

O - Tasty ale, and given the style its fitting and offers up a solid dose of flavour for what is otherwise a fairly tame style. I would certainly prefer this over some other mass produced lagers.

Had on tap in Montreal (Bobards). Pours a clear faint gold, shiny white head, looks like a lot of carbonation, lots of bubbles. Scent is really non-apparant, a bit of grain, not much else. Taste is pleasant, some malty sweetness, mouthfeel is dry, crisp and drinkable. Overall, not bad, average and nothing special.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Really nice color, a yellow-orange color but very brilliant, with a well formed head that dissipates slowly, bubbles are small, compact and many.

S: This is the poorest part, barley is sensed but is not too intense or complex.

T: It is a pleasant tasting really malty as a lager should be but somehow a short flavor.

M: A really little sweet at the beginning changing slowly to a faint bitterness that last in the tongue and something in the throat, not to intense the sweet nor the bitter.

D: Refreshing tasting with a satisfactory sensation combined with the flavor makes a good combination.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

341ml bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance - pours a clear golden yelow colour with a huge foamy off-white head. There is lots of carbonation and there is a decent amount of lacing left on the glass.

Smell - Hops barley and yeast. Also a sweet corn smell.

Taste & Mouth - Low carbonation on the drink, which is surprising because it looks like there is lots. Comes across as slightly watery. Starts off somewhat dry with some hops and a breadiness and finishes light and refreshing.

Drink - An average beer, probably not something I would buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Probably one of the best of the lot of a mixed case of beers from this brewer, but overall still just an average beer.

Looks good enough. Clear gold with a moderate head that settles to a film. Gives a surprising amount of lace. Gentle aroma of grassy hops and bready malts. Flavour dominated by bitter hops laid down on a decent malt backbone. Finishes metallic with a lingering bitterness. Moderate nothfeel - not watery nor overbearing.

Well put together for an average brew.

Bottle- Charred golden colour with a decent white cap. Aroma is biscuity malts and some grassy/floral hops. Good hop bite albiet a bit watery with the malts and sweetness. Mineral bread finish. I'm willing to give this one a second chance if I see it again.

Ok I had try every Belle gueule of the mix pack
with rousse,pilsner,lager d'hiver and this one
an american pale lager, and this is the best (and the original, thats the name of it)

This one look the more inviting to be drink:
more head that stay until the end,with lacing and retention. Nice amber,blond color,with very fine bubbles, nice carbonation.

It smell malty

Taste is nice: malty,its well balanced
bitterness is enjoyable but not over the top.

mouthfeel is alright,quite smoothe and crisp

Drinkability is good: I would drink more of that stuff during any party or hockey game or dinner
