3.4/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Fairly transparent. Good brown color. Medium to thin head. Moderate/fast dissipation and not to much lacing.
S: Slight toasted malts and sweetness in the smell but honestly not that much.
T: Kind of watery. A little bit of that toasted malt flavor that is typical of a brown ale. Very sweet. Not very much hop flavor and very low bitterness. Most of the taste was pretty watery and searching for flavors was required.
M: Goes down pretty easy. A little bit of a creamy mouth feel. Not to thick or to thin.
Overall: It was a pretty good beer. Nothing astounding but I liked it. Didn't have to worry about the skunking from the clear bottles cause I bought it in a can. It was better than average but didn't really provide a unique experience. I might buy it again and could see it being extremely sessionable if that's your game plan.
Serving type: can

On tap in a bar in Quartier Dix30.
Appearance is the best looking part with an obvious brown body and good enough head that has a bit of cascading to it. Flavor is decent, mild nuttiness, easy drinking but pretty ordinary obviously. Still, an ok selection.
Serving type: on-tap

I love the tone. I really like the fact that it has the initial Heineken smell, I also love Heineken. However this beer does not have the heavy aftertaste. I do wish it were a little more potent ;)
Overall I would stock it. There are MANY beers around that Id pass up for this one. I am not into the IPA format. I prefer stout. But I love how smooth this beer drinks.
