My coworker gave me 1 bottle to give it a try because he didn t like it.
The smell is OK, nothing to special about it.
Lots of carbonation inside the glass with 1 finger of head.
Nice looking light beer inside the glas that u can see through.
the taste.... Nothing to special, when u drink it, it's alright. It's only at the end of the glass, that the beer taste actually better.
If you have the choice take a Boreale Red Ale or the IPA boreale is much much better
Or for a lower price you can get a Budweiser or Labbat 50 for almost the same style.
So would I recommend it ? Probably not. It's not that bad but, could be much better.

Served on-tap at Foufounes Electriques in Montreal.

A - Golden yellow in color, suprising amount of head, bartender had to repour a couple times.

S - Not much, smelled like a low-end Blonde Ale. A general fermenty smell, and perhaps some lemon peel. Not offensive, but not neccesarily pleasant.

T - Same as the aroma, not offensive, just not that good. A general fermenty taste up front with a bit of hops. The aftertaste was slightly bitter, what I'd imagine a flower might taste like. A bit of the cheap sweetness of an AAL in the aftertaste, too.

F - Suprisingly not really refreshing. Kind of sticky and left my mouth feeling kinda dry. Did feel easy on the throat and stomach, though.

O - I'm not a huge fan of Blonde Ales, so perhaps I'm prejudice, but this really isn't that good of a beer. There are many better Blonde Ales. I'd rather drink this brew than most AAL's, but I don't see myself ever drinking it again.

On tap @ Le Saint-Sulpice in Montreal, Quebec on 5/31/2013.

Clear golden color that you could see right through with a small white head. Minimal head retention. Biscuit malt aroma, very grainy, with a touch of hops.  Slightly sweet flavor but very light. Strong carbonation made this a thirst quenching, easy drinking beer on a hot day. Wouldn't go out of my way to have it again but a decent option if your only other choices are macros.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A:
Pours a nice clearish straw color with medium head that dissipates fairly rapidly.
S:
Nice sweet bread/hay smell.
T:
Smooth clear taste. Not very obtrusive in any way. Nice balance of sweetness and crispness.
M:
Refreshing and crisp the carbonation is there but not too much.
O:
Overall, a good beer. Not anything to write home about but it straddles sweetness and bitterness without becoming either suffocating or a chore to drink and all while remaining refreshing. Super drinkable.
