From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles. In Ikea's pint glass. Playing Bit Adventure. Superb aroma and excellent beer overall, with a very nice bitterness. A pity its high price (4.95€)

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into matching (well Porter Baltique) glass dec4 2009
a big thank you goes out to hoser for this one

A clear amber with a fair amount of bubbles that pop up from everywhere. thick beige head has good retention and leaves lace well down the glass

S lots of toffee with heavy amounts of malt and hops and perhaps a little grapefruit and tangerine

T not far from the nose and that's a good thing with out doubt. there's a little more citrus then on the nose and a touch of earth, I must admit I was loving this one from start to finish

D such a well rounded beer I can't help but give it a perfect grade here. for the size of this bottle I'm impressed by how quickly I finished it, and could see myself drinking this all day without issues (well I guess issues would depend on how early I woke up that day)

this is a bitter sweet beer drinking experience for me, sweet because the beer is sweet, bitter because I will not see it again for quite some time and that sucks. after looking over my reviews I've decided I'm moving to Quebec to drink beer.

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!

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Lots of yummy cereal and spice notes on the nose. Yep, by "Americaine" they mean hopped-up. The billowing white head is enormous and the beer is clear orangey-copper. All the hops promised in the nose is delivered in the mouth--tons of citrus rind and exotic spice. Still pretty well balanced. An excellent pale ale that almost drinks like a low ABV IPA.

haven't tried one of their brews in quite some time

very nice appearance. Deep copper orange, very cloudy, with lot's of of fine carbonation bubbles. Amazing, rich creamy head.

Pale malts, a nice fruitiness with hints of clove and allspice come to mind when smelling this brew

Solid malt backbone, appropriately hopped without going overboard. The added spiciness is an inspired touch.

Solid medium mouthfeel with an almost smooth creamy character

I really liked their interpretation of the style. Well crafted and nicely balanced.

Holy Moses this corks really in here!...

A: Pours a copper shade with a foam head that quickly recedes to semi-creamy looking blanket. A foam ring sticks around on-top while I enjoy this.

S: Biscuity malts, sweet toffee/caramel, floral notes, tart grapefruit, and picking up a faint nut aroma. Very nice with well balanced aromas.

T: Similar to smell with roasted malt notes, bitter floral hops, and that pleasant syrupy toffee taste. Follows with tart grapefruit and also some clove spice. Finishes a little on the dry side, but overall a very well balanced APA.

M: Slightly oily and creamy mouthfeel with about average carbonation.

D: Delicious. Could easily drink this all night, and certainly worth a try. Definitely worth the effort put forth in de-corking this!

750ml bottle bought at a small specialty beer store.

A : Nice golden color, the foam looks creamy, stays a long time and leaves a nice ring on the glass. There is also a lot of bubbles.

S : We can smell some hops and a little sour smell which is appealing, looks like grapefruit.

T : The bitterness is well balanced, hops, floral notes also and we can also taste some cereal grain in the back.

M : A lot of carbonation that we can see in the first place and it is kind of refreshing.

D : Really easy to drink and the ABV is not so high so it would be possible to open another one after this. Defenitely another winner beer from Les Trois Mousquetaires

Veiled dark gold color, red hue, with moderate activity. Foamy and frothy white 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with thick legs. Flavors of sweet roasted grains, lemon, orange, clove, caramel, grapefruits, herbal noble spices. Balanced sweetness with bitter grassy hops. Slick and smooth full body with zesty carbonation, almost champagne like. Strong strength finish, astringent smoky grass, very herbal and leafy, with citrus and faint pine tar. Bold grassy feel, but quite complex and with quality ingredients. Highly tongue coating thus reducing the freshness. Nice flavors, well balanced, while the finish is slightly overly intensified. Overall a very good quality craft.

The beer color is copper, somewhat dark but very clear. The head is soapy like and sticks well to the glass. The aroma presents some wood notes and some floral notes too. I get some earthy aroma too but not dominant. The taste is similar to the aroma however it appears more woody. I would say there is a lack of floral notes in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium body and this one is an easy drinker. Good craft ordinary beer.

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of floral hops, citrus, grapefruit, some pine, caramel and biscuity malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some floral hops, faint citrus and grapefruit, a piney/grassy bitterness, sweet caramel and biscuity malts.

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.
