Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! Rescousse Altbier at 5.3% ABV _(C$3.29 at Marché Cosmopolitain, 341 ml, bottle date 7-Apr-2016, acquired 27-Aug-2016, reviewed 28-Aug-2016)_

Appearance: clear medium amber with short, short-lived off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grainy caramel, mild fruit, faint berry, light earth. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-light bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, sweetish mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

A decent altbier, although the style’s not my favourite. Pleasantly well-balanced malt with a mild hoppiness that could nonetheless stand to be more pronounced. A bit too tame for me, but pleasant enough. (13/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze
