Griffon Rousse

Griffon Rousse (4.5%): an amber ale from Canada. From the makers of St-Ambroise Pale Ale (Montreal's McAuslan Brewing).

  • Pours a nice chestnut brown liquid.
  • The aroma is slightly caramel-like.
  • Flavor is metallic/seltzer-like but rather thin.
  • Aftertaste is earthy, almost woody.
  • Good buzz despite low ABV.
  • I like the cool creature on the label.

Verdict: a decent brew, unfortunately it's a bit too thin.

Molson Canadian 67 Sublime

Molson Canadian 67 Sublime(3%): a light lager from Canada. Molson ,like most large breweries, is jealous of Corona's success so it feels the need to offer light lagers flavored with lime/lemon. 67 stands for 67 calories.

  • Pours a very light golden liquid.
  • Citrus smell, not shocking.
  • Taste is faint with notes of artificial lemon juice.
  • Aftertaste is also very chemical-like ... it's hard to describe.
  • Surprisingly gives a slight buzz and no headache.
  • The bottle is alright I suppose.

Verdict: that brew won't kill you but you'll wish you invested in a pack of Bud Light Lime or Corona instead.
