Review: Unibroue U Rousse
Appearance: Pours a rich caramel red beer with a bit of a honey hue. Nice amount of off-white head clinging to the er.. hotel plastic glass.
Aroma: Bit of caramel maltiness, hint of honey, light nuttiness and a grainy profile. Reminiscent of most more macro red amber lagers/ales.
Taste: It's very smooth, a bit of a tinny aftertaste, a bit of a caramel sweetness, a hint of nuttiness, fairly light and a bit of a grassy profile.
Overall Thoughts: Compared to the cousin beer Sleeman Honey Brown, I think I actually prefer this one. It's not great but this is a very smooth lager that takes 0 effort to gulf down. At the price ($12.99 before tax + deposit) - is substantially better than the competition in the discount beer section at Quebec dépanneurs.
