Bière cristalline, dorée et où flotte un infime col blanc laissant une frêle dentelle au verre. Des arômes légèrement maltés avec un frêle houblonnage herbal. Peu amère. Elle est mince, lisse, moyennement effervescente et se termine rapidement sur de légers arômes.

Sans réelle qualité sinon qu’elle désaltère, la Brise du Lac est une Pilsener qui peine à se démarquer des Labatt Bleue de ce monde, bien qu’elle ne soit pas mauvaise en soi. Liquide doré pâle, mousse importante mais très fugace, saveurs timides et convenues. Une blonde générique.

AlainG (1175) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Liquide jaune pâle sans mousse ni dentelle. Elle sent la paille, le malt et le miel blanc. Elle possède l’effervescence d’une eau minérale et a un goût très léger de maïs, accompagné d’une toute petite amertume. Petite bière agréable. Pas de grandes qualités mais ô combien satisfaisante, du moins, en ce moment. Le nom lui va à merveille. (460-161112)

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
Tasted on tap at the brewery’s pub in Lac Beauport, Québec on August 9th 2012. Aromas are light floral. Head is perfect with exceptional lacing. Color is dark straw and very sparkling. Flavors are sweet and malty with notes of honey to start with. Then hops are taking over with floral and grassy notes. The balance hop / malt is almost perfect. Sweet accents of malt are making a good job on the body. A high quality pilsner. The second best one I tasted after L’Amère à boire’s Cërna.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2012
On tap at restaurant. Clear yellowish straw with a quickly dissolving white head. Taste is sweet, fruity. Has a tad bit more bitterness than her ale counterpart La Matante. Felt like a regular pilsener to me.

Lager douce légèrement fruitée avec arômes herbales. Agréable. Pour une lager de ce style, j’aurais préféré moins ce fruité et une plus grande subtilité. Bonne bière de chez Archibald.

SlovakSniper (3091) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2011
(473 ml) Le liquide a une robe légèrement dorée. La tête mousseuse est blanche et peu résistante. Des céréales mielleuses, des houblons floraux et des effluves de pommes se présentent au nez. Des saveurs douces de céréales caressent les papilles. On goûte les houblons. La petite pomme roule sur la langue. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen-faible. Le pétillement est au ralenti. La texture est finement crémeuse. La finale se fait sur de faibles notes amères.

Eructoblaster (2985) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
Can - 473ml. Pale blond body with a fair white frothy head. Fresh but rather thin malty/hoppy aroma with some herbal hints. Decent hoppy taste with malty notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Not bad.

Radek Kliber (6386) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 17, 2011
Can 473 ml
Aroma: hazed orange grey with large rather strong lived top. Decent lace.<good malt profile. Aromatic hop, slightly dusty back end. Clean but tad too sweet. 6+.
Appearance: proper deep golden look, clear. Top was rather thin, white lighter fizz.2+
Body/Flavour/Palate: Frontal slight tartness, mid light in body. Light hop notes that were bit understated for Pilsener. Why this brew is so tart? Lacking crispness and freshness that is basics for this style. Failed.

500ml can from Grand Duc and on tap at brewery.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with small head.
Aroma : Nice malt and citrusy hops with grainy notes and light honey.
Taste : Nice malt with citrusy hops and grain. Finish grainy with light citrusy notes. Faint bitterness. Nice herbal notes on finish.
Overall : Fairly good. Tap was much better than that. I guess the grainy notes don’t come out that much when it’s fresh. Tap was also much more maltier. Feels like that basics are there but it would still need a little work to get truly good. Tap would be more around 3.5 and can 3.2 so I avg to 3.3.
