Can (473 ml). Clear golden with a medium quickly diminishing bubbly white head and little lacing. Aroma is of floral notes, herbal presence, cereals and sweetness. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet (but too sweet for the style) with herbal/floral notes, honey, cereals and light bitterness. Lingering grassy finish. Light to medium body. Low carbonation. Slightly creamy (?!) mouthfeel. Too sweet and not refreshing. Not nearly as clean and crisp as a good Pilsener should be. We are in the drain pour territory here.

Buvabilité ralentie par un corps trop crémeux et une charge mielleuse trop grande. Légère amertume florale en finale, sécheresse minime.

Bought a 4-pack from a random small grocery store in Montreal. Pricy $19 for a four-pack, I feel like I was gipped from the grocer who swindled me for my Americanness. This is on the breadier side for a pilsener, but still tasty. Notes of honey, lemon and a nice peppery sizzle as the end. Muddier than most pilseners that I like, but very good.

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Can 473 ml de Bière Shop - La Chaux-de-Fonds (CH). Blonde dorée, mousse blanche fugace et pétillement tranquille. Nez malté herbacé, céréales, un peu de miel. Bouche légère, à peine grasse, douce-amère. Douceur du malt et amertume herbacée, légèrement agrumeuse.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
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.

lesifflebiere (1371) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
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 (1356) - 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 (572) - 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 (1708) - 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.
