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.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2011
Enjoyed this one with my bandmates at Joe Smoked Meat in Quebec City (right before one of our shows). Poured a light golden colour with a big white head, decent retention and lightly carbonated. Not much aroma... maybe a bit of bread. Watery mouthfeel, but is quite refreshing. Good fresh grain taste with mild sweetness, but not much bitterness. Overall, decent mild micro pilsner.

DeanF (1707) - Nunavut, CANADA - JAN 9, 2011
Pours with a nice bright yellow pilsner body but a thin and weak head on top. Aroma is soft grains and nothing else. Flavour is smooth lemon with grain notes, leaving a wet finish. Nothing special.

Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle: Poured a yellow color lager with a quite big pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light floral malt with sweet undertones is pretty tames though exclusion of any adjunct notes is welcome. Taste is also a refreshing mix between some light floral notes with a lightly sweet tone and some light dry hops. Again, no adjunct were detected which is quite satisfying. Additional hops presence would have been welcome though still a refreshing drink overall.

Golden yellow and clear with a very tall white head. Aroma is very soft and hopy. The flavour is very crisp and clean with lots of saaz hops. The finish is very fresh and citrus. This is a great pilsner.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2010
Canette 473ml. De couleur jaune et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle sucrés, léger de céréales avec des notes florales et des traces de légumes bouillis. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux petites notes crémeuses. Légère amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches, présent en arrière-goût durant toute la gorgée) accompagné de petites notes de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec des petites traces de biscuits au miel puis en finale l’amertume de houblon revient en arborant des petites notes florales. Post-goût moyen et aux petites notes asséchantes, léger-moyen amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2010 Canette 473 ml. 5.3%. Couleur jaune paille. Arôme de céréale assez présent. Douce en bouche, elle coule bien. Belle mousse blanche. Légèrement sucrée, mielleuse et sans arrière goût. Une bière d’été de qualité.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2010
473 ml can from Broue Ha Ha, served cold in a Scotch Irish taster glass.

App.: Pale straw with a loose white froth. Aroma: Oddly stank and vegetal, lightly fruity, hints of decent biscuit malts, a little organic acid and phenolics??, strange and wrong. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly lively effervescence. Flav.: Eclectic like the nose...unpleasant vegetal, bitter, stank, phenolic messiness, with touches of fruity light malts, a little grassy hops, bad; dry with decent bitterness and a slightly metallic malty-gross finish.

Canned mess. Drain pour.
