DeanF (1641) - 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 (4509) - 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.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2010
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.

JulienHuxley (2549) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy pale straw pour with no head to speak of. Aroma is slightly off, heavy on the honey and floral hops, not the refreshing pilsner aroma I was looking for. This beer is off to a bad start. Luckily, the taste saves the day. Nice mellow sweet honey taste with a decent bittering hop presence. Palate is a bit thin but OK. Overall decent, although a bit off.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2010
473 ml can. Clear pale yellow with a huge foamy white head with very good retention. Aroma is sweet malt and herbal hops. Flavor is sweet malt, herbal and floral hops and moderate apple notes with a moderate bittersweet finish. Lacking carbonation for the style.

probstblueribbon (2760) - 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.

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.

10.05.16 . Clear yellow, no carb, small white rim. A: Floral hops, cereal. F: first sip was really grainy but the other were fine. Thin body mouth feel is good. Great pils the best from this micro I’ve tasted.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2010
Canette de 473ml. Bière blonde dorée, mousse immaculée, peu durable, il faisait chaud, nez invitant presque sucré, en bouche la bière a peu de caractère, douce, moyenne longueur, agréable et rafraichissante.

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.
