Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2009
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur dorée foncée et claire. Nez de houblon herbeux (foin), de grains de malt pâle et léger de pain et avec des petites notes de biscuits secs. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et aux notes croustillantes ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Goût de grains de malt pâles accompagné de faibles notes fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un léger goût de pain frais avec des traces de biscuits. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux (foin, notes de gazon mouillé) très légèrement asséchant jusqu’en finale. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (zest d’agrumes).

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
A golden pils with a thick white head. A nice herbal malt with light german hops and cereals. In mouth, a nice crisp hoppy pils, with nice biscuitty malt, good sustained bitterness, and good balance. A nice example of a pils, made in quebec.

philippem (105) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2009
Parfum assez subtil d’herbes et de foins chauds; En bouche, les houblons restent en retrait et sont effacés assez rapidement par le malt collant. Néanmoins, la bière est efficace, le style relativement « respecté » même si, il est vrai, qu’il y manque une certaine sécheresse pour correspondre à toutes les attentes. Je suis assez sceptique quand il s’agit de Maître Brasseur mais avec celle là (à l’instar de la Saison Gourmet), je dois avouer qu’ils ont accompli une belle réussite.

bedainedebiere (516) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2009
UPDATED: APR 12, 2010 2,25$ for 341 ml but I just paid 6,99$ for a 6-pack. I heard they wouldn’t brew that one anymore because of the production cost. I compared it with a Pilsner Urquell and a Czechvar... It’s not the same, it’s not as crisp, fruity and subtle but, on its own, it is pretty enjoyable. Quite present leafy hop, most probably the appropriate Saaz, with salty aftertaste; more bitter than P.U. or Czechvar. Respectable effort. A great Québec spring-summer beer to me! I like that one.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2009
In short: A bready, honeyed and grassy Americanized bohemian pilsner. Good thirst quencher
How: Bottle 341ml, first batch (2009), consumed relatively fresh a few months after the beer was released.
In long: Nose of front yard grass and freshly baked bread. Taste is more of the same. A neutral but adequate malt backbone with a cookie feeling and honey sweetness. Hops have are green grass and citrusy characterrs. Far from crisp the beer actually has round and oily character. The grassy finish is moderately bitter and moderately dry and is like chewing on fresh green grass. A bit too much carbonation, a bit too much honey and a bit too oily for the style. Good summer thirst quencher. I think the beers does a few things wrong but I went back and bought a few more, something I rarely do with Maître Brasseur beers. It’s just that since I went pub-crawling in Czech Republic I have become harder to be satisfied with bohemian pilsners than a nymphomaniac is with a little Chinese dude and his 2-inch tool.

probstblueribbon (3718) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2009
355 ml bottle from Trappe a Fromage, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. MR27/09.

App.: Deep golden, clear, fair white foam. Aroma: Some sweet grain and cereal, sort of a weird, waxy caramel, lacks noble hops. Palate: Medium body, moderate carbonation, somewhat smooth. Flav.: Still the odd, grain/cereal/sweetne4ss, a touch of peppery hops; dry with fair bitterness and more malt grossness.

Misses the mark but a fair distance.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle: Poured a gold color ale with a nice big white foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of dry Saaz hops is dominant and quite enjoyable. Taste is also a nicely hoppy pils full of dry Saaz – maybe even a bit too dry for my taste – and alight malt body. Malt character maybe be somewhat missing in this one but still very enjoyable.

rodenbach99 (4209) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2009
341ml brown bottle A: golden-copper colour, thin white head. S: fresh aroma of malt and some hops. Some esters. T: grainy, tannins, missed the mark for the style, M: round, medium-bodied D: easy drinking but not good enough to drink more than once

Eructoblaster (3843) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2009
Bottle - 341ml. Pours a golden body with average carbonation and a thick white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma. Surprisingly, some English and West Coast hops (Golding, Cascade) are detectable. Its hoppy taste is sharp and ends with a long finish but once again, it seems that this beer was not brewed with Czech hops. However, it is quite an enjoyable one.
