3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle in Metis-sur-Mer, Quebec. Straw with a rapidly fading white head; reasonably bitter and full flavoured with a slightly sour finish. A pleasant summer beer to dirnk while sitting on the terrace watching the sunset.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bouteille de 341 ml. La bière est de couleur paille-dorée. Une mousse blanche modeste qui reste sert de chapeau à ce liquide malté. Au nez on découvre des arômes de grains, de houblons florals avec des notes métalliques. En bouche le corps est mince et la bière possède des flaveurs de malt et de fleurs. La finale est subtilement houblonnée et caramélisée.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle-Grassy, grainy nose with some apple and yeast. Pours a clear sparkling gold, and caps with a thin white fizz. Slightly sweet flavours of grain and malts with a touch of floral like hops and some mineral flavours too. Light-Medium body with good carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille. Arôme de malt pâle et de houblons. Couleur jaune dorée avec belle mousse qui colle au verre, le col mince reste très longtemps. Goût très floral, bien houblonné, faiblement malté. Arrière-goût de houblons, de malt et tout légèrement d’alcool. Bonne rondeur, l’effervescence est moyenne.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. It was listed as "blonde," which I’ll assume is this. Dry, hay, mildew aroma. Semi-sweet taste, dank, slight caramel. Not too bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden yellow, moderate head with poor retention. Perfumey-floral aroma on top of typical grainy aroma. Moderately sweet pale malt with little true hop character other than a peach-pit bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but no competition for the Czech pilseners that it seeks to emulate.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (341ml). Pale gole with an average frothy white head. Standard Canadian pils - sweet, dry hops, grainy malt - boring, quick finishing, entirely forgettable. Light body, decent carbonation, no ugly aftertaste. Get out the LawnBoy ...

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
2006 bottle partially consumed on 8/27/06.
Light copper, mostly blond-colored beer with a high clarity. Head is white and about two-fingers high, receding to cover, fairly steadily. Not much lacing, but the carbonation does not seem overly aggressive in the liquid.
Aroma shows a sweet, almost sourish pale malt. A touch adjuncty or mineral-like, though I wouldn’t think there to be adjuncts in here. Hops are noticeable, but very dusty, a bit skunky and a bit muddled overall, not fitting in well with the already sour-sweet, odd (for lack of a better term) malt aroma. No vanillin or creamed corn, no vegetal character, thankfully, so in that regard, it seems well-brewed, I just think the recipe needs some work.
Flavor confirms, as the grainy, slightly sour six-row-like flavor provides a moderately harsh note. Some sweetness arrives late, but it’s abrupt and almost syrupy. Hop bitterness is mild, while hop flavor is again dusty, old, very much like yellow/dying grass. In the end, too much of the souring effect, adding acid to the palate and not providing for a refreshing experience (the syrupy light-caramel notes do not help either). A cleaner, more crisp yeast and higher attenuation and probably some softer water would go over better here. Alcohol is not noted. Carbonation is moderate, wateriness is minimal.
