BiereLuc (968) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2013
Blonde ambrée, limpide, avec un fin col de mousse. Nez de citron et de céréales fraîches avec quelque chose de sucré qui fait penser au miel. En bouche, des notes houblonnées et sucrées se renvoient la balle dans une harmonie complémentaire splendide. Le citron nous revient en nous offrant la même fraîcheur qu’un thé glacé à la même saveur... mais avec beaucoup plus de classe. Si je devais choisir une pilsner au Québec pour boire le reste de ma vie, la «C» ferait certainement partie de mes choix.

Whatup14 (800) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Bouteille 341ml. Couleur ambrée claire et translucide, mousse blanche laissant une dentelle éparse. Arôme de céréales, miel, légèrement floral, soupçon d’alcool. Goût de miel, malt, légère amertume en fin de bouche. Carbonation moyenne, corps moyen.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
Crystal clear pale honey brew wearing a large, rather big-bubbled white head. Grainy and gently sugary, honeyed nose in which flowery/perfumey notions greet the nose as they would a brother. Delicate albeit well positioned hoppy undertones punctuate this sweetish lager whose bready malts feel borderline toasty and frankly honeyed - not unlike those of a heller bock. Its creamy, yet highly effervescent, relatively large-bubbled mouthfeel feels not crisp, but certainly refreshing and fairly acidic, combining with the hops’ zesty citrus notes that bring a welcome acidic touch and dry out effect that greatly accelerate the beer’s sipping rythm. Good stuff, everything ends up coming together even though my initial whiff did not convince me at all. Rather than being cohesive from start to finish, it shows you how wrong you were to begin with and how cohesive it was all along.

Malty pilsner not as clean or hopped as a German pilsner but then this is a Slovenian style pilsner. One can taste the grain a bit in the malt and there is a bit of sweetness but I like the strong character of the malt especially in this style of beer. I think this type of subtle classic style beer is somewhat underrated even though they are more difficult to master for a brewery than the strong tasting styles like IPA and Porter.

Boutip (4852) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear deep golden color lager with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light floral malt notes with lightly sweet notes of cereal. Taste is a mostly dominated by floral malt notes with some lightly sweet cereal notes with a final dry hoppy finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Enjoyable though maybe a tad too grainy for my own personal taste.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear pale golden with a resilient white head. Aroma is honey, spices, pils malt. Flavor is cedar, lemon, pine, pils malt, and a touch of...wet cardboard? Herbal and pine finish, some pils in there, too. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, average carbonation. You know what, I really was not expecting this at all when I opened it, and I think this is what they were going for. Kudos, highly appreciated this pils on a warm spring day.

dandeman (551) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Nose is in sweet malty accents; Candi sugar, jujube, also with notes of cereals. Aroma sticking out average with slight metallic notes. Appearance: Gold, perfectly clear, average size sparkling and rocky head with a short lasting and no lacing. Taste: Attack is mainly with cereals and grain but bitterness is showing smoothly at the end with floral notes. Flavors are mainly Candi sugar and crystallized fruits followed by grain cereals and hay. Floral hops are also showing up but remaining too discreet for my taste. In summary, this beer is too much into cereals and not enough hops. Could be more balanced. Too much into sweet accents. But still acceptable.
