Thin, fluffy head that does leave some lacings. Aroma is herbs and hay, unknown hops. Taste/mouth is where it gets interesting. Heavy oily feel on the tongue with a robust hop bittterness and an alcohol bite, just a little. Some grapefruit (?) flavor also make an appearance. Interesting to say the least, you should drink this colder than most beers as it is just more balanced that way.

Elle est blonde et limpide, coiffée d’une belle mousse dense et persistante, qui laisse une dentelle comme on aime voir aux parois du verre. Au nez, bon, des herbes sucrées et cette fameuse odeur d’œufs pourris que je perçois parfois dans certaines bières. De façon plus diplomate, ça sent un gaz quelconque. Le goût est sucré et amer. Ça me semble limité, vite fait et pas vraiment soigné. (Lot 1-2 Embouteillée 08-12) (364-200912)

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
Mondial de la Bière de Montréal 2005. Robe blonde-dorée. Alcool tout en douceur. Beaucoup de malt, beaucoup de houblon. Très bien.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
2005 RBSG Montreal Saturday. Golden amber colour with a fizzy and frothy white head. Aroma was peachy, citrus, and caramel. Fruity, caramel, and grapefruit flavours with a citrus and alcohol finish. Medium bodied, rich.

Bendrixian (1130) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Pours clear and yellow/amber. Rather sweet aroma and slight dried hay/cereal.sweet cereal taste with a boozy kick in the mid palate and a slight hoppy note. I don’t often drink pilsner, but when I do let it be this good.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
341ml bottle. Pretty standard beer look, gold/amber, filtered, moderate white head. Aroma and taste are mostly hay and grapefruit hops. Body is pretty average, maybe a bit more oily than some. Overall, more hop bitterness in this than I was expecting for the style, but that was not unwelcome.

kevinsenn (1092) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
4-pack from Marche Omni. Pours clear amber with little-to-no head. Aroma has some fruit, brown sugar, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is honey and malt, and is packed with alcohol; surprising because 8.5% isn’t THAT strong. Bitter finish. Thick palate that is much more suited for an ale than a pilsener. A little disappointing from such an amazing brewery.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2010
Clear golden with a thin head. Aroma is sweet malt, herbs, honey floral notes and fruits (mostly citrus). Flavor is floral with sweet malt, honey, alcohol, citrus and a bitter sweet aftertaste. Oily mouthfeel.

Bottle to pint glass Aroma of sour cherry, hay, and yeast. Reddish, cloudy, and almost no head. Orange, caramel and hay.

Crockett (1009) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2005
Deep clear gold pour with a medium sized creamy foam head. Nose of clean hop and caramel. Not malt liqour-like. Chocolate, nutty biscuit malts. Tasted fresh bread. A slight grit. Some burnt notes and light medicine hop. Comes out with heavier caramel and molases burnt sugar bitterness in the end.
