A hazed blonde pils with a thin creamy white head. In aroma, light grassy malt with faint Czech hops, cloverfield, nice. In mouth, a good crisp malt with nice Czech hops, well done. On tap at Vices et Versa, Feb. 22 2013.

Was somewhat like an ESB and a pils mixed. Fresh bottle from Peluso. So-so drinkability, yes there were hops.

My Bottom Line:
This resolutely bitter New World Pilsener benefits from some cushy malts and a soft mouthfeel to whip up a comfortable ode to simple ingredients.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the misty blond.
-While Saaz shines in the aroma, it tends to be overshadowed in the second half of each sip by the Sylva. Interesting character, but decreases drinkability due to its intensity.
-Carbonation is not the usual prickly bubbling which North American brewers tend to serve. The soft fullness in its place is a nice change of pace.
-Mouthfeel is cushy like some Svetlys, but I would appreciate a little more dryness in the finish (which is very hoppy, but also doughy/sweet).
-Malt flavors could be brighter.
-It’s still a lot of fun to drink a characterful quencher like this in an area of the world nearly devoid of quality lagers.

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
A beautiful golden pour with a gentle haze, covered by a gentle white sheet that slowly fades away to nothingness. Spicy, herbal and lemony hop nose is very forward for the genre, thanks to seemingly generous dry noble hop dry hopping. Scrumptious saaz mostly dominate the flavour profile in which base malts bring a soft breadiness that is either less round than usual or simply taken aback by the hops and minerality. Grass and lemon creep up in the finish where a dry grain and salty tang dry out the little residual sugars that had been noticed at mouth entrance. Fairly efficient refreshment with original twists and a welcome addition to a portfolio where intensity seems to be the keyword sometimes at the expense of drinkability for all their worth.

Boutip (4654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color pilsner with a large white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of grainy cereal notes with light dry hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by grainy cereal notes with some dry hoppy notes with very subtle vegetable notes. Body is full for style with good carbonation. Not bad overall though subtle notes of vegetables are not the best. Also, I would have liked the hops to be crank-up by a notch but then again this would end up being off-style.

czar (4159) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
pours hazy very pale yellow with a small white cap, some retention and nice lacing. sulfur - relatively high, citrus and underlying floral notes, wheaty and clean pale malts, fruity-ish maltiness along with semi-sweet notes. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, assertive peppery-citrusy medium long almost dry finish. feels somewhat a bit boozy. too bad. still quencbing and nicely executed..

rodenbach99 (3097) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Au Saint-Bock. Le liquide de cette Pils est jaune doré avec une mousse blanche crémeuse. Le nez est fruité avec aussi des notes de houblons floraux. La bouche est fruitée, légère avec une belle texture crémeuse. Il manque une dimension (couche de saveurs) à cette bière. Une sorte de Cream Pils. Bue en bouteille de 341ml. avec les mêmes résultats.

SlovakSniper (3048) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
Deuxième bouteille de cette pils dorée et passablement troublée. Les houblons utilisés confèrent au nez des arômes invitants d’épices, d’herbes fraîches et de citron tandis que les céréales qui sont en beauté émettent les signes d’une certaine sucrosité. Je peux aisément dire que je suis attiré par ce bouquet et qu’il m’incite à poursuivre cette aventure qui s’annonce intéressante. Mes papilles réagissent rapidement aux saveurs houblonnées. Les herbes longues et folles sont mordantes. Il y a du gazon qui semble vouloir pousser sur ma langue. Des notes citronnées finissent par tapisser mon palais. La base pils est goûteuse en bons grains et en notes de pain légèrement sucré. Je peux aisément dire que tout est fait ici pour me plaire. En bouche, le liquide est de moyenne densité. Les bulles adoptent un comportement plutôt modéré. Je trouve que cet état de fait renforce le caractère crémeux de sa texture. La finale est assez vibrante en amertume. Il y a de belles salves de gazon frais et des petites fleurs qui se logent derrière ma langue pour un bon moment. Tout compte fait, un autre bon coup de Dunham.
