Bouteille 341 ml. 5%. Couleur jaune pâle un peu voilée. Arôme de malt, un peu sucrée. En bouche, un peu d’alcool et de malt. Finale en houblon léger, malt. Correct

probstblueribbon (2746) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2011
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light golden with a thin white head. Aroma: Starts odd with a sweet nutty note, then some pleasant cereals, decent grassy hops, toasted rice, a sort of wet ash note, a hint of fruitiness. Palate: Medium body and carbonation with a bit of the characteristic Pils smoothness. Flav.: Grainy, cereals, cooked cereal, a bit of grassy hops, a little straw, a little cardboard, a touch of vague fruitiness; dry with a little bitterness and a pleasant biscuit malt finish that is a hint metallic.

Drinkable but misses the mark stylistically and comes off a bit bland.

lukin (412) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
bottle poured into footed pilsner glass. Golden yellow colour. Aroma and taste is dominated by straw, grains, cereals. Also some soft fruits. Too little hops for my taste. Ok beer, but nothing I would seek out.

Draught at "The Winking Judge" Hamilton Ontario. Pours a colden yellow colour, white head. Pretty basic aroma as well as taste. Didn’t mind it, but not really my cup of tea.

manuchampions (1228) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2011
Old rate. Bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy blonde with a thin white head. Aroma is honey, light cardboard. Flavour features a chalky malt with notes of honey, crisp german hops, and medium body. Reasonable for the style.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Pale golden-straw pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit straw-like. Sort of crackery with a touch of light chewiness. Bready with crackery pils malt. Very clean and fairly tasty.

Bottle - light orange with some good carbonation, light white head. Grassy hay aroma, some hops too. Fairly grass and hop flavour, some dryness there too, I had it at a friends party, handy and enjoyable for such occasions

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
A very pale colour, on cask at C’est What Fall Fetval. Some cask bubbles. Hits the style, medum mouthfeel, but not too drinkable.
Earlier Rating: 5/6/2004 Total Score: 2.5
