[Bottle from Alexander shared with neighbor, Erik] A commercial pilsener with a grassy and a metallic taste. Not that good. Boring!

Boutip (5468) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2006
Can: Poured a pale yellow color pils with a big bubbly white head with average retention. Aroma of grassy malt is pleasant but a bit weak overall. Taste of semi-sweet malt with low hops level makes this beer rather boring. I’m not even sure if this is a pilsner by name only as it tends to taste and smells like a pale lager to me.

rederic (3228) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2006
500ml can, bright yellow color, with a frothy white head, fresh cut hay nose, faint flowery hops note, pale malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp pale malt, with a flowery hops accent, a faint leafiness note, leading towards a dry hoppiness finish.

I’m not a big lager fan, and this one didn’t win me over. As with most, it is very refreshing and all that. Cool looking can.

Eructoblaster (3541) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2006
Can - 500ml. Golden body with good carbonation and a decent white foamy head. Boring and one-dimension malty/hoppy aroma. Taste is refreshing and well balanced, but lacks complexity as well. Ends with a short bitter finish. Drinkable, but far from being a great Pils.

pintbypint (3152) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2006
500ml can. Pale yellow, tace of white surface bubbles. Bread like malt in the aroma. Slight malt note, herbal grassy hop flavours. Light bitter finish with some malt and grassy hop aftertaste. Medium body, fine, even carbonation.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2006
500 ml can. The pour reveals a clear pale gold color with a thick dimisnishing frothy white head. Aroma of perfumey hops with crisp malt. In the mouth the crisp malt is present and accompanied by some shy noble hops, there is also some citrus and sweetness in the finish. The body has a medium thickness while the texture is creamy and the carbonation is moderate. Interesting but the hops feel a bit too weak.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2006
33cl bottle: not much of a pilsner. Taste like mineral water with hops thrown in.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2006
Draught. Clear golden colour. Nice big head, creamy, stable, white. Rather high bitterness, uncompromising, but pleasant

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2006
Drinkable pils, has its own flavor, probably from the water source, abit hoppy, soft aftertaste, Slight grassiness, good brew.
