Ungstrup (31467) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2005
A hazy yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet malty and rather hoppy with some fresh notes of citrus mingling in. The flavor is sweet malty and freshly hoppy. A nice Pils.

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2005
Bright straw colour. Malt-accented aroma is spicy, slightly sweaty. Clean, sweetish, with some pale malt notes. Functional example.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2012
A golden ale with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma,a grainy malt with German hops, grassy, light lemon. In mouth, a classic pils, grainy malt, mineral notes, nice and smooth. On tap at Bieres et Saveurs, Sept. 3 2012.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 Any first impressions?
-A foam screen dissipates into the very pale, clear golden.
-A vacuous aroma disappoints with its few cereals and absent hopping.
-Tame citrus fruit and basic cereal sweetness make up an unassuming flavor profile.
-Its body is decently constructed and softly carbonated.

What if you dig deeper?
-The nearly-empty finish offers but a few white bread-like, starchy cereals.
-This is definitely lacking in hoppiness (although some grassiness is found), but that is surely intentional; this is the house blond for those uncles who (perhaps unknowingly) dared to enter a brewpub.
-Honeyed sweetness develops some bubblegummy notes.
-This is no Germaine, or Cerna Hora, that’s for sure.
-This was a cleanly-brewed replacement for macro lovers, a boring pint for those looking for crafty lagers. Nothing wrong about it, nothing great about it. I’d also like to know if this is truly a lager. I have a feeling it’s more of a generic blond ale than a helles.

A couple of times, on tap at the brewpub.

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2004
Clear shining gold. Very malty aroma boasts a generous saaz identity, very floral and herbal yet somewhat lemony. Great start. Mouthfeel is firm, malty, a bit sweet even. Medium body, perfect light-moderate carbonation seems to lenghten the grassiness. Finish is salty, moderately long. Quaffable. Truly well made. Awesome introductory beer, no doubt that people will venture into more exotic styles after a few pints.

Boutip (5351) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Can: Poured a light golden color beer with a pure white foamy head with good retention and limited lacing. Aroma of clean cereal notes is pleasant enough. Taste is dominated by cereal notes that are pretty clean with light residual sugar notes also discernable. Body is about average with OK carbonation. I would have guessed this was a lager but it indicates golden ale on the label – refreshing a tasty enough for the style.

JulienHuxley (4635) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2015
Can. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is lightly fruity, some pear, light maltiness, light honeyed notes, very mild grass. Taste is malty, just a tough of honey sweetness but otherwise pretty watery. Palate is light, watery with med carbonation. Decent, just quite boring.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
Grainy cereal malts and lightly spicy herbal hops greet the nose. Clear golden blonde with low but lasting white head. Cereal malts with toasty and bready undertones and grassy, spicy hops to counterpoint and restrained finishing bitterness. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Sampled at the brewpub with Oakes, Rastacouere and Ungstrup.

On tap @ La Voie Maltée (Québec). Clear golden with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is mild with cereals, herbal notes and light sweetness. Taste is about the same. Body is light (weak) and watery. Decent carbonation. Not bad for a Pale Lager... but still a pale lager.
