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.

Can. Pours a clear golden with a small bubbly rim that doesn’t leave any lacing. Nose is of cereals. Taste is of crackery malts and lightly bitter. Body is light and carbonation medium-high. Crisp. Overall a pretty good pale lager, nothing to get excited about though.

Couleur blonde avec un mince col blanc plus ou moins resistant. Aromes de cereales, agrumes, herbes. Juste correct...

bière très douce avec de subtiles saveurs d’agrumes et de céréales. Se boit bien et est parfaite pour le bière pong

Canette de 473ml achetée (en kit de 4 bières mélangées) chez la Barik à Trois-Rivières. Dégustée le 13 décembre 2015 (Eng. pint). Bière limpide blonde dorée assez pâle. Mousse peu, col mince blanc peu durable. Peu effervescente, grosses bulles. Légère odeur de sucre, de céréales. Très douce, assez sucrée, un peu amère en finale. Saveur de céréales (malts pâles), un peu métallique. Se boit bien mais n’a rien de remarquable.

Minderbinder (3276) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2013
On tap at La Voie Maltée. Pours blond with low white head. No lacing. Aroma is of honey, herbs, grain. Taste is of honey, very slight bitterness. A little something weird. Palate: Light body. Overall: Light. Subdued. Not much to say about a beer like this...

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.

On tap at the Chicoutimi brewpub. Pale blond body with a thin white creamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with bready hints. Taste is well balanced but it is rather thin. it carries bready and grassy notes. Ends with a short herbal finish. Refreshing.
