Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2010
Canette 473ml. De couleur dorée-jaune et claire. Nez de grains de céréales, moyen de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches) et légèrement floral, léger de fruits (agrumes, surtout citron) et de pain avec des petites notes de miel. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes crémeuses. Léger goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, surtout citron) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales moyennement sucrés avec un léger goût de pain frais et de faibles traces de biscuits au miel. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une moyenne-légère amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches) légèrement asséchante et aux notes florales et ce, jusqu’en finale. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux avec de faibles notes fruitées (zest de citron).

Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle: Poured a golden color pilsner with a large frothy white head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of cereal with some vegetables notes. Taste is not very enticing with some cereal and some unrefined grain with some rotten vegetables. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not very good.

Bean (75) - Saint-Eustache, Québec, - OCT 11, 2009
Over-Carbonated at sight, lots of bubbles making it looks like Canada dry Ginger Ale....Nothing interresting for both your eyes and your nose. But this beer is better than what the ratings showcase. Typical malty-biscuity, slight hints of caramel. Very refreshing taste, everything a nice summer pilsner should be. Bravo Le Corsaire, you actually did a very well balanced "on target" beer.

monsieurska (8) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2009 does not count
bread, thin feel, dough, Une bière de micro brasserie qui s’apparente à des bières commerciales telle la merveilleuse bleu dry ou laurentide. Franchement décevante.

Canette de 500ml. 3,99$ chez Peluso. Bière blonde dorée, nez aigre, de grain frais. Bouche moyennement amère. finale manquant de définition.

bedainedebiere (506) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 3,99$ for a 473ml can at Peluso. Pretty good "take-out-to-your-home" Québec pilsner. Everything in there is in subtilities, the aroma, the cerealish light maltiness, the citrusy twist, the herbal grassy hopping. Very drinkable and enjoyable; warm day stuff but I could drink that on a regular basis. I disagree with Fred82’s rating; there are not a lot of pilsners bottled in Québec. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Belle Gueule brews a boring one, don’t tell me about Labatt Blue, and le Maitre-Brasseur and Bièropholie don’t brew theirs anymore (or it seems so)... What I am getting to is that this might be the best Québec pilsner I can bring home! Of course, until Elixir Céleste and Cerna Hora are bottled... Still, bravo, Le Corsaire! ADDED: two recent cans had a sour-thing, pretty displeasing, that either I hadn’t notice at first or those beers got infected somehow. Another bad can and the score will drop, pretty much.

Fred82 (2116) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2009
473ml can. Pours clear yellow, short head, short retention. Aroma is very faint. Some malt, some hops. Taste is the same. Finish is slightly bitter and malty. Carbonation is close to non-existent.Very drinkable indeed but there are much better Quebec micros bottled pilsner available. I suspect it was better on tap.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2009
473 ml can. Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is restrained, I can smell some malt, but not much hops. The flavor has a well-balanced blend of crisp, malt, some honeyish sweetness and hops, it feels quite clean and refreshing. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. Interesting.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2009
Canette de 473 ml. Arômes de houblon floral. Robe blonde pâle, peu de mousse et effervescence à grosses bulles. Plutôt délicate en bouche, une touche de céréales mène à une finale légèrement amère de houblon européen floral. Simple, mais agréable.
