500ml can. Pale yellow body, small white head. Aroma of grains, wet cardboard, cooked vegetable, herbs, a tad metallic. Tastes a little better and drier: grains, some grassy hops, mineral tones. I definitely had worse than this one.

Tasted in August 2011. Aroma is hoppy. Appearance is clear blond with long lasting head. Attack is hoppy with a slight bitterness. No other particular taste was noticed. Very ordinary and common pilsner.

Can [500ml]. Pours a bubbly gold with a large semi-lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma of grain, straw, vegetal notes, light grassy hops and some sugar. Watery flavour of grain, straw and very light grassy hops. Nothing foul or off in the flavour but there isn’t much flavour at all. Light to average bodied. Like I said, inoffensive but quite dull as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lesifflebiere (1244) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2013
Blonde bien dorée, presque ambrée, couche de mousse blanche qui disparait rapidement. Mince, en nez elle offre des relents de sucre et de maïs. Aqueuse, peu pétillante, elle est trop sucrée et devient rapidement lassante. C’est une blonde qui allie le côté mince et peu savoureux d’une pilsner, avec le sucre costaud d’une belge, et le mariage est plutôt raté.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Canned. Called premium pilsner, but it is 4.8% as per the) listing. Deep gold color with a bright white head. Doughy and grainy nose with some floral hints. This smells rich and sweet. This tastes like boiled sweet potatoes and dough. Notes of flowers present. A decent canned brew. Light and inoffensive.

Pours perfectly pale with a tight white head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma strikes a balance between that terrible breakfast cereal malt and some nice bright malt. It’s got some mild herbal hops in there as well.

The flavor isn’t bad, it retains some decent herbal character. There is some defendant tinniness to it & more breakfast cereal than I would prefer. There is however some decent bright maltiness. Certainly one of the best Belgian interpretations of pale lager I’ve had.

Palate is lively and sharp.

Poured from a tall can into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a very clear light gold color with a good-sized foamy white head that had average retention, but fairly good cling and lacing. Its aroma was a blend of straw and grassy hops, with some lighter floral and citrus tones, and a bit of grain. The taste had a light straw-grainy bitterness with bits of herb and grass, and light touches of sour grain. Its body had a crisp, lively feel with medium-high carbonation and fizz, and was fairly dry with a fairly full mouthfeel. Thanks for sharing, Dad.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Clear pale gold pour with a white head. Grain and pale malts - not interesting but not gross either. Good for what it is.
