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.

Bière de couleur dorée avec un col mince blanc pas vraiment résistant. Nez de malt blond et de céréales. En bouche c’est une pilsener assez classique un gout assez doux de céréales. Rien de très complexe, ce bois bien. Bonne qualité prix mais rien de très extraordinaire, une bonne bière commerciale...

Can. Pours gold with a large white head. Slightly sweet aroma with grain and grassy notes. Slightly sweet malt/grain flavor with some light grassy bitterness. Not too bad for the style.

Can: pours a gold color with a big frothy head. Aromas are of sweet sugar and grasses. It tastes like a cheap, sweet lager. Fake tasting is the best way I can describe it.

Pours yellow with a pretty one finger cap. And that’s about as good as it gets. Flavour is typical easy rock smooth jazz euro watery corn flavoured beer. The finish is brutal, leaving a taste that falls somewhere between old pennies & blood in mouth. Crap. If you have one in your fridge, save it for your lazy ass brother in law on his next visit.

Colour is a rich gold with a rocky white head. Actually kind of nice looking. No lace though - foam slides like soap. Aroma is a little grainy. Taste is metallic with a strange emptiness. Not good.

dandeman (619) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
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.

bunget (610) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
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.

lefossoyeur (490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2012
Golden blonde topped by a creamy white head with good head retention. Very light herbal hops and maize nose. Light body, creamy, bland with a watery metallic finish. A generic pils. And oh! it comes from Belgium, making it a generic belgian pils...

From the bottle poured a very beautiful golden brew that produced a very thick, foamy head. The aroma was well balanced. The taste was light with well balanced malt and hops. As with all Pilseners, it was light and fresh and IMO best served very cold.
