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.

ADesenberg (630) - Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2012
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.

Freaky_tiki (614) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
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.

bunget (567) - 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.

dandeman (542) - 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.

lefossoyeur (466) - 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...

HopTsing (441) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2012
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.

Tricker (284) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
Bière blonde de 4.8 %. Beau col au versement, odorat céréalier, mais avec tendance de bière commerciale. Elle possède un goût sucré et simple. Petit arrière-goût amer, mais correct.

Canmoore (280) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a clear straw colour, with a pillowy white head. Aroma includes notes of corn, straw, light malts, caramel, and some floral notes. Tasting notes include light cracker malts, dough, and a slick palate. Not a bad Pale Ale, better than most!
