Richmond 21st. Clear yellow, slight head. Aroma was skunky, from a can???, light honey malts, faint floral hops. Flavor matches, sweeter than expected. So-so.

Aromas is grains and beery. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with a crisp, mildly hoppy finish. Decent enough.

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.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma of pale malt. Taste us sweet with a peppery bite at the finished followed by a not so good earthy note at the end.

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.

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.

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...

Derek881 (1017) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2013
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.

AlainG (1349) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Elle est dorée et limpide et une mousse sublime la recouvre. Un nez de céréales, herbacé, floral avec des traces de miel. Un goût de mal, d’herbes, de poivre avec des pointes minérales. Une bière ordinaire qui n’a pas vraiment de défauts, à part celui de ne pas avoir de qualités. M.A. 28-05-15 (1189-150814)

2012-07-21. Crisp yellow with a small white head. Flavour is mild, sweet grainy cereals, very light bitterness. Aroma is similarly mild, notes of sweet grains and light straw. Average to light bodied palate. Dull but relatively inoffensive. Can from the LCBO, 4.8%, Toronto
