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...

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.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2012
Can. Thought this would go under one of the other two ratings. This is 4.8% ABV and shows Martens Pilsener in the logo and Premium Pilsener beneath it. Gold bodied with a tall foamy white head. Sweet and slightly don’t aroma with cereal grains and grassy notes. Taste is sweet malt corn syrup, cereal grains and light grassy hops. Body is light-medium and moderately carbonated. Finishes with more cereal grains, grassy hops and sweet mal notes.

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

lefossoyeur (444) - 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...
