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...

Frothmeister (706) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
500ml can. Pours a good looking pale gold with a white head. On the nose, sweet malt, light grassy notes, and a faint fruity, honeydew melon note. Taste wise, pretty sweet for a pilsener, with caramel, a light raisin-like note, malt, that heads into mineral notes, and a sugar undertone that tastes a bit like freezer burnt popsicles. Yup, it’s cheap, but there is indeed better cheap beer out there.

Small pour from a can. Thanks to Franky Boy! Clear golden with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is of grain and is somewhat fresh. Taste is also of grain with skunky notes a light bitterness. Crisp, refreshing, drinkable and not as bad as I thought it would be. Hey, I even think I could be able to drink a whole can by myself.

Can @ RG 21. Pale yellow. Metallic aroma with a hint of cereal and citricness. Metallic flavor, too. A tad sweet/sour.

blankboy (7121) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
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

Atom (2100) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Pint can pours a pale golden/yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of simple grain and malt. Taste is sweet bready stale malts with light grassy hop bitterness.

BVery (9298) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2013
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.

lesifflebiere (1618) - 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.
