Derek881 (1250) - Denver, Colorado, 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.

500ml can BB 10/10/16 Aroma is sweetish malt with fruity notes. Poured light golden straw with good head and nice lacing. Good bitterness with fruity hoppy notes and a slight metallic finish. OK for a cheap Pilsener.

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.

Tall can: Apple juice yellow with foamy head that disappears quickly. Wet grain/corn smell and straw, perhaps sweet apple too because of its appearance. Average creamy taste of the malts with a low/medium low hop finish which is probably more than enough for the mass market, but just okay for me. Slight after taste and hangs on palate.

electrotype (653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Un nez pas si mal... C’est poivré et ça ne laisse pas transparaitre tant que ça la dégringolade qui suivra. Le liquide est trop clair, on se doute que quelque chose cloche. En bouche c’est vraiment quelconque et c’est très mince. J’ai vu pire, mais il n’y a rien de réellement intéressant. Une classique bière de soif.

JulienHuxley (5590) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Sample from can. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is grainy, faint metallic notes, light fruitiness, old grain, a tad dusty. Taste is lightly sweet, husky. Palate is light, good carbonation. Dull.

hellonearth (118) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2015
Classique arôme d’euro-pilsener à rabais. Au nez : maïs, malt, pain, même, pomme amère. On sent et on sait facilement à quoi on va avoir affaire, mais bon, on accepte ou pas. Moi, j’aime ce type. J’en boirais des litres. Au goût, très céréalier. Comme un bol de Special K. Un peu sucré, un tout petit peu amère. Et ça résume pas mal le truc. *glou glou glou*

Bière blonde légèrement cuivre avec carbonisation moyenne . Un bouche c est une bière classique avec un de céréales mais rien de particulier . C est une correcte sans plus

McWorta (1516) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 6, 2015
Clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aromas of straw, grains and hay with faint floral notes develops. Bit lively, medium thin texture, light bodied, offering a light grainy sweetness with a hint of hop-bitterness in the background, not enough for my liking and the style. Short-medium finish.

TheJester (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
500 mL can. Nice looking beer; darkish gold with a nice, rocky, white head. The aroma isfairly typical for a cheap pilsner, and not particularly appealing. The flavour is a tad on the sweet side. Meh.
