Bière blonde de 5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un léger col mousseux au versement. On sent même un odorat amer. Elle possède un goût de citron et de pamplemousse en finale. Correcte !!

KoNrRiI (860) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2015
0.473 can. Clear, gold color and a medium, thin, white head. Aroma of cheap malts, delicate hops, yeasts, and a tad of metal. Taste is simple, grainy, hackneyed. Light body, slick texture, and above-average carbonation. Finish is short, tasteless, and utterly not resembling a blonde beer it is purported to be. Overall a bad pale lager, hard to even call it a pilsner as its hoppy character is not very... hoppy.

473 ml can from TBS, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep golden with a tight, bright white head. Aroma: Some grainy maltiness, reasonably nice hops as floral, lightly fruity, a bit peppery, fairly clean. Palate: Medium body, fairly full, fine carbonation, smooth-ish. Flav.: Taste more like a fair to decent APA than a Pils, with some nice grainy malt contribution and a fairly fruity and slightly spicy hop character; dry with moderate-ish bitterness and a pleasantly malty, lightly hoppy/fruity finish.

I don’t mind this.

Bottle. Clear blonde pour with smallish foamy white head. Neutral aroma, light metallic grainy notes, dull, hopless. Taste is sweet and grainy, very bland, watery. Palate is light bodied with good carbonation, dry. Blehbland

UXO (997) - CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
Appearance: clear straw with one finger of tight white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grainy biscuity malt, mild citrus and pepper. (4/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly peppery finish. (3/5) Bog standard pale euro lager/pils. Decently crisp and drinkable when cold, pretty enough for the style. OK, maybe slightly better than bog standard. But only slightly. (9/20)

BeerAndPonies (124) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
341 ml bottle from a four-style Rickard’s twelve-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet (and it came with a free T-shirt - go, me!), served in a pilsner flute, Pours a beautiful bright gold with moderate carbonation and a white, meringue-like head that leaves bubbly lace loops. Aroma is composed of lightly toasted malt and herbal, even woody, hops that are a bit peppery; flavor is much the same...softly expressed malts and hops, just sweet enough, and a trace of pepper. Thin-bodied, with a clean finish. Compared to other OG pilsners from guys like Urquell or Radeberger, its key elements are weak or muffled, but it’s still very pleasant drinking from a subset of a larger brewer, and that commands respect from me. Nice!

MunBro (886) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
As far as Rickard’s goes, this is one of their top 3 offerings (best of the worst? lol). Pours a light straw blonde, tastes of wheat and some light, grainy malts. Not a bad beer but I am not a huge fan of Rickards or Pilseners.

Bottle from the mixed pack. Man this is a popular mixed pack if there ever was one. Straw gold pour with a frothy cream head. Faint grainy nose has fruit and grassy hops. Slightly bitter with some grainy sweetness. Its pretty standard but not offensive or poorly made. Ill drinm it at a christmas function and be ok with it.
