With La Bolduc, Unibroue recreated an "Old Style" beer reminiscent of the 1950s. A natural and refreshing beer.

Aroma is slightly smokey mixed with a dry american beer. Liquid is golden in color with a white hean, large at first, but leaves quickley. Initial taste is dry with a skunky note. This is the Unibroue version of Heiniken.

Crystal clear, sunshine-golden lager. Large, fizzy, white head. Spotty lacework. The nose is of a lemon/grapefruit combo, lightly malty with notes of yeast and orange blossom honey. Well-balanced flavor. Perfectly bittered with some light butterscotch and straw as well. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and light carbonation. Dry, clean finish! Not really a pils fan, but this is a very tasty, refreshing brew! Thanks go out to radiomgb for this bottle of pils. A fine session beer!

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 Re-Rate Thanks for sharing Tupalev. Golden yellow, very small white head. Aroma is a bit fruity and cidery. Palate is light, and a touch watery at times but fairly pleasant. Mild bitterness and some floral cereal notes. Pretty dull but quaffable. 6/3/5/3/10<P>Original RatingUnexceptional but nice. An interesting departure from their usual line. Decent despite not being a pilsener fan. 5/3/5/3/12

Somehow the less expensive unibroue offering. The smell is "reminiscent of the 1950s" kitchens as I imagine they were, bread, cereals, fruits. The taste is harmonized if anything accompanied by a friendly bitterness ending.

No discernible aroma. Funky-shaped bottle. A bitter pilsener that won't be everyone's cup of tea. Bit crisp.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 Its a good little and simple beer by Unibroue. The first I had was good,a little fruity taste. But I had another one after drinking another type of beer, and that one wasn't good. ... anyway, I would buy it again !

As many have said, this is a non-typical Unibroue offering. Pours a clear, bright golden colour with a strong snow-white head. The aroma gives away the Unibroue connection, with a hint of their familiar yeast mixing with crisp clove notes and an earthly malt background. The flavour is where things really turn left - it's a lot simpler than you'd expect from these guys, with non-descript fruity maltiness and a pinch of hops in the finish. Not bad, but not great.

pours deep golden colour. fresh. crisp aroma with mild hints of spice. cerealy and grainy malt flavours with a hint of fruit. good hop finish. not what you’d usually get from unibroue, but not a bad pilsener.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2004 Sob... I miss the stubbies!!! A nice simple pale ale by Unibroue. Above average. Look forward to when I don't have to hunt across the river for it...

It comes with little stubby bottle. Very unusual aroma for english pale. Banana, wheat, grape and pumpkin. Interesting and pleasant. Clear, transparent. Pumpkin flavour in dominant, second is wheat. Very unusual. Not sure if that is what they wanted to archive but I like it. Thanks Doug!
