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

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2006
[bottle] Clear yellowish/gold color with a tall, lumpy head. Some sweet apple in the aroma. More on the light, malty end of things. Finishes with a nice subtle hop finish. This is a great pils, but I do wish it had more of the usual Unibroue characterics.

(Bottle 34,1 cl) Clear pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Malty nose. Medium body, malty with a sweetish, caramelish edge. No bitterness. Drinkable but not very exciting. 170406

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle shared with and courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear sparkling gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of grain, corn, sweet malt -- slightly vegetal and sugary. Very carbonated mouthfeel. Flavour’s of an above average, simple Canadian Pilsener -- nothing bad about it but nothing special either -- with a mild hop finish. Light to medium bodied. For a Lager it’s O.K. but for Unibroue it’s mediocre.

This beer first look like labatt blue or molson Ex, but is better than that shit. This is not the worst beer from Unibroue, but the second (U is shame for Unibroue). La Bolduc is acceptable and not expensive. Not good, but not bad.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2006
Bottle (341ml). Shared with blankboy, my bottle, via turg. Poured clear slightly bubbly yellow, small white head. Somewhat metallic aroma of grain, sweet malt and a hint of stale hops. Flavour is pretty normal Canadian pale lager, grainy, some corn - not bad. Watery, fizzy, slightly sweet yet bitter short finish. Ehh.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Turg- Thanks!- Pale straw is the colour with a light sprinkling of white foam. Minute lacing. Honey grasses and some lemon in the nose, with a mild hop presence. Sweet floral hops, with honey , and a good balancing bitterness. Finish has slight bite. I’d buy it, were it available here in Ont. Thanks Francois!

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2006
[ Bottled ; chilled ; fresh, classic qc beer ]
A mostly diminushing average frothy white head that tops up a hazy medium yellow body. Moderate lacing. No particules. Many medium bubbles Aroma presents malt being moderate cereal while hops are barely noticeable. Also, there are faint notes of cooked corn?! Flavor is moderate grains/cereal/malt and that corn again! Geez.. i hope i’m wrong. Finish is short. Light to medium body... watery texture... Soft carbonation...
It’s a very basic lager without much to offer.

It is interesting that my first Canadian beer rating is occurring while I’m living in Perth Australia, but it is because I just discovered the Rate Beer site while living here. This was a bottle my father-in-law bought for me, I think for nostalgia. He mad a good choice! Hazy honey gold, quickly dissipating head. Terrific aromas of huge malt, apples, honey and some soft floral notes in there somewhere. A little on the sweet side, but well balanced with a noticable hop presence. Very good.
