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

(341 ml bottle: Obtained in trade with radiomgb, thanks Jeff!) Pouring the beer from this cute little stubby with scene #9 on the label of the 16-scene series, the light golden body is topped by a tall, white head that settles to a thin layer with a few minutes, thus allowing me to empty the bottle’s contents into my pint glass. Lightly sweet corn aroma unabashedly dominates the nose, a prelude of what’s to come. This is a strongly corn-flavored beer, or rather, corn husks, but not a "cheap" tasting corn flavor. It’s only mildly sweet, just bitter enough for balance, and has an almost smoky character in the finish. Light-medium bodied, perfectly carbonated, easy on the palate without being boring. Honestly, if American macro swill tasted like this, I wouldn’t have a problem buying a sixer. I really enjoyed this tasty brew.

341 ml bottle courtest of Turg, thanks! Golden colour, thick white head. Nice malty aroma, a touch of caramel inside a decocted tasting pale malt base. Some appley aroma, flowery and spicy saaz hops. Flavour is well-balanced, ncie spicy hop flavour blended with light caramel malt. Moderate bitterness. Quite a nice Bohemian-style pilsner. Why they made U and U2, when they have this in their lineup is beyond me.

mds (2192) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2005
bottle. pale golden straw body with a fluffy white head that slowly reduces to nearly nothing. aroma is grassy, vegetables, and sweet malt/corn. soft malt body with a moderate carbonation. The flavour profile is most certainly bland and mainstream. The finish is sweet and grainy and not entirely pleasing. Disappointing for this brewery.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2005
Bottle. Clear golden with med. sized bubbly head. Smooth, aged/cardboard notes, vegetables, not that thrilling.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Golden colored beer with a white head. Sweet, mild malt accompanied by some grassy hops. Lighter, refreshing body, lightly bitter finish. NIcer pilsener. Thanks radiomgb.

Hasn’t this beer changed? I used to work at a bar with this beer, it was in stuby bottles, it was cloudy, thick and skunky, unclarified slighly dark beer. I cant remember the taste exactly, but I do remember it’s character. Now I try a bottle, it’s a lager in a normal bottle. WHEN DID THIS HAPEEN? Pours straw yellow with an amber tinge, nose is grainy/herbal, taste is pale lager, plain pale lager with just the SLIGHTEST hint of herbs with a undertone of german hop, dry ceral aftertaste. It’s a lager, just a lager, and I remeber it being so much more. Cheers

Bien ordinaire, au moins elle n’est pas commercial, donc moins mauvaise pour la santé.

ALLOVATE (2332) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2005
Far away from its big top-fermented brothers this one seemed quite unique amongst the Unibroue lot. Turned out to be a decent and simple quaffer, too. Poured into a pilsner glass, a big, big fluffy white head formed atop a clear light amber body, and lasted the length leaving trails of lace down the glass. Sweet honey and toasted malt nose with a balance of peppery, grassy and piney hops. Similar toasted sweet malt in the mouth dominated the light peppery and tangy yeast and hops in the back. Light bodied and soft in carbonation, it did become a little soapy as it warmed, but remained otherwise refreshing and crisp. Finish is short with only a little gritty malt. Overall it was quite a nice drop, especially for the summer, that went down with ease. Fresh, clean and balanced. Not bad.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Pale yellow gold, white head, nice lacing. Nose of bright lemon, creamy malts and light husk, a brief touch of hops and coriander. The flavor is malty, balanced, clean, nice tangy notes. Yeasty, medium bodied, delicious.

RBSG Bottle at Fourquet Fourchette Clear light gold color that holds up a nice fine white head. Good Saaz aroma. Nice hoppy bitterness males this decent Pils.
