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

Eructoblaster (2981) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2004
Nice effervescent and limpid golden beer. Relatively dense head (for that style). Fresh floral aroma. Malty and hoppy flavor followed by a long bitter final. Very good "everyday beer" which tends to be the obvious choice after helping a friend to move.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 28, 2004
341 ml bottle. Pours light golden, massive billowy head. Great aroma, sweet but with piney hop notes, quite strong. Very soft-bodied, not a lot of action in the bitterness dept for a pils. Aroma's the best thing going here, and that alone doesn't save it from mediocrity.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2004
Natural and refreshing is an apt description for this pale golden piney brew. Smells like a hoppy forest on the edge of a pine forest and has that nice carbonated bubbling brook type of feel to it. Straightforward maltiness and slight citrus tinge too. Pleasant but not outstanding - but better as an easy-drinking beer than many other lagers. Might be suffering slightly in this rating from following the Unibroue's Edition 2004 which is a great beer.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2004
Blond color; big head. Light bread and vanilla aroma. Poor taste, very common lager, not even as much bitter as other ones, and a bit metallic.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2004
Nice golden color and acceptable head retension for this style of beer. There is pronounced aftertaste with a bitter finish and I like the old 'stubby' style bottle. A decent beer but not as good as most unibroue beers.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Pours a pretty clear, golden yellow with a quickly dissolving white head and minimal lace. Aroma is fresh pears, pine trees and light notes of molasses. A bit of unripe honeydew hides. Nicely crisp, with a medium to thin mouthfeel and a warm, flowing finish. Just a bit of tartness right on the end, but this is a beer with a nice balance of malt and hops. Nice.

Daytona00 (132) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2004
Bottle. Golden color. Pleasant fruity aroma with a generous head. Sweet taste. A different but good Unibroue product.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2003
Toasted malt aroma. Clear golden yellow with a decent white head that diminishes to a coating. Some grainy flavour with a bitter finish. Crisp mouthfeel. A thirst quencher with a bit of extra flavour. Especially good on a sultry summer evening. Bottle.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2003
Golden colour with a nice head. Fruity aroma and a taste of malt and nut. Not exceptional, but quite okay.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2003
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.
