2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden with a large pillowy white head. Sweet malty, almost fruity pils aroma with some mellow saaz hoppiness. Body is lightly sweet, but mostly bitter with a dry finish. Crisp and refreshing, but a standard pilsener nonetheless. I never would've guessed this was from Unibroue.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Blonde beer with a good head that quits fast like most pils. Fresh cereals nose. Very refreshing taste. Very light, lemon notes. Not complex, but beside the sad lack of taste, I can't see any defaults, okay balance, but could use some mroe hops.

I only seem to be able to find this beer in Quebec, not surprisingly. Not all that pilsish. However, it had an adequate body and was mild. This appears to be Unibroue's attempt to fight off the American Standards.

So finally in Montreal I lay my hands on the pilsner from famous Unibroue. It was not clear to my why this beer was sold in clear bottles but soon I was to find out. Last night I had Sleeman Steam also sold in clear glass bottle? To my surprise (?) they both shared same skunky aroma that so many people love in Mr. H. Mr H. and milions buyers can not be wrong. The gold U labeled in the glass matched the gold brew. I must say in the summer this must be something. Small head but did not run away like some do. Taste of U was a level above of anything else U represented in other fields. Creamy, with medium body, not to thin as many pilsners tend to be. Got body and texture and that’s always good. What is missing is the hop bite that true pils got.

Not that bad. Plae golden colour, nice fluffy white head. Aroma is a little skunky. This a decent refreashing pilsener.

A very refreshing pilsner; better than your regular commercial brands. Nice foamy white head and mellow flavour.

A commercial attempt, sure, it is not the best Unibroue beer but we can’t blame em, its just to make commercial beer drinker come to the compagnie and if thjey love this they may try some of their other beer.
Still a resfreshing beer.

decent lager, I guess. bit of a disappointment from unibroue. I don’t know what’s with the clear skunkifying bottle, and why the hell is it filtered?! this is unibroue for crying out loud!

I was told by the guy drinking this one in the bar that, ’it’s a good one.’ Obviously he hasn’t tried the other brews from Unibroue, because this one was very below their standard of excellance! Awful skunky too.

Another beer from Unibroue which helps the big ones…If it sells, we will see more awesome newcomers like La Terrible and La Fringante…If not, we will see other lackluster pilsners with a different catchy bottle to grasp the don’t-know-betters…
