sad that they feel they need to do boring lagers too. golden color quickly dissolving head lotsa corn in the nose and some citrus. flavour is very similar to bad this one doesn’t live up to the rest unibroue makes

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Harsh, nasty, cat-piss aroma. Aggresive green pooey hops. Light in taste but the body is surprisingly full, which doesn’t befit the style. Down the drain you go.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Slightly more character than Miller Genuine Draft - and in a clear bottle to boot. A deliberately mediocre beer made to compete in the lowest-common denominator market.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from a friend who visited Quebec. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Smell is somewhat floral and strong in bread yeast and sugary malt. Palate is very non-existent. Tastes just like a macro to me. I can detect vegetables which linger in the tongue before disappearing and leaving an unpleasant taste in the mouth. Unimpressed, and I am guessing (hopefully) a cheaper line from Unibroue.

Ah yes, brewed for the macro crowd, and tastes like it. Pours a light golden with a wispy head. Typical aroma. Maybe a bit less harsh than your cheaper macros.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear golden yellow. Middle-of-the-road pilsener lager, very clean palate with a mildly bitter finish. A non-threatening offering from Unibroue for those who aren’t fans of the Belgian styles.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
[bottle] Skunky pils-like flavor. Pretty rough, overpowering sweetness. Lots of forced carbonation. Certainly accessible to the masses (in Canada), but still pretty sad, for Unibroue standards.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not much to this one and the Unibroue name took a hit on this one (despite the fact that a vendor paid for this). I’ll stick to U’s Belgian beers in the future. Very grassy base (as I taste in all these pils beers), mediocre head, and very thin (but carbonated) mouthfeel. Flavor matched the very light golden color.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with and courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear sparkling pale yellow with a somewhat lasting average size white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy with a bit of fruit and a smidgen of hops. Flavour’s also sweet and grainy along with some malt and a very light bitter finish. Quite watery and light bodied. I guess for what it is it’s decent, it’s much better then many other Canadian Pilsners but that’s not saying much and it’s not something I will have again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (341ml). Shared with blankboy, my bottle. Poured very bubbly pale gold with a large, lasting bubble-foam white head. Aroma of bread dough yeast, lightly peppery sweet malt and grain, I even detected the alcohol - certainly not up to what I’d expect from Unibroue, but better than Blue, even if it does get a little vegetal on warming. Taste - pretty much your standard NorAm pils - light, sugary, vaguely grainy, faint stale floral hops drowning in the mix. Fizzy, light, watery mouthfeel - at best a lawnmower beer.
