A normal macro taste, blended with a bit of unibroue taste. a good attempt at a bad segment of the market.

Pale golden beer with sweet corn aromas and a corn syrup flavour. At times seemed like a light skunkiness to aroma but I think it was just bad beer.

Poured a golden color with a white head that quickly dimished leaving no lacing. Aroma of lemon citrus, sweet corn, malt, and a touch of skunk. Taste of sweet corn, lemons, stale cardboard, with no hop presence. I would like to thank my buddy for graciously bringing back beers that I wouldn’t have gotten a chance to sample myself, without me even asking.

On draught at La Fourquet Fourchette with the Kuhnhenns and Tiggmtl and Muzzlehatch, following an awesome tour of Unibroue brewery. Served in a 20oz pilsener glass. Goldenrod, and pencil-yellow body is clear with huge bubbles sticking all over the glass and lazily rising to the surface. Head is initially large and consists of tons of bubbles. Eventually it dies to a bubbly cover, no lacing. Aroma of stale, old hops, not terribly bitter, with no real aroma, just soil, some nuttiness. Corn-like notes as well, grits and potatoes too. Mineral water, stale white bread. Flavor is corn-like and very mild. Touches of faint corn-syrup sweetness and light cereal sourness, bits of light grainy malts. Old grass and tons of mineral water elements. Huge bubbles burst in the mouth, breaking up any real smooth consistency it might have had. Extremely watered down, with a light body and just too much carbonation. Right up there with crappy Sleeman lagers, which is what they were aiming to do, to be fair. This has to be a pale lager. No crisp lager yeast bite anywhere.

Bottled: Impressive clear Sleeman-like package. In my pilsner flute this appeared as a pale straw lager with a lot of sprtizy carbonation and a smallish cap that goes quickly to a ring...some lace. Aroma was more encouraging; a nice saaz pilsner bouquet fills the nose and the room, some citrus, some grass and sweet boiled grains. Sprtizy mouth feel, reveals a light bodied, sweet malt pilsner with little bittering but well rounded hop-malt balance. Saaz taste without bittering through infusion has produced a tastey, lemony light bready finish. A step above the mega pilsners in Canada

Big thanks goes out to TIGGMTL, you da man! Bottle, 341 mls Pours a pale yello body with a thin white head. initial pour produced a huge wall of froth, but no bubles are present in the body. Strange. Aroma is grassy, stale, skunk, hops. Taste is corn flakes, hops bitterness, stale skunkiness, some sugar. Bland. Watery mouthfeel, somewhat creamy at times. Skunked aftertaste. Bt of a skunk factor here, seems to be the case for a lot of people. Was expecting more sweetness, and freshness. Reminds me more of a stale lager than pilsner. Thanks again TIGGMTL for this opportunity to try it!

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2005
Really quite upsetting. But not surprising. I don’t know why they make this anymore. Really pale gold pour, big fizzy white head. Skunky hops. Sickeningly sweet. Corny grainy malts. Hops are dull or dead. Stale.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2005
Very pale straw coloured beer with a thick white head. Aroma of grass, hay, and skunk. Flavour is fairly thin, pale malt, grass/hay. Crisp finish. Why Unibroue makes this, I have no idea.

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Bottle... Clear, straw-colored lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Sweet, honey-like aroma with just a whisper of lemon zest. Sweet, malty flavor is a marriage of honey, toffee and grapefruit rind. Barely bittered. Light-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Short, lightly sweet, strawy finish. Unibroue should stick to ales. However, to be fair, Pilseners just aren’t my thing.

Shared in celebration with qdog, Styles and Pailhead. Chris really enjoyed this specimen provided by DougShoemaker. I think that is enough name dropping for one rating. The beer is yellow and fizzy. Slightly skunky aroma. Thin bodied. I don’t know why this is in the Unibroue batting order.
