Caramel taste due to malt. Dryer than I could remember from my last one. Very refreshing while brings a rich taste. Too bad the bottle is clear.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Why the clear bottle? Anyway, lightly copper in color, big fluffy head. Sticky, cotton candy lace grabbing the glass on the way down. Faintly herbal nose, mostly caramel malt. Drinkable enough, a bit sweet and malty and a touch grassy. Something reminds me of leather and wood, but not in a pronounced way. OK lager.

Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 Nice limpid copper body. Light but relatively long-lasting head. Aroma is OK but could be better if not bottled in clear bottles. Interesting wooden and smoked flavor with a bitter final. This Vienna (not Pilsner...) is not bad at all... Better buy it on tap or in a 6-pack in order to avoid deterioration due to the Sleeman-look-like clear bottle.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Discovered in Montreal. Didn't know Unibrouers made a pilsener. Solid true to style brew: golden, dry, hoppy.

Boutip (5951) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
Bottle – Poured a light amber colored beer with a nice standard head with standard retention. Aroma is sweet with some nice malt easily detectable. Taste is very sweet, light and quite refreshing. This is not your usual Belgian Ale from Unibroue but more of a summer beer to drink on the patio.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2007 2006-12-01, bottle, 6-2-5-3-10=26
Amber color. Aroma of Amaretto (thus almonds) and sugars. Dry caramel taste; ordinary bitterness. Boring, as many weak Unibroue.

2004-02-15, bottle, 5-3-5-3-10=26
Light amber color. Light aroma; malt and hop flowers. Some maltiness and hop, but dry and a bit metallic. Strong final bitterness.

muzzlehatch (4837) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2004
341 ml bottle. Bit darker than U, head not so voluminous, nearly identical attractive bottle. Nose sharper, stronger, a bit skunky unfortunately. Flavor a little maltier than U, like a Vienna perhaps, tasty front but rather boring at the finish. Decent body. Certainly quite drinkable, but I wonder why it exists?

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2003
Light amber colour, good size head leaves behind a smallish head. Aroma is slightly malty and grainy. Bit of malt and slight bitterness but mostly bland.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2003
Very skunky aroma straight out of the bottle - dissipates to a mild malt grain aroma. Skunkiness kills the rating for aroma. Initially medium sized head that recedes to a half finger width with marginal patchy lacing. Deep copper coloured body. Some cereal and malt in the flavour but no balancing bitterness. Shy carbonationon and a medium thin body leaves something to be desired. Marketing department must have won the battle at Unibroue on this line of beers. Must be going after the Sleeman's crowd with this one? Still, if this pays the bills and allows them leeway to develop another Trois Pistoles, I'm on board... Not that I'll drink the stuff regularly. Bottle (clear).

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Clear amber body with medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grassy, light fruity. Taste is grassy, mild sweet, some malty. Nice lager, pleasant but nothing great.
