Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2008
A golden pils with a thin white head. A pleasant fresh grainy malt aroma with light German hops. In mouth, a pleasant pils with lightly biscuitty malt, hops, and mineral notes. A refreshing offering. On tap at brewery August 3 2008.

2011-08-08. Crisp bright yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Floral almost cidery aroma, light grass touches. 5+ Average to light bodied palate. Modest bitterness throughout, grassy hops and buttercup florals in the finish. Okay. Not entirely to my own tastes. On tap at the brewpub, Levis

MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Honeyed pilsner malts envelop the Saaz hoppiness which contributes its herbaceous goodness throughout each sip of this sweetish Pils.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the clear dark golden.
-Style freaks will say the final gravity on this was a tad too high; the body is too round and a bit too sweet.
-Carbonation is quite soft for the style.
-This remains a cleanly-brewed quencher throughout and should provide a nice re-introduction to the style to those who think a Pils is a Labatt Blue.
-The can has pretty much the same sweetish flavor profile.

On tap at the brewpub and from the can.

Can 473 ml
Aroma: of raw wort , grains an old world hops. Slight tartness on side. 5-
Appearance: amber gold with initial plus sized top that quickly reduced to smalish fizz. No lace. 2-
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium bodied. Solid hop level with semi dry follow up. Thinner on body but it will serve just fine. Good character on top end with leafy bittering hops. Slight fruity malty hints. Fairly drinkable.

Boutip (6628) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle: Poured a golden color pilsner with a large frothy white head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of cereal with some vegetables notes. Taste is not very enticing with some cereal and some unrefined grain with some rotten vegetables. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not very good.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2009
Shining clear golden pour topped by a fair head. I certainly don’t regret not having let my heart wander into the selection of a sampler tray at Le Corsaire. It would have been easy enough with 10 beers on, but I would have missed on a full glass of this genuine pilsner. While not particularly aromatic, it is clean, crisp and highly focused. Very light-bodied and drinkable, it uses a sharp carbonation to increase its vitality feel and is clearly german in nature with its purity, dry body and gently sulphury notes which are fitting. Limited malt character, but pleasant grassy hop finish. Delicate and very refreshing.

JulienHuxley (5985) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
On tap. Pale yellow pour with a thin persistent white foam. Aroma of cheap fermentation (homemade wine-like), wet grains, straw and musty hops. Quite a weird aroma. Taste is more conventional, light grainy taste with a dry bitter finish, a bit yeasty. Palate was well carbonated. Not bad.
