Tall can: Pours clear gold with a tall white head. Grassy, grainy malt aroma. Taste is cardboard, grainy bitter. Basically...just unpleasant.

Bire de couleur dore avec un col mince blanc pas vraiment rsistant. Nez de malt blond et de crales. En bouche cest une pilsener assez classique un gout assez doux de crales. Rien de trs complexe, ce bois bien. Bonne qualit prix mais rien de trs extraordinaire, une bonne bire commerciale...

Can from Total wine Sterling. Smells like what I would imagine the Outkast planet of Stankonia to smell like. Itsgrassy funk. doesnt taste like much on the tongue. has a weird kind of aftertaste. Ugh!

bunget (896) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2013
500ml can. Pale yellow body, small white head. Aroma of grains, wet cardboard, cooked vegetable, herbs, a tad metallic. Tastes a little better and drier: grains, some grassy hops, mineral tones. I definitely had worse than this one.

dandeman (899) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
Tasted in August 2011. Aroma is hoppy. Appearance is clear blond with long lasting head. Attack is hoppy with a slight bitterness. No other particular taste was noticed. Very ordinary and common pilsner.

blankboy (7472) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Can [500ml]. Pours a bubbly gold with a large semi-lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma of grain, straw, vegetal notes, light grassy hops and some sugar. Watery flavour of grain, straw and very light grassy hops. Nothing foul or off in the flavour but there isnt much flavour at all. Light to average bodied. Like I said, inoffensive but quite dull as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lesifflebiere (1763) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2013
Blonde bien dore, presque ambre, couche de mousse blanche qui disparait rapidement. Mince, en nez elle offre des relents de sucre et de mas. Aqueuse, peu ptillante, elle est trop sucre et devient rapidement lassante. Cest une blonde qui allie le ct mince et peu savoureux dune pilsner, avec le sucre costaud dune belge, et le mariage est plutt rat.

heemer77 (5325) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Canned. Called premium pilsner, but it is 4.8% as per the) listing. Deep gold color with a bright white head. Doughy and grainy nose with some floral hints. This smells rich and sweet. This tastes like boiled sweet potatoes and dough. Notes of flowers present. A decent canned brew. Light and inoffensive.

CanIHave4Beers (4156) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours perfectly pale with a tight white head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma strikes a balance between that terrible breakfast cereal malt and some nice bright malt. Its got some mild herbal hops in there as well.

The flavor isnt bad, it retains some decent herbal character. There is some defendant tinniness to it & more breakfast cereal than I would prefer. There is however some decent bright maltiness. Certainly one of the best Belgian interpretations of pale lager Ive had.

Palate is lively and sharp.
