degbert (1742) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Can. Pours a very nice gold with a high, fine-grained, pillowy, lacy head. Nose is bread, apple, a touch of metal. Mildly sweet on the tongue, with just a touch of roastiness and a bit of a fennel or anise-like herbal note. Finish is clean. Pretty tasty for just plain drinkin beer.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
500 mL can. Nice looking beer; darkish gold with a nice, rocky, white head. The aroma isfairly typical for a cheap pilsner, and not particularly appealing. The flavour is a tad on the sweet side. Meh.

dandeman (888) - 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.

Canmoore (438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a clear straw colour, with a pillowy white head. Aroma includes notes of corn, straw, light malts, caramel, and some floral notes. Tasting notes include light cracker malts, dough, and a slick palate. Not a bad Pale Ale, better than most!

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Richmond 21st. Clear yellow, slight head. Aroma was skunky, from a can???, light honey malts, faint floral hops. Flavor matches, sweeter than expected. So-so.

electrotype (654) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Un nez pas si mal... Cest poivr et a ne laisse pas transparaitre tant que a la dgringolade qui suivra. Le liquide est trop clair, on se doute que quelque chose cloche. En bouche cest vraiment quelconque et cest trs mince. Jai vu pire, mais il ny a rien de rellement intressant. Une classique bire de soif.

CanIHave4Beers (4141) - 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.

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
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...
