Derek881 (1260) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Poured from a tall can into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a very clear light gold color with a good-sized foamy white head that had average retention, but fairly good cling and lacing. Its aroma was a blend of straw and grassy hops, with some lighter floral and citrus tones, and a bit of grain. The taste had a light straw-grainy bitterness with bits of herb and grass, and light touches of sour grain. Its body had a crisp, lively feel with medium-high carbonation and fizz, and was fairly dry with a fairly full mouthfeel. Thanks for sharing, Dad.

Pour is a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma is pale lager malt and some wet paper bag. Flavor is grainy and dry with a little malt presence after the swallow. Clean and cheap but not much like a pils, more like a Dutch lager. This same brewer makes all those cheap Aldis beers.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
Bright straw color with a good amount of activity. Slightly frothy white 3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with generous legs. Flavors of leaves, sweet grains, caramel, lemon, skunk, noble hops, floral spices. Pleasant sweetness, and lots of sharpness. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Light bitter finish, quite hoppy and malty, lingering smoky grass and skunky feel, with a sugary touch. Pretty good pilsener, lots of character and quality ingredients. Decent freshness and well balanced flavors. Pleasant to drink, but a little thin and flat in the mouth. Overall good quality craft.

500ml can BB 10/10/16 Aroma is sweetish malt with fruity notes. Poured light golden straw with good head and nice lacing. Good bitterness with fruity hoppy notes and a slight metallic finish. OK for a cheap Pilsener.

Frothmeister (753) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
500ml can. Pours a good looking pale gold with a white head. On the nose, sweet malt, light grassy notes, and a faint fruity, honeydew melon note. Taste wise, pretty sweet for a pilsener, with caramel, a light raisin-like note, malt, that heads into mineral notes, and a sugar undertone that tastes a bit like freezer burnt popsicles. Yup, its cheap, but there is indeed better cheap beer out there.

BytownJon (58) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2016
Tall can: Apple juice yellow with foamy head that disappears quickly. Wet grain/corn smell and straw, perhaps sweet apple too because of its appearance. Average creamy taste of the malts with a low/medium low hop finish which is probably more than enough for the mass market, but just okay for me. Slight after taste and hangs on palate.

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.

JulienHuxley (5691) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Sample from can. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is grainy, faint metallic notes, light fruitiness, old grain, a tad dusty. Taste is lightly sweet, husky. Palate is light, good carbonation. Dull.

Classique arme deuro-pilsener rabais. Au nez : mas, malt, pain, mme, pomme amre. On sent et on sait facilement quoi on va avoir affaire, mais bon, on accepte ou pas. Moi, jaime ce type. Jen boirais des litres. Au got, trs cralier. Comme un bol de Special K. Un peu sucr, un tout petit peu amre. Et a rsume pas mal le truc. *glou glou glou*
