UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 bottle. Clear golden color with thin white head. Discreet aroma. Looks like the Molson Export but the american version but the taste .... very good, for this kind of beer, its the best i ever taste, verry hopy, taste like an IPA, lightly floral hops. Over all impression is 13 but for this kind of beer, could be 18/20.
Bière de couleur doré clair, avec un mince collet blanc qui reste jusqu a la fin. En apparance (odeur et aspect) elle ressemble en tout point a la Molson Export, y a meme le bateau sur l étiquette et c est également écrit export ale mais, le gout est totalement différent. Pour ce type de bière elle est très bonne, très bonne amertume, on dirait presque une IPA, et léger gout de houblon floral. Mon impression général est de 13/20 mais, pour ce type de bière, je la coterais au moin a 18/20. C est la meilleur bière de ce type que jai gouté jusqu a maintenant.

Clear light amber body, thin off-white head. Earthy, slightly cardboardy aroma. Earthy hops and light sweet biscuity malt flavor. Has a light leafy (tobacco) kick at the end. Not very impressive or interesting. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Clear golden with quickly dissapating white head. Aroma is lightly malty and perfumy with some citrus. Taste is the same as the aroma with some lemon zest, grain and lightly floral bitter hops in the finish. Moderately sweet. Medium body with subtle carbonation. No lacing or head retention. Drinkable but boring. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2005

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 This beer is for those who believe that a quality simple taste is the best. There is a hint of lemon taste in this one. Generously hopped and malty this one does not disappoint despite being just a little salty. Wonderful nose and head. Deep golden color and a light sweet malty aftertaste. Wonderful!

This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is bitter. KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 This one pours a gold that is slightly darker than you average macro. The head is just off-white and it diminishes quickly. The nose is lightly lemon-piney and sweet. The first taste is a present but relatively mild bitterness with hints of grapefruit. It is followed by a bubblegum or honey sweetness in the middle and a mildly dry finish. This is not bad for the style, and it doesn’t taste exactly like a pilsner as beers of this style are prone to do. fly (1486) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2004
On the one hand this starts as a simple ale - which is ultimately just what it IS, but a very well crafted ale that has balance of malt and hops and an excellent finish. Could drink loads of this with pleasure.

Pours with a three-fingered white head that fades quickly and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation. Light almost clear amber color. Nose is somewhat hoppy. Starts and finishes hoppy with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Medium bodied. 83¢ for a 12oz bottle from Cumberland Farms Convenience Greenland, NH.

Gold copper, dense white head. Unusual herbal/veggie aroma. Some butterscotch, as well. Sweetish, toffee-ish taste, with an herbal, floral note. May have been a bit stale.
