This beer has grown on me to where I look forward to popping one to complement and give appetite to an ordinary meal. Pleasant pale gold colour and mild form. A light sweetness like honeydew that lingers.

Lively,golden,beer. Frothy,white,head. Good pils aroma,floral,malty,slightly yeasty. Fizzy,well carbonated,good body. Flavor is malty,but not enough,with slight yeast flavors. Long hoppy,malty finish. As it loses carbonation,the malt is much more evident,and tasty. Lots of floral hops,with lingering malt. Pretty tasty pilsener,IMO.

Nice effervescent and limpid golden beer. Relatively dense head (for that style). Fresh floral aroma. Malty and hoppy flavor followed by a long bitter final. Very good "everyday beer" which tends to be the obvious choice after helping a friend to move.

muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2004
341 ml bottle. Pours light golden, massive billowy head. Great aroma, sweet but with piney hop notes, quite strong. Very soft-bodied, not a lot of action in the bitterness dept for a pils. Aroma's the best thing going here, and that alone doesn't save it from mediocrity.

beerhugger (572) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2004
Natural and refreshing is an apt description for this pale golden piney brew. Smells like a hoppy forest on the edge of a pine forest and has that nice carbonated bubbling brook type of feel to it. Straightforward maltiness and slight citrus tinge too. Pleasant but not outstanding - but better as an easy-drinking beer than many other lagers. Might be suffering slightly in this rating from following the Unibroue's Edition 2004 which is a great beer.

fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2004
Blond color; big head. Light bread and vanilla aroma. Poor taste, very common lager, not even as much bitter as other ones, and a bit metallic.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2004
Nice golden color and acceptable head retension for this style of beer. There is pronounced aftertaste with a bitter finish and I like the old 'stubby' style bottle. A decent beer but not as good as most unibroue beers.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Pours a pretty clear, golden yellow with a quickly dissolving white head and minimal lace. Aroma is fresh pears, pine trees and light notes of molasses. A bit of unripe honeydew hides. Nicely crisp, with a medium to thin mouthfeel and a warm, flowing finish. Just a bit of tartness right on the end, but this is a beer with a nice balance of malt and hops. Nice.

Daytona00 (165) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2004
Bottle. Golden color. Pleasant fruity aroma with a generous head. Sweet taste. A different but good Unibroue product.

tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2003
Toasted malt aroma. Clear golden yellow with a decent white head that diminishes to a coating. Some grainy flavour with a bitter finish. Crisp mouthfeel. A thirst quencher with a bit of extra flavour. Especially good on a sultry summer evening. Bottle.
