Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 16, 2006
NTO one of the best form this brewery, but still is veyr good. Although a little incipit it has a honey good taste. A little dakr int he orange features and good aftertaste. Specially at the bottom.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2009
Very bright light gold with a good bubble ring, looks good for what it is I guess. Malty sweet aroma with slight banana and a bitter that has no sent to it. Sweet bready flavor with a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. The is a slight chemical flavor what I can’t pin down. Nice clean highly drinkable taste but I would go out of my way to drink another that’s for sure,

ChadPolenz (1847) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Poured a 11.2oz bottle into a tumbler

Appearance: Dark amber color, almost completely transparent. Forms a small, white, sudsy head which evaporates quickly and leaves no lacing.

Smell: Darker larger aroma with slight honey aroma.

Taste: The brewery classifies this as a pilsner, but it’s much more in the tradition of a Vienna style lager. More emphasis on toasted, nutty malts with honey sweetness throughout. Lower bitterness and clean aftertaste make it quite refreshing, actually. Not a very robust palate, and perhaps a touch of tang as the beer warms. Not as grainy as a fizzy yellow beer, but not as robust as a Sam Adams or Brooklyn lager.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, with a crisp effervescence.

Drinkability: Highly quaffable and refreshing. Not much taste to work with as far as food pairings, so it works as a liquid refreshment. Definitely sessionable at 4.9% ABV.

Overall, an average beer to be sure, but one that would make an ideal gateway beer for fizzy yellow beer drinkers.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2006
Golden color with a small white head. Its a well done honey lager, sweet and watery. I know unibroue could have done better, but you have to take it for what it is, I liked it!

kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Deep golden pour with a thin white Aroma of honey and malt. Tastes sweet, slightly warery. I’m not a huge fan of this style but I enjoyed it.

2.9
Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
Golden-amber. Thick head. Caramel with lightly crackery notes. Honeyish backdrop. Overall, a fairly boring beer, where the honey note is the only thing even remotely fun.

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
Ambrée, foncée avec tons d’orangé, très grosses bulles mais pas de mousse, mince. Au nez, du houblon et de la cassonade, avec de l’herbe et des noix, accompagnés d’orange, alors qu’un bouche on retrouve une toute petite pointe d’amertume derrière un voile finement sucré. On ne s’attendait pas à moins de la part d’Unibroue, n’empêche, on est surpris qu’elle soit réussie ; bien balancée, simple, elle impressionne par sa qualité. Saveur un peu fade au final, par contre.

sseb69 (1932) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Bouteille 341 ml. 4.9%. Couleur ambrée un peu pâle, claire. Arôme un peu sucrée, céréale. En bouche, aqueuse, miel, malt. Finale sans histoire..un peu de sucre.

AleRider78 (1411) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2016
Pours an average size creamy looking head. Has an amber appearance, fairly dull clarity. Weak lacing. Aromas of sweet grainy malts, mild honey notes. A bit of corn scent also. Flavours are mostly corny and grainy malts. Mild spices and resin hops. Some dryness. Hints of caramel and honey sweetness. Watery mouthfeel, faint carbonation, light bodied. Not too bad, cheap Unibroue variants to the mass produced brews. Price is right and you get what you pay for.
