This is the house beer at Montreal's great Joe Beef restaurant, brewed just for them by Bierbrier.
The beer pours brilliantly clear, and it looked straw-yellow, but the restaurant was pretty dark.
This was one of the hoppier pilsners I've had. The aroma was mostly of spicy, zesty noble hops, with just a touch of maltiness. The flavor follows suit, but the maltiness is a little less muted- a nice bready, grainy flavor emerges. It's very clean, finishes dry.
The carbonation was lively and the beer was crisp and dry. It was particularly effective at clearly away a particularly fatty dish we were eating.
I'm often skeptical about these kinds of "house beers" but my suspicions were ungrounded here (I doubt Fred and David would allow bad beer to be sold here). Joe Beef's Special Pils is a fine beer.
