A - Poured with one finger of white head that doesn't stick around long. The body is clear and golden with light rings of lace on the glass.

S - Sweet, grainy malt and a hint of herbal hop aroma.

T - Sweet malt up front with some graham cracker and bready notes in the middle. The beer finishes with dry, grainy notes and light, grassy hops.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - A reasonably well done euro lager, a bit light to call it a pilsner, but it has a but of hop character. Nothing to write home about, but drinkable.

Belle Guele Pilsner….in a bottle….

Appearance-blond pale color into the glass, foamy white head comes up and leaves quickly. Crackly bubbled carbonation.

Smell-typical grainy nose with a small dash of hops and alcohol, the smell lingers pleasantly

Taste/Mouthfeel-light mouthfeel, more grain and a touch of hops, malt nowhere to be found, slight floral touches but they don’t really stay around or make much of an impression. Taste is somewhat balanced and pleasant, ok smoothness down a pretty clean finish that leaves a last touch of cooked corn.

Overall-a pleasant pilsner, would’ve liked to have seen more fullness or some hops and other character added but this is mildly pleasant and inoffensive.

A clear golden brew, a white high head, medium lacing.

Smell of pears, some lemon and fresh grass.

Tasting of white bread, some lime, and a grassy bitterness.

Medium carbonation, a fresh coarseness, a medium body and a dry finish.

A clean and nice pilsener.

Pure white head with good retention and good legs. Color is very pale. Nice spicy and herbal hops on the nose. Hops dominate the flavor - nice and tangy against the light malt backbone.

This is a great pilsner. I always bring some back when I go to Quebec, but need to remember to drink it quickly as it does not keep well. When fresh (especially when the weather is hot), it is hard to find a better thirst quencher. A well made lighter beer to balance the hop bombs, imperials, and other current trends.

341ml bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance - straw yellow coloured, medium size fizzy white head, and medium carbonation. Minimal lacing.

Smell - bread/grains, a fruit like sweetness, faint hops.

Taste & Mouth - yeast, barley/wheat, above average

carbonation, sweet notes, and a dryness, almost like a white wine.

Drink - This is beer is okay, but there's many other beers I'd rather be drinking.

Comes across as a lightweight without the distinctive hoppiness and crispness of a proper pilsener.

Clear gold colour with a moderate head that leaves just a ring. No lace. Subdued across the board in its aroma and taste. Hops and malts present but not a particularly flavourful brew.

Drinkable but uninspired. Needs hops. Not real interesting as pilseners go.
