Honestly the beer is cheap. In Montreal we have 15 bottles for 16,99$. So I wanted to give it a try.

The smell of it is a bit disappointing from the Brasseur RJ. Like the blanche de Chambly have a very interesting smell

The taste is almost exactly the same as the Pabst Blue Ribbon. Like I won t notice really a difference and the price of the Blue Ribbon is cheaper as the Tremblay, so sorry Brasseur RJ but it will be the last bottle of beer that I would buy because if it taste the same as the Blue Ribbon I would buy the Blue Ribbon.

So would I recommend it ? A big NO ! As a average consumer this beer could taste better. The price is good but they could have a better finish on the beer.

A - Straw yellow, very reminiscent of urine, very little head that quickly dissipates.

S - a little yeast, and sweet grain. Corn or rice. No hops.

T - like the style. Some rice, grain, clouded by a medium carbonation, leaving a slightly moldy aftertaste.

M - Not bad. Medium-light body. Easy to drink

O - I'm glad it was free.

A: very pale yellow color with generous pure white head.

S: Can't smell anything much except maybe some corn and malty sweetness. Some herbs too.

T: Taste was ok. Nothing spectacular. Made me think of a beefed up budweiser. Corn is there and is actually nice, bringing some sweetness. Malt is also present as expected. Very low hop levels though...

M: Surprisingly very good. Carbonation is mid to high and has a very creamy feel to it, not watery at all.

D: as with any macros, drink is high since taste is weak and doesn't have much aftertaste.

This is an average Canadian Lager ala Molson. I had it on tap in Montreal, at a small local pub. The appearance was a golden color with a slight reddish hue. The smell was unexceptional, I was not able to pick out any stong notes. The taste was typical lager, no suprises, nothing original. At the same time, not bad, certainly an easy beer to drink a few of. The mouthfeel was smooth, and light, like the rest of the beer, typical. Overall, this beer, as I have mentioned before, is typical, nothing special, but at the same time, not bad.

My father often stocks this beer, so I have had many. I often choose it because it is much less watery, more of a real beer flavour, than the macro beers with which it often shares a fridge.

A- Very clear golden colour. Decent initial head but goes down quickly.

S- Not strong. Slighly floral with grassy odour and ethanol.

T- Strong hops flavour. Tad floral. I find the after taste a bit much on this beer.

MF- Light, a bit thin. Carbonation a bit high.

D- Aftertaste and carbonation make this a beer I rarely feel like having many of in a row. Sometimes I feel the need to cut through the aftertaste with a bit of salty food.

A clean pale yellow beer. Has a small fizzy white head the fizzes away quickly. The aroma has a light grain character with a light grassy note and a hint on lemon in the background. There is a light prickly carbonation on the middle of the tongue with a hint of a light biscuit grain at the start. But the taste turns sweet on the finish. Not to my taste

I had this one in Montreal, and like the other reviewers seem to have noted: average is pretty much the word here. It's a very drinkable brew, but there's nothing truly exceptional about this one. It pours a nice clear golden color with about 3/4 an inch of white head that lasts a little while before falling. There's a little hops detectable on the nose, but no other flavours really leap out at you from the getgo.

When you actually get to drinking it, it's still a rather plain beer with some slight bitterness and some malts with almost no aftertaste. The moderate carbonation was pleasant, and it's not bad in terms of drinkability... there's just much better out there, especially in Montreal. Overall... one I'd drink again, especially if there's nothing better to be had, but not one I'd seek out.

Yellow beer, a typical golden lager with a good carbonation, which was fun to look at all the bubbles dancing in my pint. Smell like a typical lager but a strong smell of wheat was very present, a bit cereal too. The taste was not that great, not present, a tiny malt, nothing great.

Bottle: Poured a clear yellow color lager with a nice bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of crisp hops is clearly identifiable and enjoyable. Taste is light and refreshing with a solid malt backbone for the style and fresh crisp hops at the end. Above average for the style and glad I got the chance to try this one fresh.
