Bottle - This one pourred a very light brew with a small white head. This brew has a light body with even lighter malt taste. Below average pils from a brewery who seems to be missing in the fresh idea department. I won't be seeking this one again anytime soon.

Bottle-Grassy, grainy nose with some apple and yeast. Pours a clear sparkling gold, and caps with a thin white fizz. Slightly sweet flavours of grain and malts with a touch of floral like hops and some mineral flavours too. Light-Medium body with good carbonation.

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.

341ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Wanted to grab some beer on the way home after work. The dépanneur I visited only stocked Belle Gueule and Tremblay. Picked up a six pack and figured I'd give it a try.

A - Poured a clear golden colour with a white head that quickly drops to a thin cap. Pretty much what one would expect from a Pilsner. Not much lacing though.

S - Aroma is grassy with a light grainy sweetness. There's also a slight herbal quality to it.

T - Light malt profile and a very light hop presence. It doesn't taste bad but it doesn't taste like a Pilsner either. It's flavour is more like that of a light Lager.

M - Good carbonation, a bit creamy upfront and dry in the finish.

D - Goes down pretty easy due to it's inoffensive and light flavour.

Overall this is just an average attempt at a Pilsner/Lager.

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.

See through straw color with a small white head. Metallic smell, with some bread and malt notes. In the mouth you get cereals and bread notes with some floral hops. Nothing impressive here.
