A distinct but mild bitterness on the front end followed by a slight hop middle and a clean, refreshing finish. Poured in a glass, SAAZ Republic Pilz is a thing of beuty, sporting a dense, white head atop a golden yellow body.

473 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours yellow, clear, with white head. Smells hoppy, peppery, floral, apples. Just like the description, mild bitterness upfront on the taste, some fruity notes, grassy malt . Smooth finish. Clean and crisp. Better than I expected.

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
Single can from The Beer Store. Pours a golden colour, not filtered to-the-max, with a frothy light yellow cap, decent retention and some mild foam lacing. Grainy nose with the hops giving out some metallic notes. Nope, not a fan of that. Thankfully, the taste is way better. A nice smooth bitterness with a little burnt malt aftertaste. The dryness is mild too. Kind of creamy mouthfeel at first. Overall, still nothing too exciting. Drinkable, but glad I only had to buy one.

Can to Grolsch pils glass, beer is a bright piss yellow with a bright white head that fades to a small thin top. Aroma is papery, bready, grassy...smells exactly like fresh grain from the homebrew shop...but isn’t very complex. Taste is similar to the aroma with the bread and grass but it also tastes dusty and there are notes of fusels which is kinda greasy. Palate is thin, co2 medium. Overall...hello budweiser I didn’t expect you to be able to shapeshift. Actually this is marginally better than that but it’s boring.

Canned sample. Pale gold in colour with strong carbonation. It smells like the grain room at my LHBS, so dry malt and basement are the key elements there. A bit of honey and malt sweetness in the mouth, along with a vague fruitiness. Slick on the palate. Very bland.

Can from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Blond color, hazy. Some aroma of malt and corn. Dry mouthfeel, a bit cereally and grassy, with very light fruitiness.
Simple but not offensive.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Pale and dull. Fusel and grass nose. Flabby malts, a bit husky, touch of hop but it drifts away into big rockiness.

Un peu foncée pour un pilsner, avec une mousse blanche. D’abord, quand c’est froid, c’est ok. Aussi tôt qu’il est plus que 5 degrees l’arôme est d’une brasserie sur une journée chaude et humide. Comme du malt bouillante. Le goût est très similar. Blah.

From TBS, a basic serviceable beer. Nothing off about it, however tres blande.

mcberko (5941) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
500mL can, pours a clear golden blonde with a tiny head. Nose is very light, with notes of light spicy grassy notes. Flavour is fairly dry, with notes of spicy grassy notes and not a whole lot else. Inoffensive, to be fair, but not very pleasing. Not a good pils.

Can, pours clear yellow, aroma was light, taste was grassy, and a light bitterness, overall not bad
