Decent for style. Nice saaz infusion here, with enough to give this pilsener a kick. Pours golden clear without much head or lacing. Crisp, slightly saazy bitter finish. Average carbonation. Initial smell is a little off, though. Something a little like meted cheese here. Tap at Arrow and Loon.

473 ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a clear lightish golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is rather mild with light grass and grains. Flavour is a little more assertive with biscuit and mellow floral and grassy character. Gentle bitterness in finish. Ok.

A golden pils with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet grassy malt with grassy character, light chalky notes, so-so.. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with light grassy Saaz hops, watery bodied, decent. On tap at Arrow and Loon.

Can from the mix pack. Pours yellow. Aroma is alright on the hop front (though muted) with lemon and flowers, malt comes through in the flavour and that’s not as good, kind of sticky and not light like the great European pilseners. Still, best of the mix pack.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured a light yellow color lager with a medium size white foamy head with OK retention. Aroma consists of lightly sweet malt base with light dry floral notes. Taste is also dominated lightly sweet malt notes with some dry floral hoppy notes. Body is light with good carbonation. This is not a bad beer overall but would have benefited from additional hops presence.

Canned beer. Aroma is a bit vegetal, some fruitiness, not really noble hops but not that bad. Taste is mild, inoffensive faint hop. Not really a bad beer but still pretty dull, I applaud the effort I guess.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden with visible carbonation. Aroma is mostly grain, a little grassy. Flavour has grassy hops notes as well, with some malt. Yeast finish. It’s definitely nothing special, but I don’t see a reason for all of the terrible ratings - this beer is not bad at all. A pretty good, clean body and backbone of flavour and bitterness for what it is.

The word "commercial" leapt to mind, a watery yet good clarity and head properties displayed.
