Not sure if this is a different beer or just a different name. Just stopped in 11th for schooner Monday. First czeched the seasonals list for hops and then went back to main age for choice between this "new" favourite and Rig Pig. Vampire won. A nice crisp clean sharp hoppy easy drinking pilz.

Softer maltier body than typical for the style. Thin aroma Nice peppery hop body and finish. For a brewpub a nice example.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap and in bottles, Lake Bonavista location. I was told by the server that this is a new pilsener recipe. Medium golden, generous soapy white head that laces early on. Grainy aroma with distinct light tropical fruit nuances. Clean pale grains with a firm bitterness in the finish. Crisp and clean. An absolutely spot-on pils, nice hops and really solid bitterness reminiscent of northern German examples. Very very good pilsener.
Earlier Rating: 3/5/2007 Total Score: 3.4
Clear gold with a creamy white head generating nice lacing. Fresh biscuity aroma. Deliciously malty with a beautifully balanced hoppy bitterness and clean finish. This is an excellent lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden with a small white top that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma of earth, grass and yeast with some malt sweetness. Taste is yeast with a nice sharp bitterness from the noble saaz. Easy drinking Czech Pils but could use a little more all around.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden with minimal head. Aromas show balance of pilsner malts and noble hops - true to style. Crisp, clean, with an ample hop presence and a dry finish. Nice level of carbonation (not too much). Would have again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single bottle purchased from Brewters Brew Pub on 11th ave SW in Calgary, AB on 02/24/2012. Colour: Medium yellow with low white head. Nose: Immediate mix of marshmellow and toffee, then settles into fresh dough without losing the background of sweetness. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Creamy and chewy. Caramel comes out with some munchable slightly roasted grains middle to late. Slightly too sweet for its type.
