3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour, medium white head. Decent grassy hops, some nice bready, if slightly overly sweet malts. Good mouthfeel, carb is a tad too soft. The flavor is a little muddled, lacks some crispness. The finish is lightly bitter with the hops making themselves known. I think its a rebrand of the old JR brickman pils. Arguably the only drinkable waterloo product.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 ml can from LCBO (part of Seasonal Collection Mixer). Pours a clear golden yellow with average white head. Aroma is cereal grains and a fairly prominent grassiness. Flavour is similarly grainy and grassy with just a dull bitterness in the finish. Average body. Pretty forgettable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
473 mL Can. Pale gold body with a 1-finger foamy head settling to a thin but tenacious layer leaving foamy ribs on the glass as it is sipped. Aroma of light sweet malts with pronounced notes of yeast and bread crust, and grassy / resiny hops. Sweet light malts with a lemon hint dominate in the flavor, a sharp lemon /grapefruit rind aftertaste, and lemon rind tapering off to its outer peel in the finish. A summer picnic beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can: Pours a clear gold with a 2 finger puffy cap which reduce to a surface foam that laces the glass. Fairly well carbonated. Aroma is faint good bready malts and some northern brewer hops. Flavour is lightly malty with decent hop bittering to balance…fast clean dry finish. A serviceable all gristed malt Canadian premium Pilsner – certainly thinner and not as good as their founder’s Pilsner but better than the brick has brewed for a long while.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
473 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear light golden with a so-so white head.
Aroma: Some oddly peppery and pungent grassy hops, corn/cereal/grain, sort of oddly perfumed and floral, not very nice.
Palate: Medium body, reasonably soft effervescence.
Flav.: A cloying, not very nice cereal/grain maltiness, light grassy hops, cardboard, blech; dry with reasonable bitterness and an oddly sweet-tasting, mildly grassy finish.
This is pretty lame.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can from the waterloo spring pack. clear light yellow with a lasting white head. minimal nose of 2 row, some adjunct in there as well, no hops. theflavour is clean, very basic, enough hopping to balance but there isnt any pernounced hop flavour or bitterness. a good north american pale lager but not nearly as enjoyable as any good czech or german pils.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473 mL can. Pours a clear straw with a huge puffy white head. Clean, malty nose with cereal, lemon, honey and gentle hop aromas. Sweet but crisp with a touch of hop bitterness. A real quality pilsner.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of the Waterloo 2013 Spring pack at the LCBO. Pours a yellow straw colour with a foamy white head that gives out dirty lacing. Mild cereal grain malt nose with just a tad of Saaz hop. The hop appears a little more in the taste, adding a spicy bite to it at the start and finishing on the malt, lingering a bit. Nice crisp, medium-bodied brew that is pretty refreshing. Quite a nice Canadian pilsner, that does not have the rusty hop that most European Pils have.
