COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Racer Pilsner is brewed in the classic Bavarian tradition, using only the finest two-row barley, and hops from the Hallertau region of Germany. This light and golden Pilsner has a distinct hop aroma and flavour, with a dry, crisp finish.

What’s Inside:
Malts – German and Canadian Malt
Hops – Perle and Hallertauer Tradition

Clear light yellow color. Light hop aroma also some grains. Taste is crisp and refreshing. Finishes a little dry, pretty good for a Pilsner though

BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
355 ml can from a six-pack from Real Canadian Liquorstore, served in a goblet. Pours a brilliant golden hue with fine, moderate carbonation and a soapy, short-lived white head that leaves an island of webby lace. Aroma is of biscuity malt and hay/grass, with woody noble hops; flavor is lightly honeyish, toasty-crisp, fine, with that nice peppery pilsner note at the end of the sip. Thin, clean-finished. Central City and Red Racer deliver an excellent and very quaffable brew to compete with pils peers like Fernie’s Project 9.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Can from sobeys. Date stamp of April 2015. Pours golden with a foamy head and lots of bubbles. Aromas of faint malt and somewhat musty. Very mild malty note. Not very crisp or refreshing. Tastes past its prime.

slowrunner77 (9421) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Can. Not sure of age. Crisp feel, but a little boring otherwise. Light hay and cereal malt. Not bad, just ho hum.

bulldogops (1682) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Rating #1340. 2.12.2014. 341mL bottle #2 from CC/P49 Mystery Box. Clear yellow colour, nice white foam, medium retention. Aroma is pleasant, generously hopped. Mouthfeel is bubbly and crisp, medium carbonation. Taste is hint of sweet malt, dries out in the fairly smooth finish with a nice hoppy presence. Delicious.

piscator34 (2284) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 8, 2015
Can. Straw yellow in colour with strong carbonation. Fairly neutral aroma, maybe some faint grainy malt and minerals. Flavors are of wet grain, wet stones and a bit of grassy-herbal hop. The malts tend to linger a bit on the finish as well. Serviceable, but a bit on the bland side. Could be cleaner.

ljthiessen (1045) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Pale straw yellow pour, a little cloudy, with a thin white head. Aroma is corn and cereal grain, sweet, but not cheap and skunky - smells like a good pilsener. Flavour better, some grainy malt, a bit grassy.
