tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JUN 7, 2012
Really inviting floral and lightly spicy hop nose is supported by a pleasant, lightly grainy malt profile. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a slight, white, fine bubbles head that lasts well and leaves some lace. Flavour is as the aroma promises - plenty of floral and spicy hops, moderate bitterness and lovely cereal, grainy malt character. Medium light body with fairly strong, lightly prickly carbonation. Really reminds me of Christofel Blond which is a personal favourite. Well done! Enjoyed on tap as Gary Lohin (of Red Racer)’s Hoppy Pilsner at the Alibi Room.

guil0000 (248) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a clear yellow color with a a medium white bubbly head. Floral hops on the nose with some citrus (I got grapefruit). Some Basic grain malt on the nose also. Taste is sweet but still crisp and the dry hop finish compliments everything quite well. Well made beer.

jdobbs (363) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), with light notes of DMS and butter. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter.

355ml. Very good for a lager. Nice European character. Dry, clean, assertively bitter.

pictoman (456) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Poured from 355mL can. Clear, blonde with minimal white head. Aroma quite generic grainy. Light, sweet, cereal flavour. Not bad.

houblonchien (89) - CANADA - APR 15, 2014
A great example of pils. Yellow-golden in the glass with a nice white head. Nice lacing. Floral hops on the nose with a hint of citrus. The hops give a crisp finish. Well balanced on the tongue.

lesifflebiere (1213) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Grosses bulles maintenant un tapis de mousse blanche sur ce breuvage doré limpide et bien mince. En nez, sucre, houblon et maïs. La bouche est bien sèche en finale, mais l’ensemble est assez sucré, ce qui fait que l’amertume est relative. Désaltérante, totalement dans le style (si on considère celui-ci comme étant une pils allemande ou même une keller), elle est agréable mais pas inoubliable, manquant de caractère et d’originalité.

Nice little beer. Lots of spice and floral notes. Decent amount of bread but stood out quite well on it’s own.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
A little hazier than I’m expecting from a pils. There is a noticeable hop presence in the aroma and flavour that lends a floral quality to both. The palate is very smooth on this one making it very sessionable. Would benefit from a touch more bitterness on the back end and clearing of the haze from the appearance.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle, shared with Rockley. Medium golden yellow with a dense white head that retains beautifully. Fragrant floral hops provide an inviting aroma. The clean, firm grainy palate is complimented beautifully by delicate orchard-blossom floral hop character and a moderately bitter finish. How does this not score any higher? I thought this was a magnificent pils. Refreshing and characterful, clean and crisp.

Ferris (3085) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle - Sweet light malt nose. Clear gold with a rich white head. Bread, grains and a nice mild hop bitterness. A surprisingly nice flavorful Pils.
