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.

Listigovers (904) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Nice pale gold colour and a ton of sparkle. Smells somewhat sweet and tastes on the sweet side with a bit of grain, not enough dryness for me but easy to drink and okay.

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 (10116) - 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.

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.
