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.

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.

Can. Not sure of age. Crisp feel, but a little boring otherwise. Light hay and cereal malt. Not bad, just ho hum.

bulldogops (1681) - 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.

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 (969) - 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.

Umm...not bad. Typical pilsener. Pretty grain driven with a hoppy finish. I find it a bit watery. Average at best.

In bottle ... very easy drinking, light bodied pilsner. Taste of grain and cereal with a little bitter/hoppy finish. Overall, not a bad option in the pilsner category
