COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first pilsner was brewed in 1842, over a hundred years ago, in the Bohemian town of Plzen. Revolutionary at the time, it was a fired-brewed beer characterized by a rich golden colour, sweet malty flavour and an abundance of hops. Our brewmaster visited the Czech Republic to study their methods and in honour of our 20th anniversary we are proud to share his interpretation of this classic beer style. Similar to original pilsners, our direct fire brewing process and combination of specialty malts yield a beer with a deep golden colour and delicious malt flavours. Natural spring water creates a soft pure background on which Czech hops impart a fresh fragrant aroma and bitter finish.

Bottle. Mild aromas of light malt, grains and fruit. Grainy flavour, very light bitterness, soft citrus. Decent mouthfeel for a pilsener, but really mediocre otherwise. Meh.

lesifflebiere (1210) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2013
Blonde dorée mince dans laquelle les céréales blondes dominent à l’odeur, mais qui laisse poindre aussi du sucre à glacer et du toffee. En bouche, sucre, caramel écossais (diacétyls peut-être), mais peu de traces de l’amertume promise par le style. Une pils typiquement canadienne, à peine au-dessus de la moyenne, et sans aucun doute l’une des offrandes les plus ennuyantes de Creemore. Agréable et désaltérante, mais là s’arrêtent ses qualités.

Pours a clear and dark golden with a big white head that fades fast but leave good lacing. Aroma is herbal, earthy, vegetal. I usually call it "tobacco" but this time I am not so sure. There are some toasted grains in there for sure. Taste is not too sweet and slightly bitter. Flavors of cereals, mostly. Texture is oily, carbonation sufficient. It never feels watery and is never hard to drink. It’s just that it is pretty unremarkable...

mcberko (6035) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap at Craft Beer Market Vancouver, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grass, corn and other adjuncts. Flavour is similar, with grass, crisp crackery malts, and a slight sweetness. Drinkable and clean, but not the most elegant pilsner. Decent.

Cantabrian (782) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 24, 2013
Aroma of Karamalz and unripe rock melons. Flavour has more bitterness, grassy, with citrus and hay. Crisp as a Pilsener should be, but meh... Tick!

though I could be wrong on that. Pours golden with some decent duration head. Taste has a little bitterness and some crips malt. A touch of sweetness on the long term aftertaste. Alright for style. Tall can.
